A Narrabeen house marketed as the bolthole of the pop group ABBA when they toured Sydney in the 1970s was among the auction listings.

The house had been owned by a company of the late entertainment industry mogul Reg Grundy who brought the singing superstars to Australia in 1977.

The former Grundy staff home came with a price guide of $1.6 million through Julie Bundock, of Domain Residential Newport sold for $1.76 million.

The vendor John Sergeant recently told the local paper, The Manly Daily that he became aware of the link when he moved into 15 Nioka Road (pictured above) and started catching taxis to work.

“All of the Manly cab drivers who picked me up reckon that, yes, this is definitely where ABBA stayed,” he said.

Reg Grundy sold in 1978 for $90,000 having paid $87,500 in 1974.
