An exclusive South Coast home has sold for an eye-watering $10 million under the virtual hammer - more than doubling the previous record for the suburb.
The home, located at 15 Shipton Crescent, Mollymooksold at online auction Friday night after 39 days on the market.
Selling agent, Ben Pryde from Raine and Horne Mollymook/Milton confirmed the $10 million sale price, but declined to disclose any details about the buyer.
He said there were 13 registered bidders, and "very spirited" bidding took place.
"Up to around the mid-$8 million mark there were still three bidders in it, and then it came down to the last two right through to hit the $10 million mark," Mr Pryde said.
The home, listed with a price guide of $6.5 million, last sold in 2016 for $2.36 million according to CoreLogic records.
Mr Pryde said bidders who participated included "ex-pats, Sydney-siders, people from out west, interstate".
"There were plenty of big players involved," he said.
Set on 1164 square metres, the home is located on the southern side of Mollymook and backs on to Colliers Beach.
The original four-bedroom house was featured in Home Beautiful magazine in the '90s. It was extensively renovated in 2008.
Mr Pryde recently told the Mercury that the seller had largely left the home intact, making minor improvements.
He said the gains made on the property in the ensuing five years were indicative of the "hotly contested" Mollymook market.
