The late Ainsley Gotto’s stylish Edgecliff apartment, which has views of Sydney Harbour, has now been listed for July 10 auction following the recent sale of its furnishings and artworks.

The former public servant who passed away in February is best remembered when serving as prime minister John Gorton’s principal private secretary in the late 1960s.

Georgia Cleary, of BradfieldCleary, has the listing of the Mount Stewart complex apartment, after instructions from the estate’s executors, retired politician Helen Coonan and solicitor Nicholas Eddy.

There is $1.5 million price guidance. 

Spanning 155 square metres, it comes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms at 1/363 Edgecliff Road.

Gotto, who had the personal motto prudens simplicitus (prudent simplicity), purchased the apartment in November 2007 for $1.2 million.
