639m2 Charmer, footsteps from Oxford Street
Recently renovated to add luxurious modern finishes to its timeless character, this home offers families the consummate Bulimba lifestyle with plenty of options for future growth.
Perched near the crest in an exclusive street just a few moments stroll from Oxford Street’s cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops, the stately home features a classic gabled entryway enhanced by lush subtropical greenery. The expansive fully fenced frontage provides a taste of the space and versatility within, where grand central living areas and large gardens are accompanied by enough room to accommodate multiple cars and boat or caravan.
Elegant details include the soaring 3.2-metre-high ceilings, archway, VJ walls, timber floors and fretwork. This warmth is contrasted with the as-new contemporary kitchen and bathrooms.
The air-conditioned home captures natural northern light and cooling hilltop breezes, with fly screening across the casement windows and ceiling fans allowing for year-round enjoyment.
Relax and entertain in the open plan living area, spacious enough for oversized dining and lounge furniture. Or head onto the front veranda for sundowners amongst the Palms.
Bedrooms are all generously sized and positioned to allow for privacy of the 3rd bedroom with access to its own bathroom. There is space for a separate study or home working desk also.
The secure, private rear garden is perfect for pets and kids to explore, but also offers scope for re-landscaping or the inclusion of a swimming pool. There is also potential for a further extension of the home to the rear or northern side for those seeking to add living space, bedrooms, or additional alfresco areas.
In the meantime, an oversized, extra-height remote double garage with an internal staircase provides the option for use as an additional living space, such as for a media or games room, a teenager’s retreat, a private space for an elderly parent, or a separate rental flat for an extra income.
Repainted inside and out as well as fitted with a new Colorbond Coolmax steel roof and fresh insulation, the property also boasts a stunning kitchen with stone benchtops, sleek soft-close cabinetry and European appliances including induction cooktop, integrated microwave and dishwasher. A 1.5KW solar system and 400L solar hot water are accompanied by a solar roof ventilator, town gas, garden sprinkler system, electric front gates, keyless home entry and an abundance of storage. A magnificent herb garden and banana and macadamia trees are just some of the edible delights found in the garden.
This exclusive yet neighbourly address is just a short stroll to the Bulimba City Cat terminal, Riverwalk and beautiful Memorial and Riverside Parks. A choice of great coffee houses, delicious eateries, boutiques and specialty shops, pubs and micro-breweries, Woolworths supermarket and cinemas are literally on the doorstep. Residents also have access to diverse health and fitness amenities at the end of the street, from gyms to medical and dental practices. Located within the catchment of the coveted Bulimba State School and minutes from a choice of other elite colleges and excellent childcare, the area enjoys outstanding connectivity with Teneriffe, New Farm, South Bank, universities and the CBD just 4km away.
A home that will appeal to either the growing family or downsizers who love the outdoors and entertaining, and living in a walker’s paradise, this charming and central address is a must-view.
