Annandale house sells for more than $3 million
In Annandale, a renovated five-bedroom house at 190 Nelson St sold at auction for $3.2 million.
Three buyers registered to bid on the renovated cottage, with bidding opening at $2.8 million.
The auctioneer then placed a vendor bid of $3 million and from there, buyers battled for the home until the hammer fell.
The result was on par with the $2.9 million to $3.2 million guide.
It also surpassed the street record of $2.95 million set at a four-bedroom house at 83 Nelson St in September 2014.
Agent Ian Dawson, of Callaghers Estate Agents, saw through 147 groups and issued nine contracts.
“We were seeing mainly families looking for a forever home they could move straight into,” Mr Dawson said.
WATERFRONT VIEWS A WINNER
AN apartment located at 15/106 Lower St Georges Crescent, Drummoyne, fetched $1.12 million at auction.
It attracted six registered bidders, with four actively pushing the price from the opening bid of $900,000 to the final result that was $20,000 above the reserve.
The sale price was also about $200,000 above Drummoyne’s median apartment price of $904,000.

The sellers were retirees that had bought the two-bedroom apartment in 1976 for $46,000.
It was one of 24 units in a waterfront block that had views stretching from North Sydney to the Harbour Bridge.
