QLD National Bank of 1887 - 3 Bedroom Home

This true piece of history was the Queensland National bank and first opened its doors in Mount Morgan in 1887 continuing to operate as a bank until 1929. After that, for a time it was a set of flats and is now a 3 bedroom home. The property has many original features still in place and is a real piece of not only Mount Morgan History but Australian History. The gold mine in the Mount helped Australia truly become the "Lucky Country"and this property was an active participant in that. 

When you walk up the stairs and onto the verandah you will instantly know you are some place special. The large double verandah doors open into a grand hallway which access 2 of the 3 bedrooms, which were flats at once stage and the large open lounge space. Off the lounge you will find the old bank vault which would make a fantastic wine cellar. 

 At the end of the hallway you enter an open plan kitchen/dining area. From there you access 3rd bedroom, bathroom, laundry and back verandah/patio area. The kitchen is modern with plenty of cupboards and bench top space, including a centre island and the whole area is tiled. 

 Outside there is some shed space and beautiful rock retaining walls. The block is a double allotment at just over half an acre. Part of it has been tiered and was previously used as veggie gardens. There is a gorgeous old decorative front retaining wall that has a placard placed by the historical society back in 1978 detailing the original history of the property. 

 This is a one of a kinda property. Don't miss your chance to own your very on piece of history.
