Comments on 11 Ross Street KEW

Ross has always been regarded as a better than average street for the prices it gets, especially for those wanting a new build site - however, this has left the streetscape is a little mixed (as evidenced by neighbours either side) and it does carry additional traffic on the way through to somewhere.

I remember last going to 11 to see an auction in the middle of the GFC 2008 and things not happening on the day, which surprised me - however, it did sell a few weeks later for a tad under $2,900,000. Last year this was a $5million home, but with the negative market events of May, the quote seems about right for a seller that wants to sell and a buyer who wants to buy.

The home, in my opinion, is best described as a very high quality renovated period home without being a classic.

You can see where the renovations join the older parts internally and externally - the building team have been both sympathetic to the old in attention to detail on restoring period features and the new in terms of good spacials/proportions, flow and additional offerings - such as effectively 3 ensuites (one shared) for the four bedrooms, a very high quality rear living space (cosmetic update on the kitchen line ball?) additional living areas/study well placed and some high quality and now established landscaping.

And while out the back through a well landscaped garden lets talk about "the blokes" - gym set up (c'mon buddy get back into shape), really big underground cellar, that's why you need the gym and a car lover's garaging with room for three cars and more - here is a link to the video I took checking out rear access which is excellent

And so that's the home front to back - being picky whilst all on a single level it's not really - due to block slope upwards from front to back, the least problematic of slopes. The builders put in two smaller sets of steps - no doubt a better alternative than one big lot. Personally, I think it has been down well with minimum visual and flow impact and in some ways, all it does is indicate different sections of this home.

11 Ross Street is a very high-quality home from so many angles and even in this market should go relatively well if they are in an around the indicative quote.

Comments in 2008: The extension was done about three years ago according to the agent. Everything is super high quality, feel is great, car access from front and rear a rare bonus. Garage is a carport (not a garage in the truest sense), but this could be easily changed. Very classy family residence. Bought after auction at 2,820,000 October 2008

What our clients had to say about James

Overseas buyer - we think that we probably ended up paying less and, moreover, we feel better about the whole thing. .
