Own a piece of Ipswich History


This property's land dates back to 1886. In 1900, Mr James Allan Rumble, the owner of a nearby Dinmore brick and pottery works, built this magnificent hand made brick cottage for him and his family and remanded in their family for 50+ years.
In its 120 years it has only past hands 3 times. The current family have owned it since 1989.
No doubt many Ipswich residents know this property but may never have known the history that lies between the walls of this rare handmade brick cottage.
Unlike most brick made homes of this era, Ivanhoe Cottage's interior walls have never been rendered. It is as if Mr Rumble was so proud of his brick work, that it would be a shame to cover them up.
Throughout the cottage you'll find various different styles of timber floorboards, each with their own character. The ceilings are pressed metal and for some reason, so are the walls in the lounge room. What could lie behind them?
The cottage has 3 bedrooms with the third being a single bedroom. One of the bedrooms has a stunning fireplace and so has the lounge room.
The kitchen is cosy and still has the Furphy Dove No. 8 stove which dates back to the 1930s.

Now don't be bedazzled by my amazing photography, this home still needs a little work to be done, eg bathroom & kitchen, replacing a couple of floorboards etc, but one of the most costly things, the roof and bullnose verandahs have already been done.

Ivanhoe Cottage also sits on 3 titles and the title to the rear could easily be subdivided off. (See council for more details)

If you if could see yourself in this very important piece of Ipswich history sitting on a massive 2071m2 block of land in a very hand location, then take the 3D tour and if you like what you see, give me a call and I'll take you on a private tour through time.

Located walking distance to Dinmore train station and easy access to both the Cunningham Highway and the Warrego Highway.

Only 32min drive to Brisbane CBD and 13min to Ipswich CBD.

Rates are $509.00 a quarter.

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..
