It’s been a strong start to the year for Brisbane’s prestige property market, with the city’s first riverfront home sale of 2020 fetching almost $4.6 million.
A trophy home at 77 Macquarie Street in Teneriffe has sold through Sarah Hackett of Place Estate Agents.
The three-level, four-bedroom home comes with a study, a library, a games room and views of the river framed by floor-to-ceiling glass.
The buyer owns in Noosa, but bought the Teneriffe property as his Brisbane base.
After attracting multiple offers, the home sold for $4.575 million.
The Catalina project was built more than a decade ago, as part of a project to transform what were formerly derelict wharves into an exclusive residential riverfront precinct.
Teneriffe is Brisbane’s most expensive suburb, just 2km from the CBD and with a median house price of $1.85 million, according to CoreLogic.
In the nearby suburb of Ascot, another two big sales have been finalised.
A European-style, luxury home on 1224 sqm at 37 Baldwin St, Ascot, sold for $4.8 million through Penny Halliwell of Ray White – Ascot.
The property features a 13m lap pool, a championship-sized floodlit tennis court, and multiple terraces, formal and casual spaces.
Capri sits in a leafy locale close to Racecourse Rd’s cafe precinct and the Brisbane River, and spans two huge levels with five bedrooms.
And at 89 Towers Street, Ascot, a five-bedroom, five-bathroom house has changed hands for $4.625 million.
The property features an eight-seater cinema, a four-car garage, a 1000-plus bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar and a gymnasium.
The sale was negotiated by Tom Lyne and Hamish Bowman of Ray White – New Farm.
