The De Angelis Hotel Group has purchased the Uncle Buck's Hotel in Mount Druitt for $25.3 million.

CBRE’s Daniel Dragicevich and Sam Handy negotiated the sale on behalf of ASX listed Lantern Hotels Group. Lantern advised that the sale price represented a 30.5 percent premium on the 30 June 2016 book value.

The 5,640sqm site offers future mixed used redevelopment potential underpinned by B4 mixed-use zoning and 32m building height approval.

The hotel features a 24-hour liquor licence with ‘early opener’ flexibility, and 27 gaming machines.

Dragicevich said Uncle Bucks offers all the core trading attributes of a top 50 gaming pub.

“Assets such as this are seldom publicly offered to market, which contributed to a keenly contested process which yielded an exchange of contracts some four days prior to the scheduled close of the campaign," he said.

“The availability of Sydney’s AAA gaming pubs is rapidly diminishing, with only a small pool of these assets remaining under private individual ownership and seemingly available for acquisition in the foreseeable future. Genuine market buoyancy at the top end is being driven by this undersupply, in combination with robust trading conditions, improved debt liquidity and a low interest rate environment."
