Buyer, seller and auctioneer alike enjoyed an early Christmas in Nicholls on Saturday morning, as 136 Temperley Street went under the hammer well within expectations.
Auctioneer and LJ Hooker franchise owner Matthew Herbert said the sale of the Mediterranean-style four bedroom property for $1,330,000 was good news for Nicholls and the wider Gungahlin area.
The property, boasting an outdoor undercover entertainment area, built-in pizza oven and heated saltwater pool, attracted a decent crowd in the final week before Christmas and saw strong bidding.
Backing onto a nature reserve and close to Gold Creek Village in an exclusive area of the suburb, the house’s sale for a price within the seller’s expectations will inspire confidence in the suburb in the new year.
The sale comes after several other properties sold for well over $1 million in recent months. The highest sale in the suburb this year reached more than $2 million in October.
Neighbouring Crace has also had success in recent weeks.
“It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, quality property in one of the best areas will sell,” Mr Herbert said.
“This is a real vote of confidence and a strong sign for both Nicholls and Gungahlin in general.”
