A TWO-STOREY good class bungalow (GCB) at 18A Yarwood Avenue is set to go up for sale via auction next week with a guide price of S$23 million, marketing agent Knight Frank Singapore said on Friday.

The guide price works out to S$1216 per square foot, based on a land area of 18,911 square feet (sq ft). It is an owner's sale.

The 999-year leasehold property is located in Kilburn Estate. The resort-like, Balinese-styled home has a floor area of 8,956 sq ft, and a car porch and sheltered terraces totalling 678 sq ft, said Knight Frank.

The property also has a basement, swimming pool, landscaped garden and koi pond.

Sharon Lee, head of auction and sales at Knight Frank Singapore, said: "The property at 18A Yarwood Avenue has an accessible price point for a GCB of its calibre and is within reach for those looking to live in a home that is limited in supply.

"It is also located within walking distance to King Albert Park MRT station, with amenities such as a movie theatre, dining options and a supermarket conveniently situated at KAP Shopping Mall and Bukit Timah Plaza."

Successful sales of properties along the same stretch include a home at 19 Yarwood Avenue, which sold for S$22.15 million in February this year and 21B Yarwood Avenue, which transacted for S$19.4 million in March 2018, said Knight Frank. The properties sat on land areas of 19,030 sq ft and 16,156 sq ft respectively.
