“They are looking to potentially develop it, it’s going to be up to the council but you could put a unit in the back or extend it,” Mr Casey said.

“This result goes to show how impressive Newcomb is in the market place at the moment.”

The 609sq m property is on a corner block and is zoned Residential Growth Zone Schedule 2.

The renovated house has two bedrooms, timber floorboards in the open-plan living area and it has been restumped and rewired.
