It took a Roseville family 30 years to decide to sell their home, and only 13 days to find a buyer with a check for $ 10.1 million.
Glenn curranMcGrath Lindfield says there are a lot of buyers at that price.
Conducted 24 private inspections in 58 Shirley Rd within days of the market launch of the 6480m2 property, and I issued six contracts to serious buyers.
He says it only took four offers to make the deal, which was well above the $ 8.8 million guide.
“It was very difficult to price because there hadn’t been anything like it on the market in a long, long time,” says Curran.
“Having multiple parties ready to pay in cash is a sign of how strong the market is right now.”
Roseville is going from strength to strength this year. In August, one of its most iconic properties, 35 William St, broke the suburb’s price record by roughly $ 5 million, selling through Lisa davies and Jessica Caoby Ray White Upper North Shore, for about $ 13.8 million.
The Shirley Rd home was due to go up for auction on Oct. 23, but Curran says the buyers, a family, were keen to secure an early sale.
“They just fell in love with the privacy, the space, and the gardens,” he says.
“It is a great result.”
There’s so much to love about the estate, which sits at the end of a private driveway, and features a tennis court, cabana pool, 1000-bottle wine cellar, and even a green.
The meticulously maintained Federation House has plenty of vintage charm, but is also packed with contemporary features to suit a variety of lifestyles.
Surrounded by a traditional wraparound terrace, the ground floor has a selection of formal and informal spaces in a large area. A highlight for buyers was also the unique circular home office with adjoining kitchen and separate entrance, ideal for anyone working from home.
Curran says agents are eager to hold public open houses and live auctions at the venue again starting this week, a reward for New South Wales that reaches 70 percent of double-vaccination status.
“We will see an increase in new quotes, but I think stocks will remain tight,” he says.
“I don’t see a major slowdown during the traditional Christmas period.”
And many buyers are now re-energized to buy to be in their new homes for Christmas, he says.
“We really have a window of about 30 to 40 days if you want to be in a new house for Christmas,” he says.
