In Fitzroy North, it was buyers from North Queensland who paid $1.3 million post-auction on an award winning two-bedroom home, Casa de Gatos, which translates to house of cats in Spanish. 

The single storey 49 Rae Street property had come with $1.2 million to $1.3 million price guidance after its design by WOWOWA Architects.

The home won the Victorian Australian Institute of Architects 2017 Small Projects Award, expressly designed with the owners two dogs and two cats in mind.

Husband and wife team Monique and Scott Woodward are the founding directors of WOWOWA – a studio “governed by the metric of happiness”.

Its most striking feature is a curved, carpeted, orange cat wall topped by an aerial cat walkway.

Nelson Alexander agent Rick Daniel told The Age it wasn’t the biggest selling point for the new owners.
