A waterfront home in Auckland’s Herne Bay that last changed hands 40 years ago has sold for $14 million, OneRoof reveals. The sale price, which had been confidential until now, is the highest for the suburb in 2021, eclipsing the previous record holder, a grand Victorian villa on Jervois Road that sold at the start of the year for $8.5m. Barfoot and Thompson’s Ponsonby branch manager Chris Batchelor said: “We were surprised at the number of buyers with over $10 million looking in this market. The amount of competition above $10 million is phenomenal at the moment.”
