Hilltop home could smash suburb record with $2 million-plus hopes
A striking property that set tongues wagging during its lengthy build has hit the market for the first time.
And understandably, the Macarthur region’s sprawling hilltop home has attracted plenty of local and out-of-area attention.

CHARMING OLD CINEMA TO CHANGE HANDS AFTER 30 YEARS
Just a week after it was listed for sale, this Mount Annan residence has emerged as this week’s most viewed listing on realestate.com.au across the state.
The news came as no surprise to agent Steve Harrison from Ray White Macarthur Group, who said he was answering his phone to discuss it as soon as 29-31 Moyengully Ave went live online.
He has been “absolutely swamped” since last Friday, receiving about 150 inquiries in total with up to seven calls a day.
“This property is quite a local icon, especially in the Garden Gates estate,” Mr Harrison said.
“Because it’s right on the peak, people watched it being built over a two-year period, and the local gossip in the neighbourhood was that people thought it was going to be a community centre,” he said.
The five-bedroom mansion on almost 2400 sqm is expected to fetch more than $2 million, which would break all price records to date in the sought-after suburb.
According to the agent, the property was completed about five years ago. It was a labour of love for the owner, who had it built for his family.
“It’s a meticulous construction because he was the project manager, so he hand selected all of the tradesmen and chose every material that went into the house.
“He planned this build with great vision — he knew exactly what would go where.”
With panoramic views, the elevated home is suitable for wheelchair access and features a 350kg lift, 3m high ceilings, a built-in sound system, timber floors and solar panels.
Its mix of living spaces include a media room and a games room, fitted with a wet bar.
Outside, the entertainment area captures the district views, as does the partially covered in-ground pool which has laser water lights.
While the family have enjoyed calling the property home, they plan to offload it and move to acreage, after falling in love with living on a large block.

This has created a rare opportunity and buyers from near and far are showing genuine interest, the agent said.
Local residents as well as owner occupiers from as far as Newcastle, the northern beaches, Bowral and the Blue Mountains, are eager to snap it up.
Mr Harrison said a number of price offers were already on the table for the home, which is scheduled for auction next month.
