26 Olola Ave, Vaucluse, with a price guide of $16.5m to $17.3m, has good interest.
VAUCLUSE is a hotbed of mid-spring prestige activity this week, with a $25 million sale in Carrara Rd; good interest in a $16.5 million home in Olola Ave and the re-listing of a luxury home in Wentworth Rd seeking $33 million.
There are no pictures available of 12 Carrara Rd due to it being an off-market sale that’s understood to have occurred late in the week through D’Leanne Lewis, of Laing+Simmons Double Bay. She wasn’t available for comment.
