Actor Holly Brisley resells Bondi Beach home with forfeited deposit windfall

The sub-penthouse seventh floor apartment in The Bondi at Bondi Beach owned by former Home & Away star Holly Brisley and husband, Paul Ford has been sold.

And this time hopefully the sale will stick.

Title Tattle gathers it fetched around $5.25 million plus just days after being passed in on a $4.7 million vendor bid at its late 2013 auction.

Its sale price has not been disclosed.

The three-bedroom apartment at 702/152 Campbell Parade, Bondi Beach had been previously exchanged for around $5.3 million in March, but the buyer, an undisclosed mining executive, didn’t settle and lost the deposit. It is understood, but unconfirmed, it was a standard 10% deposit, so adding around $530,000 to the proceeds to around $5.78 million.

It sold through the McGrath agent Steven Chen who had the relisting initially with $5.5 million hopes.

Actress Holly Brisley, best remembered for her role as a troublemaker on Home And Away, and her property investor husband, Paul, was seeking $7 million plus for their opulently appointed half-floor residence on its late 2011 listing.

It has views that stretch across the beach and bay from North Bondi to Tamarama from the northern side of the building

It has three bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms, and its luxurious appointments feature custom American oak joinery.

There’s also C-Bus 2 intelligence system with automated blinds and curtains. 

The couple were among the buyers who snapped up a 2006 off-the-plan apartment for $6.75 million in the Bondi complex, the apartment block on Campbell Parade that replaced the Bondi Beachside Inn on its 2009 completion.

It comes with 250-square-metre internal space but is 486 square metres all up.

Not all the Bondi Beach prestige unit market has been in decline, although it still awaits formal public valuation confirmation of the September 2012 sales marketing of the nearby complex, the Pacific Bondi Beach.

The sale of the apartments in the Pacific Bondi Beach - credited as Sydney's then most successful post-global financial crisis apartment sales marketing campaign - secured bullish prices per square ranging from about $15,000 to $45,000.
