Comments on 9 Evans Road KEW

It is and it isn't.

It is unusual - not quirky and not classic - it's individual - it's for some and isn't for others.

No question on position with regards to schools and families - this is "The Kew" - this is premium - this is Sackville Ward.

The block itself is not the reason you would buy - the block is simply, what the building is on - good rear access - but it needed to be, as it is a narrow block - and therefore the rear access allows the façade.

The façade - only the third one I have seen like this and one of them I paid over $20m for - it is a beautiful, powerful, evocative façade and the plantings are truly magnificent - they go with it, like a fine wine goes with a great meal.

To the home - where the emotional action is.

Yes or no.

Ok it's got 4 beds plus a study, laundry, garage, plus a few living areas - let's get a move on from the practicalities and get to the emotions.

Flow - how did you find it - compartments with a bit of awkwardness? or a magical mystery tour of excitement?

Connection - the bedroom separation was excellent - what about the kitchen and supervision / linking / conversations?

Light and views and location of living areas - for me average in most rooms!

Mood - this home creates a mood and will do so well after the honeymoon is over - what mood does it create for you?

Is the genius in this, actually practical? For me and for some it will be - for others it wil not be.

It is and it isn't.

Value - well - how does that saying go about beauty and the beholder? If you were to add up land value and the sqm rate on an older home then you will get a value - but it probably won't be enough to buy it. Why not? Because ti if its competive, the buyer won't add up land and home value on sqm rate - the buyer will buy it because they really, really want it.

What I mean is - some will see this as less of a package than Mawson (two streets over - that sold for $4,500,000 last Saturday) and some or one or two may see this as something special, a whle lot more than that, say over $5m.

It is and it isn't.
