This is one of of those rare opportunities to score a heritage home on a massive block in an awesome street filled with other awesome heritage homes.
We all know the Ipswich streets famous for their heritage homes. Woodend Road, Quarry Street, York Street, Murphy Street, the list goes on, but a little known street in Brassall called Shelley Street is a hidden gem. When you think of Brassall, heritage homes don't normally spring to mind, but Brassall has some of Ipswich's best character homes. Originally called Hungry Flats (No, not Hungry Jacks) Brassall was mostly farming and some of the original old farm houses still exist. This home was owned by the Shelley family who the street was named after making it own of the oldest in the street.
The street is not free from drama though. During my research into the history of this home, I came across a disturbing article from 1922, when a young boy named Norman Meggitt, tripped over a dog while running and cut his knee. Ambulance bearers were summoned and he was taken to Ipswich Hospital for treatment. WOW! Obviously a quiet news day in 1922. Anyway, back to the house, which is why you're reading this.
The current owners have lived here since the 1970's and apart from a few things like new kitchen, double garage shed and air con etc, the place is virtually untouched. The rooms that have 1960's lino on the floor have the original 1920s lino under that. And who knows what under that?
This home would have had wider than normal verandahs on the front, back and side. And speaking of verandahs, the front that was built-in in the 70's still have the original posts. So to turn it back to a verandah, all you have to do is take out the glass and put the railings back in. Easy Peasy.
The yard is huge. 1518m2! yep, thats not a typo. Do I hear subdivisions ? Also in the yard is double car garage with power. Do I hear Man Cave?
If you want this place you better act now because it will go fast. We will be selling this home using our Exclusive Click2Offer system so if you want to make an offer, ask me for an invite to participate. See you at the house ;)

Change to Ipswich Real Estate!
Changing my realestate agent for both my rental properties was daunting and I had been putting it off for months, then once again the agent that I had used for the last few years made yet another blunder it was time to kick Parktrent properties out and finally find an agent who actually knew what they are doing! I only made one phone call to Ipswich Real Estate and after a few minutes talking with Candice the rental manager I felt at ease and knew this company knew what they were doing and had a fresh approach to the boring rental industry! I’ve now been with them for just over six months and kick myself for not changing to them sooner, they organised the changeover I did nothing, they sorted out new Tennants within days and the best part is they actually ring you back! I know this is a simple thing to do but my previous agent didn’t so I felt quite special to get three phones call from them in one day! If you’re having problems like I did with Parktrent properties pick the phone up and ring Candice and the team, it will be the best call you make all day, I was for me!

In my recent experience, buying and selling property can be a either an exciting & wonderful experience or an overwhelming & exhausting process.. After being completely let down by one of the big franchises in town, I emailed a local agency, well after business hours had closed & was blessed to have Troy Boettcher contact me within minutes.. Troy met with us the following day & made the entire process an absolute joy.. Troy's knowledge of the area, the current trends & a marketing strategy, that he designed and tailored just for us, ensured us a prompt sale at a price we were more than happy with.. Troy kept us well informed, he was proactive and didn't waste a minute of our time.. A genuine agent and man who deserves all the success in the world..
