The apartment is in the 1999-built Marina Point development at Birkenhead Point.

He paid $935,000, a savvy buy given it had sold for $910,000 five years earlier.

The sixth-level apartment, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms at 607/1 Roseby Street, Drummoyne, is wrapped in a large balcony with views across the harbour.

Magnussen has refreshed the space with the carpet ripped out and replaced with timber floors in the living space. There’s a granite kit­chen and a marble bathroom with a spa bath. The master bedroom has an ensuite.

Magnussen, who retired in 2019 after gold at the Brisbane Commonwealth Games in 2018, was the first Australian to win the men’s 100m freestyle world title, in 2011 at 47.10.

These days he has Hab­itual Equipment, which ­offers professional grade gym gear. The business theme is making habits habitual with sporting and recreation endeavours.

The vendors Sarah Keighery and Dr Billy Gruner worked with Sydney to restore the home securing a National Trust heritage award in 2015.
