Five Potts Point car spaces are set to listed.
Five Potts Point car spaces are to be listed by the estate of the late solicitor, hotelier and car collector Keith Wherry.
They were purchased in 2020 for $740,000 without the need for a registered mortgage, averaging $148,000 each, from investor Sarah Rothwell.
Wherry owned the neighbouring 14-room boutique hotel Simpsons of Potts Point at the time.
Rothwell had bought the Challis Ave spaces as an investment just two months prior for $540,000, averaging $108,000 each.
The spaces have been listed following Wherry’s death while swimming at Mollymook Beach in February last year.
Five Potts Point car spaces are for sale at 10 Challis Ave.

Wherry had a passion for Bentley and Rolls Royce cars, owning more than 50 since the late 1960s.
It was noted at his memorial service that Keith “never had enough spots for his cars” and that he’d even been taken to court by South Sydney Council over a small extension to a neighbouring property at an earlier garage so one of his cars would fit.
Wherry subsequently sold Simpsons for $12.5 million to Amber Symond, the wife of Aussie Home Loans founder John Symond, so they could be interested in the car spaces, along with other residents and investors.
