'Eleura' is a character beauty that has been lifted and modernised, to create a spacious urban sanctuary, on a flat 607m2 block in the heart of one of Brisbane's most sought after inner-city locations.
This home celebrates Queensland's love of indoor/outdoor living. Deep decks on both levels of the home offer wonderful spots to entertain or simply relax and catch the breeze, while looking over the substantial backyard and established trees. It's hard to believe this property is just over 2km from the CBD.
The upper level of the home is blessed with traditional features - polished timber floors, VJ walls, high ceilings and arches. A generously sized lounge has a fireplace and internal doors, which can be used to create two separate and versatile spaces. To one side, what would once have been a sleep out is now a large and practical office, complete with integrated desks and multiple workstations.
On the ground floor is the extraordinary, open plan living and entertaining hub of the home. This is a great space; generously sized, but unfussy and welcoming. Adorning one wall, custom shelving makes a striking and practical feature, while ideally positioned towards the rear is the well-appointed kitchen. Bi-fold doors merge the internal spaces with the covered deck, which also features an integrated BBQ and a huge swim spa, larger than most plunge pools.
The home is well positioned to maximise the yard and it is expansive, with flat lawn, a half-court for ball games, a fire pit, plus a decked seating area. Whatever the season and whatever the weather - this home offers a space for playing and entertaining.
There are five bedrooms - three upstairs, including the Master, which has walk-in storage, an ensuite and French doors to the rear deck. Each level has its own bathroom.
The home has a long list of features geared towards easy and comfortable living. There is secure remote entry, a combination of ducted and split system air-conditioning throughout and 7kw of solar with a Tesla Powerwall 2. You will find parking for three vehicles with access straight through to a large workshop or storage area. This home has also recently featured as the centrepiece for the Award-winning Under the Lino Collaborative Community History Project after hidden documents were discovered during its renovation.
The location is outstanding. It's an easy stroll to Rosalie Village, the Baroona Road Shops, Gregory and Frew Parks. There are numerous bus stops and the Milton Train Station and the CBD are within easy reach. It is in the catchment area for Milton State School and Kelvin Grove State College and a close commute to multiple Independent Schools.
This is indeed a rare opportunity, to secure a large and comfortable character home, offering superb liveability in a coveted location.
