A prestigious trophy, “Coombe Grange” sits proudly on what was originally part of the "Eye of the Peninsula Estate" subdivided in 1914 and was purchased by Dr Cecil Purser.
Purser then sold the property in 1921 to Reginald & Florence Snelling, whose family owned and operated a successful printing business in Glebe. Snelling printed catalogues for close friends the “Grace” family who operated and ran a large department store, later known in Sydney & Melbourne as Grace Bros.
Snelling commissioned architect Spencer Spasfield to design the home that was finally completed in 1923 and later extended in 1925 which now stands today.
