Moran Health Care Group co-founder Greta Moran has sold one of the upper north shore’s grandest estates in a secret deal.

The landmark Redleaf Estate occupies four titles and sold for $8 million to Leesa and Paul Fitzgerald.

CoreLogic reveals the purchase was broken down into $5.8 million for the house and $2.2 million for the three other titles forming the property.

It marks the first time Redleaf has changed hands since the Moran family bought the Wahroonga home in the late 1960s.

On 4996sqm, the landmark estate is the product of several acquisitions made by Greta and her late husband Doug.

The 1899 home was built by English architect Howard Joseland in the Arts and Crafts Federation style. It was transformed into its current form in 1996 after the family enlisted Clive Lucas to undertake an award-winning restoration.

The residence has five bedrooms and retains period features such as decorative ceilings, wooden stairs and stained windows. It also features grand spaces including a dining room and billiards room, as well as a character kitchen, butler’s pantry and wide verandas
