Celebrity couple Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have an opportunity to create a whole floor penthouse at their already enlarged Milsons Point bolthole.

They own all but one of the three top floor apartments of the Latitude Building in Milsons Point.

They've previously merged two apartments and the latest listing would give them the chance to create a super penthouse overlooking Sydney Harbour no doubt with acclaimed Sydney interior designer Blainey North back to decorate.

The couple's first purchase in the block was a 420 sqm apartment they bought from Yellow Brick Road chairman Mark Bouris for around $6 million in 2009.

Three years later they secured the 380 sqm unit next door for just over $7 million.

Now the third and final apartment not in their ownership on the 21st floor is up for sale through McGrath Estate Agents with offers closing June 8. 

Graham Mirabito, the former chief of property giant CoreLogic, wants to downsize.

Graham and wife Michelle paid $3,795,000 for the two level, three bathroom apartment in 2007.

The purchase of the Mirabito home would see a whole floor amalgamation with over 1,300 sqm of living space. 

It is a long way from her first home, a 73 sqm unit in Mosman which cost only $81,000 in 1987.

Kidman also owns a $2.68 million 19th floor apartment in the Latitude block, utilised as a home office. 

Nicole and Keith maintain their Southern Highlands retreat Bunya Hill, a 45 hectare black Angus cattle stud at Sutton Forest that cost $6.5 million in 2008.

Two years ago Kidman gave Vogue a video tour of the property that has long been hidden from the public eye behind hedging.

The 1878 Georgian mansion with wide sandstone verandas, pressed-metal ceilings and 10 marble fireplaces was once leased as a vice-regal rural retreat for Lord Augustus Loftus, a governor of NSW in the colonial 1880s.

Nicole sold her three-storey Darling Point villa in 2009 for around $13 million which she bought with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

She was on the expansionary path then as they initially paid $4.2 million in 1995 to buy part of the Yarranabbe Road property, picking up the remainder for $4.75 million in 1998. 

Nicole and Keith still own their a farm in Tennessee, a house in California's Beverly Hills and another high-rise condo in New York.

The New York apartment in Chelsea, the heart of Manhattan's art district, cost them $US9.67 million.

The two level, 220 sqm fourth floor digs are diagonally across the road from the Gagosian Gallery.
