High price for Jetty home
A JETTY home with a rich architectural past sold under the hammer at the weekend for $1.3 million dollars.
More than 80 people turned out at the Nolan Partners auction of 3 and 5 Solitary St, a vacant lot of land and a four-bedroom home designed in the 1960s by renowned architect Trevor Reddacliff.
Marketing agent and Nolan’s principal Melissa Nolan said the result was outstanding.
“We had put a lot of work into the lead-up and the marketing campaign but as an agent you are always nervous come the big day,” she said.
“We conducted a high profile campaign that attracted over 8000 views on our network of websites. As a result we saw 57 buyers inspect the property with many of these buyers having three, four and five inspections during the campaign.”
Of the more than 80 people on site at the auction, 10 were registered bidders and five actively took part in the bidding process which ended when the hammer fell at $1.3 million.
“The family were delighted with the outcome and were very appreciative and excited that the home was going to a local buyer,” Melissa said.
“The new owners intend to retain the architectural integrity of the home while modernising internally, which is great for the Jetty; it would be such a shame to lose a home such as this.”
