first_img8 Murray Street, Townsville City.A QUEENSLANDER once owned by a Townsville mayor more than 100 years ago will be sold under the hammer.The three bedroom home at 8 Murray St, Townsville City will go to auction at 10am today.RE/MAX listing agent Garry Byrnes said George Murray, who served as Mayor between 1908 and 1916 built the house and the street was later renamed after him.“George Murray came from Scotland and he was a carpenter so he actually built 8 Murray St in 1895 and 1896,” he said.“He bought the land because in the 1880s in Townsville there was a really big property and land boom and then in the 1890s an economic depression hit Australia and slowed down the building so George Murray bought the land that was subdivided off the back of another house.“Both of his two sons were killed on the western front in WWI in France and as a result of them being killed and George Murray being in the position of Mayor, they renamed the stretch of street Murray St.”More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020The character home also has two bathrooms, two car spaces and ocean views out to Cleveland Bay.The home is positioned on 476sq m of land and has an inground pool and large outdoor deck perfect for entertaining.Mr Byrnes said the home’s Queenslander charm and prime location had attracted plenty of interest.“The house itself is really well built and it’s extremely solid with the stumps built out of brick,” he said.“It would certainly suit a young professional couple or a couple who are downsizing but still want to stay in the city.“Queenslanders always have a romance about them but some people today see Queenslanders as too much work, but with new building products that has to some degree been nullified.”The home will be open for inspection from 9.45am before the auction.
