Under the hammer this Saturday

Another busy weekend of auction action is scheduled for Australasia’s largest real estate group with a wide variety of Ray White homes scheduled to go under the hammer across the country this Saturday.

In Melbourne, a charming English-style red clinker brick residence (below) is going to auction at 11am.

“Acushla”, which is Irish for “darling”, is on a north-facing 703sq m allotment in one of Ashburton’s finest pockets at 36 Eleanor St.

“It’s in a fantastic location,” Ray White Box Hill director and auctioneer Jeremy Tyrrell said.

“Walk to the train station, Ashburton Primary, parks, as well as all the High Street shops, cafes and restaurants.

“There’s also great access to Chadstone Shopping Centre, Holmesglen TAFE, Deakin University and the Monash Freeway.”

Mr Tyrrell said the impressive four bedroom home had been extended, but there remains scope to improve further.

“This is an ideal property for families wanting to get into the blue-chip Melbourne real estate market,” Mr Tyrrell said.

The indicative selling price listed for 36 Eleanor St, Ashburton is $1,850,000 – $2,035,000.

At the same time, Nick Psarros and Penny Papazis of Ray White Port Adelaide are taking a beautifully refurbished well-presented 1920s bungalow (above) to auction.

The large corner allotment at 25 Arthur St, Pennington has side access, meticulously maintained gardens with established dwarf fruit trees, a large rear yard for the children to run around and an undercover entertaining area.

“It’s a magnificently renovated bungalow on around a 700sq m block,” Mr Psarros said.

“Everything is high grade and the builders have done a fantastic job.”

Also at 11am is the auction of a completely renovated five bedroom family home (above) on a quiet cul-de-sac at 27 Stewart St, Randwick.

Sydney’s CBD is less than 8kms away, Coogee Beach is a short walk, while just around the corner are cafes, restaurants, bars and cinemas.

“I sell a lot of property and this is probably one of the best renovations I’ve seen for a long time,” Ray White Double Bay sales executive Kim Hayes said.

“There’s a great energy to this home and it’s a solid renovation.

“It also represents fantastic value for a family who doesn’t wish to renovate.”

A price guide of $2.2 million offers an exciting opportunity for buyers, as unrenovated homes in the area sell for a lot more, according to Ms Hayes.

Views of both the ocean and city are available from 84a Paramatta Rd in Perth’s family-friendly suburb of Doubleview.

Set right at the top of a hill, on one of the suburb’s highest points, is this two-storey executive residence (above) which is going under the hammer at 11am (AWST).

Ray White North Quays sales consultant Geniene Donald is marketing the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home which is less than 3kms from the beach.

A 546sq m Brisbane property (above) will also go under the hammer at 10.30am this Saturday.

The double-story brick home and surrounding level lawn at 3 Mintern St, MacGregor has the potential for development, subject to council approval.

It’s 14kms to Brisbane’s CBD and close to the Pacific Motorway, MacGregor State Primary and State High schools, Market Square, Westfield Garden City and Griffith University’s Nathan Campus.

“We’ve had more than 40 groups through with plenty of interest,” said Ray White East Brisbane’s Justin Marsden.

“Families are keen, as are investors because the property is in a large growth corridor.”
