Elizabeth Hills: Single-level property proves a hit with buyers

28 Gowanlea Ave, Elizabeth Hills.

A three-year-old home in Elizabeth Hills has been snapped up for $60,000 more than its asking price.

The single-storey property at 28 Gowanlea Ave went under the hammer at the weekend with seven registered bidders and sold for $860,000.

“Bidding started at $750,000 and five parties were active,” selling agent Sam Ruisi from Raine and Horne Wetherill Park said.

Mr Ruisi said bids were rising in $10,000 increments initially and, after some competition, it dwindled down before an eager house hunter placed the winning bid.

The property hit the market at the end of October with a price guide of $800,000.

Set on about 390 sqm, the house has four bedrooms, open-plan living rooms plus a media room which can double as a study or teenage retreat.

At the back of the house is a covered entertainment area and a flat lawn.

Mr Ruisi said he took almost 30 groups through the property during the campaign. Most parties were a mix of downsizers and first home buyers.

As the sellers prepare to move to the state’s south coast, the new owner will leave the city and live in the property to be closer to family.
