This stately timber home, overlooking the bay, was constructed circa. 1910 for Albert Henry Sargeant, an engineer. As members of the successful Brisbane engineering and ironmongery business, Sargeant & Co., on Alice Street in the city, the house reflects this success. Named ‘Britannia’, the house is situated on a prominent corner site and makes a strong contribution to the streetscape. ‘Britannia’ is a fine example of Wynnum’s suburban growth in this era, as it increasingly became a sought after seaside residential address.
