A two-bedroom apartment in a trendy Sydney inner-city suburb has sold for nearly $1million over its asking price.
The flat in Darlinghurst in the city’s east was bought for a mammoth $2.7million despite being listed for $1.8million.
The sum dwarfs the median price for two-bedroom homes in the area which sits at $1.4million, according to Real Estate.

The apartment, which sits on a tranquil backstreet in the popular suburb, features three balconies, two parking spaces and timber floorboards throughout.
The period home has all of the regular trimmings that make a house a home – including a quaint living and dining room – but Veronica Morgan of Good Deed Property told NCA NewsWire the sale ‘defied logic’.
She said the ‘uniqueness’ of two car spaces and three balconies drove the price up exponentially but indicated the second bedroom was tiny and the house was leaking during inspections due to torrential rain.

Mitchell Farah, founder of First Hand Real Estate, told Daily Mail Australia the country is seeing a ‘perfect storm’ of low interest rates, changing market standards and positive buyer sentiment.
‘Results like this condition buyers to see what they need to pay at this time but also establishes higher expectations for upcoming sellers,’ he said.
‘What we are hearing from many owners who consider selling is a fear that they might be priced out of their next purchase.’
