A striking property built by architect Philip Pollard as his own home and later updated through a Bourne + Blue designed renovation has attracted a mix of local and out-of-area interest in its first week on the market.
Tom Lemke, of PRD Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, has listed the relaxed beach house in a coveted pocket of Newcastle real estate at 46 Coane Street in Merewether with a guide of $3.65 million to $4 million.
Wide eaves, louvre windows and curved ceilings harness both natural light and sea breezes. There are three bedrooms and living on the main level with an upper level devoted to a parents' retreat complete with an office, ensuite, sitting room and deck.
Around the corner from 46 Coane Street is another Merewether property expected to garner a range of interest.
Robinson Property's Mike Flook is marketing the four-bedroom house at 46 Frederick Street on what is being described as "one of the last remaining large blocks" in a tightly held position.
A home in an exclusive part of Dudley and with breathtaking bush and water views reportedly attracted around 100 enquiries in less than 24 hours of being on the market this week.
Belle Property Newcastle's Katie Kepner said interest has been a mix of local and Sydney buyers for the four-bedroom house on 1005 square metres of land at 39 Seacourt Avenue. The property backs on to reserve. It is set for auction on October 9.
A price guide has not yet been set. A four-bedroom house at 45 Seacourt Avenue sold for $1.55 million in April.
"It's such a special home and a unique setting within Dudley, and there's only two listings in Dudley," Ms Kepner said.
"More than we have had on anything else, we are getting a lot of Sydney interest on this."
"What we're finding is anything up to that $2 million mark, Sydneysiders are very interested because what you can get up to $2 million in Sydney doesn't even compare to what you can for that price somewhere in Dudley."
