The sale of an apartment for over $25 million in Sydney’s blue-ribbon enclave of Darling Point has set a new suburb record.

Not only is it the highest sale for the Sydney suburb for more than 18 months, but also steams past the previous $16.8 million record for an apartment set in June by the off-the-plan sale of a development on Yarranabbe Road.

The exact price paid for the home remains undisclosed by 1st City Double Bay’s Julian Hasemer. The property was listed less than two weeks ago with a $25 million guide and has sold well before the November 4 deadline.

According to posts by the agency’s social media accounts, the result came in at more than $25 million.

The apartment in question is a two-storey spread that has formal and informal living areas and uninterrupted harbour views to the city skyline, five bedrooms an internal lift and a swimming pool.

The apartment sold was one of two in the block built by yachtie Hugo van Kretschmar and his wife Karen after they bought the site in 2004 for $7 million and acquired the talents of Allen Jack+Cottier Architects to have them designed.

The couple kept one apartment – prior to its recent sale, with the lower-level apartment sold six months before completion to Thelma Levin wife of Park Lane Fashions boss Mervyn Levin.
