Rozelle home set to smash suburb record by a million dollars after a stunning transformation
The Rozelle property record looks set to be broken by more than $1 million dollars following the listing of a cutting-edge, four-bedroom prestige home.
Listed with a $5.5 million to $6 million guide, 6 Clare St is on the market at a time when available prestige stock levels are at record lows.
If the Connor + Solomon designed home trades within the advertised price range, it will break the previous $4.1 million record set by 23 Margaret St in 2018 by nearly $1.5 million, according to CoreLogic data.

The property will however face competition to claim the suburb record, with controversial former ABC chairman Justin Milne selling his home on the same street with around a $5 million guide.
Pushing the boundaries of architecture, the property looks very different to the last time it traded hands in 2014 for $2.216 million. At the time it was advertised as a “prime landholding with a three-bedroom cottage on a 446sqm block.
Five years later it is now an executive sanctuary, architectural four-bedroom home with 495sqm of living.
Ray White Balmain’s Rebecca Fearon who is selling the property with colleague, Karl Howard, said the house is one of Rozelle’s best.

“The attention to detail is second to none and no expense has been spared to create a home that will set the bar for Rozelle,” she said.
High quality features include a swimming pool, underfloor heating, a spa that is operated by a smartphone, an internal lift and a four-car garage that has specifically been designed for luxury vehicles with a turntable.
Despite all the high-end finishes, Ms Fearon said the staircase is the most striking feature inside the house.
“It looks like a piece of the art, by the way it has been designed and crafted,” she said.
The second of the two living floors is a dedicated to a master retreat that features a bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, ensuite bathroom and a lift.
Other features include a Jetmaster fireplace, automatic blinds, Sonos system, a stone kitchen with hand-cut tile splashback and Ilve appliances. There is also a vast space with a bar, gym and media lounge.
When it came to designing the home, the vendor didn’t want any regular house, and had it crafted to be his forever home. Ms Fearon said the seller has opted to put it on the market as they are looking to move interstate.
For sale via private treaty, the property is being shown by appointment only and is attracting strong interest from a mix of downsizers, families and professional couples keen on entertaining.
“There is a lot of demand in this home due a shortage of supply and lots of buyers wanting to buy prestige property in the area,” she said.
According to CoreLogic, the highest recorded sale in Rozelle this year was the sale of a just completed property on Bruce St for $3.7 million.
In the 12 months to June 2019, the median sale price for houses in Rozelle has decreased 5.8 per cent. The median price now for a freestanding home is $1.53 million.
