Crossways, Centennial Park finally sold

Historic Crossways at Centennial Park has finally been sold reputedly for about $15 million, after being on and off the market for several years.

The six-bedroom, five bathroom home on 1814sqm ranks as one of the finest examples of the Federation Arts & Crafts style in Australia.

The buyer has been pinpointed as art collector Naomi Triguboff Travers, by the local paper, The Wentworth Courier. 

The sale, if confirmed, betters the previous record by $3 million.

Centennial Park’s price record was set at $12 million in 2015 when the tech billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes and his wife Annie bought Braelin, on a 2200-square-metre Lang Road block.

The Martin Road home of Justice Deirdre O’Connor, the former Australian Industrial Relations Commission president, and barrister Michael Joseph, sold for the same price around the same time. It was a 2327 sqm property.

The 1814sqm holding on Martin Road was offered by the Zavattaros family who bought it in 2006 for $10 million.

It was designed by architect B.J. Waterhouse of Waterhouse & Lake.

The Federation Arts and Crafts residence was built in 1908 for surgeon Dr Gordon Craig. 

Now set in Paul Bangay gardens, the property was renovated extensively in the 1990s by architect Espie Dods for then owners, former McGuigan Wines director James Smiley and his wife, Jane.
