Built in 1905 by Smith and Cabban, the Federation property is designed for resort style family living on a grand scale, with seven bedrooms, five bathrooms and parking for four cars. The main residence, set amidst park like gardens, boasts more than 1000sqm of internal space, over three levels.
“Ardagh is a rare manor that is almost overwhelming in size and elegance,” Mr. Simeon said, “it’s a home that needs to be seen several times, to get a true appreciation of just how vast the property is.”
Set on the high side of the street, the estate has had just five owners during its 115-year history, including the famous Toohey family, British Trade Commissioner John Adams, and former ABC radio personality John Champ.
Current owners Gary and Mary Smoker have held the property since 1994.
