Opportunities like this don’t come around that often, and when it does you have jump on it fast. Not only is this property one of Ipswich’s oldest and historical homes, it's also on 2,203m2 of land in the Ipswich CBD.
Built and owned by David McLaughlin in around 1856, who also built Ipswich Boys Grammar in 1863.
In 1870, Council records indicate that Alfred Dann was the occupant. When sold it was described as "just the thing for a gentleman on the lookout for a town house" and intriguingly said to enjoy "sea breezes". I don’t know about the gentleman thing or the sea breezes but what I do know is, Notnel is a one of a kind property with history oozing from every wall.

The house remains one of Ipswich's finest and most significant examples of early Queensland domestic architecture from a period when the growing strength of the city was reflected in the more substantial residential buildings being constructed from the mid-1860s onwards. Built originally for David McLaughlin, a contractor, is an example of a substantial early house in the Ipswich area and remains of interest for its unique features such as the attic and dormer windows.
Notnel is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register and is the ultimate home for someone who loves the history of Ipswich and is willing to become Notnel’s next custodian.
