Normandie Park, the 84 hectare mixed farming property in Exeter, has been sold, after a year on the market.

One Agency Maday Property agents Kate Maday and Henry Caprel had a guide of $5.6 million to $6 million.

The Old Argyle Road property last traded for $4 million in 2017 when offloaded by Dr Leo Shanahan and his wife Joan who wanted $4.9 million.

It was bought by businessman Ying Huang, wife of ad agency executive Robin Chen.

Normandie Park was built in 1962 and designed by Allen Jack+Cottier, having been commissioned by barrister and former Liberal parliamentarian Thomas Sidney McKay.

It was previously owned by the late NSW Liberal Legislative Council politician Thomas McKay, who served between 1966 and 1978, and who died in Exeter in 2004.

McKay was a wartime wing commander, barrister, diary farmer, national and NSW amateur golf champion and councillor of Wingecarribee Shire in the 1950s.

Allan Jack + Cottier designed the nine bedroom, six bathroom homestead, surrounded by established plantings, trees, dry stone walling and pathways.

The pavilion styled modernist home was constructed with double brick, with a series of interconnected wings connected by hallways. 

The stylish interiors feature three metre ceilings, open plan living, and floor to ceiling glass windows and doors. 

There are a number of slow combustion fireplaces, a large games room, media room, an internal courtyard, a bar room and central kitchen.

Away from the main residence is a fully self-contained three bedroom home. 

The property is made up of nine paddocks of prime pastoral land with basalt and loam soils, a running creek, dams, bore, and water troughs.
