RSL Queensland is selling a McMahons Point apartment in the iconic Blues Point Tower after it failed to be picked as the winning property in a recent Art Union Raffle.
The three-bedroom apartment at 144/14 Blues Point Rd, will go to auction on December 1 and is listed with a $2.2 million price guide.
This is slightly more than the $5 Art Union raffle ticket the winner could have had the property for.

It is also $40,000 less than the $2.240 million the RSL paid for it in March, according to CoreLogic data.
The living/ dining room has a Juliet balcony and airconditioning.
In August, the raffle offered one person the choice between the McMahons Point apartment and a waterfront Gold Coast home worth $1.71 million, with $555,000 in cashable gold bullion thrown in.
The winner, was a mother of three who selected the Gold Coast house in Broadbeach Waters with five bedrooms, swimming pool and a private jetty.
RSL Art Union CEO Tracey Bishop previously said they have two options on what to do with property that the winner does not pick.
“If it is popular with our customers, there is a chance that we will use the other property in a future draw, and if it isn’t, then we will sell it again,” she said.
The third bedroom may be the smallest, but it still has great views.
The bathroom has west views from the bath tub.
Listed with McMahons Point Real Estate agents Scott Issac and Craig Litchfield, the apartment will be open for its first inspection on Saturday.
Mr Issac said it was rare to find an apartment like this in McMahons Point.
“Three-bedders in this part of Sydney don’t really ever come on the market, so this is very unique and special,” he said.
The apartment is located on the 24th floor of Harry Seidler’s tower.

With an auction date of December 1, the new owner will be able to secure the property just in time for New Year’s Eve, which will give them a front-row seat thanks to its cracking views.

“The views are breathtaking, apart from the Harbour Bridge, you can see Barangaroo, all of North Sydney, Berrys Bay and beyond,” he said.
The renovated property has a single car park space and two bathrooms as well as two Juliet balconies.
Amenities include airconditioning, a building manager and security, plus an internal laundry.
The apartment is a short walk from McMahons Point ferry terminal which offers services to Circular Quay and Darling Harbour.
