On a weekend when temperatures soared well above 40 degrees across Australia, one real estate office in Sydney also experienced a heatwave of its own.
The Belle Property Strathfield team capped off a successful weekend by selling five out of five homes at auction on Saturday as the mercury hit record highs in Sydney’s Inner West.
A four-bedroom Burwood home sold for $1.71 million and a three-bedroom apartment in North Parramatta was picked up for $921,000.
A spacious five-bedroom property in Cecil Hills was snapped up for $1.125 million whilst 48 Cave Road in Strathfield was sold prior to auction for $1.63 million.
Perhaps the pick of the bunch was a marvellous seven-bedroom home at 21 Barker Road that really cranked up the heat.
The spacious luxury home had buyers purring over its unique features, which included a fully kitted out man cave and poolside area.
“The buyers loved the fact that this home had a generous land content and the architectural elements that it has – namely that resort-style backdrop,” said Belle Property’s Norman So.
“It doesn’t actually feel like you’re in Strathfield, with the mature bamboo screening it feels like you’re away on holiday in a resort,” he said.
The sellers had been hoping that the home would fetch $5.8 million at auction so they were left elated when the hammer came down at $5.925 million.
“The vendor’s children have got into a school on the North Shore, so it was a ‘must be sold over the weekend’ situation,” said Mr So.
“Their dream price was $5.8 million, but after a flurry of activity from three buyers, the price went right up to $5.925 million and was purchased by a buyer from Panania,” he said.
