RUSSELL ASSOCIATION'S LAND.
The grandest part of North Brisbane with a most extensive frontage to the Brisbane River, which is divided into about 50 Magnificent River Frontages, with fine roads running through all parts of the New Farm Estate to the River, thereby affording all purchasers in the New Farm Estate access to the Brisbane River.
JAMES R. DICKSON & COMPANY have been favoured, with instructions from the Russell Land Association, to sell by Public Auction, on the Ground, on Saturday Afternoon, October 22nd, at 2 p.m. sharp, their magnificent New Farm property, well known as the OLD RACECOURSE, being subdivisions of sections 7, 8, 9, and resubdivisions of subdivisions of sections 1 to 6, of portions 21, 22, 29 and 30, Parish of North Brisbane, now subdivided into 304 magnificent building sites, 51 of which are magnificent river frontages, one of the charming features of the Estate. The remaining sites all front splendidly laid out roads, of which there is not one single road in this charming Estate less than a full chain in width.
The whole Estate is beautifully laid out in sections, so that purchasers securing two allotments in depth will have frontages to two roads, each one chain wide.
The NEW FARM ESTATE being placed on the market, is undoubtedly one of the events of the year 1887 which will give great satisfaction to the many hundreds who have been in the past clamouring for the chances of securing homes in this Grand Estate, and the pick, not only of the suburbs, but of the TOWN OF NORTH BRISBANE.
Those who are now anxiously awaiting the day of sale, Saturday October 22, should bear in mind:
Now that the bare facts have so far been merely outlined, as far as space and time permit the Auctioneers sincerely request all those who know how to appreciate a really good article to inspect the Russell Association's New Farm property, Old Racecourse, before the day of sale, to make their selections, so that no time may be wasted once the sale commences, which will be sharp at the hour of two o'clock p.m.
And to rest assured that the title is under the Real Property Act.
