Belle Property leasing agent Stefan Joannides said the property had never been lived in and had a few features that were unique to the rental market, including the lift and pool.

“Given the current circumstances with the virus, it is really impacting the high-end market but we have had quite strong inquiry given how special it is,” he said.

“The finishes are high quality with marble benchtops, stainless-steel appliances, polished concrete and floor-to-ceiling windows.”

Mr Joannides said the were two main groups of renters who were interested in leasing high-end homes, including rentvestors and internationals.

“Some people like to buy in more affordable areas and then rent in the area they want to live in,” he said.

“A lot of people that pay that sort of money are from overseas and their companies have given them a (rent) allowance.”
