Noise reputation doesn’t stop Tempe cottage selling for $1.2m

A modest but well maintained two-bedroom cottage at 4 Edwin Street in Tempe’s western corner fetched $1.22 million at auction on Saturday, leaving both the sellers and the buyers beaming.

The painted-timber house with a white picket fence last traded hands for a paltry $490,000 in 2006. Its position on one of Tempe’s quietest and most tightly held streets all but guaranteed a sale, according to agent Rosalie Gordon of Planet Properties.
