Will the Chinese lucky number eight help sell this house at 6 White Cedar Circuit, Stretton?

INTERSTATE buyers have flown in to view this exclusive Stretton residence that is steeped in Chinese numerology, ahead of Saturday’s auction.

The original builder had the lucky number 888 emblazoned across the front fence of 6 White Cedar Circuit, Stretton and it has become a prominent feature in the exclusive Parks estate.

The number 8 is the luckiest number in Chinese culture.

Beyond the single digit, a triple eight means triple the fortune and addresses bearing the number are held in high regard.

Place Sunnybank agent Jonathan Law said the property has been very popular with Asian buyers, with local Chinese buyers making up around half of all enquiries.

“The second highest interest has come from interstate,” Mr Law said.

“Two buyers from Melbourne flew over to look at the sale.”


The two-storey property on a 700sq m corner block is close to transport, local schools, and across the road from Min-Shan Park.

“The 888 means wealth, a wealth complex, and everyone likes to live in this area,” Mr Law said.

“What is also special about this home, is it is one of the few that has a drive-in, drive-out driveway, so you can park at the front of the house or in the garage.”

It’s street address also holds significance in Chinese culture, with the number six linked with success.

“The number six means to be successful with no hardship in the middle,” Mr Law said.

The house has five bedrooms upstairs and a study or sixth bedroom downstairs.

The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and large ensuite with a spa bath.

There is a separate theatre, formal lounge and dining rooms and a large living area off the kitchen.

The cinema room has surround sound.

The outside patio has an outdoor pizza oven and looks over an inground pool.

Ducted airconditioning has been added and the new chandelier in the entry foyer was made in Germany.

“It has been a partial holiday home for the owners,” Mr Law said of the current owners who both own educational institutions and are relocating to the Gold Coast.

Almost 50 groups have viewed the home ahead of Saturday’s 3pm auction.

But the high interest from Chinese buyers comes with its own mystery.

“They don’t let you know what they’re going to do,” he said.
