The chance to buy in one of Australia's most iconic seaside suburbs was just too good an opportunity to pass up for one weekend buyer.
A vacant block of land close to the Brighton seafront in Melbourne fetched a staggering $3,160,000 on the weekend.
Listing agent Nick Johnstone advised prospective buyers to "ring your builder and put your mark on Brighton's best development opportunity".
Sydney also produced some big numbers and secured yet another $5 million sale to take the title of most expensive auction result last weekend. The property in question? A six-bedroom, four-bathroom federation home in harbourside Mosman.
Described as "a generous family home of rare distinction" by listing agency Simeon Manners, the home has been restored to preserve its "original beauty, history and architectural integrity".
The 901-square-metre grounds feature a swimming pool and children's play equipment.
The home sold for $5,375,000.
