Standing majestically upon a sprawling 1,613m2 estate, landmark homestead “Chelhaven” has graced prestigious Chelmer with its presence since 1889.
Located in Chelmer's highest point, this property was designed by prominent architects, Oakden, Addison and Kemp, who were also responsible for the Old Museum Building. Since then, just a select few families have had the honour of owning this iconic home, making this such a rare and special opportunity.
Proudly overlooking magnificent grounds with historical trees, gardens, and lawn court the grandeur of this colonial is absolute. Intricate fretwork breezeways and an expansive wraparound verandah create an imposing and stately facade, while within, the interior captures the romance and splendour of a bygone era.
Rich in original period features of VJ panelling, 4 metre high ceilings with ornate roses and stained glass windows, this residence is steeped in history. Spacious rooms of grand proportions are a nod to yesteryear, with a traditional fireplace in the formal living room.
Chelhaven has endured the years with pride and dignity and stands in beautiful original condition. A meticulous restoration of the homestead and the surrounding grounds would see it returned to its former glory, further enhancing its mark on the suburbs.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure an unrivalled piece of Brisbane's history. Experience Chelhaven in person.
