Wait until you see what lays behind the Federation facade of 64 Harold St, Middle Park.
Behind the unassuming Federation facade of this Middle Park home lies an architectural masterpiece that comes with an eye-watering $7.5-$8 million price tag. Once a dated property, 64 Harold St has had a million-dollar makeover to transform it into a contemporary sanctuary.
CoreLogic data shows the property changed hands for $3.5 million in 2014.
The records also reveal development permits valued at over $1 million were submitted for an extension, alteration and pool in 2015.

The design by Coy Yiontis Architects features a media room, open-plan living and dining room anchored by a kitchen, and a sunny internal courtyard with a pool.
Cayzer Albert Park director Michael Szulc said the four-bedroom home was “finished perfectly”.
“The craftsmanship and attention to detail is precise and first class,” Mr Szulc said.
“It’s very bespoke and beautifully balanced across the one level with a stunning internal light well and spectacular swimming pool.”
Mr Szulc said the property would attract buyers looking for a low-maintenance “lock up and leave” lifestyle in a triple-A location.
“It’s a complete rebuild, the person who buys this has got virtually a brand new home in an area with mainly old homes,” he said.
“You pay the price but live easily with everything done to a high standard.”
The kitchen and living area was a bit tired and daggy.
Despite the lofty $7.5-$8 million price hopes, the property is not in contention to be Middle Park’s priciest.
The suburb’s record of more than $11 million is being challenged by a local billionaire’s palatial pad at 223 Beaconsfield Pde with a $13.7-$15 million price tag.
The four-bedroom home has a $7.5-$8 million price guide.
The impressive Harold St property was a finalist in the 2017 Australian Interior Design Awards, as well as in the Houses Awards’ ‘house in heritage context’ and ‘house alteration and addition’ categories.
The property is listed via private sale with offers closing on December 12.
