The price guide for 41 Battle Boulevard, Seaforth is $15 million to $16 million and after just a few days on the market contracts have been issued and interest is strong.
Last year the top price paid for property was $18 million for a new home in Palm Beach, at 40 Ocean Rd. An oceanfront house in Bower St, Manly sold last year for $16 million and a house at 167 Pacific Rd, Palm Beach traded for $15 million.
Currently the suburb record for Seaforth is $12.675.000 for a house in Laura St which sold in 2017.
But the six-bedroom Battle Boulevard house on 1429sqm of land with deepwater frontage, boatshed and award-winning garden has come to market with a guide that blows the record out of the water.
David Rothschild, of The Agency, said he has been inundated with inquiries from buyers from overseas and locally and believes the suburb has been undervalued for some time.
The designer house has a separate apartment, snooker room, 30-seat cinema, two kitchens and a 20m swimming pool. The owners are nickel miner Peter Goudie and his wife who have spent $500,000 redesigning the tiered gardens down to the water’s edge and which have won national awards.
Mr Rothschild said the block is the biggest of the street, the house is 970sqm internally and there is easy entry from the street to a four-car garage.
A four-stop inclinator leads from the street to the water with a jetty which can accommodate a 50’ yacht.
