The five bedroom residence is located on the 12th and 13th floors and offers views of Garden Island, Darling Point and Manly.

Mr Packer considered it his “private retreat” and reportedly employed a chef, chauffeur, nurse and housekeeper.

He began the renovation of the $2 million penthouse just months before his death in 2005.

Renovators built an internal staircase connecting the two apartments. Mr Packer also owned two apartments on the lower floors and dedicated them to his staff.

Former Secretary of State Jack Beale, who owned the property before Packer, said it was a place for Packer to escape.

‘[He] loved the place because he could get away from other things,” he said.

Mrs. Trethowan was a mistress and long-time employee of Mr. Packer.

Trethowan has built up a large real estate portfolio including homes in Whale Beach, Edgecliff and a commercial property in Bondi Junction, Sydney Morning Herald reported.

She had sold one of the bottom apartments in the Toft Monk for $3.25 million — having bought it for $1.5 million in 1999.
