A townhouse has raised the price benchmark by $77,000 in Langwarrin after a flash sale. The 23A Maple St home lasted less than a week on the market before it changed hands for $752,000.
At the front of a subdivided block, it eclipsed the previous suburb record for a townhouse, set at $675,000 by 20 Pepperbush Cres last year.
It is spacious and features an open-plan living and dining area. “It was a cut above standard townhouses and the buyer from Bonbeach had walked past the home frequently when visiting family,” Ray White Frankston agent Callum MacPherson said.
“She always admired the home and called the day the board went up and inspected it the next day.”
There were three unconditional offers for the four-bedroom residence on 358sq m, which had a $700,000-$750,000 price guide.
The property stood out with its designer finishes, house-like spaces and position opposite parklands and walking trails.
The vendor had owned the original block for three decades before demolishing the house to build two townhouses.
“She is stoked with the price, while the new buyer will be moving closer to the grandchildren,” Mr MacPherson said.
He noted that quality listings that stood out from others tended to sell quickly and for strong prices.
Meanwhile, 135 Kananook Ave, Seaford sold even before it was advertised online. The four-bedroom weatherboard home on 817sq m attracted numerous inquiries from a buyer database, Ray White Frankston agent George Devic said.
“As we were getting it ready for marketing, we took a few existing buyers through and it had strong interest and sold within days” Mr Devic said.
Also selling quickly and prior to auction was nearby 252 Seaford Rd, with the three-bedroom house fetching $645,000 after multiple offers.
