This charming original Queenslander has returned to the market for the first time in thirty (30) years - built over two levels, and consisting of eleven (11) bedrooms, there is potential for further conversion into additional rooms. Licensed to accommodate thirty-five (35) persons, the property is currently used as a boutique backpacker hostel. Aussie Way (now operating for over 22 years) has also been used as an Airbnb venue with further potential to be used as a bed and breakfast and is being offered as a going concern due to the current owner’s imminent retirement.

With endless opportunities and endless potential, the property could be readily converted to an exclusive private residence or dual-occupancy or managed for student accommodation. In the rear yard is a large stand-alone building that could be developed as a granny flat (STCA), a magnificent man-cave, studio or home theatre.

Either way, the prime inner city location ensures this property is a veritable goldmine.

Situated in a quiet street with views to Red Hill and Mount Coot-tha from the open front verandahs, the house is but a short walking distance to The Barracks supermarket, speciality shops, cinema complex, Caxton Street restaurants, Suncorp stadium, Roma Street transport hub, Roma Street Parklands and quality schools. A short stroll will take you into the heart of the city and Southbank, with its galleries, museum and city beach.
