The Fleming grocery family matriarch, Lois Fleming has snappily sold her Darling Point apartment for $8.5 million. 

It had been listed for late August auction through Raine & Horne agents Max Spartalis and Aaron Fleming, her grandson.

She was married to Jim "The Grocer" Fleming from 1955 to 1982 with the racing industry couple having three sons, Lee, Dean and Paul. 

As a model Lois Wherrett was best known for her quintessential 1954 Max Dupain photograph with Hugin sewing machine in a Sydney street.

Her Ken Woolley-designed The Point Villas apartment was bought new in 2002 for $5,375,000 from developers Bill Shipton and Mark Bouris.
