Everything inside a Gordon home will go under the hammer from 11.30am on Sunday, giving collectors and bargain hunters an opportunity to bag some rare and unusual items.
Items including furnishings, Australian and European paintings, sculptures, household items, antiques, Persian carpets and watches will be sold to the highest bidder on the day.
For some people it will be a consolation prize to anyone who missed out on buying the house at 24 Highlands Ave, after it sold prior to auction for an undisclosed sum in October.
It is believed that the 1908 Federation residence sold for around $3 million, according to CoreLogic.
Charleston’s Fine Art Auctions who will run the event declined to comment on the reasoning for the auction, but the online listing says they have been appointed “under instructions from the vendors due to the recent sale and upcoming settlement”.
For lovers of art there is a number of incredible paintings including by Brett Whiteley, Margaret Preston, David Boyd, Norman Lindsay and Mark Hanham “Sydney” paintings, which are worth some serious money.
If sport is more your forte there is signed memorabilia of Sir Donald Bradman and the recently retired Tim Cahill.
Other items going under the hammer include a large Persian Nain rug, which can retail for thousands of dollars, plus some tribal rugs and Aboriginal acrylics by Gloria Petyarre.
If you are after furniture, there is a grandfather chair, Victorian mahogany sideboard, coffee table, display case and a bookshelf. Outdoor items include a A Cotswold table, garden sculptures and water features.
Some of the more interesting items that people can buy is a men’s watch collection including brands like TAG Heuer and a semiprecious stone globe.
Named Gordonbrae, the character home is located just off Mona Vale Rd and is a short distance to the train station.
The property features a fireplace, high ceilings, claw foot traditional bath and a swimming pool with gardens.
There is also dual street access from both Carlotta and Highlands Ave.
A preview of the hundred plus items will go be held before the auction at 9.30am.
