A local builder has spent $2.7 million in a post-auction deal on a rundown 1890s Ascot Vale stable complex.

Goodwood, at 42 Myross Avenue, was once home to late harness-racing trainer and driver William “Bill” Davin for 60 years.

The property was quoted at $2.5 million to $3 million price guidance.

It sold to John Paul Kavanagh, and his wife Erin, who were reportedly the only ones to raise their hands at the auction of the 1336 square metre block on Whiskey Hill.

It comprised an original heritage-listed home and nine stables.

The delipidated home overlooks large lawns and nine stables.

A string of harness-racing champions were housed in the stables, including eight Hunter Cup winners and three-time winner of “the Melbourne Cup of harness-racing”, the Inter Dominion, Our Sir Vancelot.
