Fitness guru sells luxury unit

The celebrity fitness trainer Michelle Bridges has sold her Potts Point apartment.

The luxury Macleay Street abode with city and Harbour views sold off-market late last year - but has yet to settle.

It is tipped to have fetched $6 million-plus, a huge windfall for Bridges, who held the property in her own name only.

There's no known recent acquisition, with the only clue on her housing intentions coming from an Instagram post by Bridges last year when she was at her Southern Highlands retreat.

"The thought of spending more summer afternoons here …" she wrote as she sat on an outdoor lounge overlooking the rolling hills at Kangaloon.

It is tipped to sell for more than $6 million.

Bridges' seemingly happy home life took a turn recently when it was revealed she had split from her partner of nearly seven years, Steve "Commando'' Willis.

It was an Australia Day drink-driving blunder by Bridges that exposed the tumult in her life.

She was charged with drink-driving with the former couple's four-year-old son in the back seat. She went on to say she had been going through a tough time since she and Willis had parted ways.

The Potts Point apartment has survived a split before, as Bridges kept the Pomeroy apartment after an earlier break-up with business manager and then-husband Bill Moore.

It was bought in 2013 just as the five-year Sydney property boom began, costing them $2.9 million.

Bridges and Moore snapped it up at below its 2010 sale price of $3.2 million, when it was sold by prominent Sydney interior designers Marco Meneguzzi and Michael Love.

The apartment was transferred into Bridges' name in 2016 after her relationship with Moore ended. 

Bridges spent $2.7 million in 2017 on a Southern Highlands weekender, Summerside, a 4.1ha estate featuring a five-bedroom homestead amid Michael Bligh gardens.
