The first completed townhouse on the Rothiemay estate will come to market this weekend.
A NEW chapter will begin in the colourful history of Wahroonga’s famous Rothiemay estate this weekend.
The man who restored Rothiemay to its former glory, has turned unused land at the back of the 8600sqm property into a townhouse development.
Ray Nolan, who purchased the estate in 2016 for $4.7 million, has built six townhouses which he says capture the spirit of the historic property.

The first completed townhouse will hit the market this weekend with Ray White Wahroonga’s David Walker. The agent said he has never seen townhouses constructed like this before on the north shore.
The townhouses are located behind the historic “Rothiemay” home in Wahroonga. The development is by the same people who restored the home. Picture: Sam Ruttyn.
“It’s a perfect example of the old and the new,” he said. “The quality and the cutting edge designed blends the character of Rothiemay with a modern sleek design through elements such as high ceilings.”
Huge interest is expected when the doors swing open for the first inspection this Saturday, Mr Walker said.
“With all the interest surrounding the restoration of Rothiemay, these townhouses will bring out people looking to not only see the next chapter in this estate, but also those looking to live in a prestige area surrounded by history,” he said.
Unit 4 is the first that will be completed and will come to market on Saturday. It has four bedrooms and a large open plan layout. Picture: Troy Snook.
This is the communal reserve located behind the townhouses at 35A Fox Valley Rd.
The subdivision has played a role in funding some of the restoration works on Rothiemay and the project won praise in the Ku-ring-gai Architecture and Urban design competition last year.
The first completed townhouse up for sale will have four bedrooms over two levels, a private courtyard and a garage.
It sits on the former grounds of the Thomas Alfred Field’s pastoral empire on Fox Valley Rd.
