Natasha McElwaine described interest for a near-new Hamptons-style residence with a rural outlook in Bolwarra Heights as "phenomenal" in the first 24 hours of it hitting the market.
Ms McElwaine, of McElwaine Estate Agents, is selling the property through an expressions of interest campaign, which closes May 17.
Offers are expected to start around $1.2 million.
"It's sitting in our signature range. I have sold properties that wouldn't even compare to this around $1.2 to $1.3 million," Ms McElwaine said.
"It's a Sam Horn masterbuilt home. He's a local builder and very well-known in the area. It's brand new and absolutely stunning. The owners built it to live in forever and they've had a change of direction.
"It's on the lagoon. It's full of style and it's lifestyle."
She received around 40 calls in the first day of marketing for the four-bedroom home on over 700 square metres of land at 9 Lagoon Avenue.
It appears modest from the street but features a pitched ceiling, spotted gum flooring, a stone gas fireplace, plunge pool and rear deck with expansive rural and lagoon views.
"Interest has been a real mixture between Sydney and Newcastle," Ms McElwaine said.
"A lot of people from Newcastle are selling up and moving out because they can buy bigger properties a little bit cheaper. And there's a lot of buyers coming out of the Central Coast too."
