A fabulous Sydney home has been snapped up by local buyers, before even making it to auction.
The marvellous property, at 39 Barons Crescent, Hunters Hill, was sold for $5.6 million ahead of going under the hammer, with the current owners looking to move closer to the water.
Real estate agent, Tracey Dixon, of McGrath Estate Agents told OzHomeNews about this fantastic four-bedroom property, and what was so special about it.
“It was a very high-quality home and quite bespoke inside. It had lovely features, those little extras like beautiful fireplaces and a wonderful tropical fish tank built in,” she said.
“The owner was an absolute perfectionist and everything was just beautifully done, there was even a bonsai garden in a small little courtyard off the lounge.”
One of the main features of the property that stood out for prospective buyers, was the large car parking facilities.
“The basement level offered eight car accommodation, it’s hard to get that sort of extra space in a property, and that area also had a cinema room,” Ms Dixon said.
The vendors of the property had built the home themselves in an area of Hunters Hill which has seen an increase in development in recent years.
“It’s more the western side of Hunters Hill, which, over the last five-ten years has become extremely attractive for families because you can build new homes there,” Ms Dixon said.
“There are a lot of new homes springing up in the area but this is one of the higher end builds.”
And it’s no wonder that a home of this quality caused quite the stir when it was brought to market.
“We had over 100 people inspect the home, with local buyers as well as some that are quite significantly out of the area,” said Ms Dixon.
With an original price guide of $5 million, the home fetched significantly more before its auction date, a fitting result for an incredible property, as Ms Dixon explained.
“The vendors are very happy with the result, it was great to achieve that sale price and I think it was well deserved given they had designed and finished the home beautifully,” she said.
The sellers are now looking to potentially move closer to the water in search of a more scenic view.
“They’re probably going to upsize into something with water or city views, perhaps something closer to the water, that’s their goal,” said Ms Dixon.
