Singer-songwriter Delta Goodrem is seemingly still home hunting for a Sydney bolthole.

Her whisper-quiet searching has been mostly in village locations close to the Harbour since returning from the US.

The sightings of Goodrem, who recently portrayed Olivia Newton John in the Channel 7 biopic, Hopelessly Devoted to You, have increased in recent times.

Having shot to fame in 2002 as the shy school girl Nina Tucker in Neighbours, she signed onto Sony Music at 15 and released her debut album, Innocent Eyes, in 2003 which topped the ARIA Albums Chart for an all-time record of 29 consecutive weeks.

The songbird hasn't owned in her name in Sydney since 2014, but has been spotted seeking her next acquisition for almost the past year. 

She checked out a $3 million freestanding home with pool on the lower north shore late last year, but it has been mostly apartments attracting her attention.

She was most recently seen at the Hampton, a 1920s apartment complex in Potts Point. 

She was papped with the talent agent Joe Dadic and her mother Lea, who still own the Hills district family home that was bought for $60,000 in the early 1980s.

Goodrem has also checked out apartments in The Embassy building in Double Bay, a new JPRA-designed boutique block of just 14 apartments that has seen recent sales fetch over $2 million for two bed apartments.

She has signalled her interest was somewhere "quiet and charming yet still close enough to the city to feel the buzz."

"Location is on the top of my list, somewhere with access to amenities such as cafes and restaurants especially for my morning coffee," she said.

Despite no permanent place yet to call home, she recently engaged the Warriewood property styling company, Furnish and Finish to style her modern Sydney apartment.

It is a bespoke colour scheme including splashes of bright neutrals, soft pinks and earthy tones, bringing a lift to the living spaces that had Delta’s essential piano and musical instruments. 

“I really wanted a space that felt like home but had no clue where to even start," she confessed.

"Now I have a home that’s comfy, cosy and elegant and provides the perfect place to come home to whenever I am back in Sydney.” Delta said.

The Sydney-born star, who has twice mentored winners over the past seven years as a coach on the TV show The Voice Australia, previously owned at Woolloomooloo Finger Wharf.

She sold the apartment for $1.7 million in 2014, just before the recent boom really took off, having paid $1.41 million in boom time 2003. 

The two bedroom 170 square metre loft apartment, which came with expansive water views, has recently traded again for $2.65 million.

She then wanted USD$3.6 million for her five bedroom Mediterranean style home in Los Angeles which she bought on leaving Australia.

It sold USD$3.4 million having paid $3.1 million in 2010.

It was marketed as a "unique celebrity owned, gated estate perched high in the Hollywood Hills offering gracious living and gorgeous panoramic views".

She has 450,000 followers on Instagram.
