Torquay real estate continues to power through the Covid-19 turmoil as agents scramble to find stock to fill the high demand for coastal property.
McCartney Real Estate are on the frontline and have been inundated with enquiries for local property at all price ranges according to director Tim Carson, who has just sold a high-end esplanade property for $2,975 million.
“Properties at all price points have been keenly sought with most enquiry coming from Melbourne, however it was a Torquay local that snapped up the magnificent property at 261 The Esplanade,” Mr Carson said.
“This Wolveridge Architects designed home is one of the best we have had the privilege to bring to market and has been previously short-listed for the Victorian Architecture Awards.” “The property, that was once owned by V8 Supercars Bathurst winner Will Davison, was keenly sought by two buyers until the Torquay buyer came up with the goods.
“He had been looking for an Old Torquay property near the beach for some time, but when we showed him this property he was immediately impressed, and the deal was as good as done.”
Backing onto The Sands championship Golf Course and Clubhouse, the collaboration between renowned local builder John Walker and designer Wolveridge Architects has created one of Torquay’s most spectacular properties; breathtaking in beauty, remarkable in scale and with an uncompromised level of finish.
The home boasts two living spaces, the first an exclusive intimate lounge/media room with open fireplace and the other an expansive beautiful dining and superb living room with 5m ceilings and open fireplace. This spectacular second living area opens out onto the north facing entertaining area overlooking the magnificent 13m in-ground pool with picturesque views across the lush 10th fairway.
Another remarkable feature of this stunning home is the towering entry void with beautiful ‘floating’ spotted gum timber staircase housing an impressive glassed wine cellar underneath and 3.5m ceilings.
Described by the owners as “the nicest house they have ever lived in” this speaks volume of the property, notwithstanding this home to be one of almost twenty they have has the pleasure of owning over the years.
