A Wonthaggi house with a DIY Holden logo built into the chimney has proven the most popular listing the agent’s had “in a long time”.
The trademark lion takes pride of place on the facade of the character-heavy three-bedroom house at 11 Beard St, which was on the market for $380,000.
But NIKA Real Estate’s Di Abrahamson said buyers had raced to snap up the colourful pad and it was now under contract — with the red and white guardian spirit “a talking point”.
“The owners created the logo and they’re just lovers of Holden. It’s quite colourful inside and out and it’s just something the owners have taken on themselves,” she said.
“It’s been the most popular house we’ve had in a long time, mainly probably because of the price point; it’s now under contract for the asking price.”
Listing photos show a lilac kitchen, hot pink bedroom adorned with red Jim Beam doona cover, blue living room and purple child’s room at the full throttle suburban dream.
There’s also an outdoor toilet and laundry out the back.
Ms Abrahamson said the Holden design “went down well” at inspections.
“It was certainly a talking point; some people are Ford, some people are Holden … the buyers did comment on it that ‘wow, the owner’s definitely a Holden fan’,” she said, unsure where the buyers’ motorsports allegiance lied, but “they didn’t say they were going to cover it up.”
And she “wouldn’t be surprised” if the sellers created something similar at their new home.
Aside from the price point, the 947sq m land size and position were other drawcards.
“In Bass Coast you’re really struggling to buy a house for under $400,000 now, the median house price is over $400,000 — Wonthaggi’s is $432,000,” Ms Abrahamson said.
