Classy, yet Very Affordable, Absolute Brisbane River City Acreage

Property ID 1830093
"Jedburgh" is a quality absolute riverfront acreage property with a very unique combination of features not found anywhere else in Brisbane.

The key words in the heading for "Jedburgh" say it all:
* Classy * River * City * Acreage * CIRCA 1884 and * Very Affordable.

Being just 20 minutes to both the Brisbane CBD and Queensland University, "Jedburgh" is sited in the long term blue chip inner city ring suburb of Kenmore. The 1.3 acres of lovely gardens and striking huge river gums give this unique elevated property a genuine Botanical Gardens feel. What is not evident until you are on the acreage is the amazing privacy - in part due to the neighbouring 700* acre Qld Uni Vet Farm & the 5* acre environmental park, used by the Yarawa Pony Club. (Keep your own horses right next door!). In fact there are no established neighbours here - a rare thing!

The absolute water frontage does not get much better. In fact it is not just the 76 metres of absolute elevated Brisbane River frontage on offer here but also a similar amount of Moggill Creek frontage - that's over 150 metres of combined absolute water frontage. Importantly though are the doubling of the wide and never to be built out Brisbane River and rural views here - the frontage covers not one but two reaches of the river!

The CIRCA 1884 family colonial was moved from the inner Brisbane suburb of Windsor by the current owners onto this site in 1994. And what a renovated and classy home it is. Lovers of this period of home will really appreciate the extensive original colonial architectural features. In fact this 4 bedroom with sleep-out and study family home is one of the very few colonials actually on the Brisbane River.

The full size north south facing tennis court is flood-lit and the deep water pontoon has a built-in ledge to launch kayaks when exploring both the river and creek - "Jedburgh" really is ideal for the active family.

And importantly, why so very affordable? Due to the property having been listed and auctioned previously without selling, the owners now require a sale at the March 23rd auction.
They clearly advise all interested parties, both new and old, to disregard all previous advertised asking prices as they confirm they will be meeting the market on the 23rd.

As a result a wonderful opportunity is now available for just one family to secure such a quality river front acreage property for likely half the price a similar property would sell for in the neighbouring suburb Fig Tree Pocket. Alternatively this unique opportunity is also there for a family to own such a riverfront acreage property that they perhaps never thought possible. And this would especially apply to any current residents in the Brookfield & Pullenvale areas who would welcome a rural lifestyle alternative but with all city conveniences and importantly little traffic headaches.
But this one off opportunity only starts with your inspection.

Inspections on Saturdays and Sundays 10.30 - 11.30am (please park on Scenic Road) * Approx
