The 617sq m property at 19 Sunset Strip sold after auction for an undisclosed price within the $789,000-$860,000 price guide.
Buxton, agent Ian Nichols said the couple used to live in the area before moving overseas.

“Now they’ve come back and wanted to be in the same area,” Mr Nichols said.
“They will do some work to the house and live in it.”
The three-bedroom house has an open-plan living area and second loungeroom that connects to a deck that has stairs down to the backyard.
There is potential to renovate the house or start again from scratch or develop, subject to council approval.
The property is close to the Bells Beach Hotel, local cafes and shops and is a five-minute walk to the beach.
