Red Hill home made of materials from iconic Brisbane buildings goes to auction

This Red Hill home features reclaimed materials from buildings and properties across Queensland, including the Treasury Building.

The 111 Arthur Tce home went under the hammer on Saturday the 14th of April.

The four bedroom, two bathroom home is great for those concerned about sustainability, with a number of recycled materials used in the build of the property.

Place New Farm lead sales agent Alex Rutherford said the home was built about 20 years ago and the original owners had run a salvage yard.

“This home has a classic feel and was built with recycled materials,” Ms Rutherford said.

“The recycled brick and exposed beams make for some really historical features.”

The bricks originated from Cannon Hill stockyards, the kitchen hoop pine cupboards from a Queensland convent, and floor joints from the Treasury Building.

The pillars supporting the back deck were also reclaimed, originating from Bretts Wharf.

Ms Rutherford said the home, which is set on 506sq m, faced directly north and was on one level, which was unusual for the size of the block.

“It’s mid-level size and is great for somebody that doesn’t want stairs, because most of the time on a smaller block it will go upstairs,” she said.

It was auctioned on-site at 9am, on Saturday, April 14.

The five bedroom home at 49 Landing Place, Moggill, also went to auction.

The house sits on a 2.47 acre block and has decadent touches from parquet floors to chandelier light fittings.

Brisbane Real Estate acreage specialist Kel Goesch said the builders of the property had thought of everything.

“It’s a very rare opportunity to buy a home and lifestyle package of such high quality and space in this general area,” Mr Goesch said.

“The home has lots of character and lots of thought has been put into the detail, from the cornicing to the light fittings and the curtains.”

The house has all the extras you could ever want, including a wet bar and wine cellar, a billiards room, a cinema, an outdoor kitchen by the pool and a wood fire pizza oven.
