As 2017 swiftly draws to an end, we reflect on the impressive array of prestige homes sold across the Inner East. Personally selected by our agents for their show-stopping and considered design, these remarkable dwellings display impressive architecture and exceptional interiors.
In Boroondara, agent Nikki Van Gulick reflects on the widespread appeal of outstanding family home at 32 Nelson Road, Camberwell. With no heritage overlay, the 1890-built Victorian residence was extended in 1988 and again in 2001 with a second storey designed by architect Victoria Dartnell. Van Gulick says the home’s versatility appealed to both home and land buyers, with considerable 1470 square metres and a preferred north-south oriented tennis court.
Five families contested for 10 Elmie Street, Hawthorn on auction day. Agent Sally O’Connell says some buyers commented it felt like a boutique hotel. O’Connell explains, ‘The vendor presented the home immaculately, yet retaining an authentic warmth you could feel.’
“2017 saw a magnificent variety of exceptional homes sold and we look forward to handling the sales of an equally inspiring collection in 2018”
A bespoke design collaboration from Christopher Doyle and Canonbury Fine Homes in the highly prized Central Park precinct, is 13 Anderson Street, Malvern East. The lavishly finished home showcases the best of luxury and classic architecture, says agent Nicole French. Including lift access, basement parking and magnificent garden views from every room, French states the residence’s impressive elements saw it achieve an outstanding sale price well before the close of its ‘Expressions of Interest’ campaign.
‘Wattleglen’ at 15 Gladstone Avenue, Armadale achieved a record sale price. Agent Fiona Ansell-Jones observes the residence predominantly attracted young families seeking a ‘turn-key’ opportunity. The newly renovated period home features a state-of-the-art Miele kitchen, opulent ensuites and sensational children’s zone.
Agents Dahli Woosnam and Kate Strickland highlight the sale of Hamptons-inspired home, 24 Gordon Street, Hampton as a feature of the year in Bayside. A cul-de-sac address on one of the suburb’s finest streets, the newly renovated ‘Norton Rise’ includes bay views and a north-south tennis court on its strategically positioned 1088 square metre allotment on one of the highest points in the Brighton Beach precinct. Designed to be a lifestyle oasis, the residence combines two levels of luxurious living and a relaxed outdoor milieu.
