A six-bedroom house with ornamental gardens and a miniature orchard has sold for a record price in Hoppers Crossing.
The Queen Anne-inspired house at 19-21 Ashley Avenue sold for $2.25 million.
The house, about 114 square metres and on a 2300 square metre block, also features a grand formal dining room; an entertainment room with a 5.5-metre mahogany bar; an indoor pool and sauna; crystal chandeliers in all the living areas and bedrooms; and a garage which can accommodate up to four cars.
Reliance Real Estate area manager Abhi Elawadhi said it took just nine days to sell the house.
Mr Elawadhi said the previous record price for a house in Hoppers Crossing was $2.1 million – a five-bedroom residence at 771 Sayers Road, which he also sold.
Mr Elawadhi said he received multiple offers for the Ashley Avenue house.
He said the chance to market such a property did not come along very often.
“An opportunity like this is rare, as there is not really anything else like that in the area,” he said.
Mr Elawadhi said he would soon be selling a house at 382 Derrimut Road in Hoppers Crossing.
About a month ago, Mr Elawadhi’s agency also set a record house price for Tarneit, after selling a five-bedroom house at 3 Sterling Mews for $1.13 million.
