The neighbours must have been disappointed. “We had sent out invitations to all of Moore Park for a wine and cheese exclusively for neighbours to view the home but we had to cancel because it sold before (the event) could take place,” says listing agent Myles Slocombe.
Although the market was slower in November 2022, he says interest and activity were strong.
The home had a lot of exposure, including agent preview open houses so realtors could tour the home on behalf of interested clients before it went to market, he says. “Approximately 50 agents come through. When we went to MLS there was already a lot of interest and about 30 showings were booked within the first two days.”
The 1926 home was purchased by the sellers in 2019 and they spent almost two years to renovate and expand it, he says. “It was widened by expanding two-thirds of the south side of the home and expanded at the back (which faces west) on all three levels. The whole house was gutted and most of it was reconfigured, the basement was underpinned and expanded and the highest-end materials and finishes were used.”
Slocombe says, “With the exception of keeping the proportions of the front living room and front third-floor bedroom, it was a complete transformation and is essentially a new home.”
The open-concept chef’s kitchen/family room/breakfast area overlooks the backyard and provides a smooth visual transition to the outdoor entertaining spaces, he says.
Slocombe’s favourite feature is the primary bedroom den “because it’s so unique and distinct. It has incredibly intricate millwork and wainscoting.”
The den also has a hidden door frame built within one of the walls so it can be easily opened to the second-floor hallway if future owners ever wanted to convert it to a bedroom, he says.
“A lot of people love that it has a built-in natural essential oil scent system that can disperse throughout the home.”
The 40×131-foot lot has a salt water pool and salt water hot tub, outdoor dining and lounge areas, and a cabana and barbecue area that has wine on tap.
