For someone who no longer lives permanently in Sydney, Nicole Kidman likes to take a deep-pocketed interest in our local real estate.
Despite being based in the United States’ country music capital Nashville, Kidman and her husband Keith Urban now claim half a dozen apartments in harbourside Milsons Point.
The latest settled this week to take her tally in the one building to more than $27.5 million.
A three-bedroom spread on level 15 of the landmark Latitude building is Kidman’s latest purchase for $7.725 million, which like her other apartments are held in the name of corporate interests fronted by her childhood friend Annette Rechner.
The purchase – not far from her mother Janelle’s home on the lower north shore – is the most expensive in the building after one of the penthouses that had previously sold for $8 million was on-sold for a loss two years ago by billionaire pub magnate Chris Morris and his wife Sharron Sills at $7.65 million.
The Hollywood A-lister’s latest digs was sold privately by co-founder of North Shore Coaching College Andy Mak.
