Highgate, the historic Clayfield home, has been listed for sale for a July 6 auction.

Designed by Richard Gailey, the 1920's Spanish mission residence at 117 Adelaide Street E, Clayfield has been tightly held for the past four decades. 

It was once owned by Elizabeth Hart, a pioneering female in Brisbane law circles.

Hart worked at Flower and Hart Solicitors, one of Brisbane's oldest and largest legal firms. 

Set on 1,710 sqm, Highgate has six bedrooms, formal and informal dining and lounge rooms, a freestanding office and a billiard room.

Under a terracotta tile roof, Highgate still has a number of original features, including a working fireplace, lead lighting, french doors, hardwood floors, decorative horse-hair plaster ceilings, and hand-cut crystal chandeliers.

In the grounds is a saltwater swimming pool.

Christine Rudolph and Matt Lancashire of Ray White New Farm has the listing.
