Massive city mansion hits the market

ONCE home to the British Trade Commissioner, this Hamilton mansion has hit the market for the first time in two decades.

The renovated 1920s double-brick property is on a massive 2812sq m parcel of land in one of Brisbane's blue chip streets - located at 50 Riverview Terrace, Hamilton.

Owner Maureen Tynan said it had been the ideal property in which to raise her four active sons.

The property has a self-contained entertainment pavilion, championship-size floodlit tennis court, cricket nets and swimming pool where her sons spent a lot of their free time.

"It's been a lovely family home," Mrs Tynan said.

"Between studying, the boys would head out to play basketball, swim in the pool or have a hit of tennis. As they grew older, they loved the entertainment pavilion which stands apart from the main house."

 

The property is spread across 2,812 sqm.

"It's very solid and is warm in winter, yet cool in summer so we rarely use the ducted airconditioning,'' she said.

"It's a family home and because of its layout and function, I think it's timeless."

Although renovated, the home retains many of its period features including decorative plaster ceilings and wood panelling.

The house has played host to many family events. "We've had engagements, weddings, birthdays, christenings and fundraisers here so it's very versatile,'' Mrs Tynan said.
