Mega mansions in Toorak, Brighton and even Mickleham were some of our most popular homes last year. But some – including an elaborate European-style mansion – are still on the hunt for buyers.
A sprawling $ 15million Mickleham mansion and extravagant Clayton South pad compared to castles in Netflix period drama Bridgerton were among the homes to go viral in 2021 – but the two are still on the hunt for buyers for the news year.
The imposing promoter of music Michael Coppel Hopetoun Road, Toorak, mansion, which sold over $ 30 million in October, was Victoria’s most viewed residence in 2021, with over 98,000 people viewing it on realestate.com.au.
The luxurious features of the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home included a nine-car basement garage, wine cellar, and full-size tennis court.
Marshall White Stonnington manager Marcus Chiminello previously told the Herald Sun that a wealthy local family had taken over the “historic residence”.
It was followed by the Nine bedroom, 1.7 ha estate in Mickleham, which racked up 88,289 views after being listed on Jan.29.
The elaborate 10 Summit Route The residence has a dramatic lobby and staircase inspired by the iconic film Gone with the Wind, a soccer field and playground set amidst substantial gardens, as well as a 200-seat ballroom that sellers had used it to entertain family, friends and customers – and shoot a music video.
But it’s still waiting for its next depository, with price hopes of $ 14 million to $ 15.4 million.
We had the interest of China to make it a retirement home and a luxury hotel, ”Iconek Real Estate CEO Alen Hewson previously told the Herald Sun.
“We basically had one buyer interested in living on the property, everything else was for business purposes.”
Mansions linked to famous faces have also attracted many glances online in 2021, including one Toorak record list bought by Chemist Warehouse boss Sam Gance for around $ 43 million in October.
The five bedrooms Owned by Lansell Road looks like a five-star hotel, with seven living spaces, three kitchens, a teppanyaki grill, a tennis court, and an on-site “wellness retreat”. The impressive list attracted over 68,000 clicks to realestate.com.au.
The founder of Boost Juice, Janine Allis Fairhaven waterfront pad – who appeared in the 1979 movie Mad Max – had already racked up 61,657 views finally sold for $ 10 million in November, after being listed twice last year.
Meanwhile in Clayton South, an elaborate residence that wouldn’t look out of place on the hit television show Bridgerton was another of Victoria’s most viewed homes.
The property, with eye-catching golden decor, was constructed from onyx, marble, granite, and sandstone and bears a certain resemblance to the grand mansions of Europe.
A lavish design characterized by tall columns, chandeliers, intricate cornices, and manicured hedges helped the six-bedroom home go viral with 66,351 views.
But the 8 Scott Avenue real estate remains on the market after being listed in January.
If it hits its price range of $ 3.6 to $ 3.96 million, it would be crowned the most expensive residence in the Southeastern suburbs.
Noel Jones Balwyn’s agent Dean Sun said the sellers created the house over a six-year span, inspired by “their favorite designs from overseas.”
“We have had a few offers, but so far it has not lived up to their expectations,” said Mr. Sun.
Several other multi-million dollar dream homes were on the list, as buyers and stickybeaks couldn’t resist a peek inside Victoria’s most luxurious residences.
Among them was a Six-bedroom resort inspired by the Hamptons which sold for around $ 9 million to Blairgowrie, a $ 9.7 million Brighton pad with an underground disco, and another amazing $ 16.9million house in same bay suburb with its own bowling alley and gold-class cinema.
