Heritage listed, historically important and hidden behind a gated and winding drive, “Coreega” spans some 5745sqm of prestigious Springfield terrain with spectacular views.

Where her palatial footprint and solid Freestone walls clutch a valuable glory box of memoirs including an illustrious cast of former caretakers…

Imposing original features include Gothic arches, leadlight, handsome reception rooms, rear servant’s quarters (and stairwell) 4 metre ceilings, 7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a grand cedar staircase – the axis to some 16 stately rooms.

Almost every room enjoys a view, French doors, and a fireplace. The best spot? Undoubtedly, the living room overlooking the garden – and upstairs, a master boudoir with balcony spying city lights and sunsets.

Upstairs also plays host to an authentic cinema room revealing velvet drapes and theatre-quality carpets; a glitzy prelude to a silver-screen performance, while below ground hides a cellar conversion (today fitted out as a soundproofed recording studio.)

From a celebrated past, Coreega deserves a new day; from the extravagant home to the garden, only your imagination can limit the entertainment value on offer – add a swimming pool or a tennis court on her sprawling splendour and indulge…

Colonel Frank Makin (C.1882), the Hon. George Riddoch (C.1888), and the Florey family (C.1906) all resided and entertained here, and Nobel Prize Winner Lord Howard Florey lived here prior to his revolutionary discovery of Penicillin.

You can imagine guests flowing through an enfilade of drawing, ballroom, billiard, and piano rooms, spilling out through French doors onto ivy-draped verandahs. Even Howard himself frolicked in these English-style gardens.

You could, too.

While Harry, the miniature pony, found fame here in 2002 when his controversial arrival met with as much furore as fanfare. Finally, after the owner’s passionate plea to Council, Harry was approved to stay and graze on this prized land.

Ponies, parties and penicillin discovery aside – create your own incredible future within one of Springfield’s finest properties.
