Auction Location: On-Site
Positioned to offer riverside exclusivity, in-demand inner west amenity and future growth, this 1960s’ built mid-century styled residence with over 35m of absolute frontage to the Brisbane River can be removed and a new designer build worthy of this prime location constructed (STCA.)
Consult with an architect, engage a premium builder and contemplate your choice of designer finishes and inclusions that will create stylish interiors and stunning outdoor living spaces, as you plan to redevelop this high and dry, near ½ acre elevated location. With an advantageous north-east aspect to rear taking in views across the river, this site and its possibilities are sure to exceed your expectations.
The potential to hold and landbank such a large allotment in a prestigious suburb regarded for its multi-million-dollar classic and contemporary residences is timely, with this property, set at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, presenting a particularly favourable opportunity. There is a very generous building envelope within the landscape’s boundaries to assist in accommodating your dream house’s captivating design and expansive layout.
Perfect to live in as is or rent out in the interim while the exciting, site redevelopment wheels are set in motion, the four bedroom, two bathroom home is comfortable and spacious, with outdoor living, a modern kitchen boasting updated appliances, plenty of storage and welcome privacy from neighbouring properties.
In its existing form, the current lowset residence with dual car accommodation captures the original essence of the mid-century modern era. An abundance of wide windows, louvres and sliding timber and glass doors to living areas and all bedrooms, open the interiors directly onto the paved, covered outdoor terrace and its bright, sunlit aspect. There is a densely treed canopy above and a winding pathway that leads from the home, through the gardens and to the river’s edge below.
Dark timber veneer joinery is styled into buffet and bar serveries within, having a study nook, unique master bedroom library seating area and built-in dressing table, with the cream-brick faced, open log burning fireplace in the lounge sitting room reinforcing the design trends of the time.
Prestigious Fig Tree Pocket has an upmarket appeal balanced by a natural bushland enhanced, semi-rural feel that its residents adore.

Near to exemplary state and private schooling options, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre’s designer stores, its entertainment and dining precinct and public transport hub, and with the University of Queensland, parklands and a choice of golf courses within easy reach, the Fig Tree Pocket name continues to draw professionals and families to this highly desirable suburb.
