Large Family Home on Almost Six Acres

Harkaway Homes famed Gabled Homestead adorns this level and partly bush 5 ¾ block, tucked neatly away down a very private no-through road. Completely off-the-grid, solar power and a huge diesel generator will ensure the lights stay on, whilst giving you almost no electricity bills to worry about.

The home is an absolute classic, federation style homestead. Featuring four bedrooms with en-suite and walk-in robe to the master, multiple living options, formal dining, lounge room, rumpus and games rooms a fifth bedroom could easily be created here. There are high ceilings and downlights throughout, huge slow combustion fireplace, timber floors and plenty of natural light, afforded by the cleverly designed covered verandah, which wraps around the home ‘Queenslander’ style, with full timber deck and partially constructed balustrade.

Some minor work and TLC is required to get the dwelling up to standard, including occupation certificate but the natural bush setting, rocky ledges down to the creek and privacy is hard to beat!

Peter Hunt of Peter Hunt Real Estate sold this property without the use of traditional advertising. Peter states: “We have not one but two sale campaigns, which we go through in detail with all prospective Vendors.

“The first campaign is to market to the people we already know, from our extensive database. That’s is where this sale came from and we call it the ‘Undercover Sale’. A family known to us for several months were given a call and invited to inspect the property, as it fit their ideal property profile.

“After negotiating with the two parties and facilitating inspections with pre-purchase inspectors and the Certifier, we were able to agree on price and terms and both parties are delighted with the result we have constructed.

“It’s all about knowing your client”, adds Peter.

The Undercover Sale removes the need for lengthy sales campaigns and also significantly reduces or completely eliminates the need for any marketing costs to be incurred. “The reason marketing is charged”, adds Peter, “is simply to cover the costs imposed on Vendors from the likes of ASX listed companies such as Fairfax Media and the REA Group. If we can source the buyer from our purchasing community, then there is no marketing invoice since we haven’t physically had to incur these costs, wh8ich can be quite substantial.”

Peter Hunt Real Estate believes this is the future of marketing. If you’d like to know more about how this sale unfolded or have any questions about how to sell through Peter Hunt’s database for $NIL, then call today for an obligation-free appointment.

If you’re a purchaser not yet known to us, please contact us today and allow us to confidentially capture your profile, if you want to be the first to know about the ideal home that becomes available, before the whole world sees your ideal property, listed on-line. 02 4656 1929
