REVEALED $9M HOUSE SELLS IN JUST 5 DAYS
THE Peppermint Grove home of Shell Australia boss Zoe Yujnovich — who is moving to a new post in Europe — has sold within days of going on the market for close to its asking price of more than $9 million.
Agent Olivia Porteous, of William Porteous Properties International, said there was a lot of interest in the six-bedroom, fivebathroom home at Keane Street. It was snapped up by a local Perth family within five days of going on the market.
Designed by renowned architect Philippa Mowbray, the house was built on an 1821sqm block in the prestige suburb about eight years ago.
As well as multiple living spaces and soaring ceilings, it included an eight-car garage and a pool house with a steam room.
Ms Yujnovich, one of Australia’s most prominent business leaders, will move from Perth to Shell’s headquarters in The Hague in the Netherlands in January, where she will oversee the group’s oil and gas operations in 18 countries.
Ms Porteous said the prestige property market had become more competitive in the past six months, with more properties attracting multiple offers.
“It just goes to show that at the top end of the market, well designed, well built beautiful homes in good locations will always be sought after, regardless of the market,” she said.
The Keane Street sale follows the recent $11 million sale of an Applecross home on The Strand, an off-market deal that set a new record for the suburb for this year. That was the second-highest house price in the State this year, after sale of 1 Chidley Way in Mosman Park, for just over $12 million in April
