The back-pain specialist Sarah Key, the wife of former Sydney solicitor Russell Keddie, has sold her Double Bay home for $3.81 million.

The 1904 Wistonville is one of the earlier Double Bay mansions at the end of the quietly exclusive harbourside cul-de-sac, Wiston Gardens.

It had a floor added by the architect Professor Leslie Wilkinson in the 1960s.

The house, with north facing courtyards, has a grand drawing room with open fireplace and Kauri floors.

It last traded in 1985 at $430,000.

The picturesque Wistonville, set in gardens by Harris Hobbs Landscape Architects, was briefly listed for sale in 2010.

It was relisted through Louise Snowden at Raine & Horne, with more than $3.5 million tipped for the Elizabeth Bay bound couple.
