The bringing of this property into the market, and placing it for competition before an enlightened public, is preferred by the owner to yielding to the demands made for the purchase of portions of it, thus no favor is shown, and an opportunity is now afforded, and it must be remembered that such opportunities rarely occur, but that such
AN ONE AS THIS CAN NEVER COME AGAIN,
for those who desire it, of possessing themselves of property in the Metropolis of Queensland, (there is no doubt - THAT NOW, and there never was, in properly balanced minds) as to be worth expending a small fortune upon, in the creation of an Ancestral Domain, or Park, or Lodge, to be handed down from one generation to another, as something worth inheriting.
Lands of questionable character for position, may have their small advantages aggravated, so as to conceal their defects, but in this case such an attempt would be a burlesque. Let any one with a plan in his head (and the Auctioneer or Surveyor will supply one gratis to any intending purchaser), go over the Lots, and if, after that, he can find the equal to this Property in or about the place, let him buy it, if he can. Now look at the advantages here, without "Piling it up," as our American friends call it:-
Splendid Property - Reasonable Prices - Most Easy Terms - Title Unexceptionable - There is nothing left to desire.
Terms - 25 per cent, on fall of the hammer; remainder at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months; bills bearing interest, 6 per cent.
