Prompted by a psychic’s predictions, Nicole Terracin’s purchase of 101 Herston Road, Kelvin Grove, led to surprising discoveries – from hidden passageways to unexpected romance.

“The market was so hot, and I was getting frustrated because I kept missing out on homes that I loved,” Ms. Terracin said.

“My friend who is a broker kept telling me not to worry, because I was waiting to find a house with a tunnel.

The gorgeous master bathroom at 101 Herston Rd, Kelvin Grove features a porcelain bathtub.

“I thought it was a really weird thing to say that, so imagine my surprise when I bought this house and discovered that it actually had a tunnel that ran down the entire width.”

Built in 1860, 101 Herston Road is more than just a residence, it is a tangible reflection of Brisbane’s diverse history.

The tunnel, now a storage space, is believed to have been linked to a former neighbor of the notorious L’Estrange family who was known for his eccentricities.

The mystery and magic of 101 Herston Rd, Kelvin Grove is set on a 1045 sq m property.

“In those days, L’Estrange had a lot of unusual things like a pet emu and a miniature version of the Roman baths,” Terracin said.

“I’m not sure why the two houses are connected, but the romantic in me thought of so many possibilities.”

And the revelation of an underground secret wasn’t the only surprise for Ms. Terracin – the title also proved to be a talisman for unexpected love.

101 Hairston Road, Kelvin Grove has been home to a mysterious past.

“When I came here, I was completely devastated, and I remember feeling immediately that this house would heal me,” she said.

“And it healed me. I met the love of my life when I was 56.”

“I call this house Madame, and from the first moment I entered it, she welcomed me, but I never felt that I owned her, much more that I had been her guardian for some time.”

101 Herston Rd, Kelvin Grove was completely refurbished in 2018 adding to the sophistication and charm of the property.

Mrs. Terracin credits her good fortune with making her feel “calm, centered, and loved.”

“I’ve dealt with real estate my whole life as an architect and I’ve never felt like this — it’s such an incredibly warm and beautiful feeling,” she said.

Located on the market across from Place Newmarket, 101 Herston Road is a three-bedroom, three-bathroom heritage property that has maintained stately echoes of times past with all the trappings of modern living.
