CHARMING HOME FETCHES TOP PRICE FOR 2019
Set to go under the hammer on Saturday morning, the house at 24 Billeroy Ave has a $999,000 to $1.098 million price guide.
The two-storey residence is set back on a 696 sqm block and fronts bushland — a feature attracting many local buyers.
“We’ve had 141 inspections and for an entire campaign we are usually looking at 75, so this one has been going really well,” listing agent Daniel Sarzano from Ray White Baulkham Hills said.
“The main buyers have been young families looking to upgrade in the area; they love that it is opposite a reserve and close to Crestwood Public School and shops,” Mr Sarzano said.
The beautifully maintained brick home has formal and casual living areas on the lower level, and four spacious bedrooms plus a balcony on the top floor.
Floor-to-ceiling tiles and a spa bath are highlights in the main bathroom while the kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar.
A paved entertainment area at the rear spans the width of the house. It is private with ample space to host a barbecue for friends and family.
There is also a fenced saltwater pool to splash about in, and it adjoins a level lawn.
According to Mr Sarzano, the owners have called the property home for about 15 years and are selling to downsize as their children have grown up.
Here are some other family-friendly homes tipped to sell under the hammer over the weekend.
