Likened to an Australian-style Brady Bunch home, the Dwyer Street property has sold for $1,023,500 in an online auction.

The unique property at 49 Dwyer Street in Cook, resulted in the expected 31-hour online auction running 55 minutes overtime.

The property was the most-viewed ACT listing on realestate.com.au in the week to 23 April and has been among the top 10 most-viewed properties in the state for the past three weeks.

Selling agent Matt Sebbens, from Blackshaw - Belconnen, said the house was a standout in Canberra's market.

He said, "Bidding activity among the nine registered parties was subdued in the first 24 hours after the opening bid of $900,000, but there was a flurry of activity late on Friday."

"We were always really hopeful of getting around the $1 million mark so I was very happy with the outcome," Sebbens said.

It was the first time Blackshaw had used the timed online strategy to auction a property, which was staged via auction platform, AuctionNow.

Untouched since 1971, the five-bedroom, two-bathroom home is set on a 920sqm block and has 330sqm of internal living space as well as a 95sqm garage with parking for four vehicles.
