Humble holiday cottage with incredible views mysteriously demolished as millionaire celebrity neighbour blows up ‘very dangerous’ home

  • Barry Robertson finds tin shack completely destroyed without his permission
  • Local police tracked down the businessman, but have yet to determine who hired him

A cliff-top tin shack with incredible sea views has been mysteriously destroyed when millionaire real estate neighbours blew up ‘very dangerous’ home.

A month ago, Barry Robertson, 65, discovered his one-bedroom cottage on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula had been demolished without his permission.

On June 6, the same day, the Robertson family’s cottage was razed to the ground, and a nearby cottage owned by a group of eight was partially destroyed.

The cottage, with sweeping views of Kangaroo Island, had been in Mr Robertson’s home for almost 60 years when it was stripped down to concrete slabs.

South Australian Police detectives have tracked down a businessman who was found to have demolished a building, but the man who employed him has yet to be identified.

The local council also confirmed that both shacks are on crown land, not private land, as they are located in Deep Creek National Park.

The advertiser reported that Mr. Robertson’s cottage was next to a piece of land owned by US real estate agent Julian Galbraith Johnston.

Mr Johnston bought the private land for $900,000 in July 2021 and plans to build a $2 million home and give it to his elderly parents.

He had previously contacted shed owners in the area and complained that the structures were “illegal”.

Daily Mail Australia has not suggested that Mr Johnston was involved in the removal of the shed.

“I’m not asking anyone to go and demolish the silos on June 6,” he told The Advertiser.

“I’ve been told by builders and contractors that the tin storage shed is very dangerous to anyone walking on the property and any Sir Hans Heisen Walker.”

Mr Johnston said the area was windy and he feared a piece of corrugated iron could come off one of the sheds and “seriously injure someone”.

In January, Mr Johnston said he wanted to resolve the issue “amicably” with the lodge owner and did not want to take legal action.

Mr. Johnston is a big-name real estate agent who has helped Hollywood A-listers including Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez find properties.

The ruined cottage has been in the Robertson family for four generations, brought by Mr. Robertson’s late father Jack after buying it from the Cooper Brewing family in 1964.

The cottage is 12 m² in size and consists of a bedroom, a kitchen, ensuite and firewood.

Victor Harbour Council said Mr Robertson would only be allowed to rebuild on site if the structure met current building standards – which is expected to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Daily Mail Australia contacted Mr Johnston for comment.
