  • The building style is relatively rare within the Woollahra municipality and the Sydney region generally.[1]

Inverinate Description

65 Cranbrook Road is an intact Arts and Crafts style residence.
  • The building is two-storey with a steeply pitched, hipped roof clad in terracotta pan tiles and tall square chimneys with multiple terracotta chimney pots.
  • The house is generally symmetrical across the façade with a dormer sitting in the main roof, which in turn spills around it to form the roof covering for the ground floor verandah. Two open plan verandahs on the first floor accentuate the symmetry.

  • The building is finished in pebbledash stucco. Exposed rafters run along the eaves line, except where the roof comes down to the ground floor where it sits upon eaves of an oversized dentilated cornice design which is supported off six large square tapered columns, which in turn sit upon a short masonry wall.
  • The upstairs balconies have a gentle curve across the front edge of the balustrade in the manner of the English Arts and Crafts style.
  • The windows and highlights are generally clear glazed with no apparent glazing bars. Deep flat roofed awnings to the ground floor facade windows are supported by elaborate metal tiebacks. The form of the awning is relatively flat with a deep multi stepped edge in a ‘Voisyesque’ manner.
A large bay window sits below the central roof leading onto the verandah. Timber shingles have been used above the windows in the bay as well as either side of the first floor dormer.[2]

Inverinate History:

Named Inverinate – possibly after a small village on Loch Duich in the Scottish Highlands – it was built for Mark Reginald MacRae, who lived there until 1948 when he sold it to Sir Kenneth Noad, a medical practitioner, who owned the house for the next three decades.
  • In 1910, Horatio Scott Carslaw, Professor of Mathematics at Sydney University, purchased from the Cooper Estate an area of 2 rood 10 ½ perches bounded by Cranbrook Road and Cranbrook Lane.
  • The land was sold undeveloped to Mark Reginald Macrae, a company manager form Sydney in 1918 and the following year he is recorded in the Sands Sydney & Suburban Directory, as living on the site in a house called “Inverinate”.
  • The house was constructed to a design by Manson & Pickering Architects.

In 1931 Macrae sold portion of the grounds of his property, on the corner of Cranbrook Lane and Cranbrook Road to Rupert Harden (now known as 67 Cranbrook Road - Sale listing and photographs; erroneous Property Observer Trophy Home story here).
  • At the same time, a further subdivision was proposed consisting of the land in front of the house but this was never executed.
  • Macrae remained at “Inverinate” until the property was sold in 1948.
  • Sir Kenneth Noad, medical practitioner, purchased the house, and engaged the architects Loveridge & McCauley to carry out minor alterations. He remained occupier of the house until 1978 when the property was sold to its current owners William and Joyce Conolly.[3]

3. Merrybrae, 1920

51 South Road, Brighton VIC 3186

Merrybrae, a 1920s era Federation Arts and Crafts home in the beachside suburb of Brighton.
external image brighton1.jpg
A four bedder set on 1,040 square metres, with low maintenance gardens and paved outdoor entertaining areas, it wouldn’t be too labour intensive to care for. There’s plenty of room for the prized poodle and the beach is just down the road for the daily run.
external image brighton2.jpg
What really seals the deal is the two sizeable kitchens with an indoor kitchen and another outdoors – what Malaysians and Singaporeans refer to wet and dry kitchens.
  • The indoor one can be used for serving guests, while the outdoor one is where you can cook your (top notch) fish curries.

101 Victoria Road, Bellevue Hill NSW

The inspirational founder of the mamamia, Mia Freedman and her husband, Jason Lavigne may have bought the six bedroom, Fintry in Bellevue Hill.
  • Fintry, the starkly white exterior home with Blainey North interiors sits on a 1,368 square metre block.
  • No official sale price has yet emerged, but Title Tattle gleans buyers were being told around $12.5 million was required to secure the trophy home. It came up for sale in 2012 with $15 million hopes.
  • The couple have apparently even moved in recently, under licence, after signing what Title Tattle gleans was a put and call purchasing option.
It last traded at $10.2 million in late 2007 - pre-global financial crisis through estate agent Brad Pillinger - in a sale which was described as fully-priced.
  • There was apparently subsequently a $1 million renovation that saw the addition of a salt water infinity-edge pool that overlooks Lachlan Murdoch’s compound, along with extensive interior and exterior refurbishments while maintaining the original house footprint.
  • It was briefly available at $6750 a week last year by vendor, Somna Kumar who had bought the Victoria Road property (pictured below before renovation) from the McWilliam family.
  • Somna Kumar and her partner, Macquarie banker Joseph Jayaraj are now London-based.


The McWilliam family had bought it from the Heinze family in 1995 for $2.06 million through Raine & Horne Double Bay agent Bill Hall.
  • It had been longtime home of the late conductor Sir Bernard Heinze, complete with miniature 12-seat theatre fitted out by his son Adrian with Capitol Theatre furnishings.
  • It had been bought in 1957 for 22,000 pounds by Sir Bernard and his wife, Lady (Valerie) Heinze following his move from Melbourne to succeed Sir Eugene Goossens at the NSW Conservatorium.
    • Sir Bernard Heinze, the eminent musician and director of the NSW State Conservatorium of Music, having moved to Sydney with his wife, Valerie, Lady Heinze, from Melbourne, where he was a conductor of the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Society.
    • Sir Bernard Heinze was one of the great figures of Australian music, and his wife, Valerie, was the daughter of Sir David Hennessey, Lord Mayor of Melbourne, and Lady Hennessey.
  • An offer of $12 million was rejected last year by the vendor, London-based Macquarie banker Joseph Jayaraj, and his wife, Somna Kumar.
  • The Victoria Road property has been renovated with interiors by designer Blainey North since it last traded for a peak price of $10.2 million in 2007 when sold by Seven Network commercial director Bruce McWilliam and his wife, Nicky.
  • The Victoria Road property has been renovated with interiors by designer Blainey North.
    who died in 1982,
    • Heinze lived at the grand inter-war bungalow until he died in 1982, having added a lavish eight-seat theatre to the property furnished from the Capitol Theatre.
  • It was sold by the Heinze family estate in 1995 to the McWilliams for a little more than $2 million

Set among Sydney´s most prestigious hillside dress-circle residences, the 1930s Fintry comes with panoramic north-easterly harbour, district and ocean views.
  • It was marketed through Sotheby's International as having glamorous decor fusing the splendour of times gone by with the modern convenience.
  • It comes with grand entrance foyer, high ornate ceilings, parquetry floors, original fireplaces and wood-panelled walls.
  • Mia Freedman seemingly fell in love with the house at least six months ago given she posted pictures on pinterest well before word of the legalities started emerging.
  • The entrepreneurial independent digital media couple have lived elsewhere in Bellevue Hill since paying $3,175,000 in 2004. It was briefly listed in 2008 with $4.4 million hopes before being withdrawn from sale.
    • More than 650,000 people a month visit Mamamia, the Good Weekend's Jane Cadzow advised.
