Claudia Karvan’s late father’s charming Art Deco Bondi Beach unit sells for just under a $1million
Famed Australian actress Claudia Karvan, 51, has sold off a gorgeous property in Sydney’s eastern suburbs for $989,000.
The beautifully preserved one-bedroom, one-bathroom pad in Bondi Beach was part of the estate of her late father.
Located in a leafy street not far from the beachfront, the Art Deco apartment went to auction with a listing price guide of $850,000.
Described as ‘oversized’ by the auctioneers, the classy flat features a spacious open plan layout and a sunroom.
Boasting high ceilings and many original design features, the classic apartment offers a courtyard, polished wooden floors and a cosy kitchen and dining room.

Meanwhile, there is also a laundry and workshop, though this area has ‘not been approved as common property’ prior to sale.
Karvan’s biological father Peter Robins, who died in 2022, separated from her mother Gabrielle Goddard, soon after the actress was born.
The Bump star grew up with stepfather Arthur Karvan, who owned a restaurant in Sydney’s Kings Cross called Arthur’s.
The beloved Aussie star first rose to fan as a child actress in the feature films Molly (1983) and High Tide (1987) in which she co-starred with Judy Davis.
Karvan achieved widespread acclaim in two long-running hit series made back-to back: The Secret Life of Us for Channel 10 which ran 2001 to 2005 and Fox’s Love My Way which appeared on the pay channel from 2004 and 2007.
In January, Karvan spoke to Stellar Magazine about turning 50.
‘I can indulge my creative passions a lot more. I’ve never been one for putting much on numbers, to be honest,’ she explained.

‘[It’s] significant. It’s exciting, it’s a relief to be here and it’s a shift – in a really positive way,’ she said.
It comes after the Bump star revealed to Daily Mail Australia last year why she would ‘never’ stop acting.
‘I’m not planning to retire. I see myself acting when I’m 90-years-old actually, if I’m in good health and still alive,’ she said.
‘It’s a privilege of a job to have to do, I have to say.’
