Around 50 people turned up for this auction which was situated in a nice quiet pocket of Prahran despite being close to many amenities. It was this aspect and the land content of the property that formed the major part of Phillip Kingston's preamble and was probably the main reason why no vendor bids were needed. The auction started off with a strong confident bid of $1,600,000 from an agent and it didn't take long for two more bidders to join in. Aided by the master of the tongue, Mr Kingston was in exemplary form using tantalising comments to push the bidders along. The methods proved useful as the property was knocked down at $2,050,000 which provided a fitting end to a good auction.

Homes for life. Simple yes. Easy no. Put a $million or more in your future pocket. Call James.
Just over a year ago you negotiated the purchase of our little place.. One of the units opposite ours (ie with the back courtyard backing the railway line and the crossing about 3 units up - the side you wouldn't let us buy on), which is exactly like ours, recently went on the market and sold at the first open inspection for considerably more. Thought you would like to know, and another very big thank you from the Happy Hipp...
