Views across wa­ter seal deal

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REALESTATE -

A LONGUEVILLE fam­ily will now wake up to sweep­ing sights of Syd­ney each morn­ing, af­ter se­cur­ing a three-storey house in the sub­urb’s most sought-af­ter pocket for $7.41 mil­lion.

No. 65 Ara­bella St had more than 100 in­spec­tions and went un­der the ham­mer on Satur­day with two reg­is­tered bid­ders.

Belle Prop­erty Lane Cove’s Si­mon Har­ri­son, who sold the list­ing with Kim Wal­ters, said the two par­ties bat­tled it out for the fourbed­der once bid­ding kicked off at $6.5 mil­lion.

“It started with $100,000 in­cre­ments and dropped down to the $70,000s then $50,000s and so on,” Mr Har­ri­son said.

“The home was called on the mar­ket at $7.31 mil­lion.”

It achieved the sub­urb’s top auc­tion re­sult to date, he said.

The con­tem­po­rary res­i­dence, fea­tur­ing a stone kitchen, lift, triple garage and gar­den court­yard, is on 647sqm. The top two lev­els fo­cus on un­in­ter­rupted wa­ter views which stretch to­wards the Har­bour Bridge.

This can be en­joyed from bed­rooms, the for­mal lounge and dining room, and two ter­races span­ning the width of the house.

Mr Har­ri­son said it was this kind of scenery that at­tracted buy­ers to the pop­u­lar street.

“It is one of, if not the best, streets in Longueville, and ev­ery­one who moves to Ara­bella St is there for the har­bour and city sky­line views,” he said.

The sleek and stylish house was built in 2002 by the ven­dors, an older cou­ple, who were happy it sold to a lo­cal fam­ily. The buy­ers were up­siz­ing, Mr Har­ri­son said.

The agents also sold a water­front home in the sub­urb at auc­tion. The fivebed­der at 3a Nor­folk Rd sold for an undis­closed price above $4 mil­lion.

Mr Har­ri­son said the lo­cal mar­ket was strong de­spite a drop in the num­ber of bid­ders reg­is­ter­ing for auc­tions.

“Re­sults are still hold­ing firm and the top end is per­form­ing the best,” he said.

The Ara­bella St, Longueville, prop­erty has stun­ning views.
