Splash out on lux­ury

Herald Sun - Property - - PROPERTY CONFIDENTIAL -

FOR­MER Mas­ter Builders Aus­tralia na­tional pres­i­dent Trevor Evans knows a thing or two about build­ing — and he hasn’t held back at his op­u­lent Narre War­ren North es­tate, An­ketell Grove.

The sprawl­ing prop­erty fea­tures an in­door pool, gym, five bed­rooms and chan­de­liers at ev­ery turn, in­clud­ing in the kitchen, bath­rooms and huge dress­ing room.

The home, at 291-297 Hark­away Rd, was first listed about 10 months ago with Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Realty but lo­cal agency Peake has just joined the cam­paign.

Peake agent Kris­ten Turner said the prop­erty had to be seen to be fully ap­pre­ci­ated. “This is the type of prop­erty you need to ex­pe­ri­ence to un­der­stand it’s true value,” she said.

Mr Evans, who is also a past Mas­ter Builders As­so­ci­a­tion of Vic­to­ria pres­i­dent and has run his com­mer­cial build­ing com­pany, Be­con Con­struc­tions, for more than 28 years, used only the best prod­ucts and tra­di­tional build­ing tech­niques to cre­ate his French Pro­vin­cial style mod­ern man­sion.

French oak floors, Ital­ian tiles, or­nate plas­ter work, onyx and black gran­ite bench­tops in the kitchen, and a pool house with a lounge area, kitch­enette and pizza oven, are among other fea­tures in the prop­erty, which has a price tag of $9 mil­lion-plus. FOR­MER North Mel­bourne premier­ship mid­fielder Shan­non Grant had a big win last week­end when his Al­bert Park home sold af­ter auc­tion.

The gor­geous ren­o­va­tion at 181 Ker­ferd Rd ini­tially passed in for about $1.8 mil­lion on March 5 and then sold shortly af­ter­wards for an undis­closed price.

The clas­sic Vic­to­rian fea­tures con­tem­po­rary fin­ishes, a gran­ite kitchen and bright de­signer spa­ces.

The sale was han­dled by Greg Hock­ing, of Greg Hock­ing Holdsworth, who de­clined to com­ment.
