" BERRY HOUSE " Restoration Complete !

Enjoy the Victorian charm of this exceptional 19th Century property. Built in 1870 in Georgian style the stately home has had a diverse journey to arrive finally at its best.  Built for William Berry, the landmark two story building enjoys far reaching views and has a spectacular street presence.  Originally the roof was slate but was replaced with iron in the 1920's- one slate tile remains.  It was also at this time that the cast iron balustrade was added to give a Victorian look.  This was previously on the the Bank of N.S.W building.  Like many Ipswich homes during mid century the building was modified into flats.  This provided much needed accommodation after the war and quite often saved the property from demolition.  The Why birds restored the property and then sold it to the Ipswich Independent Youth Shelter.  At this time a second dwelling was added to the site with access from Omar Street.  The current owners purchased the property in the 90's and raised their seven children whilst restoring and running an antique building from the second building.  Included in this meticulous restoration is a complete internal and external paint in period colors.  The interior has been completely re skinned.  The top and lower level verandahs have been tiled with tessellated tiles as is the new bathroom with quality fittings, laundry and conservatory.  . A moving view from the top level is far reaching encompassing Northern mountains, Ipswich Grammar School, St Marys Cathedral and the Brisbane C.B. D Skyline.  The original building has from the hall- formal parlour & dining, 2 bedrooms and a staircase to 3 more bedrooms and new bathroom.  Internal access leads out to the light filled conservatory ideal for relaxed breakfasts or a quiet read. A powder room / laundry is provided in this space conveniently near the kitchen /dining which is the hub of this family's home.  Re purposed cedar in the bespoke kitchen has functional stone bench tops and an antique porcelain double bowl sink.  The second building provides endless opportunities for extra accommodation, office space or possible Air B'n'B.  There is a separate bathroom, 2 bedrooms and kitchen with the advantage of Historic Mixed Use Zoning as a home business may be run separate  to the main home.
