A heritage mansion in Brisbane has gone on the market, with buyers having until the start of October to put in their interest.
The property, known as Waterton, was used during World War II by servicemen and by police trainees after that.
Quest Newspapers reported that Blocksidge and Ferguson Limited are in charge of the sale of the historic proper.
The property was passed to the Red Cross in 1941 to house servicemen returning from the war. Before then, between 1913 and 1940, it was owned by EA harding Frew who was a civil engineer responsible for designing the William Jolly Bridge.
Over in Sydney another heritage property is expecting to see a major sale soon. Fairfax house, which has been owned by the Fairfax family for 102 years and is otherwise known as Elaine, is expected to see for somewhere between $80 million to $100 million. Should it achieve such a sale, this will be a record for the property market in Australia.
