A sale at around this point would see the Woolwich home claim the highest recorded sale in the suburb for the year.
According to CoreLogic data, 3 Aspinall Pl has the current highest sale price in Woolwich after selling in September for $4.842 million.
With rolling green lawns and established gardens at the tip of the Woolwich Peninsula, the listing ad describes the home as a “rare opportunity to secure a landmark position that feels more like a country estate”.
The charming home contains many period features including decorative ceilings, chandeliers, stone fireplaces and red cedar floors.
The character kitchen blends the old and the new, with tile splashbacks, stone benchtops, gas cooking and old school cabinets.
Visible behind the manicured hedges is the main draw of the property — iconic views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and harbour.
The listing ad also mentions that buyers have the potential to subdivide the block if given approval by council.
Mr McConnell has worked for a number of companies in the financial services industry in Australia, including NAB, Grant Samuel and Rothschild. He and his wife have lived at the property with their family since 2001, according to CoreLogic data.
