The Bourbon House

This property sold in 2010 for a large sum of money. It overlooks the harbour and Fannie Bay from East Point Rd. It’s known locally as the Jim Beam house though I’ve always known it as the Bourbon house…so called  because the original owner was an importer of that beverage (rather popular in the NT). In 2011 the house was given an extensive makeover so it now looks both more modern and more colonial simultaneously. In a little twist of fate, the new owner is said to have worked as a labourer on its construction several decades ago.
