A four-bedroom home in Hoppers Crossing has made its owners multi-millionaires after selling for $2.35m at its midweek auction.
The 6078sq m home at 19 Kingston Blvd went under the hammer on Tuesday evening — selling for a huge $100,000 above its $2.25m reserve, with the vendors only paying $100,000 for the property in 1997, according to CoreLogic.
Bidding kicked off at $2m, before rising in $50,000 increments to reach the $2.2m mark.
It then took off in $25,000 rises before the winning $2.35m bid was placed by a local family.
Three bidders vied for the keys.
Ray White Werribee director and auctioneer Robert Krnjeta said the family loved that it was an owner-built home.
“A lot of people look for that country lifestyle but in the city,” Mr Krnjeta said.
“They liked that it had an acerage.”
The agent added that the vendors initially moved from Sydney more than 20 years ago and raised their children at the property.
“It was one of those quick (auctions), but very emotional,” he said.
The new buyers were attracted to the home for its expansive land size, with room for up to six cars to park.
It’s also perfect for families, with two living areas and a separate rumpus room — the latter showed in listing photos with a bar and pool table.
The main bedroom is fitted with a spacious walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with luxury spa bath.
Natural light floods the kitchen, which overlooks the undercover alfresco dining space.
“Those higher end properties in the west go quicker,” Mr Krnjeta said.
The new owners also loved the home’s proximity to local schools and nearby shops.
