The largest single level apartment in Sydney, on the 40th level of the Horizon building in Darlinghurst, has been sold to media heiress Francesca Packer-Barham.

The apartment was recently recreated by Melbourne's MIM Design who were commissioned by the Graham family to design the luxury apartment.

The whole floor sub-penthouse, spanning 565 sqm of internal floor space, has four bedroom, each with a marble ensuite, as well as self-contained quarters with its own living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

There are three separate living areas, one with a fireplace, as well as a media room.

Herringbone Oak floors and Cote D’Azure marble feature throughout.

The apartment also has the latest in mod cons, with keyless entry, facial recognition and automated doors.

Entry to the apartment is through a lavish marble and brass private lift lobby. 

It was listed with $20 million initial hopes.

The renovation was almost a year-in-the making for the 565 sqm of internal space.

It has 710 sqm including balconies and garaging.

The recent auction of the five-bedroom, five-bathroom apartment with eight-car garage failed to attract any bids with just the two registered bidders, one of whom was asked for proof of funds.

The Melbourne-based Graham family bought the empty shell for $9.83 million in 2017.

Mim Design told The Wentworth Courier their vision was to pay homage to Harry Seidler who designed the tower.

The developer Bob Ell once owned it selling it for $6.7 million in 2009.
