The Bar Beach end of Parkway Avenue is considered blue-chip Newcastle real estate and interest is expected to be strong for a property there that has been in the same family for around 70 years.
A three-bedroom home on a corner block around 900 square metres in size at 31 Parkway Avenue that also has frontage to Brooks Street has been listed for sale with a guide of $3.2 million. All proceeds from the sale will go to several undisclosed charities.
The home was built in the 1940s for Frederick and Winifred Woodcock, of timber merchants Earp, Woodcock and Beveridge. In the mid 70s the timber business was purchased by BBC Hardware which eventually became Bunnings.
Their daughter Shelia, who was well-known in the Newcastle musical theatre scene in the 50s and 60s, then owned the home until her passing.
The property is being marketed by PRDnationwide Newcastle and Lake Macquarie's Chasse Ede and Mark Kentwell and is set for auction on July 10.
Mr Ede reported 36 groups through the first open house last weekend and said interest was coming from local buyers as well as developers with the property having an R3 Medium Density residential zoning. It is open for inspection Saturday at 12pm.
