Bentleigh pad gifts owners $250k premium, sells under hammer for first time in 30 years

21 Eddys Grove, Bentleigh, sold under the hammer on Tuesday evening.

A four-bedroom timber home in Bentleigh sold under the hammer at its midweek auction for the first time in nearly 30 years — blitzing its reserve by $250,000.

The 21 Eddys Grove pad was initially heading to auction on Saturday, but was brought forward to Tuesday evening after a number of buyers expressed interest in making an offer.

“It’s what the buyers wanted,” Jellis Craig Bentleigh director and senior auctioneer Nick Renna said.

There are two bathrooms at the home.

Three “strong” bidders went in for the 702sq m property, with a young couple winning the keys.

“There’s a bit of a shortage of nice, family homes in the market,” Mr Renna said.

“A lot of families were interested in this one.

It was called on the market immediately after the opening $1.85m bid and quickly hiked to a huge $250,000 above reserve.

The vendors bought the dwelling nearly 30 years ago, paying just $168,000 in 1993, according to CoreLogic.

Mr Renna said it was the couple’s first home, who were now downsizing.

The stylishly renovated abode features four spacious bedrooms, two contemporary bathrooms and a light-filled kitchen fitted with Miele appliances.

Australian hardwood floorboards can be found throughout, while an undercover alfresco deck overlooks the established garden.

The agent said the property was very popular with families.

“It has a great feel about it,” the agent said.

“It’s updated but not brand new, and the floorplan was important to a lot of (buyers).”

The new buyers are expecting a baby soon and are looking forward to starting a family at the home.

It’s located just off Centre Rd and is close to local restaurants, tram and train stops and supermarkets.
