The price guide had been $490,000 to $530,000.

“A family bought that one,” Mr Moorfoot said.

“We had some good interest throughout the campaign.”

The enclosed backyard with a rustic outdoor entertainment area was a drawcard for the family market.

Mr Moorfoot said there was scope for a modern renovation to further boost the property’s appeal.
