Tucked tranquilly in the prestigious Rosalie pocket of Bardon, this high set 1930’s Queenslander will delight with its elegant character and luxurious lifestyle ease.
Boasting a magnificent north-east backdrop of flourishing greenery, “Carinya”, as the home is affectionately known, offers a secluded family retreat, just metres from fabulous local amenities, one of Brisbane’s best primary schools, and just 5km from the CBD.
With its expansive frontage, beautiful cottage-style gardens and classic triple gabled façade, the 637m2 property exudes immediate curb appeal. Inside, the original timber floors, ornate 3-metre-high ceilings, leadlight windows and rich Silky Oak detailing have been maintained to perfection. Meanwhile, the fully renovated bathroom and stylish kitchen with stone benchtops and European appliances create superb modern appeal.
A sophisticated formal lounge forms the heart of the home, with a choice of versatile breakaway zones flowing from here. To the picturesque and breezy north-east rear, an open-plan kitchen and meals area spills onto a glorious decked entertaining pavilion, perfect for both relaxed family barbeques or large-scale parties with a host of friends. A staircase leads into the lush sustainable gardens filled with tropical flowers, organic herb beds and citrus trees. There is even a chicken coop for fresh free-range eggs! A covered patio allows the family to fully immerse themselves in the sublime garden setting.
Back inside, wall-to-wall windows line a large wrap-around sunroom, where adults can bask in the treetop surrounds with a glass of Shiraz or soothing cup of tea. Children and pets can also be kept under a watchful eye as they play on the nearby fenced level lawns. This floor also accommodates three bedrooms including the beautiful master featuring classic bay windows. Plus, there is scope to easily increase the size of the third bedroom, if desired.
The lower level of the home boasts a series of well-lit and ventilated multi-purpose spaces, ideal for use as a large rumpus/games room with pool table or the ultimate “mancave/she-studio”! There is plenty of space for a home office, exceptional storage options and one room is currently being utilised as a very comfortable fourth bedroom. Already powered, plumbed with its own bathroom and sitting on a full concrete slab, potential certainly exists to further raise and renovate. (STBCCA)
Additional highlights of the fully fenced property include reverse cycle air-conditioning, ceiling fans; huge kitchen with soft close cabinetry, breakfast bar, European induction cooktop, oven and dishwasher, plumbed fridge space; 4.5kw solar panels, lock-up garaging for 3 cars and further secure off-street parking for at least three vehicles.
This peaceful elevated address is within easy walking distance of transport, local cafes, health and fitness centres, parkland and shops including the popular ‘Bardon Shed’ gourmet grocer. It is also just a 2-minute drive to the boutique Rosalie Village. Footsteps from the coveted Rainworth State School, close to St Joseph’s school, Kelvin Grove State College and kindergartens/childcare, the home is minutes to a choice of elite private schools, Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens, major arterial roads and Toowong or Indooroopilly shopping centres.
With only two owners over its entire history, this beloved home presents a unique opportunity to acquire a luxurious character home within one of Brisbane’s most beautiful neighbourhoods.
