Gorgeous character renovation and self-contained unit in an exclusive river enclave
Nestled in a setting of rare privacy and tranquillity yet enjoying easy access to the best of inner-city Brisbane, this elevated corner Queenslander has been transformed for modern liveability and versatility.
Boasting views across the River to UQ from both levels, the home’s redesign makes the most of glorious natural light, cool breezes and separation from surrounding properties.
Retaining its classic triple gabled roofline and bordered by picket-fenced cottage gardens, the main 1930’s residence combines original details with contemporary luxuries. High ornate ceilings, VJ walls, sash, bay and casement windows define the bedroom wing, while the living zones showcase rich hardwood floors and the perfect chef’s kitchen with European appliances.
Meanwhile, fully self-contained accommodation with separate access showcases a cutting-edge style of soaring ceilings and polished concrete floors. Serving as the ultimate guest or teenager’s retreat, granny flat for extended family members (with scope for disabled ramp access) or a home business/studio, the space could also be rented out to provide an additional income stream.
A fabulous layout in the main residence features expansive bi-fold doors opening the entire living space to a fan-cooled entertaining deck with a serene river and treetop aspect. Watch the City Cats glide along the water from the kitchen with its Ilve gas cooktop, oven and dishwasher, extensive bench prep space and beautiful backlit cabinetry.
Three bedrooms sit privately in their own wing, separated from the communal areas by French doors. The magnificent master retreat boasts an ensuite, walk-through dressing room and access onto a breezy semi-enclosed deck, while both bathrooms are finished with marble floor tiling and heritage style fittings including an original Royal Doulton basin.
A quality renovation also features outstanding storage solutions throughout; reverse cycle air-conditioning; ceiling fans; two laundry options; an extra-height double garage; 16 solar panels and low-maintenance gardens that still offer plenty of space for children and pets.
Positioned just one street back from the river in the prized Hill End enclave, this flood-free address provides a soothing retreat from the vibrancy of inner-city life. It is an easy stroll to the bus, City Cat, popular Paradise and Boundary Street Parks, sought-after Kurilpa childcare centre and West End’s restaurants, cafes, shops and markets. Within catchment of the coveted Brisbane State High, it also enjoys walking distance to other esteemed schools, the, Mater/Lady Cilento Hospitals and Southbank’s cultural precinct; with swift access to the CBD and universities.
We invite you to experience the unique ambience and elegance of this premier address.
