Aberfeldie showstopper to raise record by millions

An incredible riverside mansion with a garage big enough for 15 cars is poised to double the local record and raise it by millions.

An incredible Aberfeldie showstopper with a garage big enough for 15 cars is poised to double the suburb record and raise it by millions.

The schmick dream home at 140 The Boulevard is priced at $8m-$8.8m via private sale and will easily top the recent local benchmark set by 47A Clifton St.

Nelson Alexander Essendon sales manager Paul Harrison’s team sold that property for an undisclosed amount understood to have exceeded the $4.1m-$4.4m price guide.

He has the listing for 140 The Boulevard and said the six-bedroom, six-bathroom home occupied one of the best spots along the Maribyrnong River-side strip.

It’s one of only a handful with uninterrupted views to the water across the parkland.

“Aberfeldie and Essendon sort of morph into each other, most people regard them as the same or similar, and I think the record for Essendon is about $8.5m,” Mr Harrison said.

“So it’s right up there with the best homes that have ever been available in the area.”

The vendors had the property, on a rare 830sq m block, built about five years ago, with nine-car spaces in the garage — but room for up to 15 vehicles, according to Mr Harrison.

Designed by architect Marie Bagnato, the sleek and sophisticated pad features an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area with a bar and marble splashbacks.

It opens to a covered outdoor entertaining area with a kitchen of its own, and sparkling pool.

A lift connects the three levels, with the bedrooms all on the top floor — including the sumptuous main suite with its own balcony, walk-through dressing room and ensuite.

“The highlights outside the location are the effort and quality of the home,” Mr Harrison said.

“It’s a big home at 90 squares (836 sqm) and the main drawcards are certainly the quality of the fit-out, size of the block, car accommodation and the location.”
