NSW govt to auction off nine more Millers Point properties

Nine more properties in Sydney's Millers Point have been put up for sale through auction by the NSW government to fund its social housing programme.

Last week, the government auctioned off 12 properties for $32.85 million, taking the total to $182.73 million from 70 properties sold to date in Millers Point.

Proceeds from the sale will fund 1,500 new dwellings across the state, with 590 new, fit-for-purpose social housing dwellings funded to date.

Government Property NSW, on behalf of Family and Community Services, announced the move on Monday. The properties will be marketed by McGrath Estate Agents and will be auctioned on May 4.

The properties are: 

9 Lower Fort Street (left) – an eight-bedroom, four-bathroom residence within the Milton Terrace group.

13 Lower Fort Street – a six-bedroom, two bathroom dwelling, also part of Milton Terrace.

35 Lower Fort Street – a six-bedroom, three bathroom residence known as Major House.

47 Lower Fort Street – a five-bedroom, two bathroom property in a row of four Italianate-style terraces, built in the mid-1880s.

42 Argyle Place (below) – a four-bedroom, two bathroom property constructed in the late 1880s

54 Kent Street – a three-bedroom, one bathroom residence, originally owned by local shipwright, William Rowe.

60 Kent Street – a three-bedroom, one bathroom residence, originally built for Thomas Hely, son of a local shipwright.

62 Kent Street – a three-bedroom, one bathroom residence, also owned by Thomas Hely.

73 Kent Street – a four-bedroom, three bathroom property built in the mid-1870s.

Each heritage-listed property includes a Conservation Management Plan endorsed by the NSW Heritage Council in the contract for sale, which are meant to ensure new owners are fully informed of their responsibilities when purchasing a heritage property.
