An opulent West Pennant Hills home with championship tennis court, swimming pool and indoor theatre has sold for $4.5m – the second highest residential price to be recorded in the suburb.
The six-bedroom residence at 17 Hoop Pine Place had attracted the eye of buyers from the North Shore during its marketing campaign, but it was a local family who made the successful final offer.
“There is definitely a market for this type of property,” said agent Jennifer Carr from Louis Carr Real Estate.
“While this is a beautiful home it didn’t suit every buyer’s particular needs – so there is definitely a leftover audience, I wouldn’t mind another one to sell.”
The glamorous triple level residence, built by Kassis Homes, is located on the high side of an exclusive cul-de-sac. It is set on a massive 2010 sqm block and is just a 10-minute walk to Cherrybrook Metro station.
Among the property’s resort-style features is a poolside cabana with an amazing outdoor kitchen, including a gas cooktop and dishwasher.
There is a mosaic tiled saltwater heated swimming pool and a full sized championship tennis court with a fixed basketball ring.
The residence has been luxuriously decorated with plush carpets in purple, detailed high ceilings and cornices, plus a beautiful staircase with wrought iron detailing.
Other lifestyle features include a purpose-built tiered cinema room with reclining seats and a billiard room.
The home’s lavish parents retreat has a spa-like ensuite, private balcony and two separate walk-in wardrobes.
According to CoreLogic RP Data, the sale price is the second highest residential sale recorded in West Pennant Hills. The most expensive home in the suburb is 44 Glenhope Rd, which sold for $5m in March 2016.
The sale price is also a record for Hoop Pine Place, beating the previous record of $4.1m paid in May 2010.
A large number of luxury homes in West Pennant Hills have been sold as development sites for multimillion-dollar prices over the past six years due to proximity to Sydney Metro Northwest. These have been mostly purchased by Kirby Projects.
