    ...
    Spread over one level and set in the centre of a large parcel of land the central, light-filled living hall is the only living space that doesn’t overlook the surrounding landscaped garden through its myriad windows and verandahs.
    Off the entry is a more intimate lounge room, dubbed the “Lady Mayoress” room in the 1930s, in honour of Eleanor Ida Crick, wife of then owner and Sydney Lord Mayor Stanley Crick, who was managing director of the Hoyts Theatre cinema chain.
    Alderman Crick, the Lord Mayor of Sydney was a founder of Fox Studios.
    Berith Park was used extensively as a location in a number of films.

    ...
    As grand entrances go, the drive through the stately gates and up the gravel drive to Berith Park and its landmark turret is hard to beat.
    But not impossible. Up the home’s main marble stairway and inside a mosaic-tiled foyer is a breath-taking central living space that acts as an impressive centrepiece to this exquisite home.

    The swimming pool looks new but dates back to before 1918, making it one of the oldest domestic pools in Sydney, and the championship-sized tennis court has synthetic grass and a half practice wall.
    Despite the estate being subdivided and sold off for housing in 1937 and 1960, losing the lake in the process, the established trees and landscaping have created a beautifully private garden that retains hidden treasures, such as a golf driving range.

    Elaine, Berith Park, Fernhill Estate: saving Australian mansions
    BEN WILMOT The Australian12:00AM May 6, 2017
    Sydney-based corporate lawyer Karthika Gunalingam bought historic upper-north shore trophy estate Berith Park from former Coca-Cola Amatil managing director Warwick White and his wife Karen for more than $11m last year.
    Berith Park, a master-built heritage home designed by Francis Ernest Stowe, is considered an architectural masterpiece, with grand interior living spaces ­flowing into manicured gardens.
    The prized estate, sold through Ray White agents Elliott Placks and David Walker, needs little work.
    “Every owner has treated it with such respect and I hope to do the same,” Gunalingam says of the Wahroonga home, which sports a pool, tennis court and golf driving range.

    It was designed by architect Francis Ernest Stowe from 1897 to 1909 for Queensland merchant Alfred Smith, and in 1911 purchased by prominent businessman Sir Arthur Rickard and his wife Nellie, who added the tennis court, a ballroom, ornamental lake and cricket oval.

    A book-lined study sits behind it, and shares the same garden outlook and verandah access as the adjoining formal dining room.
    The open-plan kitchen and family room at the rear was renovated about seven years ago and now features a vast marble-topped island benchtop at the centre, and the fireplace alcove now has an original Aga stove.
    Behind it is a powder room and an extensive utility space with a separate entry and impressive family-sized laundry.

    The second bedroom, sharing verandah access with the parents’ retreat, acts as an informal living room, there is a study with original curved feature wall and the sixth bedroom is a loft.
    A breezeway at the rear leads to the separate guest quarters built in the 1950s by the Catholic Church as a dining room for the Dominican sisters when it was used as a convent.
    In keeping with the home’s contemporary use, however, the separate quarters are now a billiard room and a gym downstairs, with a self-contained two-bedroom apartment above it.

    The swimming pool looks new but dates back to before 1918, making it one of the oldest domestic pools in Sydney, and the championship-sized tennis court has synthetic grass and a half practice wall.
    Despite the estate being subdivided and sold off for housing in 1937 and 1960, losing the lake in the process, the established trees and landscaping have created a beautifully private garden that retains hidden treasures, such as a golf driving range.

    For good reason the home has starred in movies and television shows, including a 1970s program called Ride On Stranger, as well as a more recent appearance on Home and Away and Love Child.
    The owner has taken care to preserve what was already a beautifully designed and historic Australian family home, restoring the high, detailed ceilings, original wall mouldings, plaster details and installing underfloor heating after that first, unforgettable winter in residence.
    The result is not only a property that celebrates its almost 120-year history, but is far and away the jewel of the upper north shore’s trophy home offerings.
