The place

An unfurnished five-bedroom custom house, located an eight-minute walk from Kew-Balmy Beach.

The history

The owners bought the property in 2015, then tore down an existing home and built a new one from scratch. They wrapped up construction last year. The new structure has luxurious touches like wainscotting, coffered ceilings and a mahogany front door.

Here’s the entry, with that mahogany door:

Possible deal breaker

Unless stark white walls are their thing, tenants might want to repaint. But, in a house this size, doing so might not be practical if they’re not planning to stay for long.
