Mrs. Robertson, the Founding Chairman and current patron of the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society, instantly fell in love with the home in 1982, when she first walked through the front door.
“I could live here,” she said. “I’ll never have to move as its all on one level.”
A much-loved family home, daughter Jane remembers “decades of happiness” at Clifton Gardens.
“Burrawong Avenue was a wonderful Sydney base for my sister and I and our families, as we both live rurally,” she said.
“I have wonderful memories of long lunches in the garden, morning coffee on the veranda in glorious winter sunshine, and Christmas holidays spent in the pool.”
“My father was also an accomplished artist who spent many hours painting in our home studio.
“Clifton Gardens was his favourite place in the world, as you can see in his work.”
