The Sir Norman Foster-designed Lumiere Sydney CBD apartment of cyber bullying warrior Tara Moss is under contract.

Moss, who recently hosted the critically acclaimed ABC documentary Cyberhate, has taken advantage of the booming Sydney property market, although it did spend 88 days on the market.

She had failed to sell the two bedroom Lumiere apartment back in 2012 when it came with $1.06 million hopes. After the five year property boom, that seems to be slowing down, it's been sold presumably around its $1.65 million asking price through Focus Property Management agent Bernie Mitchell.

It's a huge win for Moss, who will have scored nearly 100 percent price growth since her $850,000 purchase in 2008, a year before she married poet and philosophy professor Brendt Sellheim, 

The unit had also been a consistent rental after Moss' tree change eight years ago to the Blue Mountains with her Sellheim.

The couple live in a three bedroom Blackheath retreat with their six year old daughter.

The acreage on the outskirts of town had been operating as the popular weekend cafe Bushrock Cafe before they bought it for $585,000 in 2009. 

In the Sydney rental market, Moss found tenant for the Bathurst Street apartment initially at $895 a week, then $1,000, and most recently $1,150 a week, a steady increase over its five years rental stint.

Set in the 2007 Foster + Partners designed Lumiere Tower, the 107 sqm apartment features a large courtyard from its commanding 15th level position.

The Canada born TV presenter has been handy with the pen since she published her debut novel when she was 23.

Named Fetish, the novel went on to win the Sassy Award for Best Novel in 1999 and was shortlisted for the 2000 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Novel.

Moss, UNICEF Australia's national ambassador, has written 11 bestselling fiction and non-fiction books.

The much in demand public speaker recently gave a keynote talk in Adelaide at the Mobile-ising Women in Business conference.

Her ABC six part series tells her own story of dealing with online threats and examines the phenomenon of online abuse.
