Description: Expressions Of Interest Closing 1 February 5pm
Rediscover the grace and charm of a bygone era with this glorious Queenslander. Nestled on one of Brisbane's most notable streets, this turn-of-the-century gem harnesses the best of both worlds. Not only is it modernised to meet today's needs, but it faithfully retains its period character. Situated on a 584m2 block with three street frontages, this four bedroom, three bathroom home, 2km from the CBD, will impress with its fusion of quaint tradition and contemporary functionality.
Greeting you from the ornate front gatehouse are views of the manicured hedges, low maintenance gardens and the latticed-clad front porch, with a choice to enter through the main home entrance or into the home office. Indoors, soaring 3.2m ceilings, VJ panelled walls, archways adorned with fretwork and polished floors are paired with a soothing, neutral colour palette and renovated finishes, with the end result a celebration of old meets new.
The luxury of space abounds with this home, with living zones on each level. Relax with a good book in the formal lounge, tucked behind beautiful bevelled-glass sliding doors, while a second family lounge opens to the secluded back garden. Fancy a pool? There's ample room in the backyard, should you wish to add one in.
An open-plan dining area unites with the light and bright modern kitchen, complete with Smeg gas stove, integrated dishwasher, a surplus of storage and breakfast bar. Bi-fold doors beckon you out onto an expansive entertaining deck overlooking the backyard, with roller shades ready for when extra privacy is required. At night, lay your head to rest in a choice of four generously-sized bedrooms, with ducted air-conditioning and built-in robes. Two bedrooms have ensuites, one with a spa bath.
Working from home? This property is designed to enhance this new normal. Fringed with a completely separate entrance, this 45m2 air-conditioned haven hosts a kitchenette and fully integrated sound system, making it an ideal place to run your business or create a home studio.
Parking for 4 cars also makes this a rare find in West End plus an additional landing provides plenty of room for your boat, trailer or jet-ski, all with access from the street behind Dornoch Tce. The property also benefits from a laundry, powder room, fibre optic and Foxtel connections, workshop, garden shed, gym or hobby room.
Perched in an elevated position, leave the car at home and enjoy a leisurely stroll to the West End's famous dining and entertainment precinct, riverside parks, bikeways and ferry which delivers you to the University of Queensland or City. Bus stops are on your doorstep and there's easy access to the CityGlider and CityCat. Stock up on your fresh food at the nearby produce market on Saturdays or make the 10 minute walk to Southbank and savour the parklands' vibrancy. The property is in the catchment zone for Brisbane High School and West End State School plus close to Somerville and St Laurence's College.
Reward yourself with this serene sanctuary in an eclectic and friendly community - simply move straight in and enjoy!
