The Real Housewives of Sydney star Krissy Marsh has moved back into her unsold Dover Heights home, and is loving its vast amount of space.

Her Double Bay apartment - which has been her base during the filming of the first series of RHOS - secured tenants mid-week, snapped up at around $2700 a week.

Marsh has been unpacking for the past fortnight at her luxury home after it was passed in at February auction.

The highest offer came in at $7.7 million to McGrath agent Peter Starr, but that wasn't enough for the property princess who was holding out for $8 million.

Architects Neil Mackenzie and Heidi Pronk of Mackenzie Pronk designed the home in 2009 taking its views towards the four headlands as inspiring the faux stone concept for the four level home.

The six bedroom home comes with a gym, cinema, heated plunge pool and a rooftop terrace.

There's even a so-called egg bath - imported from Italy - where you look out towards Bondi Beach with the champagne flute on the side, she told would-be buyers.

"Everything is absolutely state of the art," she said, adding that the space is something she missed while living in a rather compact China abode.
The former model - who moved from Brisbane at 18 - bought the building block for $1,975,000 in 2003 with her property developer husband, John.
It now home for their three children and two toy poodles, Bondi and Bronte who have come through quarantine.

The house still remains on the market while she hunts for the family's next project, which she insists will be in the east. 

"I can't say how much I am loving to be back, though we will move down the track," she said.

The $2,700 a week Double Bay apartment cost Marsh $3.5 million in 2015, when all the family were based in Shanghai.

Designed by architect Kann Finch, the three bedroom, three bathroom Bay Street apartment hit the market through LJ Hooker agent Dean Cassidy who suggested it was "unquestionably one of Double Bay's finest apartments."

The property princess - who was named as ambassador for the wishingwell out of home care charity this week - isn't the only Real Housewife active in the property market.

The former Miss Australia, Nicole Gazal O'Neil and husband, Adam, who is Queens Gate, London based, recently snapped up a home in Vaucluse for $7 million.

Marsh founded industrial and commercial agency Billicorp in 2003 which she sold 10 years later to LJ Hooker.

Her first Sydney property buy was in 1994 when she paid $260,000 for a two bedroom art deco apartment in Rose Bay which she sold a decade later for $620,000.
