Lethington, Summer Hill
Update: SOLD for $2,305,000
Lethington, a grand residence in Sydney’s Summer Hill, is going up for auction in March. The Victorian Free Classical / Italianate Gentleman’s Residence was built by William Fowler in 1883.
Mr. Fowler sold the house a year later to M.B. Bowen, but moved back into the home by 1892, possibly having purchased it when it was up for sale in 1888. It was described in the 1888 sale listing as a large modern residence, faithfully built, with stables, coach house, loft, man’s room, vegetable garden, orchard and paddock. The Fowler family are presumed to have named the house ‘Lethington’ in 1894. Read the rest of this entry »
