First homebuyer battle
Listing agent Guy Lorello of Raine and Horne Burwood has been selling in the area for more than 30 years and said homes on the strip attracted interest from all over Sydney.
“Very few properties like this one come on the market,” he said.
No. 15 Appian Way sold for $4.35 million.
“When a property like this comes up you get people coming from everywhere.”
It has been a very active 18 months for the Appian Way, with No. 15 selling for $4.35 million in May 2017, while No. 18 sold in March this year for $4.85 million.
Its history spans back to the start of the 20th Century, when industrialist George Hoskins purchased eight hectares of land to create an estate.
All up, 36 Federation homes were designed and built to create an appropriate setting opposite the site of Hoskins’ mansion.
