Real Housewives Of Sydney star Krissy Marsh can proceed with plans to buy a Noosa holiday house this Christmas after securing the sale of her Double Bay property.
This is the second time Ms Marsh has “sold” the property — she got to keep the 5 per cent deposit when she exchanged at about $4.25 million in June.
The Hong Kong “purchaser” was unable to settle.
In its most recent campaign, Ray White TRG principal Gavin Rubinstein had a $3.8 million guide ahead of a scheduled December 10 auction.
He was unable to say whether the result was above or below that guide when contacted after the sold sticker went up on the three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment in the Bay Residences at 24/18 Bay St.
In last week’s Wentworth Courier story, Mr Rubinstein said the auction campaign had reinvigorated interest in the property.
“It’s a single-level, beautifully designed apartment with almost 250 sqm of internal space — it’s a great deal,” Mr Rubinstein said.
His tight confidentiality agreement also prevented him from giving any information about the purchaser — even whether it was a downsizer, professional couple or investor.
But it would be a great option for an owner-occupier of any type.
The apartment is house-like — plenty of living space and separate areas for quiet contemplation or relaxation.
It’s also full of natural light, with open-plan living and dining areas opening to an entertainment terrace.
The well-equipped island kitchen has stone benchtops and top-of-the-range Miele gas appliances.
And the kitchen adjoins a separate casual lounge and media room.
All three bedrooms are a decent size with extensive built-in wardrobe space. Two of the bedrooms — including the master — have ensuites and open to a private enclosed balcony.
Other highlights include a separate study nook, ducted airconditioning, integrated sound, a large internal laundry and convenient lift access to double parking and a storage cage.
The residence is in the heart of Double Bay close by excellent eateries, boutiques and the harbour foreshore, while just a short walk from village shops, Edgecliff Station and express city buses.
Ms Marsh, husband John and their three children live in Dover Height.
She bought the apartment for $3.5 million in 2015 and it was her home when Foxtel filmed the opening season of the reality show.
The plan had been to sell the unit and buy a holiday home in Noosa.
