As you walk the streets of Clayfield you can’t help thinking what a fantastic suburb this is, with such convenience at your disposal, public transport to shoot you through to the CBD within minutes, the access to major arterial roads to launch you to either side of town or just the ability to stay within the area and enjoy the luxuries within the immediate vicinity such as supermarkets, cafes, ice creameries and heaps of other stores to choose from which make living in Clayfield a special place to call home. As you walk the streets you think to yourself how will I ever be able to afford to live in such a vibrate location, and then you stumble upon, this little hidden gem. At first glance your head says no, but your heart says yes, and you wander through the doors of this poor old Queenslander that has clearly seen better days and your imagination kicks into gear, the possibilities that rush through your mind are endless.
Do you lay this old beauty to rest?
Do you restore and rescue the poor old thing?
Do you make it into your family home?
Do you take advantage of the LMR zoning and seek council permission to develop?
These are all the thoughts and feelings I went through when I first saw this little humpy, and I’m sure you will also spend time pondering on what you can weave from this little gem and what the finished product of 55 Railway Parade can be.
