$2 million sale by Laing+Simmons Hornsby sets Hornsby Heights record
Laing+Simmons Hornsby has set a new record for Hornsby Heights, recording the suburb’s first ever $2 million sale.
The striking architecturally-designed five-bedroom, three-bathroom home at 4A Summerhaze Place, Hornsby Heights, was purchased by a local upsizing family who has secured one of the quiet, leafy suburb’s best residences to begin the new year.
The result eclipses the previous Hornsby Heights record of $1.92 million struck during the 2017 housing market peak.
Laing+Simmons Hornsby Principal Karen Hardy, who negotiated the sale, said the record sale is a result of intense demand and a shortage of options for buyers.
“The upper north shore market is experiencing extremely strong demand. More buyers from across Sydney are broadening their search to new areas and prioritising more space for the family, as working from home becomes the norm for many people,” Ms Hardy said.
The home itself is record-worthy.
Spanning two levels and nestled in an elevated, peaceful position with leafy outlook, 4A Summerhaze Place features stunning light-filled interiors, generous bedrooms, well-appointed bathrooms separate home office, oversized living space and downstairs teenage retreat.
Outside, there’s an oversized alfresco entertaining area overlooking the saltwater pool, as well as a vegetable garden with grey water tank. The secure, two-car plus motorcycle garage expands into a lock-up workshop area, and solar hot water and energy-efficient lighting feature throughout.
“With so few quality properties on the market, homes that do become available are invariably drawing significant interest, generating positive results for vendors,” Ms Hardy said.
“Based on the shortage of options and intense demand, we see further upward pressure on prices characterising the local market in the new year.”
