Former Wahroonga Knox Grammar School Mansion listed

Updated: Aug 12, 2019



For sale with close to $9 million expectations, Malto Ende, which means remote land, at 32 Grosvenor St, is the longtime home of investment banker Ian Maxton and his charity fundraiser wife Susan.


Malto Ende dates back to 1901: in 1910 it became the boarding house for Eldinhope School for Girls run by the Hooke sisters. In the 1950s the property was part of the Knox Grammar School divided into flats and used for housing senior staff.


This grand estate has been a Uniting Church garden walk fundraiser site, the site of the one of the biggest and longest-running Cancer Council morning teas in the area as well as being a filming studio for NIDA students.


The Maxtons have owned this stately home for 25 years. It is now being auctioned in September with a $8.8m guide.


Lovingly restored and renovated in keeping with its Federation pedigree, it is nestled within lush manicured gardens, with grand living spaces, sandstone-framed North/South tennis court and 14m heated in-ground pool.
