1950s home proves town property up

AN absolute waterfront house in Murwillumbah that is being offered for auction this Saturday has attracted surprisingly strong interest, adding weight to the argument the town has become a property hot spot.

The home at 11 Rose Lane, in a secluded riverside street in the Greenhills area, attracted 10 groups of potential buyers at the first open house on October 3, eight groups on October 10 and six again last Saturday.

Ray White Murwillumbah principal Wally Trankle said he was impressed with the interest in the 1950s home, which had a spacious rear veranda overlooking the Tweed River with views to Mt Warning.

The three-bedroom home with two bathrooms and two living areas is set on 1289 square metres of waterfront property.

It is said to have had only two or three owners in its history.

“This is a sought-after location, not only elevated and out of flood but also tucked away from Tweed Valley Way, providing a much quieter lifestyle,” Mr Trankle said.

“The surrounding homes are mostly owner-occupied, making it a great place to live.”

Meanwhile, developer Stockland has announced a special $12,000 bonus for buyers of new homes in its Hundred Hills estate on the western side of the town.

The company is offering a $5000 bonus to be spent on an outdoor living area, and a $7000 outdoor kitchen, complete with barbecue, sink and fridge.

Stockland's regional manager Col Dutton said residents of the area already enjoyed a great outdoor lifestyle and could now have an outdoor living area to match.
