A fabulous waterfront property right by the finishing line of the Sydney Hobart yacht race has been snapped up for $5.1 million.
The perfectly positioned Hobart pad was secured by local buyers in a private deal and is just the second home to have sold on its street in six years!
The three-bedroom coastal home at 14 Clarke Avenue really is a boater’s dream with vast glass windows framing an idyllic outlook of yachts upon the Derwent River backdrop.
Knight Frank’s Pam Corkhill negotiated the landmark sale of the exclusive Battery Point residence and said Hobart’s market is performing very well at the moment.
“Clarke Avenue in Battery Point is one of your most prestigious streets, only two homes have sold there in the last six years, so it’s very tightly held,” she says.
“It’s quite sheltered and is titled to high water mark. The Salamanca precinct is right on your doorstep, too, so in terms of location it’s spot on.”
The property also features multiple balconies and even a 1000-bottle wine cellar, ideal for enjoying a glass or two as one of the world’s biggest yacht races comes to town.
“It takes just a six-minute walk to get to Salamanca market on Saturday mornings and you’re almost on the finishing line of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race, too,” Pam explains.
With offers above the $5 million mark encouraged for the prime waterfront home, the sellers were more than happy to fetch more as they move on to pastures new.
“The vendors are relocating interstate to be closer to their grandchildren,” Pam explains.
