The Edgewater, Kirribilli unit once owned by the late king of television variety, Graham 'Gra Gra' Kennedy has snappily sold for $3.35 million. 

The waterfront apartment block offering at 6/25 Waruda Street was sold by investor Elizabeth Stuart who was expecting $3 million.

It was 1984 when the television industry legend bought into the Waruda Street block. Kennedy, the six-time Gold Logie winner who died in 2005, sold in 1993 for $750,000.

It had been his Sydney bolthole after selling his Viret Street, Hunters Hill riverfront home for $820,000 in 1987 and then buying in the Southern Highlands at Canyonleigh.

At the time Kennedy dismissed reports of a departure from Sydney to his home town, Melbourne, one suggesting he was missing "the weddings and the restaurants."

"I think they might have meant I miss the wide streets," he told me.   

For a time the apartment block was celebrity city for ex-Melbournites as other owners included fellow television entertainer Daryl Somers and Peter Faiman.
