Silence as history under the hammer

THE auction of an historical home on Locke St drew a dozen people to the shade on the property's front lawn at the weekend, but no one was willing to meet the owner's price.

The property at 30A Locke St, dubbed Clare Villa, is currently presented as two units.

Elders auctioneer George McVeigh led the auction from the property's veranda.

"This is a good opportunity," Mr McVeigh said.

"It is a lovely old Queenslander. Beautiful opportunity. Just look at the location - it is close to the city."

The onlookers remained silent, with no one making a bid.

Mr McVeigh once again highlighted the property's advantages.

One lady made an offer of $150,000.

"I am going to reject that bid," Mr McVeigh said.

"I respect the bid but it needs to be higher than that."

The Elders team then ducked inside to consult with the owners.

When the team emerged Mr McVeigh once again called for a "reasonable bid" but none was given.

Phone Elders agent Rachel Williams on 0428 255 690 for more information.
