If Ipswich were to feature its most magnificent heritage homes on postcards, Dene Brae would undoubtedly be a standout. With a rich history dating back to 1882, this one-of-a-kind residence offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of Ipswich’s past.

Originally built for local merchant Mr. Reed of Lee & Reed Grocers fame, Dene Brae is a stunning example of an Ipswich Colonial Home. Set on a sprawling 1558m2 fully landscaped block, this home exudes charm and character from every corner.

Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by 12-foot ceilings and beautiful Hoop Pine floorboards that lead you through the home. The formal lounge features the original fireplace, adding to the historic ambiance.

The home boasts 4 bedrooms, each offering spacious accommodation and period features. Two of the bedrooms open out through French doors to what was once the side verandah, now transformed into a picturesque space for entertaining or relaxation. This area, reminiscent of the Raffles in Singapore, is covered by a motorized Vergola, providing control over light and weather conditions.

The open plan kitchen and dining area seamlessly flow onto the rear deck, also equipped with a Vergola roof, overlooking the majestic 100+ year old Poinciana trees. Despite its proximity to Ipswich CBD, the serene ambiance of the yard makes it easy to forget you’re in the heart of the city.

Dene Brae has a fascinating history, even making an appearance in the television series HARROW, featuring international star Ioan Gruffyd from the Fantastic 4.

Additional features include a new roof, new stumps, two toilets, and the convenience of being within walking distance to Ipswich Girls Grammar, Ipswich & St Andrew’s Hospital, Ipswich CBD, and East Ipswich Station. Brisbane CBD is just a 40-minute train ride away.

Experience the magic of Dene Brae for yourself with a private inspection. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Ipswich’s history and make it your own.
