  • The building has historical significance for its ability to evidence Federation development.
  • It is an important building in the professional work of the noted architect Oliver Harley.
  • The scale and quality of the building and site reflect the aspirations of the early occupants of the Toxteth Estate. Significant for its association with the development as a transport node.
  • The building has historical associative significance for its association with the original owner, FE McMahon and the subsequent owner in 1905 Mr Benjamin Esq and his architect Oliver Harley.
  • The building is significant for its contribution to the streetscape and to the Toxteth Estate. The site and building provides evidence of the early subdivision of the Toxteth Estate. One of the finest mansions on Glebe Point.
  • The building has aesthetic significance as an outstanding example of transition from Victorian to Federation Style.
  • It has a high quality of design intention and is particularly noted for its use of the round tower element.

The Toxteth Estate

George Allen (of Toxteth Park) during his lifetime had acquired 96 acres of the Glebe lands.
  • Allen and his son died within four years of each other and it was at this time that the estate began to be broken up.
  • The subdivision and sale of the Toxteth estate began in 1884 and by 1914 the process of building up this estate, lying between Wigram Lane and Victoria Road on the one side, and between Glebe Point Road and Harold Park on the other, was virtually completed.
During this intensive building phase, Joseph Walker and Thomas Sinclair constructed a large number of the Italianate villas and cottages in Glebe Point, Toxteth, Arcadia and Avenue Roads.
Ausin Group managing director Joseph Zaja, the salesman who has sold more Australian property to the Chinese than perhaps anyone else, and his wife Sarina have emerged as the buyers of the historic Glebe home Oswestry.
  • Zaja, who helps wealthy Chinese buy property in Australia, paid $6.25 million earlier this year for the landmark 1880s home.


3. MOSMAN Federation Home, 1897

1 Canrobert Street, Mosman, NSW 2088

  • Sold on 30 Aug 2016 for $4,150,000
    1 Canrobert Street, Mosman, NSW 2088
    1 Canrobert Street, Mosman, NSW 2088
  • The Mosman home was sold by former Olympic sprinter turned television presenter Matt Shirvington and his wife Jessica.
    The champion sprinter-turned-Fox Sports presenter first listed the Canrobert Street property in 2011 and kicked off another campaign earlier this year before McGrath’s Michael Coombs and Claudia Portale took over the campaign.[5]
  • NOT Heritage listed

Built in 1897, the striking four-bedroom Federation Canrobert St residence was beautifully restored in 2010 and includes a host of classic features throughout, such as original pressed metal ceilings, leadlight windows and formal living areas adorned by fireplaces.

6. Hartford, 1899

244 Glebe Point Road, Glebe NSW


Hartford (on the subdivided Toxteth Estate) was built for dentist E Randolph Magnus (his preferred name), the driving force behind the establishment of Sydney’s Dental Hospital.
  • Hartford’sfeatures included multiple public rooms, two bathrooms, five bedrooms plus a nursery and servants’ quarters (Protestant ‘help’ included a housemaid, general servant, parlour maid, cook and laundress).
  • During the Magnus family’s occupancy gardens and lawns were established, a conservatory and bush house built, and a croquet court laid out.

In 1907 Hartford, together with its specially made and bought furniture, was offered for auction.
  • The ‘artistic modern residence’ at 244 Glebe Rd was finally purchased by the Levy family who had moved in by 1910: Henry ‘Harry’ Phillip ‘of independent means’, his brother Joseph Angel, a wholesale jeweller, Joseph’s wife Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’, and Basil Angel, in adult life a partner in his father’s jewellery business.[6]

'Hartford' is a stately Federation mansion in a fabulous harbourside suburb. It offers grand scale family living and entertaining in a quiet village setting.
  • Built in the 1890s for Scottish medico E. Randolph Magnus, the Kennards bought it from recruitment executive Randall Maple and his wife Erica Maple-Pols.
  • They secured approved plans for a contemporary conservatory at the rear by architect Otto Cserhalmi.
  • The Kennard's listed through McGrath agent Michael Glynn who expected it to fetch about $4.5 million. Title Tattle gleans $4.2 million was secured.
The Queen Anne mansion Hartford was sold by the yoga devotees Jim Kennard and his wife Ananda Kennard in 2015 only 19 months after they bought it for $3.85 million, with plans to move to the United States.[7]
  • ‘Hartford’ was owned by the Presbyterian Church until a sale to private hands occurred in December 1998 for $1.52m.
  • According to publicly available records, the home last traded hands in April 2006 for $3.24m.

Hartford is an outstanding example of a Federation Queen Anne style grand house, with Art Nouveu detailing, in a garden setting.

  • It is stylistically related to 242 Glebe Point Road and together they make a strong contribution to the streetscape.
  • The building's size and quality reflect the development of Glebe Point Road as a prestige address and the aspirations of the Allen family and the early residents of the Toxteth Estate.
  • Hartford reflects the social importance in late nineteenth century Sydney of English cultural references and Scottish baronial architecture.
  • The building has historical associative significance for its association with the dentist, Dr E Randolph Magnus.

A freestanding Federation Queen Anne style grand house set on a wide corner site that has retained its context.
  • It reads as two storeys but also has a lower ground floor level. It is set on a wide corner site at the corner of Glebe Point Road and Park Avenue that has retained its context.
  • The building is set back from the street with front fence of stone-capped face brick on a stone plinth with cast iron quatrefoil motif panel.
  • The front garden is large and informally landscaped and features a central concrete path, mature trees and provides an appropriate setting for the house.
  • Soaring pressed metal ceilings, stunning original fireplaces.

Description


The façade presents a complex asymmetrical elevation and is constructed of tuck pointed face brick timber shingles and rusticated stone panels.
  • The roof is complex and gabled with a steep pitch, and has broad timber-boarded exposed eaves. It is clad in terracotta tile and features tall corbelled brick and rough cast chimneys with terracotta chimney pots and conical turrets, gabled ends, shingled and timber fretwork.
  • The verandah runs across the corner and above the entry and has a straight profile. It is clad in terracotta tile and features turned timber columns upstairs and tapered painted stone columns below. Other features include a delicate turned timber valance and balustrade, shingled skirt, tessellated tiles and slated edging.
  • The façade features highly decorative carved stone panels and carved stone corbels and sills. The front door is centrally located and is panelled and glazed with fanlight.
  • Fenestration is varied and comprises vertically proportioned arched casement timber windows with highlights, some leadlight and an oval-shaped window to the verandah. Fenestration to other facades is double hung timber sashes.
Internally significant features of the main house include the original room layout, timber stairs, timber joinery, brass hardware, decorative ceilings, fire places and leadlight glazing.
  • Keen-eyed readers should be able to discern the recent renovation away from flamboyant details to serene
    (from Gothic Victorian 'boom' to lighter Edwardian interiors)
