Height of lux­ury on acreage close to city

KIM Trad’s love af­fair with Dove Ct started al­most 20 years ago, but it took an­other six years for her dream to be re­alised.

Mrs Trad and her hus­band Tim pur­chased their sprawl­ing “house on the hill” 13 years ago where their chil­dren grew up en­joy­ing the acreage Bayview Heights block.

“Mum and I came to an open home at this prop­erty in 1997 for a sticky beak,” Mrs Trad said.

“I fell in love with it but couldn’t af­ford it.

“I al­ways wanted to own this home.

“Years later, in 2003, my hus­band and I were walk­ing in the neigh­bour­hood as we lived not far away at the time.

“We came past the home and it had a ‘for sale’ sign on it.

“We rang the agent, had an in­spec­tion the fol­low­ing day and put in an of­fer that evening. “Sold – we had our new home.” The cou­ple are now hop­ing to sell their home for of­fers above $900,000 to take up a busi­ness op­por­tu­nity else­where.

“We’ll miss ev­ery­thing – it is a peace­ful and re­lax­ing home,” Mrs Trad ad­mit­ted.

“We have the me­mories of rais­ing our chil­dren here.”

Real es­tate agent Grant Stone said the prop­erty was the ul­ti­mate fam­ily home.

“The big sell­ing points are the pri­vacy, el­e­va­tion and the close prox­im­ity to the city,” Mr Stone said.

“Very rarely does a prop­erty come on the mar­ket that of­fers the buyer just about ev­ery­thing a fam­ily could pos­si­bly want, and wish for in a home.”

Ren­o­vated be­tween 2010- ’12, the 25-year-old home has views across the city from the four bed­rooms and sep­a­rate study, high ceil­ings, and was de­signed to cap­ture the cool breezes.

There is also a pool, land­scaped gar­dens, a garage to fit six cars, sep­a­rate work­shop and so­lar sys­tem to run the house.
