Kangaroos forward Jarrad Waite sold his Moonee Ponds home at $1.48 million at weekend auction.

The Edwardian cottage was expected to fetch $1.15 million plus but went $200,000 over reserve give four bidders battled it out for the three-bedroom home on Addison Street listed through Charles Bongiovanni of Alexkarbon, North Melbourne.

Waite was moving his growing family to a nearby larger home at Strathmore with his wife Jackie and their baby son.

Waite and his wife have refurbished their double-fronted period home since purchasing in 2008 for $764,500, but have not altered its floorplan.

It sold to an Ascot Vale family, according to the Herald Sun. One of the bidders that missed out did not go home empty-handed, though, taking home a signed Sherrin for kicking off the bidding at $1.305 million, which was $5000 above reserve.
