A “jaw-dropping” home in Hamilton East is poised to set a new sale high for the suburb after being listed with a price guide of $2.7 million to $2.9 million.
George Rafty, of First National Newcastle City, is marketing 21 Everton Street, a five-bedroom federation residence with a contemporary extension which is set on 1332 square metres of land.
There are limited offerings to the market for the inner city suburb, whose median sale price rose to over $1 million for the first time last year.
According to Australian Property Monitors data, there were just 16 sales in Hamilton East last year with a median price of $1.37 million, up 52.2 per cent on the median price of $900,000 for 19 sales in 2016.

The biggest house sale to date, according to APM data, has been $1.825 million for a home in 2015.
“In my opinion, it definitely will be a suburb record but the home does warrant that because it’s a huge block and I don’t think you could replace the existing house, garaging and pool for under $1.5 million,” Mr Rafty said.
“The back of the house is one of a kind; it’s so unique. The front of the house, because it is in the garden suburb conservation area, is federation style but a contemporary theme has been adopted for the rear, and it’s quite stunning.”
There is a fully tiled swimming pool with a single lap lane and a covered cabana, entertaining area.
The home is open for inspection at 4pm on Saturday.
An apartment complex in Newcastle’s Watt Street has “heaps of potential”, according to Walkom’s Scott Walkom.
The Cathona building, which features four large, classic Art Deco one-bedroom apartments and one commercial suite, has been listed with a price guide of $1.92 million to $2.1 million.
“It’s got a lot of potential maybe as furnished apartments or serviced apartments,” Mr Walkom said.
“The location is brilliant. It’s close to everything that’s benefiting from the revitalisation of the city and the light rail. It’s certainly a blue-chip area now.
“There’s also an older laundry area on the top floor which could be utilised for storage or additional units, subject to council approval.”
