HOOKER, SON & ELLIOTT are favoured with instructions from J. J. Lovekin, Esq., to sell by public auction on the ground, Main Waterworks Road
28 Business and Residence Sites, Opposite Mr E. Hooker's residence
on Saturday, December 17 at 3 o'clock.
That choice Property, being Subdivisions 2 to 29 of Portions 772 aud 773, Parish of Enoggera, appropriately named The Church Hill Estate, now judiciously subdivided into Allotments, comprising Business and Villa Sites, and large sized Garden Allotments, with extremely fertile soil, the property fronting the main Waterworks Road, and immediately opposite the residence and grounds of Mr. E. Hooker, with the great advantages of the two lines of the GROVE AND ASHGROVE OMNIBUSES passing and repassing the Estate at frequent intervals during the day, and the Enoggera Terrace lines of omnibuses running close thereto every few minutes, while the distance of the property from Queen street is only a comfortable walk, and THE TERMS ARE EXTREMELY LIBERAL, being only Two Shillings Deposit in the Pound, the balance for PAYMENT EXTENDING UP TO FIVE YEARS, a chance that is not likely to occur again so near to town, and surrounded by occupied properties that have lately risen immensely in value, and are growing in esteem every day.
The Auctioneers confidently assert that THE CHURCH HILL ESTATE is one of the prettiest elevations in the neighbourhood, and must commend itself to all on the look out for A CHEERY SITE FOR A HOME, a safe investment for the earnings of the industrious man, and insuring a certain return for money invested, with the probability of a large increase in value as improvements go on.
The fact of the Church of England having secured a site on the Estate, is in itself the best guarantee of its excellence, and the New Church so soon to be erected will give an immediate enhancement of value to the Estate, besides securing a tone to the locality, which must attract the attention of all in search of a residence site.
THE CHURCH HILL ESTATE has many special features of attraction, such as high land, picturesque views surrounding the locality, with the beautiful mountain scenery beyond, and the rippling waters of the famed Ithaca Creek beneath; the whole forming a vast and varied panorama, with many of nature's gifts, which go so far towards making the happy home of the suburban resident, and yet within easy reach of the city.
Mr. Hooker, sen., now retiring from the firm, has much pleasure in announcing this his Closing Outdoor Sale, and being a long resident immediately opposite the Church Hill Estate, can confidently recommend it as a most healthy and salubrious spot.
