Marshall White’s Kate Strickland said three families bid more than 100 times on the property and were attracted to the open floorplan and pool.
“They were all younger groups, wanting to get into the area for schools and the train station,” she said.
“The vendors are moving to Queensland and are absolutely stoked with the result.”

The buyer was a late entry to the bidding race, raising their hand just seconds before the property was about to be sold, she added.
“The third party came in with a $1000 bid, and fought it out for a while with the underbidder before securing the keys,” Ms Strickland said.
In Sandringham, another entertainer with a sparkling pool finished with a strong result after competitive bidding.
The outdoor entertaining area was a major drawcard.
It sold for $2.78 million.
Buxton’s Richard Slade said it only took a couple of minutes to secure a sale for 41 Bamfield St for $2.78 million after it passed in.
“Two local families controlled the bidding, which started at $2.5 million and finished at $2.76 million when it passed in,” he said.

An extra $20,000 was all it took to get the sale over the line in private negotiations.
