The Strathfield trophy home of the late leviathan bookmaker Harry Barrett has been snapped up pre-auction through George Ellis and Co Strathfield father and son listing team Sam and Joseph Georges who had record setting hopes.

The current Strathfield residential record stands at $8.8 million for a Chalmers Road, Strathfield property owned by Sanity boss Ray Itaoui which was sold by George Ellis & Co.

It was listed for sale by Patricia, the widow of the noted bookmaker and used-car salesman.

They had bought it from Andrew Kelly, the then boss of Strathfield Car Radio, for $1.9 million in 1996 through Sam Georges.

Set privately behind gates and a walled entry, the home spans 725 square metres.

It has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a billiard room, home theatre and study.

On the 2365 square metre grounds, there's a swimming pool, a cabana with its own sauna, and an all weather tennis court.
