Mansion on Union Street in Clayfield, Among Biggest Home Sales of 2022

In early 2022 a mystery US buyer snapped up a mansion on Union Street in Clayfield to the tune of $8.2 million, making it one of the biggest home sales that year. 

The new owner is reportedly wanting to move together with his young family from California to Australia due to the appealing safe living and working conditions.

Sold through Adcock Prestige by car enthusiast Mark Jansen on 28 January 2022, the property at 43 Union Street boasts of a championship-sized floodlit tennis court, indoor pool, spa and alfresco entertaining pavilion plus a car collectors’ showroom.

Last sold in 2015 for a cool $4.1 million, the mansion which underwent extensive renovation also features six built-in bedrooms, three of which are ensuite. The master suite has a private lounge, reading area, a large walk-in dressing room with dark wood grain joinery, a marble look tiled ensuite with skylight, dual Villeroy and Boch undermount basins set within a spotted gum vanity, and a walk-in shower, among other features.

The chef-inspired kitchen, meanwhile, contains an extensive range of Miele appliances with two full-sized ovens, a steam oven and a microwave. There’s also a stone breakfast bar servery and stainless-steel food preparation surfaces whilst behind the kitchen is a large walk-in butler’s pantry offering full-height storage with room for an additional fridge, freezer or wine fridge.

With an $8 million price tag, 43 Union Street is one of the biggest home sales of 2022. 

The property at 673 Musgrave Rd, Robertson took the crown as the highest priced of them all with a staggering sale price of $17.25 million.

Dubbed as Robertson’s “last remaining large-scale development block”, the six-bedroom brick house was sold in March 2022 to a local developer, whose name was not revealed.
