FROM the street, it’s a very cute looking Carina cottage.
But what lays beyond that front door was enough to draw 109 people to inspect it during its first open on the weekend and resulted in 14 offers.
The home at 17 Royds St, Carina was listed for offers of more than $699,000 and with the strong weekend interest marketing agent Craig Bullen of REMAX First Residential – Coorparoo believes it will sell for the mid $700,000s in the next couple of days.
Mr Bullen had an inkling before the first inspection of the three-bedroom house that interest would be strong because it was a real lifestyle property that presented well.
On Saturday 63 groups came through and on Sunday another 46 visited.
He said as prices increased in the Coorparoo, Camp Hill and Morningside area buyers were now pushing into Carina.
“It had a beautiful big deck with a pool,’’ he said.
“I doesn’t even have a dining room effectively.’’
The home had been extensively renovated throughout.
Wide bi-fold doors open onto the large deck which overlooks the newly constructed swimming pool, with a water feature.
There are polished hardwood timber floors throughout the property with the renovations, upgrading electrical, plumbing, painting gutters and downpipes.
