Bidding tussle for post war house with bay view

first_imgThe home at 27 Petersen St, Wynnum.A  POST war home with bay views has sold under the hammer in Wynnum. Nina Adams of Century 21 Adams and Costello said the property at 27 Petersen St sold for $696,000 after a “short and sweet” auction on June 10. “There was a good crowd of about 60-odd people and there were four registered bidders,” she said. The auction began with an opening bid of $600,000. Three of the registered bidders actively vied for the two-bedroom home and the property was called on the market at $685,000. Ms Adams said there was a “bit of a tussle” towards the end between bidders but it was a local buyer who proved successful.

We’ve recently sold several properties under $500,000 quite quickly. “Buyers are mainly people looking for a house to live in. The lifestyle (on offer in Wynnum) is the big attraction.”last_img read more

€1m childcare centre closes in Gortahork

first_imgA state-of-the-art creche in Gortahork is due to close this morning for the last time.An Scoil Bheag opened its doors just ten years ago following a €1m grant from the Equal Opportunities Childcare Programme. An Scoil Bheag provided affordable childcare for adults completing Donegal ETB courses in the area.Donegal ETB has cited a lack of demand as the reason for the closure. Recent legislation such as the Affordable Childcare Scheme has led to a reduction in demand for Donegal ETB creche places. Donegal ETB have said that “no final decision” has been made on three other Donegal ETB creches in the county; Buncrana, Milford and Letterkenny.In a statement to Donegal Daily, Donegal ETB said: “Donegal ETB is currently reviewing the crèche provision attached to its Further Education and Training service.“Recent legislative changes have resulted in increased numbers of crèche places being made available more widely across the county, leading to a reduction in demand for ETB crèche places.“Regretfully, the crèche attached to the Gort a’ Choirce ETB Further Education and Training Centre will close on 17 November 2017 but no final decision has been reached as yet regarding the future of the crèches in Buncrana, Milford and Letterkenny.” €1m childcare centre closes in Gortahork was last modified: November 17th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:an scoil bheaggortahorklast_img read more
