It’s a pricetag that would turn a Neighbours character into an instant millionaire*.
A house at 1 Pinoak Court, Vermont South sold for $1.6m at the weekend, the first time it has changed hands in 30 years.
The expected price was $1.3m-$1.43m.
Five bidders fought it out for the keys to the home, but the buyers, a couple originally from China, had never heard of Neighbours.
“The couple saw it for the first time [on Saturday] and fell in love with the kitchen and just wanted it,” Barry Plant Mount Waverley manager Carolyn Barton told Domain.
They were also unaware they would have a camera crew filming outside their home a few days a week, but were fine when told the cameras would not be coming inside their home… as well as the location fee stipend in their pockets.
The house has been home to Jarrod ‘Toadie’ Rebecchi, Mrs Mangel, Jane Harris, Joe Mangel, Dee Bliss, Stephanie Scully, Max Hoyland, Lucas Fitzgerald, David Tanaka, Aaron Brennan amongst others.
