Hawthorne Homes

Hawthorne is renowned for its grand riverfront mansions located on Aaron Ave and Virginia Ave. But its most luxurious properties are located along Hawthorne’s riverfront. They come complete with private jetties pontoons and inner city and water views.
In the avenues behind the river, you can find glorious wide, tree-lined streets. They are filled with classic homes on large and split blocks of land. Hawthorne is also home to nine heritage listed properties located on Amy St, Barton Rd, Hawthorne Rd and Virginia Ave.
A stroll around these streets will give you an appreciation of these stunningly restored 19th Century Queenslanders. Townhouses are also a small part of Hawthorne’s property landscape and are a popular option for downsizers and mature singles.
