It was certainly a May Super Saturday for the vendors of 6 Myee Avenue, Strathfield, selling their European-inspired masterpiece for $2,760,000 – $260,000 over reserve.
Back to the Myee Avenue, Strathfield auction, in 2011, owner-builders Richard and Rachelle Nader purchased a small red-brick house on the 765-square-metre site for $1.3 million. In the past 12 months, they have demolished it and rebuilt an architecturally designed five-bedroom mansion.
Leaving no expense spared, everything was designer to the point that all their luxurious finishes were handcrafted and flown in from around the globe. Even the toilet has a chandelier.
The grand residence has four bathrooms, marble floors, a French-inspired kitchen, three-metre-high ceilings, a grand staircase, an in-ground pool and a detached summer house with a built-in barbecue kitchen.
The couple said they were a little unsure of how things would turn out on the day but were happy with the result.
