The apartment, located in a quiet side street in the popular suburb, has three balconies, two parking spaces and wooden floorboards.

The historic house has all the usual trimmings that make a home a home – including a quaint living and dining room – but Veronica Morgan of Good Deed Property told us NCA NewsWire the sale ‘defied logic’.

She said the ‘uniqueness’ of two car spaces and three balconies drove the price up exponentially, but indicated that the second bedroom was small and the house leaked during inspections due to torrential rains.

Mitchell Farah, founder of Real estate first handDaily Mail Australia said the country is experiencing a ‘perfect storm’ of low interest rates, changing market standards and positive buyer sentiment.

“Results like this condition that buyers see what they have to pay at the moment, but also create higher expectations for emerging sellers,” he said.

“What we hear from many owners considering selling is the fear that they might not be priced on their next purchase.”
