HOUSES are sought-af­ter in St Marys and strong buyer de­mand is push­ing up prices.

The me­dian house price in the sub­urb rose 20 per cent in the 12 months to Fe­bru­ary, and is now at $456,150, lat­est fig­ures from CoreLogic RP Data show.

De­spite sit­ting well be­low Syd­ney’s me­dian of $767,000, St Marys’ me­dian jumped 54.6 per cent in the past five years.

One of the new­est list­ings in the area is this three-bed­room house that sits on about 565sq m.

It is a bat­tleaxe block in a con­ve­nient spot that lends easy ac­cess to shops, main roads, trans­port, parks and schools.

The house on the pri­vate par­cel of land was built in 2008 and has a mod­ern, flow­ing floor­plan.

There is a spa­cious lounge­room that first show­cases light floor tiles and down­lights that are through­out the home.

There is a dining area and the kitchen is gen­er­ous in size.

It has a con­tem­po­rary, neu­tral -toned tile splash­back.

The kitchen fea­tures a gas cook­top and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

A sec­ond living area can be used as a retreat or rum­pus room. It would also serve as a study.

The main bath­room has floor-to­ceil­ing tiles and a fea­ture strip. The toi­let is sep­a­rate.

A cov­ered en­ter­tain­ment area that branches off the back of the house is per­fect for host­ing guests.

There is also a de­cent amount of grass, which makes it easy to have a fam­ily pet.

The ex­tras in­clude split-sys­tem air­con­di­tion­ing, a rain­wa­ter tank and a sin­gle-car garage.
