2 Brady Court, MOUNT CROSBY QLD 4306
CHARMING WORKERS COTTAGE
Positioned in the middle of Mount Crosby, with direct proximity to Mount Crosby State School, Post Office / General Store and bushland tracks, this north-east facing original workers cottage has all the charm and traditional features of a pre-war home, and is the perfect place to call home.
The home is a piece of Brisbane’s history, originally constructed around ~1920 as accommodation for workers delivering expansion works at the Mount Crosby Waterworks. The house was then relocated to its current location in the “second village” around the late ~1920’s near the intersection of Mount Crosby and Stumers Roads and close to the general store and school. The house, and others in the second village, were not sold into private ownership until the late 1990s as a result of increased urbanisation of the area and a decreased need for Waterworks employee accommodation in the area.
The traditional features of the home include beautiful pine floorboards throughout, vertical joint (VJ) walls and ceilings, french doors, sash windows, traditional front verandah and more. The home also features good size bedrooms with queen size beds, a new renovated bathroom, a Crown #1 wood stove, combustion heater in the lounge, air conditioning in the living and master bedroom, a water tank, and a powered three bay shed. The roof has been restored, and gutters replaced recently.
Under the home there is plenty of storage, with a concrete slab and separate second laundry. The flat and usable 897m2 block of land is fully fenced, with an array of fruiting and flowering trees creating a charming country cottage feel.
It is located directly across from the local park and a short walk to the Post Office, Bowls Club, and Mount Crosby State School. There are regular buses to Ipswich private schools and Kenmore State High School and it is only three minutes to the local shops. Additionally, Kenmore Shopping Village, Brisbane and Ipswich CBD’s and more are all within reach.
