    In 1901, Haberfield developer Richard Stanton, advertised some available house designs as being of 'domestic Gothic' style, which historian Vincent Crow describes as having a 'characteristic cone', usually on a verandah roof. [1] These are also called 'turrets' and are usually round or pyramid-shaped towers. The tall narrow towers are amusingly known as 'candle-snuffers'.[2]

    Update: Bellevue Hill’s Sundorne estate set for wrecking ball to make way for designer homes
    Lucy Macken Domain Prestige Reporter May 28, 2018
    The grand English manor-style property Sundorne in Bellevue Hill that was sold by Cranbrook School late last year for $18 million is set to meet the wrecking ball amid plans to replace it with three luxury residences.
    Woollahra Council has approved the three-way subdivision of the original 2550-square-metre estate, and property developer Eduard Litver wasted no time lodging plans last week for three designer homes by Bruce Stafford Architects.

    Sir Peter, a millionaire and one-time owner of Ansett and TNT, died in 1999. The Vaucluse house he lived in with his second wife Lady Kitty sold in 2001 for $12 million.
    Background from Lucy Macken at Domain.com.au
    The land was originally part of the Cranbrook estate before it was subdivided in 1917 to create the private school across the road. Sundorne was built in the 1920s at a cost of 3250 pounds sterling by solicitor Edward Percy Simpson as a wedding present for his son Edward Telford Simpson.

    The landmark property with a tennis court and swimming pool remained in the Simpson family until 1958 when the late transport magnate Peter Abeles and his first wife Claire Dan bought it for £60,000 in 1958.
    After it was renovated in the 1960s it became best known for its lively and high-profile guests, including former prime minister Bob Hawke and former NSW premier Robert Askin.
    Dan took Sundorne as part-settlement in the couple’s divorce settlement in 1970, and it still retained its retro finishes – a lacquered ceiling by Marion Hall Best and formica kitchen – when sold by her estate five years ago.

    Cranbrook was only the third owner of the property when it bought it at auction in 2013 for $15,501,000 from the estate of the late arts philanthropist Claire Dan.
    Cranbrook School said it was originally purchased to provide relocation options during its $75 million redevelopment of a multipurpose building, aquatic centre and underground car park on the senior campus.
    However, it was listed last year for $18 million with LJ Hooker Double Bay’s Bill Malouf and Ray White Double Bay’s Elliott Placks after it was deemed superfluous to the school’s requirements.

    The DA plans before council total more than $5.1 million in construction costs for the three residences.
    The most expensive build of $1.9 million is for a three-bedroom house with a swimming pool, internal lift, study and basement garaging on the existing tennis court.
    A larger six-bedroom residence is set to be built at a cost of $1.76 million on top of the existing Sundorne mansion with formal and informal living rooms, study, swimming pool, basement garaging and an internal lift. The third residence is slated to be built on the existing garage and carport area at a cost of $1.44 million.
