The site of one of only two licensed brothels in Cairns has been listed for sale.

The property at 7 Owen Close, Portsmith is being offered for sale via an expressions of interest campaign closing July 13 through Ray White Commercial.

The freehold building on a land area of nearly 2,095 sqm land area has potential for redevelopment subject to council approval.

Listing agent Scott Green of Ray White Commercial Cairns said the property is close to Cairns CBD.

“The existing large, residential style building of approximately 430 sqm has previously been utilised as a brothel and can continue trading within this use under the Cairns Town Plan,” he said.

The building has a reception, office, eight rooms, store room, laundry and double garage. 

It also has an external concrete driveway with parking spaces and high metal security fencing.

Green said the building is situated on a level allotment with the balance of approximately 50 per cent of the land ready for future development.

“Town planning advice suggests there is good planning grounds to provide support for a material change of use for a range of industrial uses,” he said.

The site is close to public transport, the Cairns Port and shops.

It last traded for $500,000 in 2003, according to RP Data.
