A newly built bathing box, built by the local council, at Brighton has been sold at a record price.

It was listed through Nick Johnstone Real Estate agent Alan McGillivray for weekend auction.

Given its location on the strip, a cautious mid-$200,000s price guidance was being given for Box 85.

But it sold on Saturday for $326,000.

The orange and yellow striped box, number 85, smashed the previous records when $295,000 was set in early 2016 and mid-year when bathing box 44 sold at $307,000.

The Herald Sun reported the auctioneer Nick Johnstone told the crowd only three more of the boxes will be built.

There were three bidders with it knocked down to Brighton East resident Warren Kerr, a father of three daughters.

There are far cheaper ones for sale, especially at Rosebud.
