FOR more than 25 years, Ronald McDonald House in Subiaco has provided a valuable service to families who needed to travel far from home to obtain specialist medical care for their children.
Following its relocation to new premises in Nedlands, the properties in Subiaco will be auctioned in November.
Acton Central licensed auctioneer Boyd Fraser said he was looking forward to the auction .
“We are having a great deal of success with auctions, they get the best possible price in the shortest time frame, and this is a very exciting opportunity to get an outstanding result for the seller,” he said.
“It’s one of the most unique properties I’ve seen in the area and it’s going to be one of the biggest auctions I’ve done in my career.”
The auction will include 15 Hamilton Street, Subiaco, with six bedrooms, six bathrooms, five car bays, a central courtyard, separate laundry and storeroom on an 800sq m block.
A second property, at 16-20 York Street, Subiaco has 14 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, parking for 11 cars, multiple kitchen facilities, offices, living rooms, courtyards and disabled lift access on a 965sq m block.
There is a right of way between the two properties.
They are strategically located next to Princess Margaret Hospital, and have great access to cafes, restaurants, medical facilities and public transport.
Mr Fraser said the sites could have a range of uses, subject to council approval, and would primarily appeal to a developer.
“The land is in a prime position and zoned R50 so you could build multiple dwellings, such as a small apartment complex or townhouses,” he said.
“Another option would be for someone looking to tap into the market and provide accommodation, such as a nursing home, retirement home, or even child care.
“There is a shortage of these facilities in the local area and it would be a great opportunity to explore.”
