“They weren’t really looking but this one caught their eye and they have now bought their dream home, it is a great result,” Mr Ibrahimi said.
“There was a lot of interest on it towards the end, the market was really strong in December.”
The Buxton-listed property is a modern masterpiece with the house spread over two luxurious levels.
The ground floor consists of three bedrooms, two with walk-in wardrobes and ensuites, and a family room with bar that flows outside to the indoor solar and gas heated swimming pool and entertainment area with barbecue below a Vergola roof.
Upstairs is the open-plan kitchen, meals area and loungeroom, main bedroom suite and indoor/outdoor entertainment room.
The kitchen has Gaggenau dual ovens, custom Caesarstone waterfall island bench, induction cooktop, in-built wine fridge and a full butler’s pantry while the dining room has a huge hand blown glass chandelier from Spain.
A full outdoor kitchen with two dishwashers and barbecue is found in the all weather entertainment room that has a gas log fireplace.
The extravagant home smashed the suburb record of $902,000 which was set in 2016 by the 2022sq m site at 58 Sladen St.
The median house price in Hamlyn Heights has increased 11 per cent in the past year to $536,750, according to CoreLogic.
