Melbourne Cricket Club vice president Fred Oldfield has collected an eight-figure sum for his Malvern family home with its own impressive sports bar.
The five-bedroom pad with a tennis court at 7A Haverbrack Avenue sold for $10.275m, according to industry sources, after being advertised for $9m-$9.9m.
Mr Oldfield, who is a non-executive director of Westbourne Capital and joined the MCC committee in 2012, previously told Property Confidential he and wife Martine were “hoping to move closer to the MCG”.
“We bought the home in anticipation of (the arrival) our twin sons and now we’ve had their 21st birthdays here. So many people have been through the house and enjoyed it with us,” he said when the property was listed.
The sports bar retreat is separate from the main residence and sits alongside the tennis court, with a fireplace and bathroom to complement the built-in bar.
There’s also a pool, barbecue kitchen and outdoor entertaining area extending beyond a verdant pergola adjoining the main house.
A home office with a built-in aquarium, and a renovated living and dining room, are other highlights of the 1122sq m north-facing property.
Marshall White Stonnington directors Andrew Hayne and Marcus Chiminello had the listing but did not respond to the Herald Sun when contacted about the sale.
It had been listed in an expressions of interest private sale campaign with offers closing May 4, and sold May 11, according to its realestate.com.au listing.
CoreLogic records show the property last sold for $1.3m in March 1997.
