Blairgowrie has a new record house price – set four years after the last.
The recently constructed and uber contemporary Made Build home at 16 Ritchie Avenue is understood to have sold for more than $4.4 million, but this could not be confirmed.
The dwelling is a couple of hundred metres from 44 Knox Road which became the region’s highest deal when it traded for $3.95m.
Both properties are waterfront – between Fowlers and Pearses beaches – and sit on sand dunes within Pirates Bay National Park.
The latter occupies 5700 square metres of land – six times more than 16 Ritchie Avenue – and included a tennis court.
Sotheby’s Rob Curtain and Daniel Vains were the agents on the two campaigns (story continues below).
Blairgowrie’s priciest home: 16 Ritchie Avenue
The dwelling was constructed on a sloping block which cost $980,000 in 2016.
The purchasers then paid to sink overhead powerlines across the street – and remove an imposing electricity pole previously beside their driveway.
Local architect Planned Living was then called in to pen a design with upstairs and downstairs living rooms and an elevator.
With five bedrooms and a feature staircase, too, the home is entered via a grand entrance with an eight metre ceiling.
The backyard contains an alfresco entertaining zone, infinity pool, spa and flat rolling lawn.
