Magnificent character estates such as this are becoming increasingly rare in Brisbane's desirable inner city suburbs.
This beautiful home, built in 1912 is being presented to the market for the first time in more than 30 years. It offers buyers the chance to secure an extraordinary property on an expansive, elevated block and the lifestyle it promises.
Upon entry, there are spacious and elegant formal rooms opening onto deep verandahs, creating an easy indoor/outdoor flow. An open fireplace, with an ornate silky-oak surround is the perfect spot during cooler months.
The rear of the home is dedicated to informal and family living spaces. The kitchen has been updated and features double Ilve ovens, plenty of storage and a gas cook top. There is an adjoining casual meals area and an expansive north-facing rear deck, from where you can enjoy a picturesque and quintessential Brisbane outlook. This home is blessed with numerous spaces to relax or entertain in style and has hosted countless gatherings and parties for up to 100 people.
There are three spacious bedrooms on the upper level, including the Master that has an adjoining dressing room and ensuite. The main bathroom has twin vanities and a separate powder room. There is also a well-equipped study with integrated desk and storage.
Internal stairs lead to the lower level that has a classic, yet contemporary feel with soaring ceilings and parquetry floors. There is a huge rumpus room with a bar and a second fireplace. It opens onto the covered terrace, enormous swimming pool, established gardens and lawn - and there's even a cricket pitch! This is an exceptional place to live, relax and socialise for family members of all ages.
There are two bedrooms on the lower level, both with built-in storage and a modern bathroom. There is also a climate-controlled wine cellar, laundry, an abundance of storage and 2-street access. The property has a double carport and room for more vehicles to park off-street.
The location is one of Brisbane's most highly sought after, close to a range of schools, transport and lifestyle areas and within easy access to the CBD.
This is a very special home that epitomises gracious living. The current owners are now empty nesters, so it's the right time for a new family to contribute to this property's rich history.
