The longtime Hohnen family residence at Forrest in Canberra was the capital's top auction result last month when sold for $2.1 million.

It was an early 1950s house built for the late Ross Hohnen, a pioneer ANU administrator from the late 1940s and first Canberran of the Year. 

He'd founded the Industrial Design Council of Australia in 1957.

The classic red brick, heritage home sits back on its 2614 sq m Empire Circuit corner block with two entrances. It sold through Peter Blackshaw Real Estate Manuka agent Mario Sanfrancesco.
