It's catching!

It seems that after the recent almost-a-million-dollar sale, others want to get in on the act:

Number 21 Sproxton Lane has gone on the market at $900,000. It was on the market last year - see [here] - but didn't find a buyer. It last sold in 2001 for $288,250.

It used to belong to my old friend Tony Finsterer who first got me interested in Nelligen - see [here].

The property next to it, Number 19, set a record in 2006 when it sold for $925,000.

Well, there's still money around: the house up the lane sold for $970,000! People from Canberra bought it as their weekender!

That's almost a million dollars for a property of 1,500m² - or is it 1,800m²? - which makes Riverbend's seven-plus acres (approx. 30,000m²) look very cheap even at twice the price.

The selling agents were First National Real Estate in the Bay. Maybe I should talk to them?

One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind

This weekend I learned, rather belatedly, something about the birds and the bees - well, bees mainly - as I watched hobby-apiatrist Dimitri (known to his friends as Jim because he's crazy!) got a buzz out of robbing his 20,000-plus bees of their labouriously collected honey.
