Kerry Packer’s mistress puts penthouse he left her on the market for $25million

The sale of the luxury Sydney harbourside penthouse owned by Kerry Packer‘s former mistress is shrouded in mystery – with real estate agents refusing to even share pictures of the interior with potential buyers.

Julie Trethowan, who worked for Mr Packer for 22 years running Sydney’s Hyde Park Club, is seeking $25million for the four-bedroom apartment at the elite Toft Monks complex in Elizabeth Bay after putting it on the market last week.

The penthouse, which is a combination of two apartments, was bought by Mr Packer for $4million in 1999, and offers views of Garden Island, Darling Point and Manly from windows on three sides of the 12th and 13th levels of the complex.

Other than the listing on the website of Pillinger estate agents, the sale is surrounded by secrecy, with no internal shots of the residence released.

Daily Mail Australia understands there is only interest in the property from local buyers at this stage.
