The historic 1880 Fitzroy House in Adelaide has been listed for sale, for the first time since 2001.

Built for South Australian senator, early Australian Attorney General and part-time viticulturist Sir Josiah Symon, the home has been restored since last traded for $800,000 when bought by the Thomas family.

Set on 2,500 sqm botanic gardens, the six bedroom, four bathroom home spans 800 sqm over two levels.

The gracious ballroom is the showpiece.

A floodlit lawn tennis court and heated swimming pool lie either side of the central entertaining area.

Bernard H Booth agent Jamie Brown has the listing.

Fitzroy's price record was set in 2012 when the Snell family paid $3.675 million for the nearby 1890 Carlton House, when $4 million had been sought.
