City sanc­tu­ary sells after short cam­paign

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REALESTATE -

AN 1880s Dar­linghurst manor listed with $10 mil­lion hopes has been sold.

Re­worked in 2010 by Alex Smith of CSA Ar­chi­tects, the home on Bar­com Ave was snapped up three weeks into its mar­ket­ing.

The grand home of the McGrath fam­ily is set on an el­e­vated 592sqm block.

It has five bed­rooms plus a study, with in­te­ri­ors by Arent & Pyke, the de­sign firm of Juli­ette Arent and Sarah-Jane Pyke.

There’s an en­ter­tainer’s bil­liard and rum­pus room with 1200-bot­tle wine cel­lar.

Ge­orge Cleary at Brad­field Cleary de­scribed it as “the ul­ti­mate ur­ban sanc­tu­ary”.

The re­stored grand ter­race was con­verted to a board­ing house in 1958.

In 1983 it was adapted again to in­cor­po­rate six self­con­tained flats.

Nearby sales have in­cluded Villa Moderna on Sur­rey St, which fetched $5.81 mil­lion last Au­gust.

The stately home in Bar­com Ave, Dar­linghurst.
