Welcome to Maritimo

Maritimo represents the very essence of traditional elegance, a residence of rare beauty and distinction. Built in 1925 and designed by Hall and Prentice, iconic Maritimo is arguably Brisbane’s finest heritage riverfront property, a wonderfully grand example of both the California bungalow and the fruits of a prosperous decade in which she was built. An inspired combination of Art Deco and Art Nouveau architecture,  Maritimo possesses the enviable combination of prestige and position, occupying a sprawling, northeast facing 2300 m2 of land and features extensive panoramic views from all 3 levels.

Maritimo was built for and by the prominent builder George Henry Turner, who also built Nazareth House, New Farm Power House, Light Street tram Depot and the BASFS Building in the CBD.

In 1994 this residence was featured in the book The Queensland House - a roof over our heads with the description...
“The mature development of the Bungalow style is demonstrated in this first-class house designed by Hall and Prentice by a master builder for his own use”.

Unlike its neighbours “Maritimo” is one of a few properties which has not been subdivided retaining its relationship to the Brisbane River through the retention of its original boundaries and its scenic presentation at the back.
