The country's top academic couple, University of Melbourne vice-chancellor Glyn Davis and wife, vice-chancellor at Monash University Margaret Gardner, have sold their Melbourne CBD apartment.

The Bates Smart-designed 35 Spring Street apartment that cost the couple $3.24 million off the plan just last year went to private mid-week auction.

There was price guidance of $3.45 million to $3,795,000.

Abercromby's agents Jock Langley and Sam Goddard have not revealed the price secured for the 34th floor three bedroom, two bathroom apartment that came with two terraces with views that span to the Dandenong Ranges.

Davis and Gardner are well regarded as the ultimate power couple, acting as the vice-chancellor's of two of Australia's largest and most highly ranked and esteemed universities.

Davis has been vice-chancellor and Principal of the University of Melbourne since January 2005 and is the Professor of political science in the faculty of arts.

Gardner has been vice-chancellor of Monash University since 2014 having previously worked at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology for nine years in the same role.

She has served in executive positions with Deakin University, Griffith University and Queensland University of Technology.
