This 4 bedroom 5 bathroom estate was formerly the RONS Club (Retired Officers of Naval Services) and is an example of adaptive reuse. The property is a converted social club, and was established in 1946 as an exclusive private club for military officers after World War II. For many years the entrance foyer displayed an original copy of the Japanese surrender documents. Later, RONS Club became a favorite community pool, before becoming a private residence in the 2000s.
