Caulfield Grammar is understood to have outbid residential developers to secure an East Malvern’s redevelopment site.

The school reportedly paid $12.6 million for the 2230 square metre site opposite Central Park.

Its two vendors secured a windfall $5650 a square metre.

The two houses at 385-387 Wattletree Road, next to the historic Commonwealth Bank building, were put to market in a joint offering late last year.

They are around the corner from Caulfield Grammar’s junior school, the heritage-listed Valentine’s mansion on Willoby Avenue.

Colliers International negotiated the deal claiming the price reflected more than a 100 per cent uplift in the values they would have achieved compared with selling individually.
