Private botanic gardens sets record

Ray White Balwyn agents Helen Yan and Fraser Wu have just sold a prestige property for a suburb record in North Balwyn.

Ms Yan sold the five bedroom opulent masterpiece at 53 Cascade St, North Balwyn prior to auction, and in only it’s the second week on the market with Ray White.

Ray White Balwyn director Helen Yan said this 4080sq m block was “arguably the largest private land holding in Balwyn North”.

“This is like an idyllic one acre oasis. It’s perfect, with a lavish five bedroom plus study residence,” Ms Yan said.

“The east side boundary is set on Cascade Park so the property feels not just like a home, but also like a holiday resort.

“It’s like having your own botanic gardens in your backyard. It makes people feel happy living there,” said Ms Yan, truly one of Australia’s highest performing real estate professionals.

There had been six opens and a few interested buyers, however only one serious offer so the property sold prior auction.

“The owners are extremely happy as they have a very strong bond with the property, The owner told us that the previous agents couldn’t sell the property for a much lower price back then, so we’ve done a great job in achieving a strong price for her, which she believes that this property is worth it,” Ms Yan said.

“All neighbours were happy about our performance as well, a lot of the neighbours have been living in this street for a long period of time.”

Ms Yan was crowned the number one agent in the 2016 Top 50 women in real estate rankings, and just been rewarded No.18 in REB’s top 100 agent’s around Australia in 2017.
