Lyndall Allan reported being "smashed" by enquiry ahead of the first inspection for a Waratah residence she described as "one of the most prestigious properties for the area".
The Robinson Property agent is marketing a five-bedroom home at 21 Oxley Road that was built around 15 years ago and, according to Australian Property Monitors data, sold for $940,000 in June of 2016.
A price guide has not yet been set for this campaign but the property is expected to produce one of highest sales for the suburb. According to APM data only two homes in Waratah have sold over the $1 million mark. One was Braeside, a grand Frederick Menkens designed 1895 residence in Lorna Street on over 2600 square metres of land. The other was Carclew, also an 1800s Victorian home on a substantial block in Lambton Road.
But Ms Allan said it was rare to find a modern offering such as the home in Oxley Road, which has formal and informal living and dining spaces, a granite kitchen, study, lock-up double garage and rear timber deck.
The home is positioned on an elevated corner block 645 square metres in size. It has expansive district views and an in-ground swimming pool.
"It's such a substantial property for the area. It's got everything a family would want and you don't often find that in that location," Ms Allan said.
It is open for its first inspection at 12.15pm on Saturday.
