The House that Jack Built—Offered to Market for the First Time
Presented to the market for the very first time since it was built in 1952, this charming Graceville home was owned by iconic cricketer Jack McLaughlin and is truly a piece of local history. Set on a spacious 562m2 allotment with rare two-street frontage (to Connor Street), it sits in a flourishing pocket within walking distance of cafes, Graceville train station and Graceville Memorial Park.
There is so much to adore about this classic post-war home, situated on a highly sought-after street and surrounded by gorgeous neighbouring properties.
It was once seen as a staple point in the community where locals, family and friends would gather to seek Jack’s wealth of knowledge, share a beer and have a laugh. That same kind of joy and cheer could be a continued legacy for the astute buyer, ready to make it shine once more.
The property features a tidy front porch for awaiting the arrival of guests. Beyond here is a generous lounge and dining area with air-conditioning and high ceilings. There is a great kitchen with electric appliances, eat-in meals space or room to add an island bench.
Completing the home are three bedrooms, two with built-in robes and a generous family bathroom. Towards the rear is a separate laundry with a big linen cupboard and a separate toilet.
From here, you can access the generous backyard with a single garage and garden shed, plus full street entry to Connor Street!
It is set within the desired Graceville State School catchment and is near Christ the King Primary School, St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. This home is only moments from the Goodlife gym, bakery and amenities, plus it is close to Graceville’s restaurant hub, and Honour Avenue’s dining options.
It is close to Graceville train station and city-bounded buses, and major arterial roads. The Queensland Tennis Centre, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre and UQ’s Saint Lucia campus are just a few of the conveniences at your fingertips.
