Kerryn Phelps relists Potts Point investment apartment
Title TattleDecember 7, 2020

Former independent Member for Wentworth Dr Kerryn Phelps and wife Jackie Stricker-Phelps are again seeking buyers for their Potts Point ­investment apartment.

They initially put the two-bedroom apartment in The Rex building up for sale last year, but it was pulled from its December auction, when they were seeking $1.68 million.

This time round Phillips Pantzer Donnelley agent Debbie Donnelley has a $1.45 million to $1.55 million price guide for its October 8 auction.

The apartment has two levels with 127sqm space with views across Fitzroy Gardens and a car space.

The couple paid $715,000 in 2008, which was less than its $780,000 off-the-plan price in the block ­designed by Burley Katon Halliday in 2004.

There was a $1.4 million two-bedroom sale last month which was first sold at $750,000 in the Denis O’Neil-developed complex.

The couple will be hoping to ride the wave of price growth that has seen Dame Nellie Melba’s former old-style Macleay St apartment nearby under offer for a rumoured $6.625 million.

The apartment last sold for $4 million in 2016, but there had since been an ­extensive Xavier Hinde renovation, which included the purchase and utilisation of roof space, by the Burrell family from Adelaide.

Melba’s residency was in the early 1930s.
