Stunners rise to the top of Moreland property market

A three-level modern marvel in Pascoe Vale was the cream of Moreland’s property market crop this year.

It changed hands for $2.4 million, making it the area’s top reported sale in 2018.

The opulent four-bedroom home at 52 Northumberland Rd features city views and an indoor-outdoor entertainment zone with a solar-heated pool.

The outdoor area of 52 Northumberland Rd, Pascoe Vale was likened to a Gold Coast resort.

The home theatre at 52 Northumberland Rd, Pascoe Vale.

A palatial main bedroom was part of the package at 52 Northumberland Rd, Pascoe Vale.

Its showpiece kitchen, with a large butler’s pantry and European appliances, is found on the ground floor, along with a casual living area, formal lounge room with balcony and the palatial main bedroom with enormous walk-in wardrobe and luxe ensuite.

The remaining bedrooms are on the top floor, while a home theatre, cellar and entertainment room are on the lower level, with a lift connecting all three floors.

Nelson Alexander Pascoe Vale agent Sean Keogh said the April 28 auction drew a large crowd but no bidding, with the property passed in on a vendor bid.

“I think it went past a lot of other potential bidders at that stage because of the level it was at,” Mr Keogh said.

But post-auction negotiations quickly sealed the deal with a buyer from out of the area who planned to live in the home.

“It was quite an unusual home for the area,” Mr Keogh said. “It was a Spanish Mission influence, that’s what the owner called it.

“It had very large rooms, including four big bedrooms and multiple bathrooms, and a lift, so it was very different for the area.

“It was a terrific family home, like a resort. Looking out the back there you could imagine being on the Gold Coast.”

CoreLogic records show the home last sold for $845,000 in July 2010.
