We are in extraordinary times and this is an extraordinary opportunity. This grand character home built in 1927 occupies a 910m2 block in a prime inner city location. The proximity and benefits of inner city living is uniquely concealed by a tropical and mature garden which naturally blends into the adjoining rear park to provide perfect privacy.
From the street, the home is beautifully but discreetly presented. Inside, it is very generously sized and welcoming, with two levels of living. At the front of the property is a sunlight office, with French doors opening to a picturesque stone paved courtyard, making this an ideal setting to work from home.
There is a large, combined lounge and dining area with soaring ceilings and an internal archway, polished timber floors and VJ walls. Positioned at the rear of the home is the bright and open kitchen with an adjoining meals area. This accesses an enormous back deck, which is surrounded by established trees and palms, creating a private and lush oasis - the perfect space to entertain or just relax and forget about the world!
There are three bedrooms on the upper level; the Master has an ensuite, built-in storage and an adjoining room that has been used as a baby's nursery, but would also be an ideal walk-in robe. The other two bedrooms cleverly access a side sleepout that's been converted into a fantastic play area. These bedrooms share a bathroom and there is a separate powder room for guests. The laundry is also conveniently on this level.
Downstairs there is a large carport and accommodation for at least three vehicles off-street. There is a huge rumpus, perfect for games, watching TV or for poolside parties. There is also a generously sized bedroom, with built-in cupboards, a bathroom and an additional lockable storage room.
The resort-style swimming pool has been completely renovated; it's been resurfaced, there are new glass tiles, LED lighting, automated chlorine and chemical monitoring, plus solar heating means it can be enjoyed all year round. The fully fenced yard has extensive planting; a shed for equipment and remote operated garden and pool lighting creates a picturesque evening setting.
This is a really beautiful and comfortable home; there is split system a/c throughout, secure entry, it has a near-new industrial grade thickness colour-bond roof with double sized guttering, gutter guards and fresh modern paint internally.
The location is central and so convenient, with easy access to the city, Toowong Village and Paddington. Toowong Memorial Park is at the end of the street, it's a short walk to The Wesley Hospital, the Auchenflower train Station, the Regatta City Cat terminal and the riverside bike path. All within walking or electric scooter distance.
Beautiful, character filled inner-city properties such as this, on blocks this size are preciously rare and definitely don't come up every day - don't let this opportunity slip away.
