An architectural wonder nestled next to Coburg North’s Edgars Creek could soar to a new suburb price record.
The stone and timber Tree Haus at 44 Spectrum Way will let a buyer escape to the country without even leaving the city.
The four-bedroom house, which blends perfectly into its leafy setting on the edge of Cash Reserve, is for sale with a $2.095-$2.3 million price guide.
But a buyer will have to pay more than any Coburg North buyer before for the privilege.
CoreLogic records show the four-bedroom house would shoot past the existing residential price record set by a large block at 146 Elizabeth St when it sold for $2.02 million in 2016.
Jellis Craig Brunswick agent Lisa Roberts said the pricey Spectrum Way property, which was built where the old Kodak factory once operated, was an unusual find in the industrial suburb.
“It’s the first tree change I’ve ever sold in the city,” Ms Roberts said.
“The house mimics the nature that it surrounds, including the Silurian rocks found at the reserve.”
She said tranquil vistas from huge windows in nearly every room made the house feel like it was in Daylesford or Byron Bay.
An indoor-outdoor central hallway also makes it easy to feel one with nature at the environmentally-sustainable home.
The Breathe Architecture design includes a Zen garden, outdoor fire pit and vegie garden around the house that add to the seclusion. Other unusual features includes the central bathroom, which has a sunken Japanese bathtub hidden under timber slats.
The modern kitchen has timber benchtops, Asko appliances and a butler’s pantry.
There’s a two-way fireplace to warm the dining area and the adjoined sunken lounge.
Tours by the architects are scheduled at the house on July 6, just a few weeks before the property goes under the hammer.
An auction is set for July 20.
