A five-bedroom, three bathroom period home at 15 Kalimna Street, Essendon, fetched $2.917 million at weekend auction.

The initial $2.35 million pre-auction price guidance was incased during the campaign to $2.5 million plus.

The grand Edwardian home sits on a substantial 1115 square metre block at 15 Kalimna Street in Essendon's Windy Hill district.

It last traded at $1.86 million in 2004 and before that $460,000 in 1991.

Prices had hit $2.75 million next door in April for a home on 1074 square metres.


The elegant period details are a highlight at 15 Kalimna St, Essendon.


Nelson Alexander, Essendon sold the property that features ornate cornices, open fireplaces and rich timber tones.

A self-contained guest wing is located at the rear of the house.

The wide and leafy Kalimna Street is within walking distance to Pascoe Vale and Mount Alexander roads, but you can't hear any traffic.

It's the large Federation and Edwardian brick homes that make Kalimna Street the suburb's top street.

The house was the fifth most expensive home to sell in Australia last week, according to CoreLogic RP Data.
