Massive Potential in Newtown

Not often an opportunity comes up to purchase a quarter acre (1012m2) corner block with two street frontage in Newtown, one of Ipswich's most sought after suburbs.

This solid old home was built around the turn of the century and is oozing with history. If only the walls could talk... (no hang on, that would be weird.)

This home features 3 typical classic Queensland high ceiling bedrooms with beautiful polished hoop pine floor boards and freshly painted interior, all except one room which has never seen the likes of a paint brush in over 100 years. It is extremely rare to find a home anywhere of this age with a room that has never been painted. (Smells like a Swiss sauna....in a good way.)
The lovely wide verandahs on two sides are great for relaxing on but could very easily be converted into an ensuite for the main and a study off the lounge room. These are very common renovations and adds so much functionality and value to your home.

The functional kitchen has it's original woodfired stove (made in Brisbane) and porcelain sink.

Outside you'll find a single car old school garage and the old outdoor dunny / laundry complete with a rare Cribb & Foote cement washtub from one of our most historic departments stores dating back to 1849 (the store not the tub).
The roof is in amazing condition and has been replaced from the original which means another big cost that has already been taken care of.

This home has massive potential. You could split it, put a granny flat on the back, a massive shed for all your toys or a pool. You could extend, raise it up. Whatever you want. It is Newtown remember and prices there are on the rise especially for large block character homes. For the money good luck finding anything like this in Brisbane, which is just 30 minutes down the road. Far East Ipswich as we like to call it.

This home has the space and location to make it your dream family home.
Walking distance to cafes, shopping & schools including Ipswich Girls Grammar.

Take the Virtual tour and if you think this is the place for you, give me a call and I'll take you on a private inspection.

This will not be on the market long, so don't muck around.

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!

Genuine agent!

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..
