Wellington: New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum's splendid home located in Christchurch, the largest city in South Island, has sold for more than three million dollars.
The six-bedroom property was sold for more than 3.3 million dollars. Listing agent Alison Aitken said that it sold for a lot more than that but the final sum was not disclosed.
Property records have revealed that McCullum and his wife bought the 664-square-metre property for 3.5 million dollars in 2011, when it had a rateable value of 2.86 million dollars. The rateable value is now 3.53 million dollars, Stuff.co.nz reported.
Property records also listed Garth Gallaway , McCullum's lawyer, as an owner of the house.
McCullum has played 386 games for New Zealand, including 87 Tests. He was not at the auction as he is playing in Twenty20's Champions Trophy in India for Indian Premier League (IPL) team, the Chennai Super Kings.
The lavish home includes six bathrooms and four living areas. The outdoor area boasts a large entertaining space with all-weather TV, fireplace and a large heated swimming pool.
Harcourts real estate agent Cameron Bailey worked with the Christchurch buyers of the property and said that they were very happy with the result. He said that the buyers have got children too and they're happy as well, adding that it's a good family home.
