BRISBANE entrepreneur Will Brice has been revealed as the buyer of two neighbouring properties in a prime New Farm location for a combined $6.7m.
Records show Mr Brice, who owns the US and Australian car rental site imoova.com and is the son of Wotif co-founder Andrew Brice, paid $3.85m for a property on a corner site in Moray Street.
The landmark, Federation-style Queenslander was built circa 1908, has five bedrooms, a huge wraparound veranda, and sits on a 822 sqm block.
Around the same time, Mr Brice also bought the house next door — an art deco, five-bedroom renovator, on 607 sqm of land for $2.85m.
Mr Brice and his wife, Shona, already have quite an extensive property portfolio in Brisbane, owning properties in Chelmer, Northgate, Wynnum, and a block of land on Stradbroke Island.
The Brice family also owns a beach house at 9 Yarrong Rd, Point Lookout, which they are trying to sell.
The architecturally designed home is fondly referred to by locals as ‘the Copper House’.
Mr Brice told The Courier-Mail it had been purpose-built as the ultimate beach getaway for the extended family to spend time together.
