Popular TV and radio presenter Greg Evans and wife Sue are selling the Doncaster apartment that’s been their Perfect Match for the past six years.
Having hosted the matchmaking show on Australian screens in the ‘80s alongside Debbie Newsome and Dexter the Robot, Evans told the Sunday Herald Sun the couple fell in love with the large balcony at 801/632 Doncaster Rd when they purchased it brand new.
The property is now on the market for $860,000-$946,000.
Now a well-known marriage celebrant, Evans said he held all his wedding rehearsals on the 300sq m balcony.
Having also played host to New Year’s Eve parties and sleepovers under the stars for his daughter, Evans said the unique floorplan, with the balcony about triple the size of the two-bedroom apartment, catered for 190 people.
“I was going to build a tennis court but nobody would fetch the balls,” he joked.
“It’s like living in an apartment with a big backyard, you could have swings and slides, you could have a picnic area – I’ve left it as a blank canvas for a creative person to design something very special.”
“300sq m makes it one of the largest private balconies in Melbourne.”
Elizabeth Treonze Real Estate’s eponymous director said there was enough space to park a helicopter on the huge balcony, or host dawn yoga sessions.
She said the property would appeal most to buyers with a love of entertaining.
“The apartment itself is not very large but the minute you walk into the kitchen it blows your mind,” Ms Treonze said.
“You’ve got 180 degree views right across to the Dandenongs, the Yarra Ranges, the city.”
