A landmark castle just listed on Sydney’s lower north shore is expected to smash price records when it hits the market today.

Century old mansion Innisfallen, owned by former Olympic water polo player Peter Montgomery, is a vast, heritage listed estate fit for a King – or Queen – with very deep pockets.

The landmark property is said to be one of Australia’s finest homes.

There is no price guide on the property, which sits on 8314 square metres of prime Castle Cove terrain, but with an estimated land value of $4000 per square metre, we’ve worked out the numbers.

You’ll need around $33 million in loose change.

Built in 1902, the stunning mansion is set on 8314 sqm.

Tim Foote, principal of Belle Property Mosman and Michael Pallier, managing director of Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty, say the Kings ransom price tag will eclipse all other north shore property sales in 2020.

“The home has had just two owners in its 117-year history,” Mr. Foote said, “it’s a landmark property and one of the most impressive homes in Australia.”

The heritage listed castle was built at the turn of last century by politician Henry Willis and is positioned between stunning bushland and Sydney Harbour.

Constructed from sandstone quarried on site, the building is a magnificent example of a bygone era, with four-metre-high ceilings, original stained glass windows, and a double staircase leading to a turret with 360 degree views over Sydney.

Innisfallen also boasts a tennis court and splendid, manicured gardens fit for Royalty.

Originally set on 20 hectares, and accessible only by motor launch from The Spit, the castle is named after a ruined Abbey in Ireland’s Killarney, which means “Isle of the Field”. When it was built in 1902, all furniture and fittings were brought in by boat and carried uphill by workers.

Today, it features modern additions, including a wine cellar and gym.
