A heritage-listed house in Brisbane home, known as Amity, has come onto the market for the first time in more than two decades.

The single storey house sits on a 2,127 square metre estate at 101 Welsby Street, New Farm.

It features four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a frontage to the Bulimba Reach.

The entire estate can be purchased, or offers can be placed for 672 square metres of vacant surrounding land (for future development).

Designed and constructed in the late 19th century, the home was built for Thomas Welsby, a prominent Brisbane businessman, politician, historian and sportsman.

Welby lived in the home until his death in 1941, with the property remaining in the family until 1952, when it was bought by the CSR Ltd refinery close by.

After its stint under its ownership as a manager residence, Amity was purchased by the Commonwealth in 1980 and used as a naval residence, connected to the HMAS Moreton. 

It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992.

Its current vendor is Brisbane architect Tony Dempsey, who has owned the home since 1997.

Matt Lancashire, from Ray White New Farm, listed the property.
