Mid-century Herne Hill house a good fit for family
THE solid bones of mid-century brick houses in Herne Hill continue to find favour with buyers.
The popularity of the suburb’s original stock was again underlined with the sale of 17 Wirksworth St before auction.
Buxton agent Tony Moorfoot said the neat three-bedroom house on a 539sq m block sold for $540,000.

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.
Herne Hill’s median house price has risen 2.4 per cent in the past three months to $550,000, according to CoreLogic.
That takes its capital growth over the past year to 13.4 per cent.
