The auctions of two neighbouring Hawthorn East homes were in Melbourne’s top three most expensive sales last week.

The luxury four-bedroom houses across the road from each other on Leura Grove together sold for in excess of $8 million.

No. 46 sold for $4.15 million.

It was Melbourne’s highest recorded sale price for the week.

In top spot was 46 Leura Grove, Hawthorn East, which sold for $4.15 million under the hammer in a twilight Thursday auction.

The home, which was designed by award-winning interior designer Fiona Lynch, had three bidders compete for the keys.

Kay & Burton Hawthorn partner Tim Picken said a local Chinese buyer plans to move from Docklands into the impressive abode.

“It was a good, modern and interesting design,” Mr Picken said.

“The buyer was attracted to the position, land size and contemporary design and style.”

Three bidders vied for the keys of the four-bedroom home.

The home featured curved edges, a Carrara marble kitchen, a loungeroom with two-way Cheminees Philippe fireplace and a backyard oasis with a large deck, fish pond and pool.

Mr Picken said the exclusive, tree-lined street offered grand, modern homes and was popular as it was near quality schools and had high land value.

53 Leura Grove, Hawthorn East, notched Melbourne’s third highest sale price last week.

It sold under the hammer for $3.92 million.

Across the street No. 53 sold for $3.92 at auction on Saturday to a young family from Melbourne’s southeast suburbs.

The two-year-old, two-level home with an infinity pool, impressive outdoor kitchen and contemporary interiors had five bidders vie for the keys.

“It sold under good competition with multiple bidders which is against the grain of what we have been experiencing in recent times,” Marshall White Boroondara agent Stuart Evans said.

“It’s a beautiful home on the north side of the street and was immaculately presented.”

A young family won the keys.

The highest priced notched on Leura Grove to date was the $6.65 million sale of a six-bedroom house at No. 79 in 2017, according to CoreLogic data.

Melbourne’s other top sales last week went to a four-bedroom home at 11 Wheatland Rd, Malvern, which sold for $4.01 million and the $3.64 million sale of a family home at 31 Berkeley St, Hawthorn.

The $3.435 million sale of 22 Clarke St, Prahran, also made the list.
