Deloitte chief global marketing officer David Redhill and his wife, Amanda, look to have launched their Vaucluse home to the market just at right time to capitalise on the post-election buzz.
Pillinger principal Brad Pillinger and his colleague, Chantal Hooper, have a $3.9 million price guide for ‘Oceania’, the 1910-built five-bedroom, three-bathroom Federation home with northerly ocean views at 3 Oceanview Ave.
“Since the election we’ve seen an increase in activity,” Ms Hooper said.
“We only launched this on Wednesday and we’ve had strong interest and inquiry.”
Ms Hooper didn’t reveal the identity of the owners, though property records show the Redhills had purchased the stunning home for $2.2 million in 2005.
With their children at university, it’s understood they’re now looking to downsize.
The previous owners had added the top floor but the Redhills have also renovated the family area and the terraces out the back extensively.
The renovations have been sympathetically done in the style of its farm homestead origins to create a blend of period architecture and spacious, modern living.
The property has an impressive 15m street frontage and a level flow from front to back.
Understandably, most of the interest is coming from families looking for a decent-sized luxury home in the Vaucluse and Dover Heights area.
“It’s close to Coles and the village shops, so that’s a big plus, and it’s quite elevated so there are good views of the ocean from the top balcony,” Ms Hooper said.
