History For Sale "Higgin's Place"- Original Lowset Queenslander!

Welcome to a piece of Slade Point's history, "Higgin's Place" a charming lowset original Queenslander cottage that has stood the test of time and holds a lifetime of memories within its walls. This unique family home, proudly owned by the same family since its relocation, has grown and evolved into a quaint beachside holiday gathering place, then the following years a family home.
The home was originally a managers residence, transported to this site approximately in 1965 from Pleystowe.

Situated on a generous 809m2 block, with a long driveway and carport, this cottage boasts four bedrooms, offering ample space for family and friends to gather. The heart of the home is the large central lounge room, ideal for family gatherings, I certainly can imagine everyone sitting around in this room, listening to the wireless or a family member playing the piano as entertainment, (the piano is still there by the way ! )

Original features, timber floors and high ceilings throughout the home tell a story of days gone by. The built-in original verandah with rows of casement windows is a perfect spot to enjoy the gentle sea breeze, laze around on a day bed or space for a full-size office!

The interior reveals a nostalgic ambiance with an old-style kitchen adorned with original louvre windows, allowing natural light to cascade into the space. The living experience is enhanced with a dedicated family room, ideal for entertainment or a quiet retreat. The original washhouse, complete with triple concrete tub, adds to the authenticity of this residence, preserving the spirit of a bygone era.

For those who appreciate the craftsmanship of yesteryear, the property includes an original shed with a brick-paved floor, a space that invites creativity and nostalgia. Beyond the property, with land size being 809m2, you can certainly enjoy a large back yard which includes the original hills hoist clothesline and established trees. One tree being the family's pride and joy – a mango tree which the family tell me was the highlight of their visits to the cottage, where they would all help to harvest the fruit and then sit around together to enjoy the mango feasts. Apparently the tree still produces mouthwatering mangoes to this day!
