No sale for Block judge pad

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

THE Block judge and Stel­lar colum­nist Neale Whi­taker’s apart­ment passed in on a ven­dor bid of $1.7 mil­lion at auc­tion yes­ter­day but he said he has no re­grets about buy­ing it 18 months ago.

He paid $1.705 mil­lion for the three-bed­room ware­house style unit at 103/41 Birm­ing­ham St, Alexan­dria, when the Syd­ney prop­erty mar­ket was fly­ing in Au­gust 2016.

Mr Whi­taker and his part­ner, David No­vak-Piper, now have their eye on a home near Berry on the south coast so they put the apart­ment up for auc­tion through BresicWhit­ney with a guide of $1.6 mil­lion.

“Ob­vi­ously the mar­ket’s changed in 18 months, but this is a beau­ti­ful apart­ment and we’ve loved liv­ing in it,” Mr Whi­taker said.

Their plan is to snap up a pet-friendly one-bed­der in the Alexan­dria or Rose­bery area and di­vide their time be­tween there and the Berry home.

It’s not every day that buy­ers have the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase a Block judge’s home, so agents Melinda An­tella and Ivan Bresic are con­fi­dent of a sale.
