Half a house to go under the hammer in Brisbane

“Half a house” in Brisbane, which saw the top floor gutted by fire, is set to go to auction.

According to, in February this year, a neighbour rescued two people from inside the Brisbane home, who were unaware the property was on fire. 

A man was downstairs and a woman was upstairs were saved from the blaze by the heroic neighbour who ushered the pair to safety.

The official listing shows that the lower level of the property is still in good condition, while the fire in the upper level has left walls blackened, with furniture and possessions all but destroyed.

“It is rare to find a home that has so many options, this residence really allows you to choose your path and lets you put your own touches in,” the Junction Estate Agents listing says.

“It’s weird to invite someone to look at a blank canvas, but weirdly enough, it’s a must-see.”

The property at 1A Leura Avenue in the suburb of Hawthorne is now a knockdown proposition but also has the potential to be rebuilt.

The home sits on a 406sq m block of land in a prime location in Brisbane, just 500m from the river.

The street boasts a combination of beautiful trees and gorgeous homes making it a perfect spot for a potential buyer to come in and rebuild or salvage what’s left of the property.

Built in 1999, the property doesn’t hold the caveats of a heritage property, allowing for redevelopment.

The property will go to auction on November 26 at 10am.
