Nicole Kidman may have new neighbours as her Rosedale record is finally broken

The Milsons Point apartment that adjoins Nicole Kidman's occasional Sydney bolthole has come down from its listing site.

There's mystery as to the offering which was marketed last month with $8 million hopes through McGrath agent Nigel Mukhi who had mid-week deadline for offers.

Kidman and Keith Urban own all but one of the top floor apartments of the Latitude building having previously merged two apartments with the decor redesign done by the acclaimed interior designer Blainey North.

The couple's first purchase on the 21st floor of the block was a 420 square metre apartment they bought from Yellow Brick Road chairman Mark Bouris for around $6 million in 2009.

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

Meanwhile, the far South Coast Rosedale property record set in 2004 by Hollywood star has been finally broken by the sale of a four-bedroom house just a few doors down.

The Knowlman Road holding sold through LJ Hooker Malua Bay agent Mark Maranion for $1.637 million.

The price was above the $1.55 million price secured for Kidman’s former land holding which she sold in 2010. Kidman had spent $4 million on her short-lived amalgamation on the coastal strip in 2004.

It was 2004 when the late Angus Hawley, Nicole's then brother-in-law, first swooped into town by helicopter to bid on the rare beachfront offering offered by the Knowlman farming family from Goulburn, who had owned property there since paying £35 in 1929.

Knowlman Road's clifftop position comes with North East ocean views, Maranion said.

“It’s easy to see why Nicole Kidman has been drawn to the area.”

The latest buyers are from Forbes.

Kidman retains the Southern Highlands retreat Bunya Hill, a 45 hectare property at Sutton Forest that cost $6.5 million in 2008.

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