Magnificent estate "The Riverbank"

The Riverbank is the original homestead of late 19th century Bulimba, transformed into one of the most elegant and authentic renovated heritage residences of Brisbane's inner eastern suburbs.

Built in 1886 as the home for the landlord of a market garden spanning 94 acres, gently elevated on a hill crest, The Riverbank is today a two-thirds newly constructed family house that embraces its Victorian era architectural history while offering every amenity for a comfortable way of life.

Meticulously detailed and constructed to specifications rarely seen in contemporary building, the Riverbank offers approximately 550m2 of living over two levels, with 'close' city views - just three minutes' walk to a riverside park and the CityCat.

While most of the home is newly built, the essence and detail of a bygone era has been captured and incorporated in a way that sets Riverbank apart. Yet never does architectural integrity compromise the property's ability to meet the needs and desires of modern home owners.

Only viewing this property will truly reveal its many exceptional features and captivating European charm - every detail carefully crafted with quality materials and thoughtfully designed, exclusively utilising bespoke, high-end fixtures and fittings.

The Riverbank has been in the hands of only two owners in the past three decades, and this rare opportunity to make it the heart of your family's lifestyle should not be missed. While your mail may not be addressed to 'The Riverbank, Bulimba" as it was 130 years ago, it will be sent to a place you will treasure living in and owning for many years to come.
