The blue blood Hordern family's longheld Bellevue Hill trophy has finally sold.

The heritage-listed Ginaghulla Road home, which has been in the Hordern family name for 84 years, had a recent guide of $22 million.

It initially sought $30 million when listed in late 2016.

It sold Thursday night at an undisclosed price. The Wentworth Courier had by mid-Friday suggested it fetched $21 million.

Property Observer is aware there had been a recently rejected $23 million offer by buyers who instead bought pre-Easter at Rose Bay.

The Hordern House was built as a wedding gift for June Baillieu and Samuel Hordern, who united two of Australia's most prominent families.

One of Sydney's most famed architects Professor Leslie Wilkinson was commissioned to design the home some 80 years ago.

The Knox family sold the 2700 sqm parcel that had been part of the landmark Rona estate for £6,000.

In classic Wilkinson fashion, the home, still etched with the Hordern family coat of arms, is set behind a walled entry with a forecourt in a church-style.

Behind Spanish Mission-style arched doorways sits eight bedrooms, five bathroom and two kitchens, spread across an east and west wing.

The swimming pool was added in the late 1980s.

The Hodern House was passed around agency's before being sold by Ray White Double Bay agents Gavin Rubinstein and Elliott Placks
