"If anyone needed reminding where Australia’s most expensive suburb is they need only look at five sales this year.

  • Every sale above $30 million in 2014 has been in Point Piper, with most of the action centred on just one street.

  • Wolseley Road, which has been ranked as one of the world’s most expensive streets, has claimed four of the five top sales in 2014, totalling $135 million, with buyers drawn in by those iconic, gun-barrel harbour views."

 

For News.com Stephen Nicholls reported in April 21, 2022:​

Point Piper is renowned as Australia’s most expensive postcode.

The suburb is where former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull calls home in a palatial compound worth around $60m that earned him the nickname ‘Mr Harbourside Mansion’ during his time in office.

'Fairwater'

'Fairwater', 560 New South Head Rd, Point Piper NSW

also listed as 560 New South Head Rd, Double Bay NSW

Fairwater was constructed in 1882 with additions made in c.1901 and 1910, with a former stable (c.1900s) and garage (1930), situated on a large suburban allotment fronting Port Jackson with garden landscaping.

Designed by radical architect John Horbury Hunt:
Fairwater is a "powerful yet restrained composition in brick and t
imber, large, complex, yet manages to successfully modulate its scale so that it appears disarmingly domestic."

  • Fairwater's style is "Medieval (i.e. Tudor Revivaland Queen Anne" and is inspired by Picturesque intent with Tudor inspiration.

  • Fairwater's buildings and grounds are amongst the last of the great suburban estates remaining intact.

  • Fairwater's grounds provide an important scenic addition to the shoreline of Seven Shillings Beach* (on the border of Point Piper and Double Bay, Woollahra).
    *Nestled between Double Bay and Point Piper, Seven Shillings Beach is just a thin strip of sand

  • The Fairwater estate is historically important, having been connected with the Whites of Cranbrook, Lady Mary Fairfax, of the Fairfax family since 1901, and now the Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes and his wife Annie.

Point Piper was slow to develop compared with neighbouring Darling Point. To any Sydneysider at the time of Federation, there would be no question that Darling Point was the most desirable of the city’s suburbs, in large part because Point Piper hardly existed.

From 1818 - 56, 190 acres of what is now known as Point Piper sat within John Piper’s estate, anchored by 'Henrietta Villa’, one of the colony’s finest. Piper’s wealth escaped him and his villa and adjoining land were sold to the Cooper family in the mid 1850s.

The patriarch of the Cooper family decided to demolish the now several-decade old neo-classical Henrietta Villa in favour of an elaborate Victorian Italianate design that was considerably cutting edge for the time.

Right: 'Woollahra House’ got off to several false starts but was eventually completed in 1883.

July 24, 2009
WOLSELEY ROAD in Point Piper, one of the top 10 strips of real estate in the world. With a median property price of $7,092,000, the coveted Point Piper row has long had millionaires trade property for profits that would leave the average mortgagee reeling.

 

Alex May wrote for the SMH on April 6, 2008:

"Businessman Ben Tilley, who runs the finance broker Hunt Pacific Finance, has every reason to consider Wolseley Road Sydney’s best street."

 

  • “Mr Tilley, close boyhood friend of James Packer, has more reason to smile than most. Since 2001 he has bought three homes in the coveted row, selling two for a total profit of $20million – or about $8200 a day.

  • “His run of good fortune began in 2001 when he bought No.69, Vaynol, for $8million. Four years later he sold it for $12million.

  • “On the same day he paid $16.15million for Craig-y-mor, at No.73 Wolseley Road – buying it from the now deceased stockbroker Rene Rivkin.

  • Last month he sold it for $32.4 million, setting a new Sydney record. He reaped a tax-free $16.25million in less than four years of ownership.

  • “The same day he sold Craig-y-Mor, he bought (‘Elstree’) No. 138 Wolseley Road for $22million through Christie’s Great Estates agent Brad Pillinger.

  • “Whatever way you look at it, Tilley came out of that deal with change in his pocket,” prestige valuer Simon Feilich of Dyson Austen said. “It is unusual for these high-end properties to be bought and sold on the same day, but that’s what Tilley seems to do.”

'Elstree', 138-140 Wolseley Rd Point Piper

At left:  Elstree, 138 Wolseley Rd Point Piper , sold for $18.5m in 2007, $22m in 2008

Below Elstree at left: Channel Seven's lawyer Bruce McWilliam paid $16.5 million for the modern Point Piper house below Elstree, and in 2013 he sold this 'Bang & Olufsen' house in Point Piper for $33.5 million.

 

Elstree was constructed for Andrew Essex Scott in c.1908 and has social significance for its association with Scott family throughout most of the twentieth century.

The building has aesthetic significance for its contribution to the character of the immediate area and for the largely intact nature of the fabric and detailing.

138 Wolseley Road is actually two amalgamated allotments (138-140) and is occupied by a dwelling dating from 1912 – a Heritage item known as “Elstree”.

  • Elstree is a fine and largely intact example of the Federation Arts and Crafts style of a single storey rendered masonry cottage.

  • The house features a high pitched hipped roof with slate tiles, galvanised iron ridge cappings, and exposed timber eaves. Gutters are painted galvanised iron.

  • There is a gable extension to the west. Gable end has timber panel.

  • A high boundary wall and double garage hides most of the house from the street.

  • A heavy timber gate has the name ‘Elstree‘ painted onto it.

  • External Materials: Pebble dash rendered masonry walls. Roofs have slate tiles, galvanised iron ridge cappings, and exposed timber eaves.

Elstree was sold three times in four years!


Nov 14, 2007
1. ELSTREE, the hillside 1912 Point Piper residence, has been sold for about $18.5 million to the Channel Seven director Bruce McWilliam, who owns the neighbouring contemporary house on the harbour (which Elton John called the 'Bang+Olufsen' houses, and even thought about buying it).

  • The sale of the 910-square-metre non-waterfront property, which last changed hands in the 1960s, is the year’s fourth-highest. It also ranks as Sydney’s fourth-highest ever non-waterfront house sale.

  • The acquisition, which adds to Mr McWilliam’s 1414-square-metre ultra-modern glass house, continues the trend of harbourside compounds.

2. Mr McWilliam paid $18.5million for 138 Wolseley Road in November last year (2007), before selling it to Mr Tilley for a $3.5 million capital gain and 100 square metres less land (which Mr McWilliam is said to have kept to build a garage).

3. May 2011, ELSTREE sold again:
Settlement took place on the $18 million sale of a property in Wolseley Road, Point Piper. The circa 1912 residence was sold by Tiffany Tilley, the wife of the businessman Ben Tilley, to the equities fund manager Warwick Johnson.

Bruce McWilliam and Point Piper

Lucy Macken wrote for Domain in February 13, 2015:

"TV heavyweight and trophy home collector Bruce McWilliam is at it again in his Point Piper stamping ground, listing his home for about $18.5 million."

"Best known for his $33.5 million sale in 2013 of the waterfront mansion known as the Bang & Olufsen house to Chinese businessman Qiu Yafu, he also sold the 1920s mansion Elstree set behind it in 2008 for $22 million to Ben and Tiffany Tilley.

The Network Seven director and his wife, Nicky, also paid $10.65 million in 2013 for Ron Medich’s waterfront property which featured in the Michael McGurk murder mystery.

More recently, the couple are rumoured to have bought an Edwardian  waterfront mansion down the hill from their current residence, owned by liquor baron John Piven-Large. They are believed to have paid almost $30 million late last year, however, McWilliam won’t flatter such talk."

  • Above left: ‘Danmark’ 16-18 Wolseley Road, Point Piper, NSW, Street entrance

  • Below left: 'Danmark' from the harbour, top centre, in white
     

Built ca.1907 as a waterfront Edwardian mansion, Danmark was converted in the 1930’s to accommodate 14 spectacular apartments, retaining its private access to Seven Shillings Beach and the gardens above.

  • The site forms part of the original grant to John Piper in 1820. The property passed to William Charles Cooper in 1898, briefly to Catherine Kitt in 1902, and to John Paul in 1903. The house was constructed for John Paul in c.1907 and named Danmark after his homeland.

  • A well conceived blend of classic character and modern innovation, with 4m pressed metal ceilings, and art nouveau fireplaces, stainless steel kitchen, deco bathrooms, and living and dining rooms open to a side courtyard.

  • Rendered masonry house on a steeply sloping site away from the road towards the harbour. Street frontage is two storeys.

  • Steeply pitched gable hipped roof, with glazed terra cotta tiles and ridge cappings and colorbond drainage system. Timber fascias and eaves.

  • Three storey gable extension to the south has timber lined eaves supported by decorative timber brackets above rendered string course.

  • Gable end above main entrance has timber and rendered masonry infill construction.

More history of the original Danmark owner:

  • At left: The rare heritage-listed Chinese-style timber boatshed was built in the 1930s and was originally part of the mansion, ‘Danmark’.

  • Danmark was owned by the prolific horse owner and breeder W.J. “Knockout” Smith, but he preferred to spend his time in the boatshed, apparently because he couldn’t stand his wife.

  • Smith was also famous for being the founder of the glassmaking giant Australian Consolidated Industries (ACI).

  • W.J. 'Knockout' Smith, was the glass industry tycoon who was also a ruler of Australian breeding sixty years ago.

    • "One morning, a couple of weeks ago, two men were standing looking down from Point Piper at the harbour. One of them broke out suddenly: "Good God! There's a man swimming in the open water there, and a shark only a couple of hundred yards out. How can we warn him?"
      Said the other coolly, after a quick look: "Calm yourself, son. That bloke's Knockout Smith. If you want to Warn anybody, warn the shark."​

Kilmory Apartment sale.jpg

Kilmory ... from disrepair to designs for the discerning. 

Squatting on the highest knoll in Point Piper is an enormous house the size of 12 large three-bedroom homes. It has about 50 rooms, panoramic views over Sydney Harbour, a sweeping circular driveway and is set in gardens the size of 10 quarter-acre blocks. Kilmory is a mansion in anyone's language. 

Despite its location and size, or maybe because of it, Kilmory lay empty until recently, slowly falling into disrepair. Former owner Rodney Adler had the house on the market for two or three years before eventually it selling to a developer earlier this year. 

Now, after months of consultation between Woollahra Council, the developer, the State Heritage Office, architects and countless other interested parties, the property will be converted into 11 luxury homes - seven apartments within the actual house and four new residences in the grounds.

'Kilmory' Estate, 6 Wentworth Street, Point Piper

 

Kilmory is located on the northeastern bend of Wentworth Street on the highest part of Point Piper. Because of this elevated position the building and its landscaped grounds can be seen from areas in Vaucluse, Rose Bay and Darling Point.

Kilmory is the largest site on the Point Piper peninsula and the last of that suburb’s grand estates. The property has exceptional local heritage significance and is listed as a heritage item in Woollahra Local Environmental Plan 1995 (LEP).

“Kilmory” was built in 1912 for Sir Alexander MacCormick, who was a surgeon and a member of the Sydney University Medical School. “Kilmory” was commandeered by the military during WW2 from Sir Alexander MacCormick to establish Eastern Area Headquarters on 15 May 1942.

After the war, it became Riverview College and then became a Franciscan Retreat. 

“A grand though simple house, it uses the harled walls, slate roofs and robust stone chimneys characteristic of architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) such as the houses Hill House, Helensburgh, Scotland, and the house built for C.F.A. Voysey (1857-1941).

It was known as the Ave Maria Centre, and was the Provincial House of the Roman Catholic Order of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary.

Seven apartments:

Now it has been converted into just seven highly-individualised apartments within the creatively reinvented “Kilmory” security mansion (c.1913), made for entertaining with scenic Bay and Harbour views.

  • The house occupies a prominent and highly visible position on the site. From parts of Wentworth Street, it presents a striking and dominating form against an uninterrupted skyline. This elevated position also provides the house and the upper landscaped areas with expansive views of Sydney Harbour and the northern foreshore.

  • The house is an Arts and Crafts style building designed in 1913 by John William Manson of the architectural firm Manson and Pickering for Dr Alexander MacCormick (later Sir Alexander), an eminent member of Sydney’s medical profession. Construction of the house was undertaken by the leading building firm of Stuart Bros. Co. over the period 1913 to 1914.

  • The house and its landscape setting, including sandstone walling, driveway, entry posts and gates, elevated terraces, gardens and prominent trees are highly significant and contributory elements in the Wentworth Street streetscape.

Some Heritage History:

The earliest reference to the property is in the 1902-3 ratebooks as vacant land owned by Sir Alexander MacCormick, surgeon.  

Designed by architects Manson & Pickering, the former Kilmory was built c.1904.  MacCormick reportedly owned the house until World War II, however there is no documentary evidence of this fact.  He is listed in the Sands at 'Kilmory' from 1923, the first year in which the property is referenced.  

From a Lands Titles search, ownership appears to have transfered to Craignish Ltd in 1933, and then to joint tenants Colin J. McVillot, Noel Burke-Gaffney and Micheal McDonald Scott in 1946.  

During the War the house was reportedly occupied by the Department of Defence, however there is no documentay evidence of this fact.  

Subsequently the house was used for educational purposes, briefly by the Jesuit Order from 1951, and then by the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary from 1952 to the present day.

The Sunday Telegraph

THEY’RE stunning shots of a fledgling Sydney taken from an exclusive vantage point.

Spanning two world wars, the photographs show life as it once was on one of the most expensive streets in town: Wolseley Rd, Point Piper.

Taken between 1917 and the late 1940s by Eric Gibsone, the owner of the stately house Notrella, the pictures capture moments with his wife Alice around its grounds and scenes of a much quieter harbour.

Sandra Smith was given the album by her late mother-in-law, Henrietta Catherine “Nettie” Chamberlain, who worked as a live-in maid at the home for almost a decade in the 1930s.

Mrs Smith said the album of almost 130 photographs are “as old as can be”.

“By god, that harbour has changed and across South Head is very different,” Mrs Smith said.

“The photos are all very well taken;

I wouldn’t be surprised if Mr Gibsone was an amateur photographer.”

Mrs Chamberlain, who had grown up in the tiny ACT town of Colbargo, arrived for her first job as an 18-year-old and was embraced like the Gibsone’s own child, Mrs Smith said.

A fine and largely intact example of the Federation Queen Anne style. The property forms part of the original grant to John Piper in 1820.

The building named 'Notrella' at 142 Wolseley Road Point Piper has aesthetic significance as a fine and largely intact example of the Federation Queen Anne style.

The two storey red brick building on its prominent location also has aesthetic significance for the strong contribution it makes to the character of the immediate area.  

The building has social significance for its association with the parliamentarian, the Hon. Bruce Smith, M. P. and for its long association with the Gibsone family from the early 20th. century until 1977.

The mature hedges and trees are contributory to the aesthetic significance of the building.

Constructed: 1904.

The two storey red face brick house is in the Federation Queen Anne style.

House site is on a rocky outcrop overlooking the bay, bounded to the north by Wolseley Crescent.

  • Roof is a series of gables, with terra cotta tiles and ridge cappings, timber fascias, exposed timber rafters and painted timber lining to eaves. Gable ends have timber shingles, or brick and pebble dash rendered masonry infill construction. Single rendered masonry chimneys with red face brick tops and galvanised iron vents.

  • Generally timber double hung windows, with segmental arched heads and sills in a darker brick. Windows have timber jalousies. A single storey verandah to the front (south) has similar tiles, gable over doorway has timber fascia and shingles to end. There is a wide string course of darker brick at first floor level.

  • A single storey portico to the western side has balcony above, brick and rough cut stone string courses, and arched sides. Arches are of darker brick. A pair of multi-paned timber doors lead to balcony above. Doors have arched head and fan light above. Original gable to the north has similar brick and pebble dash rendered masonry infill construction.

  •  A double garage and new driveway were constructed in 1980 for M. Gallaher.

  • Alterations undertaken in 1983 included, a two storey extension to the northern and eastern sides consisting of new breakfast room, family room, garden store, ensuites, entertainment area and external patio.  

  • Other alterations have included the enclosing of a first floor balcony to the northern side overlooking Wolseley Crescent.  

    • Period: Unknown, built for Walter Allerton.

‘Notrella’, 142 Wolseley Road Point Piper

A meticulous two-year architectural renovation has restored this magnificent waterfront residence to its original Edwardian glory.

Including a 30m private tidal beach, the majestic home enjoys a rare position remarkably close to the water. 

It includes a separate apartment and enjoys panoramic harbour district views including the Harbour Bridge.

The restored mansion last traded as a duplex in 1991, when Piven-Large paid $2.2 million for one  and $1.3 million for the other.

2013: The Edwardian waterfront home of John Piven-Large has hit the market, offering five bedrooms, a tidal beach and a swimming pool with price expectations of more than $40 million. The home was first called Ni-No-Nan after its 1912 construction, a name that has thankfully been lost in time. Historically, the home is significant as one of only a small handful of the original constructions on the peninsula.

$30 million: 60 Wunulla Road Point Piper NSW

Point Piper has clocked up yet another waterfront trophy home sale, the sixth this year to sell for $30 million or more.
The Edwardian-era mansion of liquor baron John Piven-Large sold on Friday, bringing the suburb’s sales tally to some $200 million worth of prime real estate sales within five months.

  • The six-bedroom residence with a tidal beach was first up for sale early last year with hopes of $40 million.

After being listed with a few agents, the campaign was handed to Pillinger’s Brad Pillinger in August, with a more realistic guide of $30 million-plus.

  • Mr Pillinger refused to comment on the sale, but a source confirmed the sale for about $30 million.

  • An offer of $28 million is rumoured to have been made in late July but was rejected.

The mansion last traded as a duplex in 1991, when Mr Piven-Large paid $2.2 million for one property and $1.3 million for the other.

  • Redesigned into one residence since then, it was listed following Mr Piven-Large’s $15 million purchase of the the Pomeroy, Potts Point penthouse of billionaire property developer Bob Ell.

Mr Piven-Large is known to have made much of his fortune when he sold a 45.7 per cent stake in Cellarmasters to Foster’s Brewing Group in 1997 in a deal worth $160 million.

The Piven-Large house, which dates back to the early 1900s, was given a grand makeover by respected architect Espie Dods in the 1990s to restore it to its original Edwardian glory.

It now features custom-fitted timber cabinetry in the library and office, elegant furnishings with chintz covered chairs strategically placed in front of ornate fireplaces, floral themed bedrooms - all with ensuites and harbour views - and casual and formal entertaining areas.

The jewel in the crown is the 13m heated salt-water swimming pool, positioned right at water's edge with the Harbour Bridge as a backdrop.
