A real estate agent in Griffith, NSW, has a unique offering in the city's local cemetery: "Brick-built, with a tiled roof and plenty of room for the extended family. It reads like a description for a suburban bungalow but in the case of this property, the agent is calling for long-term investors only."
The 12-vault mausoleum in Griffith Cemetery, on the corner Wakaden Street and Blumer Avenue in Griffith, in the NSW Riverina region, is on the market with a price tag of $160,000 and is being offered with vacant possession.
Agent Charlie Rovere, of Ray White Griffith, said the mausoleum was built about two decades ago by a local family who had since outgrown it.
“The family that built it, their family has grown dramatically and they’ve built a new one that has 36 vaults in it,” he said, adding that all coffins had been relocated to the new structure.
He estimated that to build a similar 12-vault mausoleum today would cost upwards of $300,000.
“It just looks like a little house, brick and tiled roof,” Mr Rovere said, adding that materials used included marble.
Other than the 12 vaults, the property features an entry foyer, with a lockable front door.
