This house is much more than a large family home, it is a piece of history with 2 homes on the block and a flat underneath the main house. It’s an income. This is one of the original homes of Brisbane, once inhabited by nuns, but probably goes back further than that to the original land owner and his gardeners and cooks.
The Colonial Queenslander home has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large living areas and kitchen all on 1,146m2 of LMR land.
It’s loaded with original features such as double sided fire-place servicing the kitchen, the lounge and the downstairs flat. Beautiful wide pine floor-boards, wide hallways, high ceilings and verandahs and decks galore.
The flat downstairs has 2 bedrooms and plenty of space. And a 3 bedroom Bungalow in the backyard would bring in a good income or you could just use it for unexpected guests. It would probably have been for the servants, the cooks, or the gardeners, when the nuns were living in the big house.
The house could rent for about $600 pw – the flat is getting $250 pw and has been for the last 13 years. And the servants quarters, or the bungalow, has rented for $350 pw. That’s $1200 per week. for a rental, or $600.00pw extra if you live in the house.
The home is only a short walk to Annerley shopping centre including a new Woolworths. A bus stop at the door, what more would you need?
