7 Hambledon Road, HAWTHORN

BOUGHT* - $3,300,000
Auctioneer Antony Woodley completes his preamble, allowing for a gent to pipe up, ‘I would like to point out that Scotch College owns 50 percent of the homes in the street’. A crowd member responds with words to the effect of ‘We know. We saw you put up your signs at 5.30pm last night’. Mr Woodley sensibly sought to move on from the niggle and searched for an opening bid. Bidder 1 offered $2,000,000 and this was immediately rejected by Mr Woodley as he placed a vendor bid of $2,900,000, ‘Let’s not waste time, $2.9. You paid $3.2 for the last one, you won’t be getting it for less than that I can tell you!’. Bidder 1 enters with $2,920,000 and there is a vendor referral. Bidders 2 and 3 pop up - all actual bidders are family buyers. The property passes in to Bidder 1 for $2,975,000 and many linger for sometime afterwards (neighbours, underbidders and non-bidders) with a resolution still to be reached.
