Channel 9 morning television host Sonia Kruger has quietly snapped up something special in Mosman, while still seeking buyers for her surplus Warrawee home.

The reputed $6.5 million plus price paid for her Mosman home purchase was a smart acquisition, neighbourhood wags suggest, as the stockbroker Richard Granger and his wife Sarah paid $6.8 million in the bullish 2007 market.

It was listed with estate agents Kingsley Yates in conjunction with John Sullivan who have both taken down the listing from their websites.

Her redundant Warrawee home comes with $3.75 million plus hopes through McConnell Bourn.

She's hoping the late 2015 timing is right to secure a good price at Warrawee as she's admitted the imposing abode had been bought at a bullish $3 million on the cusp of the GFC, and just before her six-year marriage to banker James Davies ended. 

"I've sat here waiting for property prices to recover, which they have" she said last last year adding she couldn't be bothered packing and moving. 

But after the new partner, television executive Craig McPherson and baby she's admitted she was keen to live closer to the harbour.

The five-bedroom, three story Warrawee house on 1391-square-metres was bought in 2008 for $3 million.

There's a manicured front garden and a rear parterre garden with pool. 

Her new contemporary beachside home on the prestigious Balmoral slopes has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a self-contained apartment.

Wrapped in private courtyards, the property features whole-floor living with cathedral ceilings, polished timber floors and custom-built cabinetry. 

The purchase marks Sonia's triumphant return to Mosman as she once had a two bedroom Musgrave Street apartment which was her first home when bought in 1999 for $490,000.

She currently owns a Dulwich Hill one bedroom investment property.
