St Aubyn’s, the Woollahra home of artist Elizabeth Wadsworth, has finally been sold. It has been on and off the market since 2013, initially listed at $10 million.

The prominent Queen St sandstone home, one of the suburb’s finest, was built in 1850. Set on a 442sqm, the three-bedroom house is built around a private courtyard. 

Wadsworth, a former interior designer, paid $940,000 in 1994, and then sympathetically doubled its size, excavating the downstairs and adding courtyards to bring in sunlight. 

It was all done in time to host the party after her 1997 wedding to sports management boss Robert Joske. The parties continued including Steve Waugh’s retirement celebration.

Wadsworth, who is represented in private and public galleries around the world, had it listed through Pauline Goodyer in conjunction with Randall Kemp of Ray White. Their most recent conservative price guidance was $8.5 million to $9.3 million.

Sydney art patrons Gene and Brian Sherman sold their nearby Queen St home midweek, too. 

The 1880s residence Corinth fetched around $16 million through Ben Collier at The Agency.
