Sprawling colonial homestead in the heart of the Ironside SS catchment


Treat your family to turn-of-the-century grandeur. ‘Tobermory’ (circa 1906) is a sprawling Queenslander on two massive blocks in Taringa. Formal gardens, entertaining area, cubby house and tropical pool – there’s even plenty of room to set up a marquee for parties or family weddings.

High tea can be taken on the classic wraparound verandah, which looks out across a jacaranda-tree valley to the city skyline. Inside, you’ll find a tasteful rejuvenation by designer Anna Spiro. But, if your extra-large family still can’t squeeze in, you’ll love the plans for a third-level master suite. Understand now why this place has changed hands only three times in 114 years? It’s a keeper.
