The Sydney apartment that superstar Delta Goodrem sold for $1.7m has hit the market again … if only she’d hung onto it, now it’s expected to sell for $6m.
This is the three-bedroom Woolloomooloo Finger Wharf apartment that the 36-year-old singer, tipped to rejoin The Voice next year as a coach replacing Rita Ora, bought in 2003 as her first property after moving out of her parent’s home in the Hills District.
She paid $1.3m and sold it for $1.7m in 2014, so the property grew just $400,000 or 30 per cent over the 11 years she owned it.
Showing the extraordinary price growth we’re currently experiencing for property, provided the $6m guidance with LJ Hooker Double Bay’s David Malouf is achieved, she could have nabbed an extra $4.3m, or 253 per cent price growth over just six years.
Malouf, has had an incredible week of more than $45m sales in just a week, notes though, that the current owner has done a complete renovation and acquired a second car spot.
That’s boosted the property’s value considerably, since he bought it for $2.15m in 2019.
Goodrem should be happy enough in her current Sydney bolthole — her two-bedroom 180 sqm apartment in The Residence opposite Hyde Park, purchased for $4.825m in 2019, which will have also enjoyed considerable price growth.
The Woolloomooloo apartment, at 511/6E Cowper Wharf Roadway, is one of the largest in the prestige complex.
It has four-bedrooms and three bathrooms, a chef’s kitchen with bespoke cabinetry, Caestone benchtops, state-of-the-art Bosch induction cooktop, double ovens and a butler’s pantry.
The master suite includes a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with large spa.
The media room features a huge LCD screen and Sonos sound system while the second level has an open entertaining area, dual built-in study, two large bedrooms and a family bathroom.
And of course the views are incredible: a city panorama across the Royal Botanic Gardens from Centrepoint to the Harbour Bridge.
Malouf’s sales included a $32m sale in Olola Ave, Vaucluse, with his father, the legendary Bill Malouf; an $8m penthouse sale in Loftus Rd, Darling Point; and a $5.1m penthouse negotiation in Richmond Rose, Rose Bay.
