Sydney lord mayoral aspirant Christine Forster and her partner Virginia Edwards have forked out $1.51 million on a Potts Point ­apartment.

They’ve bought it from the Maple-Brown rich-lister family, who had financial journalist Joe Aston as their tenant.

It was where he filmed his app­earances on the now defunct Financial Review Sunday television show.

On vacating the two-bedroom flat, Aston recently wrote of his displeasure at “turgid strangers with morbid delight” coming through the open for inspections held by Richardson & Wrench agent Greg McKinley.

He wrote “homelessness was preferable to the indignity”.

It sits in the 1951 Aaron M. Bolot-designed block on Wylde Street.

The fourth level, two bedroom apartment became available at $1,095 a week.

the Surry Hills couple quickly secured new tenants last month for the renovated apartment.

If Forster does make the move into the neighbourhood she’ll be crossing paths with Councillor Kerryn Phelps, who lives just up the street.
