Woodleigh at Old Red Hill listed with record price hopes

Canberra is set to see its record broken with Woodleigh, the vast garden estate in the Old Red Hill heritage precinct on Canberra's Golden Mile.

It's on the pricey Mugga Way, Canberra's most sought after street. The only two homes to clear $7 million are on the same strip.

Berkely Residential agent Bill Lyristakis is marketing the home.

Woodleigh was previously a record setter when it sold for $2 million in 2000, topping the previous $1.79 million high.

It was sold by Gordon and Doreen Smith, the owners of Discount Tyre Service, to the current vendors, economist Clive Rodger and wife Lynlea.

Woodleigh has hosted the Open Gardens scheme and a number of musical events have been held on the sweeping front lawns of the 7,965 square metre grounds.

Built in the 1980s, the two storey home with over 500 square metres of floor space has four bedrooms, a games room and an underground cellar and home office.

In the gardens there's a 13 metre heated salt-water swimming pool and cabana, international sized floodlit tennis court and adjacent barbecue area and a koi pond.
