Aniek Baten, the widow of the lesbian legend Dawn O'Donnell, has sold their home in Mosman for a disappointing $6.6 million.

Paying $5.4 million in 2002, O'Donnell, once Abe Saffron's business partner, made her fortune from Sydney's gay saunas, nightclubs and sex shops.

After her 2007 death it was actors and animals, rather than Aniek Baten, her wife of 30 years, who emerged as the major beneficiaries of her $16 million estate.

Baten started legal action having been left $3 million but not their home in Shellbank Avenue.

It has now been quietly sold through Simeon Manners Property having been listed with initial $8 million hopes.
