With current zoning supporting 4 stories for neighbouring buildings, a highly sought after north east aspect captures the surrounding heritage parks of Yungaba, Story Bridge and glimpses of the Brisbane River.

Offering a range of appointments that have been collected from local and around the world to ensure this home maintains its old world charm, you know from the moment you pass through the front door that you’re witnessing something special.
Set across a functional single level layout, it exudes a warm and inviting ambience. Original Queensland Hoop Pine floorboards have been carefully removed and reset onto realigned joists during restoration.
