A Point Cook residence with 500 sq ft of imported marble caused a stir, setting a new multi-million dollar suburban record price, adding $200,000 to the previous benchmark.
A glamorous Point Cook waterfront pad akin to ‘a five-star boutique hotel’ smashed the suburb’s record house prices with a $3.4million sale before it happened officially on the market.
The four-bedroom stunner at 41 Sanctuary Lakes South Blvd has piled $200,000 on the previous benchmark of $3.2 million set by 19 Panorama Way last year.
Sanctuary Lakes Real Estate director Fadi Saad sold both and described the new title holder as “like a boutique hotel, reminiscent of an art gallery”.

“Travertine marble imported from Italy has been used throughout the property, on all floors,” he said.
Around 500 m² of imported marble were installed inside and outside the house.
Award-winning architect Frank Marioli, also known for the famous Great Ocean Road Pole House, designed the Point Cook Residence.
The property’s kitchen with built-in bar, air fryer, commercial fridge and teppanyaki grill are on hand for entertaining, complemented by three fireplaces and a private water jetty.
The floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to the open-air terrace were “something out of a magazine.”
Mr Saad believed the sale price was a record for the entire municipality of Wyndham, also including Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Tarneit, Truganina, Wyndham Vale and Williams Landing.
He originally intended to put the property on the market with an asking price of $3.3-3.35 million, but first showed it to a buyer who had missed out on another local home.
“Buyers come from Docklands, they’re looking for that luxury prestige factor and the lifestyle factor,” he said.
“This is a family with ties to Sanctuary Lakes, they have visited the area a few times and love the whole look of the lake and the resort vibe it has to offer.”
He said the sellers, who had lived in the 634m² house for around 13 years, were moving to Melbourne’s CBD.
