A western Sydney home with a hidden selling point has won over buyers in a surprising sale.
A family from Pendle Hill was eager to secure a property at least 5km from Merrylands until they saw what was behind the unassuming facade of 7 Slapp St — a huge games room.

BRUCE WILLIS PUTS NEW YORK ESTATE ON THE MARKET
Unlike most rooms in the grand house, which have large windows and light colour palettes, the lower level’s best feature shows splashes of deep red and a bulkhead ceiling dotted with downlights.
Complete with a built-in bar, the closed in space runs the width of the house, spanning an impressive 11.3m x 5.9m.
“They originally had their hearts set on Greystanes but we took them to this home and they fell in love with it straight away,” Starr Partners agent Matt Carpenter said.
“The downstairs games room was definitely the clincher — they have a young son and daughter so they can play there and it is a fantastic way for them (the parents) to entertain friends and family,” he said.
The five-bedroom house on 620 sqm hit the market with a $1.4 million to $1.5 million price guide late last year.
It saw a whopping 60 inspections before selling for $1,412,500 through Mr Carpenter and agent Milad Chaar from the same office.
On the same level as the games room, there are also two storage rooms and a home office or extra bedroom.

The top storey houses all other bedrooms and two separate living spaces, one with access to a balcony that has district views.
CoreLogic data shows the large property went for almost double the suburb’s current median house price of $840,000.
“It’s great to see top end homes doing well,” Mr Carpenter said.
