Photo: MARK CALLEJAAfter some negotiations, the highest bidder increased their bid to $1.32 million and the property was called on the market and sold. The new owners, a couple with a young child, placed the second bid at the auction and were determined to have the last word. The couple said they loved the location, the high end design and finish of the property and the modern layout. “I can’t wait to buy furniture and move in,” the woman said. The home at 41 Chartwell St, Aspley sold under the hammer.The sale also smashed the previous Chartwell Street record of $785,000. The French provincial style home was built in 2009 with six bedrooms and three bathrooms across two levels. The property has city views and is on a block with landscaped gardens, wrought iron fencing and an inground swimming pool. Marketing agent Sonya Treloar of Ray White Bridgeman Downs said the “full on” auction attracted five registered bidders and a crowd of more than 50 people. An opening bid of $980,000 kicked off the action and fast-paced bidding saw the price quickly rise to $1.2 million. From there, bids increased in increments of $50,000, then $20,000 and finally $10,000 until the auction stalled at $1.4 million. The open-plan living area at 54 Edith St, Alderley.Marketing agent Matthew Jabs of Place Newmarket said the vendors were “over the moon” with the sale price. “It was a big sale in the area,” he said. “We had about 200 people inspect (the home) and a lot of that was on the back of the quality of the house. “The (vendor) who built it has gone to that next level and it is really well finished.”Mr Jabs said buyers looking at the property were mostly owner-occupiers and nearly all bidders were families.

PHOTO: Mark CallejaTWO street records have fallen as 153 homes went under the hammer in Brisbane this week. In Alderley, a crowd of more than 100 gathered to watch the Hamptons-style home at 54 Edith St sell for $1.32 million at auction on May 27. The sale broke the previous street record of $935,000, which was set when the same address, then a rundown house on a double block, sold in April last year. The auction of the new and improved 54 Edith St attracted 15 registered bidders. An opening bid of $850,000 got things started and within five minutes five buyers placed 22 bids to see the price sitting at $1.31 million. At that point, auctioneer Peter Burgin paused the auction to seek vendor instructions. The home at 30 Donald St, Camp Hill is still up for grabs after being passed in at auction.The nine-year-old property has six bedrooms, three bathroom and a host of high end extras, including pool, fire place and gourmet kitchen, across three levels. The auction started with an opening bid of $900,000 and paused after a vendor bid of $1 million. Despite negotiations, the sole active bidder and vendor couldn’t come to an agreement and the property was passed in at $1.3 million. Marketing agent Steven Gow of Ray White Bulimba said he expected the home to sell in the next couple of weeks. “We had good interest from buyers (wanting to make offers) outside of auction conditions,” he said. “We had approximately 25 groups through, so it was a steady campaign in terms of interest.”last_img read more

Anichebe – Jelavic needed a rest

first_imgEverton striker Victor Anichebe believes he has learned greatly from fellow forward Nikica Jelavic, but sees no irony in the fact he has replaced the Croatian in the team. Manager David Moyes said Anichebe has earned his place on merit – and his fifth goal in eight league starts in the 3-3 draw against Aston Villa on Saturday appeared to back that up – as Jelavic has lost his way in front of goal with his last top-flight goal almost two months ago. But Anichebe said: “I wouldn’t look too far into him not playing. Nikica has been unbelievable since he came to us and his record speaks for itself (18 goals in 45 appearances).” He added: “I was injured for two months and he took the burden on his own and he has been playing on his own every game. There comes a time when you have to take him out because he is pretty tired but the best of him will come. He has been playing for a long time on his own. Now I am back it is probably good time to give him a rest. “I talk to him all the time and some of the positions I am getting into is because of him, he has helped me get into more goalscoring positions. “We can play together. If he doesn’t play, if I don’t play, it is not a big deal.” Moyes believes Anichebe’s form is down to improved self-belief. “I think there have been a lot of times when Victor has been questioned and maybe even our faith in him at times,” he said. “But I hope he has seen we always believed there was a really good player in there if we could get it out of him. “He has been needing support from the crowd because for a long time I think he was probably believing they weren’t behind him or didn’t value him as a player and maybe some of the things he has done on the pitch you wouldn’t have (done so). “But we have tried to keep with him and work with him and he made a big contribution, scoring a goal, was a threat and was challenging high up the pitch. He is doing really well for us at the moment. We have brought him in and given Jela a breather and I think Victor is deservedly playing up front at the moment by how he is doing.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Bruce out to emulate Stoke

first_img Goalkeeper Allan McGregor, whose error led to Lokeren’s winner on Thursday, is the Tigers’ only fitness concern for Sunday’s encounter after he picked up a shoulder injury. “To get back-to-back wins in the Premier League would be great. I don’t think we’ve done that for about a year so it shows how hard it is,” said Bruce. He is expected to make wholesale changes but is without the suspended Yannick Sagbo and Robert Snograss, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a dislocated knee. They miss out as Marc Wilson insists Stoke must recover from their opening-day defeat to Aston Villa. The defender admitted the disappointment from the 1-0 home reverse hit the side hard after Andreas Weimann’s winner stole the points for the visitors. Stoke are expected to do well in the top flight this season and Wilson knows they cannot afford a hangover. “It was a set-back for us, and we are all still hurting from the result,” Wilson told Stoke City Player. “We just weren’t able to hit the levels we hit last season (which finished with Stoke in ninth, the club’s record-high Premier League final position), both as a team and on a personal level, and that was frustrating. “We had come through a good pre-season, added a number of new players to the squad and we were really expecting to start the season better than we did. “For us to have produced the kind of performance that we did was a real kick in the stomach to be honest. “It’s a disappointment we are determined to bounce straight back from however, and we have a real chance of doing that against Hull. “We know that we need to be better, and we know that we have to learn from the mistakes we made last weekend. We are itching to get those three points on the board.” Stoke are without Stephen Ireland, who suffered a chest injury in training to rule him out for at least two weeks but United States defender Geoff Cameron and Nigeria striker Peter Odemwingie are available after their extended break following the World Cup. Hughes is confident Robert Huth will be available, despite the defender feeling a slight twinge in his knee while over-stretching. Victor Moses could make his debut after his season-long loan move from Chelsea with Hughes deciding whether the Nigeria forward will be fit enough after a lack of game time in pre-season. Dionatan Teixeira, Andy Wilkinson, Ryan Shotton, Wilson Palacios and Brek Shea were also absent last week with Palacios linked with Villa and Derby interested in Shotton. Press Association Hull’s stay lasted only two seasons but they returned last term and Bruce – who has had two bids for Blackburn’s Jordan Rhodes rejected this week – hopes to achieve similar success to that enjoyed at the Britannia Stadium. “This club went up with Stoke in 2008, and they’ve been there ever since,” he told the Tigers’ official website. “That shows how they’ve progressed and what they’ve done in those years. That has to be my aim, to copy something like Stoke. “They have a nucleus of some very good players. Mark Hughes is changing the way they want to play and they are a good side.” The game comes three days after Hull lost the first leg of their Europa League qualifying play-off tie 1-0 against Lokeren in Belgium. Bruce is confident the Tigers will shrug off that disappointment and avoid a Europa League hangover that has afflicted many English sides competing in the competition in past campaigns. He added: “Stoke have had all week to prepare and that is an advantage. We haven’t had the chance to do any preparation work. We recovered from Thursday on Friday and we’ll do some preparation on Saturday. “I made nine changes on Thursday night, so hopefully we’ll be fresh enough to get the three points that we need.” Steve Bruce wants Hull to use Stoke’s blueprint for their own success in the Barclays Premier League. The Tigers host the Potters on Sunday with manager Bruce hoping to build on last season’s 16th placed finish. Both sides were promoted to the Premier League in 2008 but the Potters have stayed in England’s top tier ever since – reaching Europe after being beaten FA Cup finalists in 2011. last_img read more

SU looks to avenge past Army loss, win 10th straight match

first_img Comments Could have. Should have. Would have.As Christina Tan recalls, that was the feeling of the Syracuse tennis team after last year’s loss to Army. But this year, Tan feels, should be different. Instead of the 12-5 record the team had this week last year, SU currently boasts a 15-2 record. It hasn’t lost any of its last nine games, a streak that has lasted more than a month. Last year, the team lost close matches. This year, thanks to the new depth of the roster, Tan does not expect the same to happen down the stretch. And it starts with that rematch against Army.‘It came down to the last few matches, and this year with us being a lot deeper and everyone being a lot better, it’ll be close, but I think we’ll beat (Army),’ Tan said.In just one year, the team has improved significantly thanks to that depth. There is no petering off in head coach Luke Jensen’s singles team. He said it is solid across the board. In addition to retaining four of last year’s starters, he added two of what he refers to as ‘big kahunas’ to the lineup.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I think the biggest thing is that you’ve got Eleanor Peters and CC Sardinha, who are world-ranked players,’ Jensen said. ‘These are people who have come off playing the (World Tennis Association) tour and who bring so much more depth and experience to the team we had last year.’It is this balanced roster that will help the Orange in its match against Army (17-6) Wednesday, a match it lost 5-2 last year. Tan, the co-captain, said that not only have the new players added to the team, but the returning players have improved and become more aggressive. Tan, who played No. 2 singles last year, has been playing No. 5 singles this year. And Jensen believes it is a testament to the quality of play of returners and newcomers alike. Particularly because so many of the opponents the team will face tomorrow have never competed against Syracuse before, Kalhorn expects Army will play a lot of defense. SU has an attacking style of play and with it, will look to take advantage of the Army inexperience.‘I feel like they’ll try to play a lot of defense,’ junior Simone Kalhorn said, ‘which is good for us. That’s what we want.’Kalhorn thinks Syracuse’s aggression has been particularly evident going into the match because the team lost a tight game last year. SU is looking to prove itself. Kalhorn said that the normally high-energy and high-volume team will be even more pumped up to face the Black Knights again. And Jensen and his coaching staff are looking forward to the rematch as much as the players are.Another advantage the Orange hopes to have thanks to its depth is the winning streak it is currently on. Syracuse was coming off a loss to Rutgers when it played Army last year.This year, the consistency of play and wins has inspired increased sureness in the players. Although the team says it does not prepare any differently because of its recent success, the victories are apparent. It’s obvious in the attitude.‘It’s good because we’re coming in with a lot of confidence,’ Jensen said. ‘This team doesn’t think they can lose. This team believes in everyone on the lineup.’This confidence in the face of Army is not unfounded. SU has beaten all the opponents the two teams have in common. Army has lost to three of the seven. One of the Orange’s losses this year came against No. 8 Michigan. The other was to a Princeton (14-5) team that was in the polls earlier this year. Rutgers — the only team the Orange lost to last year that is has played so far this year — was unable to repeat its victory over the Orange in 2010. SU swept them 7-0.Jensen cannot guarantee a victory. But he has faith in his team. And with this winning streak it begs the question: Why shouldn’t he? He is confident that all his players, regardless of seed, will have the advantage against Army.With a roster led by his ‘big kahunas’ and supported by veterans, Jensen challenges the Black Knights to do their worst.‘Look at the quality of player that we have,’ Jensen said. ‘It’s the depth. When you have Christina Tan, Simone Kalhorn and Alessondra Parra at four, five and six, good luck. Those are the bottom of our top six. What do you got? You’ve got three people that were there last year with three newbies. Good luck. Here we come.’alguggen@syr.edu Published on March 30, 2010 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
