An exquisite residence described as possessing “something special” has broken the house price record in Heathmont, a sought-after outer-eastern suburb recognised for its family-friendly lifestyle, amenities and verdant surroundings.
Barry Plant Heathmont & Ringwood director Louise Carrigg confirmed that the property, located at 69 Dickasons Road, sold for above its $3.4-$3.7 million price guide in a mere 38 days. The four-bedroom dwelling, sprawled across 2982 sq m, intrigued several potential buyers, with two making offers closely aligned with the final sale price.
The recent sale price shattered the previous record held by a house at 1 Ilford Rd, which sold for $2.471 million in April 2022. “The buyer came from our database, while the person who missed out wasn’t looking at Heathmont until they saw the listing in the Domain magazine,” Ms Carrigg explained.
The hefty price tag defied expectations, as Carrigg noted, “Not everyone expected the property to fetch such a price, but it showed that we have buyers willing to spend to live in the area.” She added that the tight housing supply was fuelling competition, leading to swift sales.
Built by a prominent developer and their textile-artist partner as a family home, this modern marvel situated in a prime locale had been showcased on Channel 9’s “Australia’s Best Homes” TV series, hosted by Megan Gale. It impresses with chic fittings, a poolside entertainment area, and stunning native vistas.
“The owners designed every nook and cranny and it featured textural elements and environmentally friendly features, and buyers just loved the home,” Ms Carrigg shared. The sophisticated home tastefully merges modern design principles with natural elements, creating an intimate bond between luxurious living and the encircling landscape.
The property boasts soaring ceilings, a spacious open-plan living and dining area, clerestory windows, a luxurious fireplace, skylight, and a state-of-the-art kitchen inside. Sliding doors open up to a covered alfresco complete with a bar and wine fridge, linking to a heated pool and spa, a paved entertainment area, and a native flora-filled backyard.
Arranged in two separate wings, the bedrooms offer a sense of privacy, with the extravagant parents’ retreat featuring an adjoining office, window seat with views, a sizeable walk-through wardrobe, and a lavish ensuite. Additional features such as a home theatre, wine cellar, gymnasium and a substantial studio truly elevate this home to the pinnacle of luxury living.
