An unremarkable three bedroom house in Mt Roskill (pictured) sold for just shy of $1 million at this week’s Bayleys Auctions.

The 1940s-era weatherboard home, which had two bathrooms and a single garage, was on a cross-leased section, which gave it a half share of 827 square metres, which meant it was not an obvious redevelopment opportunity but it still fetched $975,000.

Bayleys advertising brochure for the property described it as “ripe to restore or renovate.”

“If you bring your paintbrush, tool belt and imagination, this house could be transformed,” the brochure said.

Other highlights from Bayleys’ auction rooms this week included a three bedroom home unit at Torbay on the North Shore that fetched $716,000, a Remuera townhouse that went for $1.5 million, a large Muriwai home that sold for $995,000, and a Glendene house described as a “do up opportunity” that was on a potentially subdividable site that sold for $785,000.
