Grange prepares for biggest sale of the year

The largest homesite in Grange will go to auction on Saturday.

Multimillion-dollar prestige Grange homes are flooding the market with four of the suburb’s top properties listing in the past month.

Two have sold, both breaking the previous suburb record, with local builder Scott Clements selling his Daisy St home at auction on Saturday for $3.855m.


9 Daisy St, Grange sold for $3.855m on Saturday in a 75-minute auction marathon.

While the offmarket sale of 11 Newton St fetched $4.05m in April, snatching the suburb record from 79 Montpelier St that had stood for eight years.

11 Newton St, Grange sold for $4.05m on April 22, data shows.

But Brisbane property developer Scott Flynn, who picked up the British Trade Commissioner’s former lodgings in Hamilton for $9m in December, is now selling his Grange home of eight years at 79 Montpelier St, in what could be the biggest sale of the year for the north Brisbane suburb.

The landmark estate at 79 Montpelier st, Grange.

“Irreplaceable” is how Mr Flynn describes 79 Montpelier St, Grange, which sits on the largest block in the suburb.

The 2239sq m property set the suburb record in 2014 when Scott and Sacha Flynn paid $3.85m for the renovated home.

The main kitchen has been updated and is ideally positioned for dining and entertaining.

The property features a gabled, five-bedroom house on an elevated block with city views. It has a rare 50m street frontage, a tennis court and a swimming pool.

Tennis anyone?

The house itself had been renovated before the Scotts moved in and they have maintained it since then.

The sheltered veranda makes outdoor entertaining possible no matter what the weather is doing.

Scott Flynn is a former auctioneer who now runs his own development company, Scott Flynn Properties. He won a national award for his work with Brisbane Airport Hotels Group, including the construction of Brisbane Airport’s first five-star hotel, the Pullman Brisbane Airport.

Ray White Ascot’s Damon Warat oversaw the auction of the Hamilton estate just before Christmas and he is partnering with Ray White Wilston’s Alistair Macmillan on the sale of 79 Montpelier St, Grange, which goes to auction on Saturday at 10am.
