Graceful in Graceville

Posted on Mon, 14 Jan 2008 by midcenturyjo

Things are quiet on the real estate front at the moment. The holiday period is always a difficult time to sell a house. Unless of course it is a stunning renovation of an old Queenslander house in the riverside suburb of Graceville. Lovely homes like these dot Brisbane and sometimes someone does something very special with them. I particularly like the separate modern studio/tv room. Built in 1886 and originally used by Cobb and Co. as a resting place for travellers on their way to the neighbouring town of Ipswich, it’s typical of the Queenslander style with wide verandas, tongue and groove walls, criss cross bracing and high ceilings. I’m in love.

I’m kind of speechless. What a beautiful home. The architecture is stunning.

I LOVE the bookshelves in the living room.

AND pretty much everything else in the house too 🙂
