This five-bedroom house has set a new Sunshine North price record after smashing through the $1 million barrier.

The previous record of $945,000 was achieved by a five-bedroom-plus study home in the River Valley Estate last June.

Auctioneer Douglas Kay opened the bidding for 17 Taniyha Place at $880,000 and four keen buyers were soon in the game for the 788-square-metre property, just around the corner from the popular Northumberland Road shopping strip.

The house was on the market at $950,000 and eventually sold to a family.

Agent Peter Kay said an influx of Vietnamese migrants had stimulated local businesses, and there were currently no vacancies in the retail strip.

Mr Kay said Sunshine North had good access to primary schools and Victoria University’s Sunshine campus, and there had been significant investment in the area such as Melbourne’s largest ambulance station.
