Cheers echoed through a residential street in western Sydney over the weekend as young house hunters secured their first home.
The loved-up pair’s property win came at the perfect time and was an early present to themselves ahead of their pending nuptials.
One of five registered bidders at the Saturday auction, the couple competed for the house at 45 Monterey St, South Wentworthville, from the $800,000 starting bid.
They had family members there for support as they placed the winning bid of $900,000.
“They are a lovely young couple getting married in five weeks,” Starr Partners agent Terri Godfrey said.
“They were very happy because they had been looking to buy since September,” she said.
Ms Godfrey, who sold the home with colleague Matt Carpenter, said it was nice to see the property sell to owner occupiers despite having duplex potential.
On a block of about 695 sqm with a 15.2m frontage, the single-storey home has four bedrooms, a couple of living areas and bathroom which has been recently updated.
The property also has an above ground pool and a long carport leading to a lock up garage.
The buyers, currently living in the Canterbury and inner west areas, plan to move in after the wedding.
According to Ms Godfrey, the “beautifully kept home on a block that’s great for raising a family” had been held by the same owners for more than 30 years.
South Wentworthville is a tightly-held area where residents tend to stay for more than 12 years, on average.
CoreLogic data reveals the suburb, which has a median house price of $858,500, saw 79 property sales in the 12 months to February.
