The penthouse in Darlinghurst's Top of the Town apartment complex has been bought by property developer Duncan Hardie and his wife, Lyn.

He has paid $10.9 million to former media executive Cameron O'Reilly, who had bought it from the Sutton car dealership family for $8.25 million in 2007.

The dual-level apartment, sold through Alison Coopes at Agency by Coopes, has been rebuilt with swathes of glass and marble.

The three bedroom, three bathroom apartment has 700 sqm of space including its impressive rooftop lawn.

Duncan Hardie recently sold the Hunter Valley's Sweetwater winery.

He built the Mediterranean-style residence and commissioned Country Trader's Geoff Clark to fill it with antiques from across Europe.

Inspired by southern European vineyard estates, the 48 hectare holding came with reduced hopes after being listed with a $30 million price tag in 2015, but sold at a substantial discount to property developer Sam Arnaout.

Hardie has long aspired to an inner city penthouse being the $19 million off the plan buyer of a Wylde Street, Potts Point penthouse that failed to be constructed.
