The Brisbane bold home with rich history, Avondale, has been listed for sale by Sam Mayes and Zac Tully from Ray White.

It is built in 1912 by William Francis Corbett, a lawyer from Toorak Road in Hamilton, who also owned the Carlton Hotel in Queen Street. 

Avondale has enjoyed a rich history serving as a boarding house in the 1950s before becoming home to a well-known journalist and then a prominent Brisbane builder, who completed significant expansions in the 1980s.

It last sold in 2012 at $2.5 million.
