Original family home in Casula sells for first time
A character-filled property in Sydney’s south west that hit the market for the first time has sold for $895,000.
Securing one of the Liverpool region’s top sale prices for the week, the original home at 4 Doomben Close, Casula, fetched $85,000 more than the suburb’s median house price, according to CoreLogic figures.

THE REGIONS WHERE BUYERS GET ‘BANG FOR THEIR BUCK’
While the agent took a healthy 23 groups through the property in the three-week campaign, it failed to sell under the hammer.
However, it went under contract just two days later, according to Professionals Paradise Realty’s Stuart Zullo.
“The eventual buyers were at the auction but couldn’t obtain their finances in time … they went back to the bank and were able to go ahead,” Mr Zullo told the Liverpool Leader.
“They are a family who were upgrading. They liked the street and the style of the house suited their tastes,” he said.
Records show the seller family paid $98,500 for the 658 sqm block in 1992. Two years later, a Masterton house was built on the site.
The original owners had the home’s design customised. The four-bedder features high vaulted ceilings, ceiling roses and exposed brick walls.
A formal loungeroom with its charming floor-to-ceiling bay windows is a highlight, along with the rear entertainment area.

The vendors held the property for more than a decade longer than the suburb’s median hold period of 13.1 years.
Mr Zullo said the seller family agreed it was time for their much-loved estate to change hands.
