Conveniently located close to shops and the city centre, and home to some gracious period homes, Avondale Avenue has cemented its reputation as one of East Lismore's most desirable streets with the sale of No. 30 last week for an impressive $960,000.

Framed by a white picket fence and with winding paved pathways and old-world gardens, the house has been modernised but retains period features including 11-foot decorative ceilings and original floorboards in the lounge.

It also includes an air conditioned studio with lounge/ kitchenette/ bedroom/ensuite and office nook.

Vicki Heathwood of LJ Hooker Alstonville made the sale, which sets a new record for the street - No. 85 sold in July last year for $800,000.
