This restored Queenslander has changed hands for $510,000.THIS may well be the prettiest house you see today — a four bedroom 1928 Queenslander that’s been restored and sold for $510,000.Original VJ walls, character timber flooring, fretwork, high ceilings and original casement windows make this home the quintessential Queenslander and that’s what drew buyers in, according to agent Grant Smith of Century 21 Sunshine Coast.The property at 11 George Street, Nambour, sold with two weeks of he and colleague Jacqui Dell listing it. It came on the market at $525,000 on January 10 and by the 24th it was under contract. This spot and a glass of lemonade on a balmy afternoon would be bliss.“The charm and character of the property got it up and it’s a small low maintenance block,” Mr Smith said. “We are seeing strong growth in past 12 months, seeing prices go up.”The home was “rumoured to have belonged to the mayor of the 1940s” and marketed as having “rich charm and history, if only walls could talk”.
