Picturesque and Historic Bayside HomeA piece of Brisbane history, this charming and renovated home “Tir nan og” is offered to the open property market for the first time in 70 years.
Built by the original owners in 1947 and located at Ormiston, between Wellington Point and Cleveland, this cherished residence was named after an Irish legend about the land of the “forever young”. Sitting atop a ridge across a sprawling 2,499m2 allotment and overlooking Raby Esplanade Park and majestic Raby Bay, this private, seaside lifestyle is second to none. Viscount Dunrossil, The Governor General of Australia was entertained at the home on a private visit in 1960.
Originally surrounded by acres of land and painted pink, this home known locally as “The Pink House” was purchased privately by the current owners in 1987.

An entertainer’s dream, this stately home comprises a lovely formal lounge with original fireplace, built-in book shelves and French doors. From here, move out onto either of the private east or west facing verandahs. Each is shielded from the view and noise of neighbours.

A walk-in robe also flows from this space, making the master a true parent’s retreat.
