Sea or sand view in Maroubra: two $6m homes hit the market
Two $6 million homes have hit the market in Maroubra’s dress circle, Marine Pde, with two principals from the same real estate agency saying their listing is best.
One has ocean views of the coastline, while the other has beach views.
Phillips Pantzer Donnelley’s Jason Pantzer has the three-bedroom home on 600 sqm owned by Gloria and Neville Dunn, who are downsizing after 48 years at No. 24.

“Mine is on the clifftops … both are amazing positions, mine is a quieter enclave with spectacular views all the way back to Ben Buckler (North Bondi),” Mr Pantzer said.
He has a $6 million guide for a November 9 auction. With it being “ripe for a family rebuild”, he said the finished product could be worth “$12 million, maybe more”.
Meantime, PPD co-principal Alexander Phillips has No. 132, a four-bedroom home on a 544 sqm block, the deceased estate of Mary Delfendahl, who died aged 95 last year.
Not offered to the market for half a century, Mr Phillips has a $6.5 million guide for the November 16 auction.
He said: “Surfers will love it — they can stand at the window and check out the surf.”
Apart from its superior view — “it’s sandy, more dramatic” — its beachfrontage is 22m wide and there’s a north-facing rear yard guaranteeing plenty of year-round sunshine.
Mr Phillips said the 1958-era home could be knocked down by a developer although those interested at the moment simply want to live in it.
Both homes are set to be popular in a market that Mr Phillips said was “going nuts”.
“I’ve had 10 sales last week totalling $28 million,” he said. “It’s all going a bit crazy.”
No doubt both homes would be worth considerably more if they were further north. Realestate.com.au figures show the median house price in the beachside suburb the Bra Boys made famous is $1,769,500, less than half that of cream-of-the-crop Tamarama’s $3,925,000
