A Park Orchards homeowner received an offer they could not refuse just seven days after listing their luxury property.
A family looking to upgrade splashed nearly $4 million on the landmark 46-50 Williams Road lifestyle home, which features luxurious indoor areas, swimming pool, tennis court, wine cellar, landscaped gardens and sweeping views.
The renovated house with deluxe finishes and fittings sold well above expectations, Barry Plant Doncaster east director Theo Politis said.
“The property is in a coveted pocket and sold to a family attracted by the good schools,” he said.
The outstanding result was one of many achieved by Barry Plant agents in October, after lockdown restrictions were lifted on onsite inspections and auctions in Melbourne.
Among the stunning sales were two mid-week Barry Plant auctions that gave the sellers a combined $1 million above their reserve prices.
A five-bedroom house at 45 Boronia Drive, Hillside, soared nearly $600,000 beyond the seller’s reserve to fetch $2.295 million in a six-bidder contest. A total of 16 buyers had registered to bid at the Monday evening auction.
The sale set a “new benchmark” for the area and more than 120 people watched the virtual auction, Barry Plant northwest group director James Hatzimoisis said.
“Bidding was strong … it has set a new estate record for the local area, in the Hillside 2000 estate,” he said.
The entertainer’s delight on nearly 2000sq m with bespoke finishes and a large workshop attracted mainly local families looking to upgrade.
The northwest group finished the week with a perfect auction clearance rate.
On October 28, the owners of 6 Cass St, Rosebud, walked away with an amazing $410,000 above their reserve at the $1.31 million sale.
A field of 28 buyers had registered to bid for the 1980-built house located in the “Paris end” of the suburb.
The four-bedroom house on a 761sq m block featured high ceilings, a large backyard and a shed and potential for a renovation.
The coastal home was sold by three sisters, Barry Plant Rosebud auctioneer Paul Cunnington said.
