A Bensville acreage has recently sold for an eye watering amount, smashing the suburb record by over a million dollars.
The incredible property at 42 Palmers Lane was sold within the price guide of $3.3-$3.6 million, but the exact sale price was not disclosed.
Set on just over two hectares in walking distance of Cockle Bay, the property, sold by Tim Andrews from LJ Hooker Terrigal, was described in the ad listing as ‘Bowral by the sea’.

BENSVILLE HOME ON ‘SELLING HOUSES AUSTRALIA’ OPEN TO PUBLIC
Fascinating in design, the family home was renovated to honour the original circa 1910 architectural features, while taking full advantage of the surrounding green acres and water views.
Features included federation stained glass coloured windows, a wraparound veranda surrounded in manicured gardens and a magnificent staircase crafted from Red Gum stumps from the Murray River and Grey Iron Bark sourced from Queensland’s Hornibrook Bridge (1935-1979).
Downstairs showcased open plan living and multipurpose separate zones including a central lounge room with sandstone fireplace and double sided slow combustion heater, media room and an open-plan kitchen that spilled onto a large deck overlooking a pool.
The sale well and truly beat the previous suburb record for Bensville, which was set by a sprawling acreage at 5 Calool St.
