'Bronte', circa 1884, is a colonial Queenslander forming a special part of Brisbane's history, exuding traditional Victorian-era style and fastidiously restored in recent years. This is a very rare opportunity to secure a tightly held piece of history in one of Brisbane's best inner city locations.
Comprising two parcels of prime land, spanning over a rare 2,352m2, 'Bronte' boasts an elevated position, panoramic views of the Brisbane city skyline, New Farm Park, the Humbug, and Bulimba reaches of the Brisbane River. With direct river access, this is a parcel of land with limitless potential.
The Bronte residence itself is a stunning testament to original colonial architecture. With 767m2 of multiple living spaces, it features polished timber floors, soaring ceilings, timber panelling, lead light doors and skylight, wide floorboards, bay windows, cedar doors and distinctive cast iron fencing and gates. Interior spaces are generously proportioned and exude warmth and comfort with a large combined formal lounge and dining room and original marble fireplace. This home is commercially fire rated and is equipped with spaces for a multitude of different uses.
The large kitchen with stainless steel benches and white 2pac cabinetry is perfectly positioned off the formal lounge and dining allowing for the versatility of easy integration or isolation as required.
The master suite with walk-in-robe and ensuite, large study with built in silky oak bookcases, cellar, self-contained granny flat with kitchenette and a spacious informal family room with fireplace will appeal to large families seeking space and practicality.
Outside, a large entertaining deck overlooking the extensive manicured and landscaped gardens, as well as a sparkling in ground salt water swimming pool and covered gazebo-style entertainment area makes this home an easy entertainer and a prime location for alfresco dining against the spectacular backdrop of the Brisbane River and city lights.
Other exceptional features of this outstanding residence include ducted reverse cycle air conditioning, monitored security alarms and smoke alarms, automated 4 car garage and plenty of additional off street visitor parking.
Located just 3kms from the CBD at Norman Park close to quality schools including Churchie, Lourdes Hill and Somerville House and to Bulimba's popular Oxford Street - 'Bronte' is one of a kind. It is walking distance to the Norman Park ferry. The opportunity to secure a property of this calibre comes around very rarely. Do not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.
