Once in a century: Prestigious Toowoomba residence going to auction

“Being offered to market by the family for the first time in more than 100 years, this charismatic Queenslander – named Raasay – is set on a massive 2117sq m block and represents one of the best opportunities to renovate this year, allowing for improvements to what is already one of Toowoomba’s iconic trophy homes.”

East Toowoomba commands many of the best addresses in the Garden City and 10 Dawnie Street at the top of the range is in one such position.

“Being offered to market by the family for the first time in more than 100 years, this charismatic Queenslander – named Raasay – is set on a massive 2117sq m block and represents one of the best opportunities to renovate this year, allowing for improvements to what is already one of Toowoomba’s iconic trophy homes.”

A private porch and elegant entry foyer lead to magnificent formal lounge and dining rooms with high ceilings and oak wall panelling. Valley views are filtered from the easterly sitting room and the timeless grace of an unhurried earlier era is easily sensed.

Upstairs, the master bedroom features a large dressing room and adjoining bathroom. The kitchen is complemented by a breakfast room that is perfect for casual dining. A downstairs addition completed 40 years ago produced two spacious bedrooms and a bathroom.

Established grounds feature a wonderful pergola, mature trees and sweeping lawns. Having no character overlay will allow for both historically consistent and new contemporary designs to be considered in your quest for excellence and the next chapter for this irreplaceable location.
