Tim Storrier lists Blackdown at Bathurst with $4 million-plus hopes
Artist Tim Storrier and his wife, Janet, have listed their historic rural Bathurst estate, as well as their Double Bay pad.
They hope to get $8 million from the two offerings.
Blackdown, the Storriers' Bathurst estate, cost $2.5 million in 2008 when bought from the hair care product pioneer Anton Starling, who'd sought more than $3.5 million.
The 56-hectare property is four kilometres from the Bathurst city centre, at Eglinton.
The house was built for commissariat storekeeper Thomas Hawkins, his wife, Elizabeth, and their eight children after a land grant by Governor Thomas Brisbane.
Thomas Hawkins, a former British naval officer, had been appointed commissarial storekeeper at Bathurst in 1822.
Hawkins has spent 18 days to get across the Blue Mountains to Bathurst, where he selected the holding on the Macquarie River.
The Ian Stapleton-renovated homestead comes with tennis court, pool, dressage arena, stable complex, and a recently constructed artist's studio in its grounds.
Blackdown is listed with $4 million-plus hopes through Bill Bridges of Ballard Property Group and James Thompson of The Professionals Bathurst.
The Storriers' Double Bay residence has been in Janet's family since 1966 when the Holt Street property was bought by her parents, Meyer and Stephanie Marshall.
