The Neil Clerehan-designed Barwon Heads mid-century modern has been snapped up weeks before its May auction for $6.75 million.

It was built in the late 1960s after the Gubbins family purchased their Riverside Terrace block on the river near Geelong for $1,960.

It traded for the first time in over three decades, having last sold for $160,000 in 1986 when bought by the Stasiuk family.

The Gubbins family sold the home in 1978 for $111,000, and there have only been two subsequent owners since.

Set behind towering intact Moonah trees on a 1,620 square metre double block, the single level, double brick modernist home is strategically located as close to the water as much as possible.

Its Fletchers Bellarine Peninsula listing agents exceeded their record breaking $6.5 million hopes.  

The record stood at $4.4 million, set in 2017 when a Paringa Lane waterfront sold quietly.
