Bellevue Hill's iconic estate, Rona, is finally close to a sale.

The property developer Terry Agnew and his now estranged wife Kyril put it up for sale in 2016 seeking only the fourth owner since built for the Knox family.

It was 2005 when Agnew paid $20.5 million for the 1883 hillside home, buying it from cleaning businessman John Schaefer who paid $9.6 million for the home in 1990 from the Knox family descendants.

Schaefer then added the tennis court block for $1.235 million in 1992, reversing the 1949 subdivision of the original 3.2 hectare estate.

In 1995 he also reunited Rona with its former stables for $2.8 million, taking the holding to 5,700 sqm.

The home dates back to 1883 when G.A Morell designed and built Rona for Edward Knox, son of Sir Edward Knox, the founder of sugar giant CSR Limited.

Richard Scheinberg has shown the keenest buying interest for the Victorian Rustic Gothic Revival inspired design through Bart Doff at Laing & Simmons Double Bay inconjunction with Ben Collier at McGrath Estate Agents.
