Arts guru Simon Mordant sells Darling Point penthouse

Arts philanthropists Simon and Catriona Mordant have sold their Darling Point penthouse after seven months on the market.

The apartment  had been for sale with $6 million plus hopes through Bill Malouf, of LJ Hooker Double Bay, who wouldn't comment on its eventual price.

Title Tattle suggested it could fetch around $6.5 million on its February listing.

The year's highest-priced apartment in Darling Point has been the Salacia, Yarranabbe Road penthouse  of the Solomon to Neil Sutton of the Suttons motor family, who already lives in the complex.

This week another whole-floor penthouse sold for $5.7 million after being listed by the Gowing retailing family.

Title Tattle understands the 18th-floor Retford Hall penthouse has been sold to another resident within the Thornton Street block who could potentially ambitiously connect the apartments.

The Mordant apartment, unemcumbered by any mortgage, had last traded for $5.25 million in 2002.

It was a 349-square-metre penthouse that spanned two levels in a Darling Point Road building designed by architects Peddle Thorp and Walker.

The Mordants listed the property in February following their $10.8 million purchase last year of a garden harbourfront Point Piper apartment in the Elk Developments project.
