A Maryborough duplex that’s already gaining attention

On Wednesday, a strong turnout was expected for the first day of sightseeing at 21 Manor Avenue in Maryborough Ridge.

“It generates a lot of interest from first-time buyers, but is also very attractive to investors as it is privately owned and has no rent cap,” said auctioneer Dan Howard who had booked over 15 tours for Wednesday and was expecting to spend a lot of time showing off the modern three-bed duplex.

Guiding the property at € 290,000, he says it has over 1,200 square feet of living space, including a large terraced balcony to the rear, and is both well maintained and well decorated. “There is nothing to do, just add furniture and a Nespresso machine and you are home. »Accommodation comprises a living room with parquet floors and a fireplace and double doors opening onto a kitchen-diner. Double doors from the kitchen lead to the balcony overlooking a row of trees to the rear.

The property has a guest WC on the lower and upper levels, a bathroom and three bedrooms.

One bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and one – like thousands of rooms across the country – has become a home office.

Located in a cul-de-sac about 2 km from Douglas, the duplex opens onto a common green space at the front.

“The bus stop for the 220, which offers 24-hour service, is less than two minutes on foot,” says Howard.

VERDICT: Mr. Howard predicts a quick sale
