Property Watch: Bolwarra's Anderton Cottage set for auction while Bar Beach apartment block hits market

One of Bolwarra’s “marquee” properties has attracted interest from as far as Miami in the United States ahead of its action on site on Saturday.

James Rodrick, of Starr Partners, is marketing Anderton Cottage at 20 Paterson Road.

The home, which was built in the late 1800s and has been extensively renovated by its owners, is positioned on around 1700 square metres of land.

It features four bedrooms, original features, guest quarters and open plan living which extends to covered entertaining. It overlooks a heated inground pool and spa surrounded by a frameless glass fence and grey sandstone pavers.

“It’s in quite a niche little area in Bolwarra, which in itself is always well regarded,” Mr Rodrick said.

“It would be be one of the marquee properties of the area. There are certainly larger and more historical homes but I think the refinement of it makes it a stand-out property.”

There are Ironbark timber floors and Carrara marble in the kitchen and bathrooms, which also have underfloor heating.

“We’ve had phenomenal interest; it’s exceeded expectations,” Mr Rodrick said.

“Through the first three open homes we had around 100 groups and it’s a been a real mix.”

The auction is set for midday on site and the home has a price guide of $1.1 million to $1.2 million. There is an inspection scheduled for 11.30am. 

BAR BEACH BLOCK LISTED

An apartment block overlooking Empire Park in Bar Beach has hit the market for the first time since it was built in 1935 with a guide of $3.2 million to $3.5 million.

First National Newcastle City’s George Rafty said there had been “good interest from all over the country” within the first week of marketing the property on the corner of Bar Beach Avenue and Brooks Street.

It comprises four two-bedroom units and has an R3 zoning, which means another level could be added to the two-storey building, subject to council approval.

It has an inspection at 10am Saturday and auction on September 22.

PRIME POSITION: This block of four two-bedroom units at 42 Bar Beach Avenue in Bar Beach is on the market for the first time since it was built in 1935.
