Auc­tion reaps $1m re­ward


A FOUR-bed­room Hen­dra res­i­dence, dat­ing back to 1920, has sold for more than $1 mil­lion at auc­tion.

The two-level prop­erty at 101 Mein St was mar­keted by Linda By­wa­ter from Har­courts As­cot.

The on-site auc­tion at­tracted 50 peo­ple with three reg­is­tered bid­ders.

Auc­tion­eer Ben Brady took an open­ing bid of $900,000 from the floor with a Tener­iffe fam­ily, who in­tend to live in the prop­erty, be­ing the suc­cess­ful bid­ders at $1.18 mil­lion.

The prop­erty has been raised and ren­o­vated and also fea­tures four bath­rooms and park­ing for two cars.

The res­i­dence has clas­sic fea­tures and a mod­ern de­sign.

Set on 539sq•m and of­fer­ing a leafy green out­look, the house has a sleek in­te­gra­tion be­tween in­door and out­door liv­ing ar­eas.

Qual­ity char­ac­ter fea­tures are dom­i­nant through­out the de­sign, in­clud­ing a com­bi­na­tion of black­butt and orig­i­nal hard­wood tim­ber floors, neu­tral tones and white plan­ta­tion shut­ters.

Be­yond a white picket fence, a path­way flows through the gar­dens to a pa­tio be­neath the front wrap­around veranda.
