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.
