Smaller acreage appeals to Glenhaven buyers
A super-sized backyard helped a Glenhaven property achieve the suburb’s second highest price this year when it sold for $2.425m.
The Binet-built manor at 84 Greenbank Drive is set on a sprawling 4375 sqm block and features an established orchard with an array of fruits such as limes, lemons and peaches.
Agent Will Hampson from Lumby Hampson Real Estate said the property had wide appeal being a smaller acreage in the middle of suburbia.
“We had a few buyers from Dural and Kenthurst looking to downsize from five acres but the actual purchaser is coming from Melrose Park and keen to get away from congestion,” he said.
The property, which backs onto a bushland reserve, was listed on the market in late January. It was inspected by 54 groups during its marketing campaign.
There is no shortage of space inside the home with a front living room, formal lounge and dining plus family area and a separate rumpus.
In the kitchen, timber cabinets contrast with the striking dark counter tops and features stainless steel appliances, including double ovens, gas cooking and space for a large fridge.
Just off the rear of the home is an alfresco area with custom design sandstone tables and benches. It overlooks a lagoon shaped solar heated swimming pool. There is also an outdoor kitchen with five gas burner, a rotisserie and pizza oven.
“The land and the outdoor area — are spectacular. The property also has a wide street frontage and circular driveway which adds to the sense of grandeur,” Mr Hampson said.
The vendors, who have lived at the property for 20 years, are now moving to the Central Coast.
Latest figures from CoreLogic RP Data show there have been 16 sales in Glenhaven this year. The highest sale recorded is 6 Gilmour Place which fetched $8.8m in January.
