Former NSW Premier Barrie ­Unsworth and wife, Pauline have ­quietly sold their Mona Vale townhouse as they downsize locally.

They’ve had the abode for 14 years in the Max Delmege built project, Platinum by the Sea. The four bedroom townhouse cost $1.7m in 2006.

The couple have been the longest owners in the row of five which hasn’t seen a sale since 2011 when two three bedders sold for $1.45m. Domain’s Nik and Karen Vuko secured the recent sale having offered $3m guidance.

Unsworth’s home, with an internal lift, has 430sqm on titles across its four levels.

The top level is the master suite, with walk in wardrobe, ensuite and sitting room. Its balcony offers ocean views.

It was after Neville Wran’s 1986 ­decision to quit politics that Unsworth was elected ALP leader. He just scrapped a win in the Rockdale by-election having moved from the Upper House and his Turramurra homebase. Unsworth’s time as Premier was short-lived as Labor lost the March 1988 election, and he retired from parliament in 1991.
