The Berrima-bound musical couple Mahalia Barnes and husband Ben Rodgers have yet to sell sold their contemporary Redfern Watertower factory conversion, after being pulled from its scheduled weekend auction

It now comes with a $1,425,000 asking price having had an initial $1,475,000 buyers guide through Charles Touma at BresicWhitney.

Occupying a treetop position in the block, the three bedroom, two bathroom home features oversized windows and high ceilings.

The split level apartment, with 115 sqm inside space, has been renovated by the couple who bought the apartment for $665,000 in 2010.

The renovation included a new kitchen.

Barnes converted space into a studio for musos to work in.

Barnes and Rodgers were briefly followed into the block by Mahalia's half brother, TV presenter David Campbell and wife Lisa, who bought next door for $750,000.

The Campbell's traded up to Elizabeth Bay in 2014, selling their three bedroom apartment for $950,000.

Mahalia Barnes was raised in Bowral and is the daughter of Aussie rock star Jimmy Barnes, who lives in the Southern Highlands.

She began her career as part of children's pop group The Tin Lids with sisters Eliza-Jane, Elly-May and brother Jackie.
