Girraween townhouse near top school sells for $842,000

Young families loved the back yard.

A TOWNHOUSE in the western suburb of Girraween was hot property today, selling for $822,000 — $22,000 above reserve — and for one very good reason.

The three-bedder at 101 Girraween Rd was in the catchment zone for the Girraween High School, which was ranked number eight in the state for the HSC in recent years.

The property was rented out for $615 a week until next August.

The property is rented out for $615 a week until next August, but the 11 young families who registered to bid were all prepared to wait.

“The 94 per cent average for maths was a real selling point,” Listwise Realty Merrylands agent Jonathon Salhab said.

Open-plan living areas opened out to the back lawn.

Other attractions were the fact there were no strata fees, the split-level design and the easy access to the M4.

Bidding had started at $710,000 and risen in $10,000 increments up to $790,000, and then $1000s and $500s.

The price was higher than the $830,000 that another three-bedroom townhouse fetched prior to its scheduled auction last week, at 14/101-103 Gilba Rd.
