31 High Street, Atherton QLD
Historic Home on High Street
Originally constructed by the army in 1943 as a water tank for the troops, this unique two story home has history in its walls. By the 1950’s the tank had been decommissioned, and the Radlof family took on the job of converting it to a liveable home.
Using dynamite to blast window and door spaces through the foot thick walls where casement windows and French doors are now fixed, they installed a staircase and created a beautiful second story guestroom featuring hardwood floors and views across the Atherton Township.
Measuring over 300m² under roof, this very solid home features a well equipped kitchen with a pantry, breakfast bar, dishwasher and a large stainless fan forced oven.
The master bedroom features walk in robe and ensuite, and double doors opening onto the covered rear patio, great for relaxing and entertaining.
The gardeners will love the huge garden at the rear of the home with greenhouse framework already in place.
Previously owned by businessman Wiley Fancher who’s knowledge of Middle Eastern loans to the Whitlam government and connection to a former premier of Queensland eventually bought down the federal government, the history runs deep.
