Point Piper apartment with a very special view goes up for auction
This Point Piper apartment has north-easterly views over Sydney’s first international airport — Rose Bay’s Water Airport, which opened in 1938.
It was also briefly home to the man who was Woollahra’s youngest mayor at the age of 22, Marcus Ehrlich.
The three-bedroom apartment on the third floor at 15/2A Wentworth St has now hit the market with a $1.8m price guide through BadgerFox agents Peter Leipnik and Alexander George, who recently sold the Vaucluse home of businessman Alexander Ma for more than $30m.

The apartment, which has double parking and an amazing harbour outlook, is owned by Mr Ehrlich’s father, Joshua Ehrlich, and his wife, Bev Sutton.
Marcus Ehrlich was Woollahra’s mayor between October 2005 and July 2006, serving as deputy mayor both before and after that. He is now the managing director of drones company Ninox Robotics.
The building is company title but just like many other buildings, it will be changed to strata shortly which will likely give it a huge uplift in value.

Mr Leipnik said: “We have had one open home there with some of the locals in larger homes looking to buy it for their kids.”
The apartment, a decent size with 120 sqm of internal space, is in a boutique block of just 20 that was built in 1979.
The apartment offers a spacious open plan layout with generous living and dining areas.
The master bedroom has direct balcony access.
Other attractions are the double tandem parking, with level access to the apartment.
It’s also close to Double Bay and Rose Bay village shops and within walking distance of Seven Shillings Beach.
Mr Ehrlich and Ms Sutton bought it for $1.35m in 2007.
The auction date is May 21.
