Retiring Liberal city councillor Christine Forster, the sister of former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, and wife Virginia Flitcroft have netted a $2.705 million windfall on the sale of their home ahead of Mardi Gras.
The price paid at auction for the Surry Hills terrace built in 1885 was $1.42 million higher than what the couple paid in mid-2010, records showed.
It meant they pocketed about $140,000 for each year they owned the home without lifting a finger – no major renovation was done.
