Buyers are reportedly still showing strong interest in the luxury Barrack Point home of newly installed Parramatta Eels head coach Trent Barrett.

The Mercury revealed last year that Barrett had listed the home for sale, with expectations that it could attract a record-breaking price.

Since then, the home has been listed with a price guide of $7.5 million-plus.

Speaking to the Mercury this week, selling agent, Amanda Bonnici of Ray White Shellharbour City said they were still negotiating with buyers.

“We’re still showing the property and we have interest; (interested buyers are) all from out of town,” Ms Bonnici said.

“They love the location, being on the water there.”

The price guide also remains intact.

The suburb record was smashed last year by more than $3 million, with the sale of a $6.8 million beachfront home at 41 Junction Road.

Barrett was this week named as the Eels’ interim head coach for the remainder of the 2024 season, after a horror showing so far this season that led to the sacking of long-time head coach Brad Arthur.

Barrett, a former St George Illawarra Dragons player and ex-Manly and Canterbury coach, is set to pocket an eye-watering gain if the sale of the Barrack Point home achieves its guide.

CoreLogic records reveal that the property was bought by Barrett and his wife Kylie in 2019 for $1.764 million.

It then had an older-style home on the block, with the current home built in 2022.

Shellharbour City Council DA documents show they received approval for the home with an estimated $770,000 basic construction cost in 2021.

This included $20,000 for the demolition of the existing home, $650,000 for construction, and other costs of $100,000.

The home’s features include an open-plan kitchen, dining and main living area with eye-catching views through floor-to-ceiling glass doors across the ocean and to the beach.

A separate living room features a sandstone gas fireplace and the large kitchen is built in a Shaker style.

While the beach is just footsteps away there’s a private heated pool with a glass feature wall, along with extensive entertaining areas.
