“The freehold tenure of the house at Lilac Road makes it an attractive proposition for landed home buyers who are keen to acquire a freehold asset. The subject property is also primed for redevelopment into a 3½-storey property, and it sits on a sizeable land area of 4,731 sq ft with a wide street frontage of about 13m,” says Tan, adding that the house also features a generous outdoor area with a good-sized garden and a spacious porch area suitable for outdoor entertaining.
Given these attributes, Tan expects the property to appeal to homeowners looking for a freehold home for their family, or boutique developers with a keen eye for properties with redevelopment potential.
