White Gables, a four bedroom house in Clayfield, an inner northern suburb in the City of Brisbane, sold at weekend auction.

The $4 million buyers were local medical professionals with two young boys, who Domain reported had been hunting for their perfect home for three to four years. 

It was offered by Matt Lancashire and Christine Rudolph from Ray White who had three registered bidders.

Bidding opened at $3 million going up in $250,000 increments. It was announced on the market at $4 million. 

The 9 Craven Street home combines traditional elegance with architectural style.

White Gables, a much-admired Brisbane residence, has been held by only three separate families since its creation in the early 1900s. 

The house was commissioned by wealthy timber merchant George Brown who chose to construct the statement wedding gift for his daughter out of red brick with an extensive use of the finest timbers throughout the interior. 

The current vendors Kate and John Naughton purchased its 15 years ago from a prominent local resident who had lived on the property until he was 102.
