Lot F Bonville St in Coffs Harbour is for sale.


A property not much wider than a typical footpath has come up for sale on the outskirts of Coffs Harbour.

Measuring only 2.69m wide, the block on Bonville St is too small to fit a car past the gate and even a cricket pitch is wider.

With no street number and dwarfed by two apartment complexes, Lot 4 is for sale via private treaty with a $69,000 guide.

It is on the market after selling earlier this year for $9500 to a company that specialises in odd landholdings that typically have unpaid rates such as the $8000 owing on this one.

The property is barely visible from Google Maps.


The listing ad said the 144sqm block is “more accurately described as a laneway” and has dual street frontage with Bonville St and Renshaw Ln. Despite having no building entitlements, it has R4 High Density Residential Zoning that allows for apartment blocks.

The block is also fully fenced in on three sides and has a small gated entry facing Bonville St.

@realty agent Mark Killian said it will sell despite him being unsure as to what any buyer would use it for.

It is 50m long and 2.69m wide.


“I’ve sold a few unusual listings like this and they always sell because everything is worth something to someone,” he said.

“The only real purpose it serves is for a buyer looking to store something,” he said.

Mr Killian said he has already fielded inquires from a number of parties including as far as the United Kingdom.

“The guy from the UK wanted the block to build a cubby house because that is what they do in lanes there,” he said.

“I had to explain to him that this is not the typical lane you would find in Sydney or Melbourne.”

It is listed with a $69,000 guide via private treaty.


The real estate agent said other properties he has sold that are similar to Bonville St have mostly been used for storage.

“A 200sqm block in Pillar Valley with barely any street frontage was snapped up by a kayak club who wanted somewhere to store their kayaks when they visit,” he said.

While no one is sure how Lot 4 became a “no man’s land” between 27-29 Bonville St and 31 Bonville St, Mr Killian said it might serve some use to a developer in the future.

“If the land behind this is ever developed, a developer might want the block for access,” he said.
