A piece of Brisbane history, ‘Bancroft House’ is a lovingly restored historic home, perched in a leafy street overlooking the greenery of Bancroft Park. Number 30 offers a lifestyle of convenience and beauty, just steps from picnic areas, children’s playgrounds, and bike paths, whilst only 10 minutes to the CBD!

Sitting pride of place atop a fully fenced allotment, the front gate opens to reveal a beautifully landscaped yard and gardens. Entering the home, the interiors have been freshly painted and showcase original character breezeways, VJ walls, French doors, high ceilings and polished timber floors.

The formal lounge room is the centrepiece of the home and is adorned with decorative cornices and period touches. The adjoining dining room flows out to the entertainer’s deck, which offers a relaxed and private setting to host friends and family!

Built in 1910 on land owned by prominent Brisbane surgeon Joseph Bancroft, the street the home resides on was named for him, and the suburb of Kelvin Grove was named after his original homestead in Scotland.
