bulimba house

bulimba

Built in 1849-1850 by early settler Andrew Petrie, this fine hand crafted Tudor style stone manor is one of Brisbane’s earliest surviving homes.

Initially it stood alone as part of a 220 acre riverine farm growing experimental cash crops of maize, barley, wheat, oats and yams under the supervision of owner and pastoralist David McConnel. His wife, Mary whose ill-health was one of the reasons for living on the hill with river breezes, never settled or got better so they sold up in 1853 and returned to England temporarily.

The house went on to appeal to a number of notables including Arthur Moore, Premier of Qld from 1929-1932, who bought the house in 1935.
