A SPRAWLING riverside property in Mt Pleasant could smash the southern suburb’s house sales record after hitting the market this week.
The 3653sq m block with 60m frontage at 35-37 The Esplanade and 12 View Road is the largest residential estate with a home in the area and set to exceed by millions the top sales price of $8 million achieved for a 1012sq m landholding at 259 The Esplanade in 2017.
Banovich Hillman selling agent Renee Banovich said the four-bedroom, three-bathroom mansion’s river views, elevation and immaculate surrounds including a full-size tennis court were also a rarity in the prestigious street.
“The land on the river side has been built up to be several stories above ground level on the Esplanade, where houses are typically much lower lying,” she said.
“The elevation is not only about a superior view, it also creates privacy from the street.
“At the rear, you enter via View Road and come to a flat block with beautiful grounds, so it’s very much like entering a grand estate.”
Ms Banovich said the view could be enjoyed from almost every room in the house and the owners, who wanted to remain anonymous, had spared no expense on the finishes.
“The home caters for every different entertaining occasion,” she said.
“There’s a large theatre room, wine cellar, study with custom cabinetry and all the living areas are designed to open onto the beautiful outdoor areas.
“It has very good size bedrooms and excellent separation, so it’s ideally suited to families, anyone who likes open space and those who want to enjoy the riverside lifestyle, with access on The Esplanade to bring in a kayak or boat straight off the river to a secure gated area.”
She did not disclose the property’s price guide.
