We knew it had been too long since a true trophy estate in Bellevue Hill surfaced on the market, especially seeing that rival suburbs Darling Point, Point Piper, Vaucluse, and Mosman can all claim their own collection of big ticket homes languishing on the market. Enter 101 Victoria Road. Not only does it score a Victoria Road address, but its hilltop position grants the home 180 degree views spanning from Bondi Beach to Sydney Harbour.
The 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom home sits on a generous 1,368sqm flagpole parcel of land that last swapped hands for a very full-priced $10.2m in Nov 2007. The owners then undertook a $1.019m renovation that saw the addition of a salt water infinity-edge pool (that overlooks Lachlan Murdoch’s compound) and extensive interior and exterior refurbishments all while maintaining the original house footprint. The result is impressive: extensive wood panelling, a modern kitchen, and plenty of view orientation. On the downside is a street-level double car garage that’s a short hike from the residence and surprisingly small bedrooms. Nonetheless, we presume this home, if it sells in 2012, will hold the claim for Bellevue Hill’s biggest sale of the year.
