Jason Scillio, a former director of prestige residential real estate agency Kay & Burton, is hoping to break the $17 million price record for a Flinders home.
The businessman has listed his 20.2 hectare estate at 160 Musk Creek Road via Sotheby’s Rob Curtain.
Unusually, the home and five others share a 55 hectare native bush property.
An online advertisement for Mr Scillio’s landmark home hasn’t yet been uploaded – but the listing has been a hit on Mr Curtain’s Instagram, where a post this week yielded several hundred reactions within hours.
A single-level main dwelling with five bedrooms and four bathrooms captures rural and bay views, to Phillip Island.
“No expense has been spared in creating this private family home with future generations in mind, offering all the innovative trimmings expected in one of the finest homes on the Mornington Peninsula,” Mr Curtain said.
The holding also includes a bore feed dam, tiled self-cleaning negative edge pool and spa, “endless” water capacity, extensive garden irrigation infrastructure, stock yards and two barns meaning any incoming owner could consider keeping horses, like many of the neighbours.
Mr Curtain is not quoting 160 Musk Creek Road with a
price guide, however it is expected to challenge the
record set in 2017 when Good Guys boss Andrew Muir paid Daniel and Danielle
Besen $17 million for Miramar – which occupies 29.5 hectares.
Miramar was also sold by Mr Curtain.
Incredibly, Mr Muir is undertaking a multi-million dollar
renovation of the near new and dramatic curvaceous mansion the Besens had only
recently finished building, on the Flinders block.
Elsewhere on the Mornington Peninsula, we reported last month about a new price record set for Blairgowrie, when 1-3 Head Street traded for in excess of $3 million.
Last week we reported about a Portsea clifftop house selling in four days. Offered by Zenith Interiors founder John Fisher and his wife, Jenny, the property at 3684-3686 Point Nepean Road carried price hopes of between $20-$22 million.
