A nondescript brick house at 1 Pinoak Court, Vermont South – a suburb of Melbourne, Australia – has just sold for $1.6m AUD, the first time it has changed hands in 30 years.
The buyers, a couple originally from China, had never heard of Neighbours. They were also unaware they would have a camera crew filming outside their home a few days a week, but were fine when told the cameras would not be coming inside their home – as well as the location fee stipend in their pockets.
The house has been home to Jarrod ‘Toadie’ Rebecchi, Mrs Mangel, Jane Harris, Joe Mangel, Dee Bliss, Stephanie Scully, Max Hoyland, Lucas Fitzgerald, David Tanaka, Aaron Brennan amongst others.
