Liberal councillor Christine Forster, sister of former PM Tony Abbott, gets windfall at auction ahead of Mardi Gras

By Taylor and Partners Reception

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.
