Mammoth $4.1m sale equals top price
A THREE-bedroom house in Rozelle has sold for $4.1 million to equal the highest ever house sale in the suburb.
The luxury home at 90 Evans St is just 18 years old and was on the market for three weeks, with 89 groups through.
There were several strong offers received, as selling agent Thomas Skelly of Savills Gordon issued 10 contracts.
"It is very different and unusual - there is nothing else like it," he said.
"It was well ahead of its time when built."
A local family were quickest to act, viewing the home twice before submitting the winning offer.
The sale equals the record for a house in Rozelle, which was set earlier this year when a waterfront home at 23 Margaret St also sold for $4.1 million.
The top sale ever recorded in the suburb is $4.5 million, which was achieved in 2015 through the sale of a four-bedroom penthouse at Wulumay Close.
Built in 2000, the house is spread across three levels and has around 465sqm of total space.
Features include underfloor heating, three verandas and an atrium with remote controlled blades to adjust sunlight levels.
House prices in Rozelle have dropped by 2.9 per cent to April, according to CoreLogic data, making the sale even more impressive.
The last time the property changed hands was in November 1996 when it sold for $370,000.
