Media release - 18th December, 2014

A prime commercial property in the inner Sydney suburb of Marrickville sold today under the hammer for $2.4 million.

249 Marrickville Road, Marrickville

Selling agent, Luke Smith, Director of Raine & Horne Commercial South Sydney/Marrickville, said that a private investor paid $400,000 above reserve to secure the three-storey freehold building, which sits on a 196 square metre block at 249 Marrickville Road, Marrickville.

“The auction attracted nine motivated bidders and the result demonstrates that any retail building in Sydney’s Inner West with the potential for improvements or residential conversions is in red-hot demand,” said Mr Smith, who sold the property on behalf of the Hatzopoulos family.

The property provides approximately 430 square metres over the three levels, with the ground floor retail shop currently vacant. The ground floor space also comes with a large double lock-up garage of approximately 30 square metres that can be accessed via a rear lane.

The first and second floors of approximately 160 square metres each are leased to monthly tenants including a dance school – Majestic Performing Arts – and a private music school.
