The long-time Edgecliff home of the late Lady Marjorie Pagan, one of Sydney's grandest dames, has been listed.

Pagan resided in the townhouse for around four decades, after spending the prior decades in Point Piper with her company director husband, Sir Jock Pagan who had died in 1986.

It was in June last year when Lady Pagan died, aged 91, one week after a stroke.

The garden apartment comes with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study. It was filled with books and flowers.

The September 26 auction listing through Georgia Cleary at BradfieldCleary includes approved plans for a one bedroom studio.

French doors lead from the kitchen to a north-facing, stone-flagged verandah which overlooks the swimming pool and level lawn.

For decades Marjorie presided over the salon. Her retreat was the famed Kennerton Green, Mittagong estate.

Marjorie Hoskins was born at Windarra, her parents' house at Marrangaroo, near Lithgow, the youngest of six children of Sir Cecil Hoskins and his wife, Dorothy.

She sprang from a line of successful, philanthropic, industrialists and builders.

In 1924 the family moved to the gabled Hillside in Edgecliff then into Invergowrie at Exeter, a new house designed by her uncle.
