A historical 1904 Killara trophy home has been sold for $5.45 million, the most expensive result across Sydney over the weekend.

Located at 66 Springdale Road, the north facing Poitiers was marketed as an iconic Killara estate. 

The home has just hit the market with a price guide of $4.9 million to $5.3 million.

Sitting on 1,906 sqm with 35 metres frontage, it was once home to Bert Oldfield, the famous test cricketer.

Poitiers, at 66 Springdale Rd, was owned by Bert Oldfield and his wife Ruth for 47 years, before they sold it to the current owners John and Patricia Mortlock, the parents of former Australian Wallabies captain Stirling Mortlock. The Mortlock family purchased Poitiers from the Oldfield family in 1976 for $127,000. 

The Oldfields, who were the third owners of the home, bought it from Sydney socialite Paul Dekyvere in 1931.

Featuring timber joinery, ceilings and original fireplaces it also has a ballroom-sized formal lounge, music area and large formal dining.

The property has been improved over the years including a gourmet kitchen with stone and timber benchtops, appliances and an adjoining dining area along with an alfresco terrace that overlooks a 14 meter sandstone clad pool.
