Combining Old English and classic Arts & Crafts detailing, historic Redhall was one of the most significant estates to be built in Wahroonga in the early 1900s.
Redhall was built in 1907 for Sir Robert Gillespie, one of the proprietors of Gillespie Brothers and Anchor Flour Mills in Pyrmont, later becoming a Director of the Bank of NSW and CSR.
The 1907 Federation house was built for flour-miller and staunch Presbyterian Sir Robert Gillespie, with major improvements in the 1930s that included the elaborate sunken garden inspired by the English gardens of Gertrude Jeckyll that remains today.
