The former newsreader Helen Kapalos sold her "Offspring style" Collingwood factory conversion apartment at weekend auction.

Set in the sought after Foy & Gibson precinct, Kapalos’s two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, along with two car spaces, fetched $1.3 million.

The initial price guidance was between $980,000 to $1,078,000, but the guide for the two level apartment was raised to $1,095,000 to $1,204,5000 during the marketing after strong interest.

Abercromby's agents Sam Goddard sold the apartment to a couple in their 60s from regional Victoria who will use it as a city base, the Herald Sun reported.

The lower level features an open plan living, dining and kitchen area.

Its master retreat with ensuite sits on the upper level.

Kapalos paid $755,000 for the apartment in 2012 in the Bohemia block, just before her contract wasn't renewed by Network Ten who were cutting costs in the news room.

In 2013 Kapalos began presenting Today Tonight on the Seven Network but Kapalos then left commercial TV to direct documentaries.
