This is a rare opportunity to secure an extraordinary property in one of Brisbane's most exclusive streets.

Commanding a 1411m2 block atop Paddington's highest hill, complete with tennis court and sensational swimming pool, this superb home enjoys sweeping, unobstructed views from the CBD across the suburbs to the Scenic Rim and beyond. It will simply take your breath away.

The home is a stately 1930's era bungalow, surrounded by expanses of luscious lawn and lovingly tended gardens. It is rich with character and appeal, with high ceilings, elegant wall paneling and original leadlight windows and doors that sparkle like jewels.

The open plan and spacious kitchen, dining and living area opens directly onto the north facing lawn and pool terrace. Surrounded by windows and French doors, this beautiful space is awash with light and enjoys an incredible outlook. Capturing a view can occasionally mean sacrificing a connection with the garden; however this home is blessed with both.

The swimming pool and striking, concrete pavilion houses an integrated BBQ area and drinks fridge and there is direct access to the tennis court below. No expense was spared on this space and it is perfect for entertaining - it offers the chance to enjoy a truly enviable lifestyle.

The kitchen is large, with plenty of storage and updated appliances including a Smeg oven and Miele dishwasher. There is also a separate formal lounge area, currently used as a billiards room that feature a wonderful window seat, with an outlook over the tennis court and across Brisbane.

There are three bedrooms on the upper level, including the very spacious Master. There is also a brilliantly practical mudroom upon entry, with a wall of built-in storage. The main bathroom has been renovated in a luxe, timeless style, with marble bench tops, marble mosaic tiles and designer fixtures. It has been cleverly designed to create a separate powder room and wash area - perfect for busy family life.

The lower level has timber parquetry flooring and a casual living area. There is another multi-purpose room, ideal as a fourth bedroom, a library or study. There is direct access to the tennis court - one of the few private courts in this inner city suburb. There is also a bathroom on this level and the laundry, which opens onto a covered drying area, painted in a magnificent shade of candy pink! It's hard to hate doing the chores in this setting.

There is off-street parking for two vehicles, with direct access to the property. The home also comes with plans by acclaimed architect Shaun Lockyer for additional renovations to the main home.

This location is hard to beat - it is private and secluded, yet just a short stroll down to the heart of Paddington and within easy reach of the CBD. Everything is at your fingertips, from shops, cafes, transport and schools.

This truly is a rare opportunity to secure a magnificent inner city estate, offering the chance to enjoy an unparalleled lifestyle.
