A historic fire station in Yeronga is being offered for sale for the first time in 15 years.
The station was built in the 1930s by architecture company Conrad and Gargett, who also designed Old Government House and Customs House in Brisbane.
“This property represents an incredible purchase opportunity for the astute buyer to secure a piece of Brisbane’s rich cultural history,” said Aron Burtenshaw, one of the Ray White Industrial Milton agents on the property.
“Currently zoned emergency services, the 280-square-metre two-level building on a 1,062-square-metre block could be used as an office or residence, or enhanced with additional development (STCA). An office approval was granted in 2001 but was never finalised,” said Mr Burtenshaw.
“We have already had strong interest from a range of buyers including doctors and art businesses seeking a live and work option,” he said.
The property includes many original features including fireman pole hole and levered garage doors which open onto an original engine room.
The fire station auction will be held onsite at 11am (AEST) on Wednesday, 7 December 2016.
