Michael and Judy McMahon, from the iconic Rose Bay restaurant Catalina's, have decided to depart Potts Point after a little more than a year in the neighbourhood.

They are apparently off to Double Bay.

Their Potts Point apartment with views out towards the Opera House has been listed for sale.

After 15 years living opposite their harbourfront restraurant, they bought off the plan through Richardson & Wrench agent Andrew Hoggett, paying $2.6 million in 2013, then moving in on its mid-year 2015 settlement. 

Some 19 of the original 22 buyers still remain on the Wylde Street complex. The most recent sale was when the international jeweller Tony White sold for $3.35 million to his tenant, the airline industry executive Lisa Brock. White had paid $2.3 million off the plan.

Michael and Judy both began their careers with the late Len Evans, working at the legendary Bulletin Place. In 1978, they made the move to Gay and Tony Bilson's Berowra Waters Inn, Michael as floor manager and Judy as their first female waitress. 

The McMahon's own harbourfront restaurant has been running at Rose Bay now 22 years, with their children James and Kate involved.
