Vive la France! Record-Breaking $6,000,000 Brighton Sale

By Merv Barrett

A stunning French provincial style home in south-east Melbourne has sold for a whopping $6,000,000, showing that Victoria’s high-end real estate market is alive and kicking despite the recent surge in coronavirus cases.

The palatial property, at 26 Dendy Street, Brighton, is a newly built five-bedroom home which displays elegance and grandeur on an unrivalled scale.

OzHomeNews spoke to Zed Nasheet, of Zed Real Estate – the agency who successfully ‘zold’ the fantastic residence.

“It’s a brand-new French provincial home, with a 735 sqm block size, nobody has lived in it yet, it was finished at the end of last year,” said Mr Nasheet.

The sale price achieved was a suburb record for 2020, with Mr Nasheet praising his team’s effort to secure the deal.

“It was a hard negotiation, it was listed on the market with a local agent, but Claudia Michaels of Zed real estate achieved a sale of $6,000,000 cash!”

“The sale price achieved is the highest sale price of 2020 for the suburb of Brighton,” said Mr Nasheet.

“$6 million, bam, day and night hard work and persistence and we got the job done.”

The property is a truly unique build, and located just a short walk from the ocean, it is clear to see why it transacted for such a high price point.

“It’s probably one of the only French provincial homes of that style in Melbourne,” said Mr Nasheet. “It’s 12 doors down from the water and it’s around 70 squares under roofline.

“I love the backshot of the house – the money shot. The arches at the back of the house and the swimming pool is just amazing,” he said.

The vendor was a local investor who built the house, before selling to the Victorian based buyers last week, who are the first people lucky enough to call the property home.

It is a strong indication that, despite the recent lockdown, Melbourne’s top end of its real estate market is still in a strong position.

“The reason why this is so important is because it happened during COVID, that’s why it’s interesting,” said Mr Nasheet.

“COVID-19 or no COVID-19, nothing stops Zed Real Estate from achieving high prices.”
