70 Kent Street, New Farm QLD

For Sale




The British series “Escape to the Country” depicts couples with the dream to find the perfect Rural Retreat where they can live in style AND have a “holiday let or BnB rooms” to supplement the income.

Here at 70 Kent Street you have that, but with a City Twist. Positioned on the fringe of Brisbane City and with full Council Approval you can live in style in a beautiful Traditional Queenslander whilst taking advantage of the fabulous location to attract international and national tourists and accommodation seekers.

Bordering on Fortitude Valley and Brisbane City, just metres from local shops, cafes, restaurants, parks, schools, public transport and a short stroll from newly developed Howard Smith Wharves Venue Precinct, you can provide the perfect tourist accommodation to experience all Brisbane has to offer.

The prime location allows easy access to both the Gold and Sunshine coasts and the Brisbane Airport with shuttle service to the door.

This charming property for over fifteen years has been the renowned ‘Cream Gables,’ a council approved successful Bed and Breakfast home business providing the owner with a fabulously free lifestyle in her “fifties & sixties” to work, party and travel on her own terms and time. A new owner can expect to gross well in excess of $100,000 based on a 70% occupancy rate for the 3 downstairs rooms and live in style in the completely separate upstairs 4 bedroom residence.

However, if the BnB lifestyle doesn’t appeal, there are a multitude of other options for this property - long term room/suite rentals, a grand two storey home ideal for an extended family, dual occupancy, upstairs residence / downstairs home business with great street exposure. The configuration of the property allows for all these options to occur effortlessly.
This beautifully maintained residence in the heart of New Farm is a rare offering and must be inspected to be truly appreciative of its warmth and uniqueness.
