“There were a number of offers that exceeded (the vendors) expectations,” Mr Graham said.
“I think, based on some of the other sales in the area, that they have done very well.”
The location, in the well regarded Olympic Estate and within walking distance of Bellaire Primary School and the Porter Ave shops, was a big drawcard.
A deck is ready for outdoor entertaining.
The house has a spacious living area, separate kitchen and meals area, with a pergola, single garage and workshop outside.
“It was an affordable and relatively solid home,” Mr Graham said.
Highton’s median house price is $675,000 on the back of 11.3 per cent capital growth over the past year, CoreLogic data shows.
