Place Paddington agent Sacha Hennessy said about 80 groups had inspected the property throughout the campaign and “multiple offers” had been received.

“It was a classic Queenslander but had a modern twist to the renovation and appealed to the full gamut of buyers from young couples to rent-vesters,” Ms Hennessy said.

“The luck buyers were a couple from interstate … who were predominantly looking in the area.”

The bathroom follows suit, with coloured rolled glass windows.

The 120-year-old home had been recently renovated.

Ms Hennessy said Paddington continued to perform strongly.

“It’s a very solid performer, and it is attractive to not just locals but interstate buyers because of its proximity to good schools, cafes and the city,” she said.
