A six-bedroom, four-bathroom Turramurra sold for $5,105,000, $305,000 over the reserve at weekend auction, a suburb record.

Robert Ward of LJ Hooker Wahroonga said there were five registered bidders.

Three were Asian buyers and two were local, and a local Dutch couple who'd lived in Wahroonga for about 10 years secured the propety.

The 40 Ku-Ring-Gai Avenue house was originally built in 1898 on one of the north shore's finest streets and was last renovated in 2009.

The near 2000 square metre holding has a tennis court and a pool. It last sold in 2006 at $2.95 million.

Originally built in 1898 it was first renovated by Slayter & Cosh Architects in 1902. The property was further renovated by Arthur Stanton Cook Architects in 1929 and again by the current vendors in 2009 through Lindsay Little Architects. 

Property Observer gleans the prior record was $5 million.
