Braith Anasta misses out on Jane Campion's Tamarama apartment

The retired footballer Braith Anasta missed out when a coastal Sydney apartment went to auction yesterday.

But acclaimed Kiwi film director, Dame Jane Campion scored when five of the 10 registered bidders competed for the Tamarama offering.

She managed to sell her 241 sqm investment property for $2.55 million through Bethwyn Richards of McGrath. 

The recenty separated Braith Anasta attended the auction, and was the underbidder at $2,545,000 at the onsite auction held on the apartment balcony.

Anasta attended with his mother, Kim who is downsizing after selling recently at Malabar. Anasta’s long-time friend and real estate agent, Jason Black from Black Lifestyle Property, who did the bidding was reluctant to give any details surrounding the family's attendance. Anasta moved into his mother's house after his separation from Jodi Gordon.

The walkup apartment has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and outdoor terraces and decking.

Bidding opened at $2 million with Anasta's buyers agent lodging a first bid at $2.2 million.

It was indicated as on the market for sale at $2.4 million.

Campion, who was there sitting inside on a white couch, paid $1.2 million for the two level property in 2001. She was heard to say "wow" after the hammer came down.

She retains a home in Paddington, a terrace house bought after she sold her Alex Popov-designed Castlecrag home.

In 1994 she became the first female to win the Palme d'Or, Cannes Film Festivals most prestigious prize.

Campion recently confirmed she would be co-directing and co-writing a second season of drama series Top of the Lake with the action to be filmed in Sydney and Hong Kong.

Jane rose to fame through a series of short films before her feature debut with Sweetie in 1989.
