Freehold corner terraced house on Sixth Avenue going for $6.58 mil

SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A freehold house at the corner of Lily Avenue and Sixth Avenue in prime District 10 was offered at PropNex Realty’s private property auction on Aug 29. The two-storey terraced house sits on a 4,593 sq ft plot and has a built-up area of 1,884 sq ft.
It has a guide price of $6.58 million, or $1,432 psf on the land area. It was the first time the house was offered at an auction, and this was an estate sale, says Leonard Lee, associate group director (auction services) at PropNex Realty.
The property is located in a two-storey mixed landed estate off Bukit Timah Road, and is between the Good Class Bungalow areas of Fourth/Sixth Avenue and Garlick Avenue. The property is primed for redevelopment and could be transformed into a 2½-storey corner terraced house, says Lee.

The 3,821 sq ft, freehold house changed hands for $6.1 million ($1,595 psf) in January this year. Another 4,166 sq ft house at Lasia Avenue was sold for $7.3 million ($1,752 psf) in June last year.
The terraced house is likely to attract wealthy homeowners who are looking for a plot of land to build a house that suits their taste and requirements, says Lee. This is a “unique buying opportunity”, he says, because Singapore’s landed housing stock comprises just over 5%...
