Inside Lara Bingle's apartment
The wait to see model Lara Bingle's one-bedroom Sydney apartment is finally over. After a few false starts the carefully managed campaign is underway with a June 14 auction for the central and scenic Darling Point spread.
The girlfriend of Hollywood actor Sam Worthington has denied reports she is selling up in order to move permanently to New York, insisting she is planning to spend more time in both cities.
Recent rumours that Bingle has privately inspected an apartment in the luxury suburb of Piper Point, which is just around the bays from the Opera House - budget about $NZ3.2 million - would seem to confirm she has no plans to leave Sydney just yet.
Bingle's most recent media appearance was arriving at Waverley Court a week ago where she was handed a six-month suspended jail sentence for twice driving without a licence and was fined $2000 and banned from driving for two years.
The star of her own reality TV show, Being Lara Bingle, bought the stylish one-bedder from interior designer Blainey North for $NZ951,000 in 2010, soon after her break-up with Test cricket captain Michael Clarke.
The company-title spread has retained many of North's finishes, such as the Calacatta marble in the bathroom and kitchen, stone-clad balcony and the American oak parquetry
After a few updated touches to the apartment, McGrath Estate Agents Richard Bonouvroe has given it a price guide of more than $890,000.
