Once in a generation opportunity- position, views and potential
Combining prestige, elevation and sweeping views, this rare 1890’s Queenslander presents a lifestyle and growth opportunity unlike any other.
With its perfect northern aspect capturing magnificent breezes and never-to-be-built-out views across the River to Hamilton Hill and Portside, the home was one of the first in the local area, representing a piece of history that offers both immediate beauty and untold potential.
The three-bedroom plus study home boasts soaring 3.9-metre high ceilings, timber floorboards, wide VJ walls and the warmth of an original brick fireplace. Already having undergone substantial renovation in recent years these character features have been impressively restored while both the kitchen and bathroom are spacious, modern and well appointed.
A central living space flows to a separate dining area where a wall of louvred windows takes full advantage of the magical vistas. Watch City Cats glide along the water by day and the Gateway Bridge lit up by night.
Boasting perhaps the largest rear garden in this tightly held pocket, it is easy to envision a huge entertaining deck extending from the interior or a full renovation to vastly expand the existing footprint of the home*. Scope also exists to build-in the ground level of the home where ceiling heights are already 3.2 metres at the highest point and river views are able to be clearly enjoyed. The home sits well forward on the block and there is excellent side access, allowing for versatility in design and construction.
Additional features include quality induction cooktop and Bosch oven, ceiling and a vast plumbed and powered lower storage/workshop/multipurpose level.
This unique address sits just 500 metres from the Apollo Road City Cat allowing residents to leave their car at home and travel to work, New Farm or Southbank along the river. It is also within the catchment and walking distance of the coveted Bulimba State School, riverside parkland and Oxford Street’s dynamic shopping, dining and entertainment precinct. Residents will also enjoy swift access to other elite colleges, the Gateway Motorway and CBD 4km away. Plus, it offers outstanding proximity to the forthcoming riverfront Barracks precinct with restaurants and markets, set to add significant value and lifestyle appeal to this already prized area.
Enjoy this home for its unsurpassed position, views and historical value or transform it into one of the area’s finest homes. Either way, it is not to be missed.
