Did you say Angkor Wat is for sale?

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REALESTATE -

AN En­more prop­erty — dubbed Angkor Wat — has been listed with $1.3 mil­lion hopes.

The derelict prop­erty, once a board­ing house, has be­come so choked with veg­e­ta­tion the list­ing agent sug­gests it re­sem­bles the famed Cam­bo­dian tem­ple where tree roots dom­i­nate the built en­vi­ron­ment.

But there are no carv­ings of deities, known as de­vatas, adorn­ing the walls on Juli­ett St — there is just graf­fiti.

The of­fer­ing is mar­keted as hav­ing three bed­rooms and one bath­room, but there’s no roof or in­ter­nal walls, just veg­e­ta­tion amid sheets of cor­ru­gated metal.

The own­ers, the Gold­berg fam­ily of Vau­cluse, gut­ted it to stop the prop­erty from be­com­ing a squat.

West, who has a June 9 auc­tion, says the 230sqm block will be sought by builders, adding it is lo­cated on En­more’s best street, with an eight me­tre frontage. It last traded at $7200 in March 1966, the month af­ter dec­i­mal cur­rency was in­tro­duced.
