An unassuming baby-blue weatherboard house with a spectacular extension has smashed the suburb record in Yarraville.
Seddon buyers scored the keys to 20 Corris St for $2.5 million, taking out the title of most expensive sale in the inner west suburb.
The record was previously held by 82 Stephen St, which sold for $2.38 million in 2016.
The house was extended about 10 years ago.
Period features were retained in the original part of the house.
Village Real Estate Seddon agent Huss Saad said there had been some pretty good properties since the Stephen St sale but nothing as good as Corris St.
“The buyers were renting in Seddon and are a growing family so needed something bigger,” Mr Saad said.
“The size was appealing, as was the architecturally designed and quality built house, it is an outstanding home.”
Cook in style.
The quality of the extension attracted the buyers to it.
In the end he said there were two buyers competing for the property, with both looking to upsize.
“We had a lot of people walk through but at that price range not that many people can afford it,” he said.
Mr Saad said the timeless renovation and extension was done about 10 years ago.
“It’s a builder’s own home and he sourced materials you wouldn’t expect,” he said.
“The timber features in the kitchen, bookshelves and cabinetry are blackheart sassafras that only grows in Tasmania and the Bolon vinyl flooring on the staircase is from Denmark.”
Entertain in style outside.
82 Stephen St, Yarraville held the previous suburb record.
He also added that where the original home meets with the contemporary extension it “whacks you in the face”.
Three bedrooms and a lounge room are found in the original home, while the extension is home to the open-plan living area.
Upstairs is the main bedroom retreat.
While the inside is impressive, so too is outside. A covered outdoor entertainment area has a fireplace and built-in barbecue and adjoins the inviting swimming pool.
A separate studio is found at the rear of the property.
