Irresistible Romantic Charm and Elegance of Yesteryear

Balmoral – Circa 1890 – 1892

Steeped in history with sweeping streetscape and story book appearance, this is one of the region’s most elegant and admired homes. Located on a double lot, Balmoral is a landmark home with genuine historic appeal, homes like these are constantly sought after but rarely found and opportunities like this should not be missed.

Built with Victorian influence and then updated during the federation era, the original owner “Frederick Goleby” (former mayor of Ipswich) named the home “Balmoral” after Queen Victoria’s favoured residence “Balmoral Castle”.

This enchanting heritage home will make the largest of families comfortable, with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3+ living spaces and 5 lock-up garages.

Careful to ensure the stunning period features of the home remain untouched, the current owners have given the home a whole new lease of life, with new bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, paintwork and 5 kW of solar panels, ensuring you a comfortable transition into life at Balmoral.

Balmoral is a wonderful opportunity to live in a beautiful, sought-after position, in a landmark colonial home with genuine historic appeal as well as practical functionality.
