Western Sydney Wanderers co-owner Glenn Duncan, and his wife, Lisa, have put their Victorian gothic trophy home on the market with a $12 million-$13 million guide.
The property is believed to the first prestige property to go up for sale after a bumper 2018 that saw records tumble.
Named Alllowah, the couple purchased for $8.5 million from Citibank’s Tim Robinson and his wife, Kirstine, in 2014, the Sunday Telegraph’s Johnathan Chancellor reports.

The 1881 sandstone residence had a makeover by interior stylist Lisa Burdus. The council-approved renovations were costed at $250,000 in 2015.
The 1239sqm property has views over Mosman Bay, as well as gardens designed by Paul Bangay from the Robinson’s ownership.
The five-bedroom property is believed to be one of the oldest homes on the lower north shore. Belle Property’s Helen Wilson and Tim Foote will be taking the home to a private auction on February 26.
The couple are selling the home for a new chapter overseas in Florida as empty nesters, following their three daughters all leaving the nest.
Mrs Duncan said they are sad to be selling after falling in love with the property after seeing it for the first time.
“I always wanted an old home and I loved ‘Allowah’ the minute I walked into it. The sandstone, the history of it … it was our forever home,” she said.
Unique elements created during the reno include 10 carparking and an internal lift entirely made of glass by Infinity Lifts, which won an award for the project.
“It’s got that quintessential mix of old world charm and modern style and the bay views are stunning,” Mrs Duncan said.
The home was built for Mosman pioneer Richard Harnett and his business partner, Sir Alexander Stuart.
