An Armadale architect’s own home sold for $3.052 million with three bidders pushed price $82,000 past reserve at a Marshall White auction.

The 19A Valentine Grove house, offered by Jessica Liew, was short-listed for the architectureau.com Houses Award in 2013, and received a high commendation in the 2013 Think Brick Australia Recycle, Reuse and Restore Award category.

The Herald Sun reported a South Melbourne family winning the keys.

Liew, a director at Plus Architecture, paid $762,000 for the 370 square metre property in 2010 with her husband Cavan.

Built with timber slatted walls and vast expanses of glass, the Valentine Grove property has dark grey polished concrete floors.

There's three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a library overlooking a tranquil central fish pond and a temperature controlled 1,200 bottle wine room.

A walled north east garden is lined by blackboard style walls, complete with a commissioned mural.

The home has been regularly featured in magazines.

Marshall White agents Fraser Cahill and Madeline Kennedy had a price guide of between $2.5 million and $2.75 million.

The couple, now with a young child, are looking for their next project.
