Brisbane’s The Moorings, a Tudor-style New Farm mansion, sold

Brisbane’s The Moorings, a Tudor-style New Farm mansion, sold

One of Brisbane’s most prominent heritage riverfront homes has sold.

Listed in April 2011, The Moorings – a Tudor-style mansion at New Farm – has been sold for around an unconfirmed $4.5 million.

Its vendors paid $575,000 in 1993 and it had sold at $35,550, in 1973.

Its most recent official land value was $3 million for the 524-square-metre holding.

The five-bedroom home boasts timber finishes, including red mahogany floors and cast iron features.

Its grassed terraces fronting the river have protected the home during the past great floods in 1974 and 2011.

Legend has it the house was built by an English doctor whose wife cherished a dinner plate embossed with a picture of a grand Tudor house.

The house was built in the image of the picture.

It had been listed most recently through Gold Coast agent Carol Carter of Coldwell Banker.
