A new record has been set for a street in Sydney’s north following the successful auction of a family home.
The five-bedroom residence at 28 Kimberly Street, East Killara, sold for $4,270,000 earlier this month, smashing the previous street price record of $3.2 million.
Ray White Upper North Shore agent Jessica Cao says 12 registered bidders kept the auction going strong, before it was left to two families to battle it out.
“All the bidders were families trying to get into the area, coming from all over the state,” Jessica says. “There’s a huge demand for properties in this area.”
“You get a lot of space out here, and the environment is great – it’s very green and there are great schools, so it’s very appealing for families.”
Bidding on the two-level brick home started at $3.5 million, before finishing $670,000 above the reserve.
Jessica says the price was a reflection of the house’s quality.
Set back behind lush, manicured grounds, grand timber double doors welcome you into the residence. From the wide, curved staircase in the foyer, head to the adjoining formal lounge, where a vaulted, coffered ceiling is perfectly complimented by the cozy gas fireplace.
At the rear of the property, a large, open-plan space connects the kitchen, living and dining, before spilling out onto a generous entertainers terrace. The al fresco space is perfect for an afternoon gathering with a built-in barbecue and pizza oven, and best of all, a showpiece pool and spa with a waterfall feature!
“The house is so pretty, so it drew a lot of attention from the market,” Jessica says. “We had over 100 groups through the property, it was a really strong draw.
“The facade is a winner, and the quality of the build too.”
The upper floor hosts five bedrooms, with space left over for a family room, and a teen retreat for the kids. As for the master suite, the generous bedroom lets back to a walk through robe hiding a wonderfully stylish en suite!
The home was bought by a family moving to the upper north shore from the eastern suburbs, and Jessica says the young family will enjoy their new house for years to come.
