Downsizers attracted to lifestyle benefits of four-year-old build in South Geelong
THE prospect of living on a busy road was no deterrent for several buyers attracted to a modern, low-maintenance property in Fyans St, South Geelong.
The three-bedroom house, built just four years ago, sold before auction for above the $600,000 to $650,000 quoted price range.
McGrath, Geelong agent Wayne Baker said the buyers were downsizers already living in the neighbourhood.

He said they were looking for something smaller that was easy to lock up and leave when travelling.
“It was a beautiful little townhouse that was very low maintenance that appealed to first-home buyers and downsizers and it was downsizers that purchased there,” Mr Baker said.
“There was great interest in the property, it was meticulously built and presented.”
The house at 105 Fyans St is within walking distance of South Geelong train station, GMHBA Stadium, the Barwon River and cafes.
A light and bright open-plan living zone at the rear connects to a north-facing courtyard and is dressed with floating floorboards and high ceilings.
Other features include a main bedroom with ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe and a single garage with internal access.
South Geelong’s median house price has held steady over the past 12 months at $650,000, according to CoreLogic.
