Built circa 1910, you will not believe the originality of this iconic New Farm Queenslander.
10 Gibbon Street, New Farm is special for a few reasons. Firstly, it's 582 square metres of New Farm's finest. It has a 12.1 meter frontage. There is genuine potential to split the block and build a separate dwelling with city views. ( STCA ) You can raise, renovate and transform the current dwelling into your forever' home. It's a much sought after corner block with front, side and rear access. The house itself has been in the family for sixty nine years. As one can appreciate, the decision to sell has not been taken lightly, as this is so much more than a house.
10 Gibbon Street, New Farm is completely authentic in its own right. Oozing character, charm and an abundance of potential, it can be said without hesitation that this is the best buying opportunity of 2015.
Magnificent in all its form, this is, in every sense, a rarity in itself. Although sad to say goodbye, the family circumstances have changed, and the property is going under the hammer at the public auction, on site at 10:00 am, Saturday 24th October, 2015.
When purchasing real estate, location and value for money is everything. 10 Gibbon Street, New Farm has every facet covered in spades. It's hard to not have a soft spot for this home when viewing from the street. You can just picture the kids playing backyard cricket in the 1950's, with The Ashes being broadcast from the wireless on the kitchen bench. The wonderful thing is, internally, nothing has changed. In all my real estate career, I've never seen anything quite like it.
Internally, you will be thrown back in time to the 1950's from the furniture to the fittings, even down to the classic kitchen layout. Four big bedrooms (including master) are well proportioned. The kitchen and bathroom still sit in their original condition. The central room is perfect for dining / lounging, while the separate sun room at the front provides the extra living space to create harmonious living throughout.
Perhaps the biggest value add of 10 Gibbon Street is the potential to renovate. The platform is in place, so bring along your architect and let your imagination run wild, as there is genuine scope to put your stamp on this exceptional family home, and build something special. Make no mistake, this is an absolute one off.
10 Gibbon Street, New Farm is also within easy walking distance of the James Street Markets and New Farm Shopping precinct. Here you're surrounded by fine dining restaurants and boutique shops. Teneriffe Park is only minutes' walk away.
Let it be known; the owners are very serious about selling on or before Saturday, October 24th at 10:00am onsite. For the eventual buyer, it will be a day you'll always remember fondly.
