8/294 Kent Street, TENERIFFE QLD 4005


Renovated and with stunning hill top views, No. 8 Teneriffe Place occupies the enviable position of top floor and corner apartment, enjoying absolute privacy and breezes that whisper in from your two large balconies. The residence lies a stone’s throw from trendy James Street with its buzzing cafes, restaurants and boutiques and only 3 kilometers from the city centre. Spacious, light and airy with ceiling fans and air-con in all rooms, this 2-bedroom unit also comes complete with a downstairs office/studio that is ready for business. This apartment presents a very rare opportunity to work from home or gain an extra income renting this highly sought after space.

The cooling tiles throughout this apartment together with the split-cycle airconditioning in every room ensure the residence keeps its cool even in the hottest heatwave. The open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge opens up to a north-easterly facing L-shaped entertainers’ balcony just the place for leisurely breakfasts on the weekends and it also hides the discreet laundry. Overlooking a pastoral setting of a neighbour’s vegetable patch and with magnificent tree top views, the kitchen includes ample storage, a Simpson Thermaflow oven, top-of-the-range Bosch stainless steel dishwasher and Westinghouse glass stove top of four burners.

The two bedrooms both have separate telephone points, offering two separate numbers and TV sockets. The master has built-ins and its own private balcony. There is also a family bathroom with bath, bottled tiling and shower, and a separate toilet.

The studio-come-office occupies a 15 sq.m. and comes with air-conditioning, ceiling fan, TV socket and a 3-metre high ceiling with mezzanine level for extra storage. It is completely lockable and has its own entry with toilet and sink. This studio would make an ideal artist’s studio or home office or workshop.

This solid brick complex of only 8 units includes on-site parking and parking permits (2) for the street. The apartment is currently rented for $510 per week (expiring in November), however the present owner would be happy to continue renting the property back for $510 per week for the period of 6 months. Alternatively, you could rent the downstairs area out and keep the fully self-contained apartment upstairs for yourself. There are lots of income options with this property.


A 5-minute walk from Kent Street and you’re at the parks, gardens and foreshore walks of Brisbane ‘Riverpark’ with its impressive views and relaxing greenery. A 10-minute walk the other way and you’re at the classy, designer boutiques, art-house cinema and cappuccino cafes of Centro on James Street in Fortitude Valley where night-life is at its very best. With several multi million dollar houses in Kent Street this represents smart buying.

Arts and cultural matters are catered for by the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, featuring a year-round programme of international, national and local talent in theatre, music, dance and the visual arts and the eclectic Powerhouse in neighbouring New Farm offers round the year entertainment in jazz, comedy and theatre.

Teneriffe offers an eclectic mix appealing to the family market with its prestigious New Farm Primary School and picnic-friendly Teneriffe Park and at the same time beckoning a blend of young professionals who are attracted by the cachet of the 4006 postcode. Its reputation as a destination for al fresco diners at the numerous restaurants, cafes and bistros is second only to its renown as the home of the annual Teneriffe Festival which includes a farmers, craft and fashion market, fashion parades as well as historical displays and bus tours celebrating Teneriffe’s rich history and culture.

This suburb offers a ringside seat at all events staged in the CBD yet allows you to take a breather in the pastoral ambience of the suburb itself. With its delightful mix of architecture, ranging from exquisite Victorian buildings to spicy art deco and ultra-modern statements, it maintains the quickened pulse of a racy urban centre but retains a truly charming soul.

At only 3 kilometres from the CBD and with direct ferry links to the University of Queensland and the amazing City Glider bus service which runs to West End via the city every 5-10 minutes in peak hour and a 24/7 service on Fridays and Saturdays, Teneriffe is the jewel in east Brisbane riverscape.
