The home of the Fratelle hair salon, has sold for $2.4 million under the hammer.

It transacted at a tight 5.2% yield on behalf of a local family who owned the asset for almost 30 years.

Chris Kombi and Chris James, of Fitzroys real estate, sold the property.

Kombi said the fierce competition between five investors at auction pushed the sale price well beyond reserve, while the building rate of $11,428 per square metre was remarkably high for a strata-titled retail property in the area.

A local investor purchased the property for their self-manager super fund.

The 210 square metre fully self-contained premises is securely leased to Rokk Ebony Properties Pty Ltd on a 10+5+5-year deal with a return of $125,200 per annum.

The triple-fronted property is positioned at the front of Wheelers Hill Shopping Centre, with 38 metres of corner frontage to the car park and Jells Road, plus an additional 9-metre frontage inside the shopping centre.

The hair salon trading as Fratelle has operated within Wheelers Hill Shopping Centre for over 26 years.

Wheelers Hill Shopping Centre comprises 40 retail operators and is anchored by Woolworths Supermarket, with other tenants including Bakers Delight, National Pharmacy, BWS, Bottle-O, Nando’s, Domino’s, Tatts and Australia Post.
