This is inner city living at its finest.
Brickstone, built in 1864, is an iconic Queensland property and one of Ipswich's first residences, located on highly sought-after Denmark Hill surrounded by quality homes.
The amazing location offers an abundant array of lifestyle choices - cafes, markets, antique stores, boutique restaurants, theatre, art galleries and retail precincts - right on your doorstep.
All your business needs are also covered, with many professional businesses operating nearby, and the Ipswich Hospital and medical precinct a short stroll away.
Families will enjoy the proximity to Riverheart Parklands and Queens Park, as well as having several quality private schools within walking distance.
Those who appreciate the finer things will also adore the home's grandeur, exquisite attention to detail and abundance of period features.
The Character Mixed Use zoning of this block provides the capacity to operate a business from the residence, and with the outbuilding currently set up as a home office, why not take advantage and work from home.
Uses can be explored by contacting the Planning and Development Department of Ipswich City Council.
This thriving city also offers an abundance of local jobs and business opportunities for the savvy entrepreneur.
Commuting is a breeze with multiple public transport options just minutes away.
The current owners of Brickstone have reluctantly placed this amazing home on the open market due to a work transfer that has taken them interstate and they have instructed me to sell their home at Auction with all offers to be presented prior.
Imagine spending your weekends at Brickstone starting with a quick stroll through the local markets and shops, possibly fossicking for some unique pieces that will take pride of place in your new home and then enjoying a beautiful breakfast and coffee just down the road.
Entertaining at Brickstone would be amazing as you and your friends enjoy one of Queensland most intriguing homes - imagine the stories and conversation that this amazing home would inspire.
Brickstone retains many original and inspiring features and is now Heritage Listed to ensure it will be here for many generations to enjoy.
The upper level features two attic bedrooms, with the larger of the two offering ample space for a queen sized bed as well as having its own Juliet style balcony with city views.
A timber staircase winds down to the second level where you will find the grand parlour room with a fully functional fireplace, ornate mantle and an adjoining dining room that is separated by a timber archway.
French doors lead from these rooms to the wrap around verandah and a large bay window is a feature of the dining room.
The master and guest bedrooms can also be found on this level, with the opulent master featuring another gorgeous bay window and access to a two-way bathroom which has pressed metal features and a claw foot bath.
Buyers will note the guest bedroom is gigantic and has polished honey coloured floors and a walk-in robe or an ideal spot for the home office or study.
A few steps further will find the main bathroom with period inspired tiles and a large bath for younger family members or guests.
The ground level of the home would once have been the servant's quarters and is now where you will find an original functioning fireplace, family room and the large dine-in kitchen with its own cellar.
Two leadlight doors open from the kitchen and family room to what I describe as the “Secret Garden”.
This magical space has established gardens, a large pond and a covered outdoor entertaining area.
The brick outbuilding, currently a home office, was once the original kitchen where servants would have spent many hours preparing a feast for the owners and their guests.
Adjoining the old main kitchen is the original washroom which still retains an original copper and now doubles as a storage area.
Around the home you will discover many more rooms and feature areas as well as a remote lockup garage which fronts Roderick Street and a single carport that fronts Murphy Street.
With so many features this is a home that must be personally inspected to be fully appreciated.
