The late Ainsley Gotto’s stylish Edgecliff apartment has sold for $1,587,000.

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

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

There was $1.5 million price guidance. 

Gotto paid $1.2 million for the three bedroom, 155 sqm apartment with harbour views in 2007.

Auctioneers Lawsons sold the contents of her Edgecliff Road apartment.

It included portraits of Gotto among the 262 lots on offer, including an elegant June Mendoza painting (above) which fetched $15,000 when sold to a family member after the National Portrait Gallery rejected its donation.
