The Bellevue Hill home of the Scheinberg family, who have spent around $60 million on the nearby trophy home Rona, has expectedly hit the market.

It comes with $16 million hopes.

Laing + Simmons Double Bay agents Bart Doff and Steven Zoellner describe the home one of Bellevue Hill's grand character residences.

The stately home on the dress circle Victoria Road has undergone a designer transformation in recent years.

Richard Scheinberg, from the property and cattle family, and wife Jacqui, have owned the home since 1994 when they paid $3.3 million.

There are five bedrooms, as well a home office, a 1,500 bottle wine cellar and an upper level living area with harbour views.

The master suite has its own walk in wardrobe and Calacutta marble spa bathroom.

In the 1,490 sqm landscaped grounds sits a tennis court, gas heated swimming pool and a two storey, self-contained, one bedroom guesthouse.

The Scheinberg's recently sold a Bondi Junction penthouse for $5.06 million.

They're set to emerge as the buyers of Rona, the Victorian Rustic Gothic Revival inspired home that has been on the market for two years.

Rona was built in 1883 by G.A Morell for Edward Knox, son of Sir Edward Knox, the founder of sugar giant CSR Limited.

It last traded for $20.5 million in 2005 when property developer Terry Agnew and now estranged wife, Kyril bought it from John Schaeffer, who had paid $9.6 million some 15 years earlier.

Schaeffer added the tennis court block for $1.235 million in 1992, reversing the 1949 subdivision of the original 3.2 hectare estate.

In 1995 he also reunited Rona with its former stables for $2.8 million, taking the holding to 5,700 sqm.
