Beautiful Historic Queenslander - Deceased Estate

This charming Worongary Queenslander not only has an incredible history, but may be one of the oldest homes in the area available on the market.

One of the pioneers or the Gold Coast, Mr William Laver, originally built the home in the 1890's. It was used for the dairy farmers accommodation and sat on it's original site where Robina Town Centre now lies. William and Margaret Laver owned the Mudgeeraba Hotel, dairy farms and in 1914m William's son in law, Ben Franklin was commissioned by William to build a new hotel, to be known as the Exchange Hotel, which later became the Wallaby hotel in 1950.

In 1990, the family had the home moved to it's current site and it had a makeover downstairs.

The home is a truly rare slice of history boasting original wide timber floorboards, soaring ceilings and those ornate cornices and trimmings synonymous with bygone era workmanship. The timbers are milled locally and the home we constructed by the Franklin Brothers who built the Wallaby Hotel.
