In the midst of a lockdown in Queensland, a home in Tarragindi has set a new record at a weekend auction after selling for $3.125 million.
The house on Tarragindi Street is the first property to break the $3 million mark in this South Brisbane suburb on a day that has been one of the strongest auction days of the year. Eight online bidders had their eye on the house before it sold on 7 Aug 2021, as parts of Queensland were on its 8th day of another lockdown.
Ideally suited for a growing family who loves to entertain, the Tarragindi house offers relaxed outdoor living with its expansive backyard, featured with a heated pool and heaps of space for dining and barbeque.
To the center of the house is a gourmet kitchen that’s meant to become the gathering point among families and friends. The home’s architecture is an impressive three-level concrete building with titanium zinc and cedar cladding. It has an easy outdoor flow that faces a gorgeous view of Brisbane.
Inside, the living area has an Italian tiled gas fireplace and custom-built cabinets. A lift brings the family to the second floor, which has a balcony for lounging and entertaining. The home also has its own media room, gym, and a guest bedroom with a separate entry.
Place Estate Agents managing director Paul Curtain revealed that there had been some apprehension in the market because of the new COVID-19 outbreaks.
However, the response from the market remained strong despite the lockdown as most of the properties during the auction closed within or above the reserve price. Mr Curtain said that property experts don’t see the market changing amidst the restrictions as private inspection could be arranged.
