The only heritage-listed woolstore with direct river views, Mactaggarts Place was converted into apartments in 1995 and boasts a riverside pool and bbq area where residents love to congregate on weekends for a few drinks and steaks on the barbie (when are you guys going to invite the Hutton and Hutton Real Estate team over?!)
Positioned ideally near the Teneriffe Wharves and Bulimba rail head, the location was perfect for Dan Mactaggart’s thriving stock and station business and in 1926 the building was completed.
Hutton and Hutton Real Estate loves the enormous internal atrium, with stairs to access the higher floors (the building has no lifts). The developers managed to retain much of the apparatus of its working woolstore days, creating an authentic backdrop for its modern inhabitants.
The atrium also has plenty of storage for resident’s bikes – an ideal way to travel in the area, thanks to riverwalk’s fabulous network of paths leading to and from the CBD.
The car park is in its own building next door, accessible via the side entrance; and within the building on the Vernon St side, are several businesses, including a very cute café.
Right in the heart of the Teneriffe fun zone, you’re footsteps to local favourites including Dalgety 2.0 Public House, the Commercial Rd Antiques Centre, New Farm Park for picnics and the Saturday Powerhouse Markets as well as Gasworks (another Hutton and Hutton Real Estate favourite) for all your day to day grocery needs.
One of the great things about being on Vernon Tce is the consistency of the bus service – the quickest way to get to your CBD office, or take the Citycat as the ferry stop is directly behind Mactaggarts.
Another feature we love about this historic building are the loft bedrooms (with the New York vibes) to many of the two bedders.
Mactaggarts Place is certainly a building to contemplate if you’re looking for character with a village vibe that’s close to the CBD.
