Full circle on Nedlands street

Full circle on Nedlands street

LIFE has come full circle for the sellers of 20 Langham Street, Nedlands.

Their parents purchased the home from an LJ Hooker agent and more than 50 years later LJ Hooker again played a role, with Vivien Yap auctioning the home on Saturday, August 20.

Roz Davies said her parents bought the home in 1965, just before decimalisation, and paid six thousand pounds, about $12,000.

“My mum wanted one of the grand houses closer to the highway, with more character features, but it was 500 pounds more and my father wouldn’t pay that much,” she said.

Mrs Yap said more than 50 people attended the auction, with three bidders competing for the home. It sold under the hammer for $1.175 million. n
