The chairman of the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse cancer centre, company director Doug Snedden and his wife Belinda Clark have sold in Warrawee, seemingly securing their desire of more than $5 million.

The 1930s home designed in the stockbroker tudor style by architect John Brogan had been bought by the couple in 1999 for $2,325,000 from the ASX chairman Roderick Holliday-Smith and his wife Margaret.

Scott Chadwick, of Chadwicks Real Estate, sold the 1800 sqm Pibrac Avenue property that comes with tennis court and pool.

Professor Chris O'Brien was a surgeon who achieved national recognition as a compassionate surgeon in the reality television series RPA.

His vision and leadership built the foundation for the O'Brien Lifehouse institute specialising in the treatment of cancer.

O'Brien, diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2006, fought the illness until he passed away in 2009.

His wife Gail continues to play a key role in supporting her husband's vision for Australia to have its own world-class comprehensive cancer care facility.

Gail recently sold the family home in Hunters Hill through Narelle Scott at Bresic Whitney who offered the listing with $4.5 million price guidance. 

Paying $3.1 million in 2002, the couple had traded up to the north-facing 1177 square metre property overlooking the Lane Cove River from nearby Ernest Street.
