Did you say Angkor Wat is for sale?
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.
