This property is situated in the heart of Lutwyche, between the Kedron Park Hotel and the residence of W. H. Kent, Esq., fronting and overlooking THE KEDRON PARK RACECOURSE, which the present owners propose converting into one of the most attractive grounds for racing and sports in the colony.

It is acknowledged to be THE PICK OF LUTWYCHE, one of the most convenient, attractive and prosperous of our suburbs.
There is every facility for transit to and from the city. Omnibuses pass by every few minutes in the day.
The Lutwyche and Thorroldtown Railway Stations, where between 40 and 50 trains pass daily, are quite close, so that the position is highly convenient.
The soil, which is a great consideration in securing a residence site, is of the most fertile description, well adapted for gardening purposes.
The scenery is picturesque and charming, and will repiy inspection, even if you have no idea of buying.
The aspect is the best possible, being well sheltered from the westerly winds.
There is no dust to annoy the residents at Kedron Park.
The locality is pre-eminent for its healthiness, and, in short, everything essential to recommend a building site exists here.
The fact of the Racecourse and Sports Ground being in the centre of the property will at all times render it specially valuable for residence purposes.
What could be more attractive and enjoyable than the view of races, football, cricket, etc., which the residents on this property can command free of charge?
There can be no question as to its merits as an investment.
Lutwyche is one of the most progressive suburbs of Brisbane. Hundreds of residences from the mansion to the villa are being erected on all sides.
Prosperity is stamped on the face of the district, and from its convenience for transit to and from the City, surroundings which are fashionable enough to satisfy the most fastidious, and the salubrious nature of the locality must continue to PROGRESS RAPIDLY until it will be difficult to obtain ANY BUILDING SITES at all, consequently you cannot make a mistake in buying here.
The terms which the vendors offer are specially framed to meet all classes.

Anybody desirous of paying cash in full will be allowed 2 1/2 per cent, discount, while those who pay up within six months will be charged no interest, and those who pay in full within 12 months will only be charged 6 per cent, interest.
These terms, which are about as-easy as could well be designed, coupled with liberal assistance to build, should commend this sale to everybody who are not already the owners of their own homes.
