The sale of the humble two-bedroom home on Nield Avenue in Rodd Point, Sydney’s inner west, exceeded the owner’s expectations thanks to its waterfront location and city views.

Real estate agent Jim Piper from Time Realty told Daily Mail Australia the sale was ‘totally unexpected’.
‘It totally blew everyone away. I can’t explain it,’ he said.
‘It was a good guide about what’s happening in the market at the moment.’
The house, which is surrounded by multi-storey estates, offers a lot of room for renovation or a second level.
The home had been built by its previous owners who lived in the dwelling for 70 years
‘It was a much loved home built by the previous owners who lived there for 70 years,’ Mr Piper said.
‘There was a lot of emotion with the sale – it was just great for them.’
Mr Piper said another key selling point of the home was how close it is to the city as well as nearby cafes and restaurants.
One of the first bids for the 567sqm home came in at $3million.
The house has room for renovation as well as a second storey. The quaint kitchen featured retro cabinetry and linoleum floors
