22 September 2020

House Ipswich started trading back on 11th March 2019 as what was, at the time, essentially nothing more than a construction site – The building only partially completed , no landscaping, no signage, no stairs and temporary fencing marking the property perimeter. Now over 18 months on, it is Ipswich’ hottest new real estate agency and most spectacular and iconic real estate office.

The classic early-1900’s Queenslander has had an extreme makeover and while this beautiful home has now been given modern flourishes, the core elements of what made the iconic Queenslander home so special remain gloriously intact. Gleaming polished timber floors, high ceilings, VJ walls and all of the other hallmarks of that incredible era all feature prominently at the new and improved 149 Brisbane Road.

Chairman and Director Michael Rojek, who purchased the site in 2007, said that he was initially attracted to the property not just because of it’s beautiful architecture but also it’s superb positioning right in the heart of the busy Booval commercial precinct.

“149 Brisbane Road is what I like to refer to as a ‘positive corner’, with great main road exposure and 2-street frontage”, he said. “It is the perfect site for a real estate office, and the building itself captures a slice of history. It is a quintessential Ipswich property.”

House Ipswich – 149 Brisbane Rd, Booval is also home also to the eHouse Expresso – House Property Agents’ iconic orange Kombi van – As well as some of Ipswich’ most recognizable real estate identities. Not just an office, but both a ‘House’ and a ‘Home’ in itself, it is a special place that looks and feels like no other real estate office anywhere. As the company moves forward and grows, 149 Brisbane Road is and will remain the quintessential “House”.
