A mixed-use childcare centre in Melbourne's Doreen has fetched $15 million.

It ranks as Australia’s largest childcare centre sale for 2018.

Savills Australia’s Clinton Baxter, Jesse Radisich and Benson Zhou brokered the deal for the 2,780 sqm property at the corner of Painted Hills Road and hazel Glen Drive at a yield of 5.8 per cent.

“The sale of this landmark retail and childcare asset demonstrates the strong market appetite for premium property generating solid income in growth locations,” Mr Baxter said.

The three-level asset situated at 59 Painted Hills Road, attracted more than 135 registered parties.

It includes early learning centre, Guardian Childcare, seven ground-level retail shops, and undercover parking for 66 cars.

“Buyers were attracted to the brand new asset, completed in early 2018, underpinned by a large, fully enrolled Guardian Childcare centre and in one of Melbourne’s primary growth corridors,” Mr Baxter said.

The complex generates a net rental total of $871,324 per annum and is fully leased.

Tenants include Fletchers Real Estate and 12 Round Fitness, all with long-term leases in place and fixed annual rental growth.

”The recent opening of the Mernda Rail extension and extensive housing estate developments has provided a huge boost to the local area, providing investors with the opportunity to capitalise on one of Melbourne’s growth hot spots,” Mr Baxter said.

"The property was purchased by a Singaporean investor with a local partner, demonstrating that off-shore money continues to flow into the Melbourne market in abundance,” Mr Radisich concluded.
