The Essendon home was set to go to auction at midday on Saturday as the n Tax Office attempted to claw back money owed by Roberta Williams’ former father-in-law George Williams’ estate.

But it sold beforehand for an undisclosed amount.

Roberta Williams went to the Supreme Court to stop the sale by the n Taxation Office to pay off a $959,714 tax debt owed by George Williams’ estate, linked to money he made importing drugs.

Her daughter with Carl, Dhakota Williams, was bequeathed the house in her grandfathers’ will.

Justice Steven Moore on Friday rejected the claim to block the sale, allowing it to go ahead.

The property had a reserve price of $750,000, which he said would fall short of the amount owed to the tax office.

Sold by Nelson Alexander Essendon, the two-storey townhouse in Primrose Street was described as delivering an “outstanding low-maintenance lifestyle opportunity with its spacious floorplan, quality features throughout and private surrounds”.

It also included “motorised security shutters all-round”.

George Williams was first notified of the debt after he pleaded guilty to trafficking in November 2007.

The original debt proceedings were dropped, but fresh ones were brought in 2011 and in 2013 he agreed to mortgage his Primrose Street, Essendon property to the Commonwealth for $576,000 to cover the debt.

With interest, the figure is now just shy of a million dollars.
