An architecturally designed home believed to be a half-way house between Melbourne and Sydney for politicians in the 1970s is drawing potential buyers from both capital cities 50 years later.
Table Top property Dunraven was originally built in 1972 for former member for Farrer Sir David Fairbairn who commissioned architect Sir Roy Grounds for its creation.
Sir Roy is most famous for his design of The National Gallery of Victoria and if this property was built in a capital city PJ Murphy real estate agent James Seymour believes it would have a heritage overlay.
It is rumoured to have hosted plenty of parties during Sir David's political career with politicians meeting between the two capital cities.

And now the Old Sydney Road, five bedroom property is gaining interest from buyers for its history, location and design.
"The majority of interest has been from Melbourne and Sydney, more so from Melbourne now the borders have opened up," Mr Seymour told The Border Mail.
"The architect Sir Roy Grounds has a number of properties in Melbourne that he designed that are heritage listed.
"This property surprisingly doesn't have a heritage overlay but I think if it was in Melbourne it definitely would have one - it sort of slipped under the radar."
Mr Seymour said the original property was set on 15 acres, but the property now sits on two five acre lots.
"We've had a large number of people, around 200 groups, through the property and we have a couple of offers on the go but nothing has been accepted as yet," he said.
"It hosted some pretty remarkable parties in the early 70s I am led to believe with the tennis court, pool, sauna, wine cellar, bar."
The current owners have lived on the property for just on nine years.
The homestead boasts six metre-high ceilings, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, entertainer's bar, underground wine cellar, open fire, wood space heater, gas hydronic heating, ducted airconditioning and split systems, guest apartment, in-ground pool, sauna and a tennis court.
Mr Seymour is hosting an open home at the property on Saturday from 10am to 10.30am.
