Essendon's Enderby secures record price

Enderby, a landmark 1903 home in Essendon, has sold after hitting the market in February.

It had $5.5 million to $6.05 million price hopes.

Enderby (above and below), located at 1 Riverview Road, was sold by Joe Zucco from McDonald Upton.

Its top seller status is quickly under threat as another home hits the market in the Melbourne suburb with expectations of up to $8.5 million (pictured below).

Enderby is a 1400sqm property with five bedroom home set in landscaped gardens by designer Michael La Fontaine.

The property last changed hands in 1989 for $945,000.

The suburb's prior top price was $4.53 million set only last year by the neighbouring 3 Riverview Road.

Enderby’s competition for the new Essendon benchmark is 41 Leslie Road (below) — a 1930s Tudor-style residence on the market with a $7.775 million to $8.5 million price guide through McDonald Upton.

The six-bedroom mansion sits on a 2168sq m block with a floodlit tennis court and pool which listing agent Simon Cookson said was heritage-protected.

The house (below) was designed by architect C Stewart Russell for a former Essendon mayor.

It last sold 18 years ago at $1.8 million.

Elsewhere in Essendon, the home of gangland matriarch Roberta Williams is set to be sold.
