Spring Hill, Brisbane home dating back to 1860 up for sale

A heritage listed estate dating back to 1860 in Brisbaneโ€™s inner city suburb of Spring Hill is up for sale.

โ€˜Grangehillโ€™, the six-bedroom (or five plus library), two-bathroom plus powder room house on 731sq m at 449 Gregory Terrace will be taken to the market via an auction campaign run by Knight Frankโ€™s Christian Sandstrom and Ray Whiteโ€™s Pat Goldsworthy.

Built in 1860 for prominent politician Alexander Raff, ‘Grangehill’ has gone through many lifetimes and historical changes over the past 160-plus years, including being held by the Discalced Carmelite Fathers, whose presence is still evident today through the ‘Cloister’ glass panel in the main hallway.

The home features wraparound verandas across both floors that take in the city vistas and views over The Old Museum, a formal living room and formal dining room with marble fireplace, a spacious kitchen with combined family meals area and secure undercover parking for six cars via Gregory Terrace.

It has heritage features including 3.6 metre ceilings downstairs and 3.4 metre ceilings upstairs, as well as two chimney stacks, two fireplaces, hoop pine floors, classic architraves, ceiling roses, chandeliers, bay windows, French doors and ornate cornices.

Mr Sandstrom said the home would appeal to buyers looking for a character home that is firmly cemented in Brisbaneโ€™s history.

โ€œGrangehill is an iconic property in our Brisbane,โ€ he said.

โ€œThe home has been exquisitely maintained over the years, and has further potential to be reinstated as one of Brisbaneโ€™s grandest homes.

โ€œNotable drawcards are its inner city location and sweeping aspects to the north, west and south, being perched high atop Spring Hill.โ€

Mr Goldsworthy said Grangehill was close to plenty of amenities in Brisbaneโ€™s inner city, which would be another attraction for buyers.

โ€œThis location offers access to Brisbane’s most exclusive schools, including Brisbane Grammar, hospitals, parklands and lifestyle precincts,โ€ he said.

โ€œItโ€™s also close to Fortitude Valley, James Street and Howard Smith Wharves.โ€

โ€˜Grangehillโ€™ will be auctioned at 5.30 pm on Thursday, 27 April at The Calile Hotel, if not sold prior.
