Under the hammer this Saturday

IT’S that time of the week again when we take a look at raywhite.com to share with you our hot five homes going under the hammer on Saturday.

Australasia’s largest real estate group is once again preparing for a busy weekend of auction action so a wide variety of Ray White properties are polished up and ready to sell.


Fancy a sea-change with the most fantastic scenic views? Throw your hat into the ring to purchase a contemporary three-level Sunshine Coast home (above) at 39 Tamin Place, Maroochy River.

“This is an ideal buy for a family or an older couple who want that extra bit of land without the maintenance,” Ray White Maroochydore’s Jason Mills said.

“It’s hard to find anything else that has these ridiculously picturesque views, and it’s only ten to 15 minutes from multiple beaches.

“To get to Brisbane it’s a 6km drive to the Bruce Highway so it’s in a great spot, on a quiet cul-de-sac with the most extraordinary outlook.”

The property, which is scheduled to go to auction at 10am, also has a swimming pool and two fully-fenced paddocks.

Around 90 minutes away in Brisbane is 48 Greens Rd, Coorparoo which is available to buy under the hammer at midday.

The dual-occupancy post-war home (above) is on an 809sq m block which offers a number of exciting options for the new owner.

“It’s a rare piece of land because a lot of homes in this area are character homes which can’t be removed,” Ray White Coorparoo’s Mel Christie said.

“This is a post-war home, even though it looks more like a pre-war house because it was renovated to appear more traditional.”

Ms Christie said the property would suit a growing or extended family with independent access for each level and internal stairs.

Meantime, at 11am in Melbourne, Ray White Box Hill director and auctioneer Jeremy Tyrrell is taking another standout property (above) to auction.

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home at 9 Mersey St has been beautifully renovated and extended on an impressive 757sq m parcel of prized Box Hill North land.

“It’s a stunning Californian bungalow with a twist of modern,” Mr Tyrrell said.

“It’s in the Box Hill High School zone which is really important, and it borders Box Hill, so the position is excellent.”

The indicative selling price for 9 Mersey St, Box Hill North is $1,690,000 – $1,859,000.

Still in Melbourne, where Ray White Brunswick’s Abdul Allouche is taking an architect-designed townhouse (above) to auction at midday.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home at 6/63 Crown St, Flemington has cathedral ceilings, timber floors, an open-plan layout, study and secure gated covered parking.

“In regards to fixtures and fittings, this is one of the better built townhouses,” Mr Allouche said.

“The location is perfect for young couples and investors.”

Mr Allouche said the price guide for this townhouse sits in the mid $700,000s.

Head to South Coogee for the 12.30pm auction of a freestanding brick home (above) with ocean and coastline views to Bondi.

Marketed by Ray White Maroubra/South Coogee sales agent Nader Hotait, the two-storey house is on a corner 411sq m block at 2 Palmer St, which is within walking distance to popular beachfront cafes.

“The position is incredible, you’re looking straight down the coastline,” Mr Hotait said.

“It’s a very rare block to come up as they’re tightly held in the street and it’s the first time on the market for around 35 years.”

Mr Hotait is marketing 2 Palmer St, South Coogee with a price guide of $3 million to $3.2 million.
