The property is being promoted as an ‘outstanding opportunity to purchase prime vacant land’.
Edward Hobbs, a director at Biggin and Scott Richmond, believes the eventual buyer is likely to build two townhouses or a large house, subject to council approval, at the address.
‘Location is king,’ he said.
A number of developers have already reportedly tabled their interest in the vacant block ahead of auction on Saturday.
