A palatial Mitcham property has hit the market with a multimillion-dollar price tag that could raise the bar for the suburb.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom house at 65 Alwyn St is set to go under the hammer on March 2 with a $2.2-$2.3 million price guide.
Including garage and alfresco, the house offers a vast 600sq m of floor space.
Noel Jones Mitcham director Matthew Scafidi said the property was the finest offered for sale in the suburb.
“It’s the best home that Mitcham has had to offer,” he said. “There’s not a lot on the market at this level.”
Aside from development or subdivision opportunities, the only time a single residential dwelling has topped $2 million in the suburb was the $2.098 million sale of 8 Haslemere Rd in September 2017, CoreLogic records show.
Mr Scafidi said a “best of everything” approach to the build meant the Alwyn St property’s expansive proportions were matched by meticulous attention to detail.
“In a lot of bigger homes you see all the money is spent on size and not quality, whereas here the money has really been spent on both, which is rare,” he said.
Behind the stately facade, the house opens to an entry hall with French oak floors, a guest room, study and a media room with bespoke cabinetry.
At the rear, the living and entertaining domain is anchored by an impressive kitchen complete with four Smeg ovens, a butler’s pantry and large breakfast bar. Sliding doors open to reveal a covered deck and pergola draped by an ornamental vine.
A huge main bedroom with dual walk-in wardrobes and an ensuite is upstairs, along with a retreat and three further bedrooms that feature wall-mounted televisions and their own walk-in wardrobes and ensuite. Video intercom, an alarm and a double garage are also included. The 690sq m property is close to Rangeview shops, Mitcham station, and Mount Pleasant Road Primary School, and in the Vermont Secondary College zone.
