This home is a true piece of Queensland history, it was built by David Slawson who originally brought the site around the turn of the century. David was a pastry cook who left England and started a business in the Valley next to Thomas Charles Beirnes. It has seen the likes of Dame Nellie Melba who sang while Florence Slawson played the piano. It has been in the family for over 100 years, David’s daughter inherited the property and married David Gordon who owned the Redland Bay Hotel and was the clerk of Tingalpa Shire before the Redland Bay Shire existed. Ian Gordon has now decided to pass on this beautiful home so other can ensure its extensive history continues.
