The eye-catching home will be going under the hammer.She added that the property had only changed hands three times since it was built in 1930. “We’ve been there 15 years, but we bought it from Mr Thompson — he was 102, and he lived for another two years, until 104. They were there 52 years,” she said.“It was built as a wedding present for a girl by her father. I love that idea, it’s such a pretty home and they did it with a wedding present.” House of the week: 9 Craven St, Clayfield.AN ICONIC Clayfield home will go under the hammer next month, marking the end of an era for owner Kate Naughton.Mrs Naughton, who purchased the home in 2002, said she felt it was a privilege to have been a part of the home’s history.“I have felt it’s been a privilege to be a part of the story of this house … and I am really proud to present it as it is now,” she said. FLOOR PLAN: 9 Craven St, Clayfield.“The first project was the oversized carport. It’s a six-car garage, but it’s got ceiling fans and all the technology connects and it’s been a lovely party area, apart from putting our cars in it.“Then we moved into one of our neighbour’s houses, as our second project was to do upstairs and to renovate the kitchen.”She said the third project was the swimming pool and heated spa. Style and class.“People can sit and chat in the spa area. We don’t use the bubbles, and it’s just a little area to heat up.“Then the very last project was to put the surface on the tennis court and the for sale sign out the front.”The home will go to auction on June 9 at 3pm.
