Somerton Park real estate: The solid gold and the hidden gems

RealEstate.com.au data for the past eight years shows that median house prices in Somerton Park rose quickly from their low point in 2009 to 2010’s peak and have remained fairly steady near that level since then.

Somerton Park real estate is in high demand—almost twice as many visits were made to properties for sale there in the past year than were made to those in the state overall.

Sleek minimalist lines characterise many of the prestige Somerton Park properties that changed hands for up to $3 million over the past few years.

Lovingly maintained grand old homes also featured in the big-ticket sales along with Esplanade properties with envy-inducing ocean views.

For singles and couples, including those with empty nests, bargains can be found among older home units, in which unassuming exteriors often hide chic, modern, spacious interiors.
