The five-bedroom block has been popular with its sellers for almost 20 years. It features a fresh renovation, including a stylish kitchen and bathrooms.
A stylish five-bedroom apartment in Melbourne’s east is going under the hammer at a competitive auction.
The 785 sq ft property at 2 Coachmans Court, Vermont South snagged a $2.05 million sale on Thursday night.
It was originally listed with a price guide of $1.68-1.848 million.

Biggin & Scott Glen Waverley’s Lily Liaw had the list and said a reserve hadn’t been set because the bidding “started really high”.
Sellers Vicki and Rob McNally said the sale was “amazing” and were pleased with the “fantastic” result.
The couple bought the home nearly 20 years ago from the original owners for $393,000, according to CoreLogic.
They raised their three children at the property, who also attended Thursday’s twilight auction – held in the backyard by the pool.
Ms McNally said the pool was the first upgrade they made to the house and was “the best investment”.
“The kids all had pool parties there,” she said.
The McNallys have carried out a number of renovations over the years, including the addition of a glamorous kitchen and three modern bathrooms.
Ms Liaw said three bidders fought for the keys on Thursday.
“We see more quality buyers than quantity,” she said.
A young couple from Hong Kong won the keys, who asked a buyer advocate to bid on their behalf.
“It’s going to be really sad to leave,” Ms McNally said.
“The neighbors are fantastic.”
The couple are now downsizing but hope to buy another old house to renovate in the future.
“We were able to take advantage of it and we are happy that the next owners will be too,” said Ms McNally.
