Turramurra family home has plenty of surprises — including the price
From the outside, this well-maintained family home at 7 Ravenhill Rd, Turramurra, gives nothing away.
Like the indoor squash court featuring with basketball hoop, and the in-ground swimming pool in the back yard with its impressive natural rock waterfall.
Or that it comes with plenty of history.

The current owners bought the home from Dr Bronte Douglass, of Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology some 30 years ago.
As the owners told agent Phil Orr, of Orr & Co Estate Agents, Dr Douglass had built the home for himself.
He also owned the block of land next door, but when the local council declined his request to install a helipad, he decided to sell.
He moved on to Dural, where he build a larger home with a helipad. In June, 1979 the architect-designed house featured in Home Beautiful magazine with the headline “The house that’s a work of art”.
Celebrity aside, this home has, for the past three decades, been a much-loved family home, but the time has come for the owners to downsize.
Mr Orr said the home, which has a price guide of $1.7 million and an auction date of August 7, was attracting plenty of interest, with 57 groups through at the first open for inspection.
“It is a truly amazing house,” he said.
Featuring an abundance of space and endless natural light, the architecturally designed family home has multiple living zones, modern updates and leafy outlooks.
The property is located close to walking tracks, quality schools and is within the catchment for Turramurra Public School and Turramurra High School.
Other features include high vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, rumpus with a wood burner fireplace, kitchen with stone benchtops and Smeg induction cooktop, airconditioning in living areas, ample storage, and double carport.
The home is open this Saturday and Wednesday from 2-2.30pm. For more details, contact Mr Orr.
