House on floodplain sold for $1.1m
A MORNINGSIDE property has sold for $1.1 million despite being on a floodplain.
Melanie Thomas Real Estate agent Melanie Thomas said the sale was a great result, considering the positioning of the block.
"That block of land is a total floodplain so to get $1.1 million is a great result," Ms Thomas said.
The Brisbane City Council Balmoral flood map shows the allotment at 160 Junction Rd was subject to creek, river or tidal flooding.
However, the house that was on the massive 3791sq m block was a highset Queenslander, built to withstand such conditions.
The building itself was charming, with polished hoop pine floorboards, VJ walls, arched fretwork and coloured rolled glass windows.
A pool at the rear of the home was built above ground, and linked to the house by a raised, undercover deck.
Ms Thomas said the house was bought by a professional couple from interstate.
"They loved the area and they loved the land size," she said.
"It is only a two bedroom Queenslander but very liveable … so they will live in it and do work to it over time."
