The passing of time has been a blessing for the bestselling author and TV presenter Tara Moss and writer husband Brendt Sellheim when it came to their Sydney CBD property.

They didn't sell their Bathurst Street apartment five years ago after their tree change shift to the Blue Mountains.

They had sought to offload the two bedroom Lumiere Apartment with $1.06 million price hopes in 2012, however the sale didn't happen.

Now after Sydney's stellar five year property price boom, their redundant city pad comes with a $1.65 million price guide through Focus Property Management agent Bernie Mitchell.

The 15th level, 107 sqm apartment - which cost $850,000 purchase in 2008 - is in the complex designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners.

After the loft apartment failed to sell, it became an $895 a week rental, then $1,000 and most recently had a $1,150 a week asking rent, reflecting a stellar seven percent yield.

They reside at their $585,000 Blackheath retreat, having relocating to the Blue Mountains 18 months before their now six year old daughter Sapphira was born.

Moss, who was born in Canada, has written 11 bestselling fiction and non-fiction books, has recently hosted the critically acclaimed ABC documentary 'Cyberhate with Tara Moss', as well as being the executive producer and writer of the program.

Tara recently spent some downtime in Byron Bay, posing for a photograph on Instagram by a swimming pool.

"Enjoying my annual 4.5 minutes of sun exposure before returning to my usual pale-person-reading-in-the-shade mode," accompanied the image.

Tara, who turned red head this week, began life as a model at age 14 and moved to Australia in 1996 on a modelling assignment.

She gained a diploma from the Australian College of Journalism a year later, then the following year she won the Scarlett Stiletto Young Writer's Award for her story Psycho Magne

Her debut novel, Fetish, was written when she was 23, and published in 1999.

It went on to win the Sassy Award for Best Novel that year, and was shortlisted for the 2000 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Novel.

Moss's path was destined to turn to writing as she penned Stephen-King type stories to entertain her friends when she was 10.

She married poet and philosophy professor Dr. Berndt Sellhem at a winery in Margaret River in 2009.

Moss is a UNICEF Ambassador for Child Survival and has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2007.

Since 2000 she has been an ambassador for the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children.
