house filled with memories sells after 60 years

Written by The ReReport

This original home in Oatlands sold for $1.128 million.

THE sounds of cheering rang through an Oatlands street at the weekend, when an elderly vendor’s cherished home sold after almost 60 years.
The seller of 7 Belmore St East was on site with his three adult children and extended family as the house went to auction with six registered bidders.

Bidding from three parties and a late head-to-head battle between two of the buyers pushed the sale price beyond the reserve. The gavel fell at $1.128 million.
“When bidding reached $1 million, the elderly owner was absolutely flabbergasted — it was great,” selling agent Broderick Wright from Ray White Parramatta told the Parramatta Advertiser.

The cute kitchen is a step back in time.

Holding a glass of champagne, the vendor celebrated with his family and the new owners — a local family who bought the property as their first home.
Mr Wright said it was a heartfelt celebration for all, including the seller’s children who grew up in the home.

“The family had a running joke that they were never late to school, because the property was literally across the road from their school.”


Opposite Oatlands Public, the house is on a 714 sqm parcel of land. It has four bedrooms, a bathroom and a detached single garage.
The buyers managed to snap it up for less than the suburb’s median house price of $1.585 million.
