A four-bedroom period home on a large block in central Warrnambool, to be auctioned this month, combines all the elements buyers are looking for.
Harris & Wood Real Estate agent Danny Harris said 25 Howard Street was a unique property and had attracted strong interest, with 45 interested parties viewing the home.
He said it was rare to find such an elegant, renovated period home, in a central location, on a large 1300 square-metre block, with a pool and additional sheds.
"It's a bit of a rare mix to get all of the above," Mr Harris said. "You've got something that's got a bit of size about it, both land wise and house wise. There's the pool, extra shedding, in the CBD.
"It's not a common mix. You can find those things in isolation in a lot of different properties but not all in one. That's why we've seen the interest we have."

Mr Harris said there was local interest, as well as strong interest from Melbourne buyers looking to relocate and couples from rural areas, wanting to retire in Warrnambool.
The home has a price guide of $1.35 million to $1.4 million and will be auctioned on-site on November 20 at noon.
Another central home to go under the hammer on the same day is 90 Koroit Street. Mr Harris said it was "in a cracking location" on the corner of Koroit and Banyan streets and had a price guide of $560,000 to $600,000.
Mr Harris said the three-bedroom property had a north-facing yard and could be rented in its current state or renovated. "It's got a bit of that inner-city Melbourne feel to it," he said.
