An original Georgian revival residence designed by architectural firm Wilson, Neave and Berry at Wahroonga has been sold for only the second time since it was built in 1933.

Wilson, Neave and Berry were the leading designers of their day, co-founded by William Hardy Wilson.

Having lived on the same Fox Valley Road, it was built for the German-born wool-buyer Gustav Metzner.

The four-bedroom house was then rented to fellow Germans, Gustav and Josepha Weissflog in 1947, who bought it in the names of their three children, Eva, Klaus and Ruth in 1957 for 6100 pounds.

Despite its quaint facade, it is in need of work when the rear of the house is inspected.

Vendor Ruth Weissflog had been expecting around $1.4 million through Belle Property Killaras Malcolm McCulloch. No sale price has been indicated.
