Triple-Listed Woollahra ‘Town Residence’ Wants $6m+
Margie Blok broke news of the listing of 3 Wellington Street in a super-prime Woollahra locale. Situated just a few doors down from Headingley - the previously featured mansion that mysteriously disappeared from the listings a few weeks back - the 5/6-bedroom, 5-bathroom home on 457sqm has not one, not two, but three listing agents: Sally Hampshire of Laing + Simmons, Bill Bridges of Ballard Property, and Martin Schiller of Savills Residential. WTF? As of today (the property appeared on the “live” listings about 12 hours ago), only Sally Hampshire’s listing is visible (seen here). To combat that surprise with a lack-of-surprise, Paul Bangay is behind the gardens. The clean lines of his hedges suit the Neo-Georgian architecture (that Margie Blok weirdly, and mistakenly, calls “South African Colonial”) home well. It was constructed in 1990 under the design of David Walker after the sale of a tear-down in 1987 for $677k. In 2000, the home sold for $4m and today, the listing agents (all three of them), are expecting above $6m for the home. Residences on the more-desirable south side of Wellington Street rarely trade. Next-door neighbours #1 and #5 sold for $2.49m in Sep 1997 and $2.25m in Aug 1995, respectively.
The listing: 3 Wellington Street, Woollahra
