Property sales records continue to be smashed across Canberra, with a 1980s brick and tile home selling for $1.26 million – a new record price for Wanniassa.

The architecturally designed four bedroom, two bathroom home at 56 Maltby Court in Wanniassa attracted a “phenomenal response”, according to listing agent Alysia Walsh from VERV Property.

“We have seen 144 groups through the home in the space of 2.5 weeks,” she said.

Ms Walsh said she received three “impressive” pre-auction offers, all over $1.1 million.

“The accepted offer was a huge $1.26 million, which I was informed has broken the suburb record!” she said.

The completely renovated residence situated on a large 1274 square metre block with established gardens and backing onto parkland sold on 5 May.

Ms Walsh said more families were looking to Wanniassa, with increased interest in the area during the recent housing boom.

“Wanniassa is such a beautiful and highly sought-after suburb, so while the interest received is somewhat overwhelming, it is not at all surprising,” she said.

“We are seeing families chasing their next family home in the area as this market is forcing them from the more costly suburbs such as Farrar and Isaacs.”

The record-breaking family home, tucked away in a quiet street, is surrounded by spectacular established gardens cultivated over 20 years, creating a sense of absolute privacy and delight, providing lush garden views from every room.

The spectacularly designed and updated home also features vaulted ceilings and light-filled living spaces with beautiful timber flooring and windows throughout.

VERV Property is making waves across Canberra, having broken two suburb records in two weeks.

The record for Sutton was also smashed when VERV sold a four-bedroom homestead on 16 hectares at 57 Vaughan Drive in Sutton for $4.75 million on 22 April.

My brother-in-law is in Wanniassa and the views blow me away from the back deck. There's some sensational houses up in Wanniassa Hills it's a real hidden gem of an area. Sounds like the cat is out of the bag.

It does look like a really beautiful house, but it's Wannissa, it's not like it has beach views or even a pool, far out.

    Kirsty Noad did have a pool originally! Pool gate still there. Definitely high for wanniassa though.

The government has to release more land not make it easier to raid your super. This only makes for more cashed up buyers and inflates prices.
