Apollonia, the historic Bowral retreat of former the Westpac chief executive Frank Conroy and his wife Jan, has been sold.

They plan to spend more time at their Bendalong beach house following the sale through Belle Property Bowral agent Di Dixon who was seeking around $3.5 million.

The 1890 home takes its name Apollonia after the patron saint of dentistry given its long earlier ownership by the local dentist.

The charming Merrigang Street home was built circa 1890 for Julia Welford as a guest house to her residence next door, but is better known locally as the long-time home of dentist Douglas Hedberg until 1954.

It was Robert Uliana who undertook its substantial renovation along with adding its two-bedroom guest house and indoor, heated lap pool.

Last traded in 2005 for $2.95 million, Apollonia, is a charming timber Bowral residence on 2600 square metres in Merrigang Street.

It is tipped to have sold to an Elizabeth Bay buyer.
