Hughesville, a heritage-listed home in Queensland's Eight Mile Plains, has sold for $1.3 million.

It is set to become real estate offices.

After spending over four years on the market, I-Sale Property bought 2497 Logan Road which had $1.7 million hopes in February 2012.

It was only the fourth time the home has traded since 1892. It last sold for $1 million in 2007 to Bennett Carroll Solicitors.

Designed by architect George Campbell-Wilson, Hughesville was originally built as a wedding gift for local horse dealer Richard Hughes. It remained in the Hughes family for a century.

Its original grandeur was restored in 2004 after plans were approved by the Queensland heritage council. 

Set on 3366 sqm, the Queenslander has three offices and a meeting room.

In the late 1990s Hughesville was featured as a home being renovated by a couple in a XXXX brewing commercial.

MV Real Estate selling agent Lynda Roberts said it was difficult finding the right buyer due to its heritage restrictions.

“There was a lot of people wanting to use it as a wedding venue, but couldn’t due to the tight restrictions,” she said.
