Geelong Advertiser - - MARKET WRAP -

BRAV­ING wild weather and putting a hand up auc­tion has paid off for a fam­ily with its heart set on a quirky ren­o­vated for­mer bar­ber’s shop in Gee­long West. They se­cured 33 El­iz­a­beth St for $640,000 dur­ing post-auc­tion ne­go­ti­a­tions on Satur­day af­ter it was passed in on their fi­nal bid of $620,000. Bux­ton, Highton agent Wayne David­son said hair­dressers and beau­ti­cians had been among those to ex­press in­ter­est in the weath­er­board house, which in­cor­po­rates a shopfront con­verted into a third bed­room/stu­dio. But the buyer said she would re­tain its res­i­den­tial sta­tus, us­ing it as a fam­ily home. “It’s such a great lo­ca­tion, that’s what it’s all about re­ally,” she said. Bright green retro cab­i­nets in the kitchen were a stand­out in­te­rior fea­ture.
