TWO Melbourne dream homes have been secured by buyers who were given box seats to the luxury homes during private negotiations.
An Alphington California bungalow and a dreamy chalet in Eltham both scored two of the most expensive sales in Melbourne last week.
The environmentally-conscious abode at 24 Toolangi Rd in Alphington sold for $2.25 million after passing in at auction on Saturday.

The period-style home, with a curved open-plan extension designed by architect Anthony McPhee, sold close to reserve price, Jellis Craig’s Bev Adam said.
The buyer was the only person to raise their hand at auction and negotiated a sale shortly after. Ms Adam said they already lived near the address and were looking for a fully renovated home.
The four-bedroom beauty on a 599sq m block had a price guide of $2.1-$2.2 million. The buyer paid $50,000 over that to win the keys.

Ms Adam said the home was located in a quiet and leafy part of Alphington.
“Homes north of the railway line and east of Grange Rd are in an exclusive pocket of Alphington that is highly-sought after, and they sell faster than the rest,” she said.
“It’s a quiet location and it attracts people who are sick of noisy traffic in Melbourne.”
In the northeast, a spectacular chalet finally sold for $3.05 million after 122 days on market.

It was on the market for 122 days before selling.
The striking residence at 5 Jayson Ave in Eltham sold at the bottom end of its price guide in a private sale.
Morrison Kleeman director Graham Morrison said the home attracted a lot of interest before eventually selling to an overseas buyer. They will be relocating to Australia to enjoy their luxury accommodation.
“Getting $3 million in Eltham is never easy, but there were three overseas parties and another local group that showed interest before it sold,” he said.
The home was bought by an overseas couple.
The vendor built the home three years ago.
The hotel-inspired five-bedroom property was sold by its owner, who built the house and included a pool, spa, floodlit tennis course and wood-fired pizza oven in the grounds.
It recorded the most expensive residential sale in Melbourne last week, CoreLogic data shows.
