Lifestyle hunters targeted 12 Grandview Avenue in Maribyrnong and even though “I can hear a ringtail possum” is the meaning of this suburb’s name, the only sound was an auction pack. However, the name of the street clearly set the standard for everything which follows. With an elevated riverside position where breathtaking views take centrestage and with an open feel represented by spacious blocks of land, this suburb stresses the virtues of relaxation.
The Auctioneer, Adrian Butera addressed the crowd, describing the stunning panorama which spans the width of the scenic district. “Ladies and gentlemen, you only have to look at the name of the street! This is such an exciting opportunity to position yourself within the leafy surrounds only moments to Highpoint Shopping Centre,” he enthusiastically said. A vendor bid opened proceedings and Adrian was met with the all too familiar silence from the crowd but he persevered. A couple of bids too far from the reserve price were made and rather than continue the auction game in public, Adrian passed the property in, inviting the sole players indoors to continue negotiations. This three bedroom, one bathroom home sold for an undisclosed price.
At the beginning of this home’s marketing campaign, the owner sat inside his living area and reflected about what it’s been like living here. “The vivid memories I recall are hosting my children’s birthday parties where there was never ending dancing in the sun swept sequence of living spaces. Now they are all grown up and it’s time for new beginnings but I will miss the whole atmosphere and memories,” he explained.
If a poll went out firing the question, “What is the most liveable suburb in Melbourne?” Maribyrnong would naturally arise as a leader as the way of life here is something which isn’t often spoken about but truly is to envy. This suburb has quickly morphed into a population hot spot where contemporary new townhouses and developments are currently underway. Strong demand has been outstripping supply in the past 12 months and the median price sits at the healthy figure of $780,000. The parks which wind through the area is one of the sole reasons that buyers will continue to retain their strong belief in purchasing property in this district.
