It is an envied property with an exclusive address and has been listed with a guide that is set to establish a new sale high for Whitebridge.
Kate Rundle, of Walkom Real Estate, has listed the stunning, custom-built residence on one hectare of land at 38 Burwood Road with a guide of $4.75 million to $5.2 million.
According to Australian Property Monitors data, the top mark for Whitebridge is $3.85 million, established with the sale of another luxurious property on Burwood Road 12 months ago.
Ms Rundle reported six inspections in the first week on the market with strong local interest as well as enquiry coming from Sydney and interstate.
"It's a really special property," Ms Walkom said. "It's a bespoke property on two-and-a-half acres and it's just stunning. There's nothing around like it. It's private and it's quiet. It's setback and it's just beautiful. It's a one-off."
The three-year-old residence has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a study, upstairs master suite sanctuary and all-weather entertaining area. Gallery windows and large panels of sliding glass offer a backdrop of native gums throughout. It was designed by Anthrosite Architects and master built by Evan Graham.
A Marks Point property regarded as one of the most prestigious in its lakeside suburb could also break new ground, according to Josh O'Doherty of LJ Hooker Belmont.
The custom-built home at 1/100 Marks Point Road fronts Swan Bay with a private jetty that currently houses a 70-foot cruiser.
The tri-level home has a lift, four bedrooms, four bathrooms and an alfresco entertaining area complete with an outdoor kitchen, glass-front fridges, barbecue and a built-in beer tap.
"It's probably got the hallmarks for setting a suburb precedent and being one of the top-tier waterfront sales for the year," Mr O'Doherty said.
A guide has not been disclosed. It is being sold through expressions of interest and inspections are by appointment.
The highest sale for Marks Point, according to APM data, is $3 million recorded in 2016 for a waterfront home in Marks Point Road.
