A contemporary Brighton home struggled for bids at weekend auction, but found a buyer post-auction.

The home at 1 Laburnum Court was designed by architect Martin Friedrich to be his own home. It was sold by him at $2,925,000 in 2014.

Buxton Brighton auctioneer John Clarkson took an opening bid of $3 million, which was followed by a vendor’s bid of $3.05 million.

The Laburnum Court home passed in at auction but sold later at an undisclosed price to a professional couple moving to the bayside area for the first time.

The four bedroom home had price expectations of $3.2 million-plus.

It was one of 677 auctions across Melbourne this week, recording an 75 percent clearance rate, according to CoreLogic.
