If you are a househunter, looking for resort-style living at its finest, then you probably already have 56 Walkers Rd, Somerton Park on your radar.
Built by award-winning Broadway Building Co as a custom, re-imagined mid-century entertainer for family living, the home saw an unprecedented number of people walk through its front door over the weekend.
According to selling agent Anton Williams of Ray White Glenelg, who is presenting the home to market along with Jordan McMahon, as many as 166 groups viewed the home over the last two days.
“The property has garnered a huge amount of interest among buyers who came in for the open over the weekend,” Mr Williams said.
“A number of factors are driving the interest. Apart from a strong marketing campaign, it’s the uniqueness of the property and of course, the prestigious location,” he said.
The home sits on a 1006sqm allotment and has five bedrooms – the master suite complete with a luxe ensuite. An open-plan kitchen, dining and living room sits at the home’s rear and opens to the side to a glamorous patio with a fire pit that flows to an outdoor entertainment area; and to the pool area at the rear.
Large windows flood the home with light, and a two-car carport sits at the front of the home, with the driveway providing handy off-street parking space for additional vehicles. The landscaped gardens are also a highlight.
The home has attracted strong interest from the moment it hit the market, not just from local buyers but those from interstate and overseas as well.
“It’s a full demographic mix of local and interstate buyers – from both small and large families to young couples to middle-aged couples as well. We have a few overseas buyers as well who have shown interest in the home,” Mr Williams said.
According to REA data, the median house price in Somerton Park currently sits at $1,225,000, up by 23.3 per cent in the past 12 months. Homes in the suburb have recorded a median of 25 days on the market.
The home is set to go to auction on August 27 at 2.30pm.
