Deceased Estate Auction – Character Queenslander on 607m2 In Prestigious Schools Precinct
AUCTION HAS NOW BEEN BOUGHT FORWARD TO 9 SEPTEMBER 2PM ON-SITE
Presenting an opportunity to enter the popular Toowong market, this untouched character home is in need of some care and attention to restore it back to its former glory. For builders and experienced renovators, explore the options and possibilities available to thoroughly refurbish the existing structure, add a contemporary extension or build in under, STCA, and set about remodelling this home into something very special.
Located opposite the Brisbane Boys’ College sports fields and only a short walk away from the Queensland Academy for Maths, Science and Technology, this end of Miskin Street is a great spot for families with school aged children.
Parklands, a community run organic food garden and recreation facilities are close at hand, as is public transport, with bus stops nearby to take you to central Toowong, with its exciting future planned Aviary lifestyle and retail development, Toowong train station, the CBD and UQ.
This elevated, single gabled Queenslander with its imposing central staircase entry, exposed framework, French doors and wide two-sided verandah to the south and west facing walls, would have been quite a standout in its day.
Traditional interior features abound, with timber floors, VJ wall linings and classic high ceilings. All bedrooms, dining and living areas are located on one level, opening to the backyard. Situated on a corner, with a quiet laneway wrapping around two sides of the treed allotment, the home is private, having only one adjoining neighbour.
A two-minute walk will take you to one of Brisbane’s finest French inspired restaurants, 85 Miskin Street, a dining treasure in the middle of this leafy suburb.
With so many large-scale renovations to classic homes being undertaken in Toowong and the infrastructure laden inner-west, owners are reaping the rewards in capital growth now, and will continue to do so in the years to come.
