This week’s featured property is approximately 4 km from the city in a prestige suburb dominated by character residential homes recently purchased for $1,721,000. This is a great opportunity for an investor or developer as development opportunities rarely present themselves in this premier location. The property is already subdivided into 3 parcels of 544m2 each equating to a purchase price of $573,667 per parcel.
