UNDERSTATED luxury is the order of a day at a multimillion-dollar Torquay home that’s poised to confirm Cowrie Rd’s reputation as one of the town’s most expensive streets.
The builder’s own home at 15 Cowrie Rd has been listed with price hopes of $2.7 million to $2.9 million.
Just 300m from the beach, the two-storey weatherboard house brings an up-market Melbourne bayside vibe to the coast.
McCartney, Torquay agent Steve Menegazzo said the four-bedroom home had a signature Hamptons style that was similar to something you might buy in Brighton or Elwood.
“I’ve been down here 15 years and it is probably one of the best houses I have listed,” Mr Menegazzo said.
“It’s a builder’s own home and they have certainly put their heart and soul into it but they are relocating.”
The house is set well back in landscaped north-facing gardens which create a private haven for outdoor entertaining.
There’s three separate living rooms over two levels, including a formal lounge and open-plan kitchen, dining and living room with a feature brick open fireplace and spotted gum flooring.
Luxury touches include Caesarstone benchtops to all wet areas, 3m ceilings, Miele appliances, a built-in coffee machine and integrated double fridge.
There’s also an oversized four-car garage with a workshop and separate bathroom.
“It’s got all the bells and whistles that you would expect when you purchase something in this price range,” Mr Menegazzo said.
He said the Torquay market had rebounded strongly in the second half of the year.
“That higher end of the market for us has really taken off since the Melbourne market has picked up and clearance rates have increased,” he said.
“We are seeing a lot more interest.”
