Tassie’s latest addition to the $2m-plus club, No.12 Glover Drive in Sandy Bay. Sold by Charlotte Peterswald for Property.

SOME property sales feel like they were meant to be, and that was the case with Hobart’s most recent $2 million-plus sale.

A New South Wales resident is the new owner of No.12 Glover Drive in Sandy Bay.

She inspected the property when it was on the market last year, and at the time it seemed highly likely that she would buy.

But then life got in the way and her focus had to shift. And yet she could not let this cutting-edge home go completely.

Charlotte Peterswald for Property agent Harry Coomer said the spectacular contemporary home had clearly made a great impression with the buyer.

“She reached out again recently, even though the property was off the market at the time,” he said.

“It had stuck with her for a year — it made a real impression.

“And after all that time, when she started housing-hunting in Hobart again, she couldn’t shake the idea of buying this home.”

At $2.015 million, 12 Glover Drive has set a record price for its street.

CoreLogic figures show 12 Glover Drive is Sandy Bay’s third-highest sale of the year to date.

It was one of five Tasmanian homes to join the $1 million-plus club in June.

Alongside Glover Drive, two more

$1 million-plus homes were located in Sandy Bay, one in West Hobart and another at Lindisfarne on the Eastern Shore.

In Sandy Bay, historic 11 Fitzroy Place fetched $1.24 million, while 31 Aotea Road sold for $1.425 million.

On the water at Lindisfarne, 3 Koomela Street went for $1.025 million, and in West Hobart 12 Fielding Drive changed hands for $1.55 million.

Through the first six months of the year there are more than 55 Tasmanian homes listed on as having sold for more than $1 million.

Most of these sales were under the $2 million mark, and a handful do not have their final sale figure displayed.

And no doubt there are a few more on top of these figures where the owners have kept a lower profile.

Real Estate Institute of Tasmania figures show that last year the state recorded 181 sales in excess of $1 million.

That was a record year for the state, eclipsing the previous record-setting year by 13 sales.
