Close to three acres of land come with the property.“An attached section with shower/toilet/sink, massive steel garage with powered workshop and laundry functionality, additional shed and double carport are also present. The chamferboard and corrugated iron roofed house also boasts VJ interior walls, timber breezeways, high ceilings, split system airconditioner, ceiling fans and solar panels plus electrical inverter.”It was all about the land after all. The house is circa 1920.The area is still zoned rural residential and but the “vast allotment of just under 3 acres” was close to new amenities and residential estates.“The circa 1920s home has witnessed better days but may be revived into a respectable abode again and currently accommodates two bedrooms, workable kitchen, lounge room and enclosed, front sunroom. The sleep-out looks like it hasn’t been slept in years. This is not the kitchen you’d expect in a $770,000 two bedroom home.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus22 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market22 hours agoThis one was located around 15km from the Brisbane CBD, where the median house price has been flat in the past three months on $485,000.The property was taken to auction by the Office of the Public Trustee in Brisbane which refused to accept any offers before it went under the hammer.It was marketed as a property with the “prospect to redevelop or revive in (an) emerging locale” because of its substantial land holding of 9,611sq m — more than enough to cause a twinkle in the eye of a medium term developer or land banker. 39 Fleming Road, Hemmant, Qld 4174THIS dilapidated worker’s cottage is nowhere near the inner-city and yet it has landed an eyewatering price for its condition.The rundown two bedroom, single bathroom cottage at 39 Fleming Street, Hemmant, fetched $770,000 under the hammer midweek.In the inner-city similar homes have been landing million-dollar plus prices but that’s in rapidly gentrified suburbs like New Farm and Paddington, mere strolls from the Brisbane CBD.
