ONE of Chelmer’s most recognisable homes has sold for $2.95 million after attracting multiple offers.
The grand, Colonial-style home at 41 Richmond St sold after auction to an expat family.
Marketing agent Ann-Karyn Fraser of Place New Farm said
two expat families made multiple offers for the property, which received strong interest from overseas buyers during its sale campaign.
“It’s such an iconic home in the area,” Ms Fraser said.
The beautiful, big family home on a huge 1300sq m block had recently been renovated by architect Elizabeth Watson-Brown.
The chef’s kitchen was designed to flow out to a wraparound timber deck and veranda, overlooking a saltwater pool and landscaped yard with an 80-year-old Poinciana tree.
Other features include timber floors, Louis Poulsen pendant lighting and VJ walls.
“The big thing with this property is that it’s on one level,” Ms Fraser said. “That was appealing.”
She said the prestige market in Chelmer had been performing well. The suburb is 7km from the CBD and has a median house price of $1.05 million, CoreLogic data shows.
