Strong interest for landmark Sydney home
The Hordern family of the retail dynasty say the time was right to move on and so they have engaged award-winning agents, Gavin Rubinstein and Elliott Placks of the powerhouse Ray White Double Bay.
“We are so excited to help the Hordern family sell what is one of Sydney’s landmark properties. It is such a cliche to say it is a once in a lifetime offering but it may be another 80 years before this home is on the market,” Mr Rubinstein, who is the number one agent in Australia.
“Sometimes in life, opportunities just present themselves, and this house with its rich history and architecture is one such opportunity.”
With a price guide of $23M to $25M, Mr Rubinstein said buyer interest was coming from all over Australia.
“We have had a strong response locally given land holdings like this with harbour views are rarely available in this blue chip pocket,” Mr Rubinstein said.
“The size and scale is unmatched and someone has an opportunity to create a property like none other around.”
Home owners Anthony Hordern and his brother Samuel Hordern called the home an “iconic Wilkinson design”.
“It was one of his favourites. It exudes character and has a lot of potential. Set on more than 2700 sq m of land, the buyer will have many options,” Anthony Hordern said.
Samuel Hordern said there was no doubt the home was “a passion property.”
“It’s the kind of property that someone will fall in love with and it is truly a family home with a big garden,” said Samuel Hordern.
