There were eight registered bidders for the single-level brick-and-tile home on 697sqm and five bidders ended up strongly competing for the property.
Momentum built from the $300,000 opening bid to when it sold under the hammer for $440,000.
The successful new owner had been renovating a property in the same street and was looking for a new property to renovate and live in with her partner.
The house has great solid bones but was aching for a makeover inside and out, so it will provide a great blank canvas for the couple to bring to life.
The home rests on an elevated hilltop block in a great part of Padbury next to a park and close to all the waterfront and lifestyle activities in neighbouring Hillarys and Sorrento.
