Restored to near-original condition by its current owners, the elegant residence is distinguished by its wide front verandahs, ornate iron lacework and grand French doors. Inside, lofty 12-foot ceilings with decorative cornices and roses are accompanied by hardwood floors, exposed brickwork, as well as authentic fireplaces and light fittings.
Set over two expansive levels, the home’s multiple living zones and six bedrooms offer exceptional family functionality and versatility. Whilst remaining true to its original character, the redesign has created an open modern feel with superb connection between its indoor and outdoor spaces.
The striking gourmet kitchen features a butler’s pantry, European Miele oven, gas cooktop and dishwasher, plus an expansive glass servery window out to the private entertaining courtyard. A full wall of bifold doors also connect the dining and alfresco areas, while the beautiful flow and natural light is carried through to the separate lounge via a classic sash window.
Two bedrooms on the ground level, each with verandah access, are serviced by their own bathroom. Yet, with four further bedrooms positioned together on the upper level, the option exists to utilise these bedrooms as a media room or professional home office.
One of the many special spaces in the home is the secluded upstairs master retreat with its huge sitting area and adjoining balcony offering a leafy aspect to the north. Here, parents can seek daily peace, devour a novel, enjoy a glass of Pinot or bask in the sunshine; while a separate wing accommodates the other three bedrooms.
Completing the upper level are a stylish second bathroom, sauna, and breezy verandah with lovely area views (offering a further outdoor entertaining space). Scope also exists to create a third bathroom if desired.
Additional property highlights include the unique insulation benefits of solid brick construction and double-glazed windows; reverse cycle air-conditioning; ceiling fans; extra high ceilings across both levels and gorgeous slate floors to the kitchen and dining areas. There is also a choice between enjoying the current large tranquil courtyard, creating a slightly smaller outdoor area with single parking space or repurposing it as a secure double carport. Either way, residents receive exclusive permits for unlimited street parking just outside the home.
Boasting a truly unsurpassed location with easy access to the best Brisbane has to offer, the home is footsteps from the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Southbank, and a short stroll to the waterfront walkways (a perfect fireworks vantage point) on Lower River Terrace. This perfect location is also a two-minute drive to the Pacific Motorway entry connecting directly with the city, Airport and Coast.
Ferry terminals, bus transport and a City Cycle depot are all within easy walking distance, as are popular cafes, fine riverfront restaurants, the Southbank cultural and parkland precinct, Howard Smith Wharves, Maritime Museum and major hospitals. Top schools including Anglican Church Grammar, St Joseph’s, St Laurence’s and Sommerville House as well as some of Brisbane’s premier universities are all moments away. Pick between the supermarkets and specialty stores at nearby Woolloongabba, New Farm or West End. Meanwhile, it is a short stroll to iconic local pubs including the Pineapple, Morrison and Kangaroo Point hotels, as well as the “GABBA”, where residents can take in the footy and cricket as well as the opening and closing ceremonies plus athletics during the forthcoming 2032 Olympics.
