A trophy mansion in Camberwell, listed for private sale last month, is exchanging hands for a speculated price of more than $12 million – becoming the leafy eastern Melbourne suburb’s first eight figure deal.
The Waterloo Street home, on a 2960 square metre battle-axe shaped block with a tennis court, putting green and swimming pool, includes a double-storey mansion with five bedrooms, a study, theatre room, rumpus room and gym.
This property was the third in three months to challenge the $8 million suburban price record set at the end of 2016 when 1909 mansion Carramah, at 31 Canterbury Road, was sold by Kay & Burton’s Scott Patterson and Rebecca Edwards. A year earlier, another historic mansion, Clifton, in the suburb’s revered Tara Estate sold for $7.7 million
In July a modern home in Camberwell’s Golf Links Estate hit the market with a price guide of between $9.5 million and $10.4 million.
In June, a property at 15 Victoria Road looked like it could challenge the record with an upper end price guide of more than $8 million (which was shortly thereafter revised down).
