Luxury Hamilton pad goes to auction
PHAR LAP won the Melbourne Cup and Errol Flynn was Australia’s new showbiz heart-throb when this Queenslander settled in to the Brisbane landscape at 11 Eblin Drive, Hamilton.
The 1930s also saw the great depression with Queenslanders turning their fertile backyards into mini farms to keep food on the table.
A place of harmony and balance, “Shalimar” pays homage to this bygone era while continuing to evolve with the city around it.
