Occupying an astounding 1879m2 corner allotment, every inch of this property is steeped in local history, a history that is easily evoked by the numerous original features that have been lovingly maintained.
Instilling a sense of grandeur almost immediately, an automatic gate permits access to the property, revealing the expansive grounds which have been landscaped with manicured gardens filled with a wide array of exotic plants and shaded by deep-rooted greenery.
Situated prominently at the centre of the property is the magnificent residence. This majestic, Colonial home has been extensively renovated inside and out, resulting in a home that boasts an estate look and feel that is far from rustic. Making your way inside, the home's graceful interiors are a statement in how to elegantly blend old and new, with a series of state-of-the-art appointments seamlessly complementing the home's original features.
Soaring ceilings adorned with ornate cornices and chandeliers come together with polished timber floors to create an inviting main living room with an undeniable sense of space. At the heart of the home, a double-flue fireplace ensures these living spaces are always comfortable in the colder months, while the French doors and windows that line the walls allow gentle breezes to permeate throughout the home in summer.
Overlooking the main lounge and dining areas is the gourmet kitchen - a dream space for the resident cook. This culinary highlight features a galley style layout, complete with stone benchtops, Aqua One filter system, timeless white timber cabinetry and a suite of stainless steel appliances, including an ILVE gas cooktop and rangehood. Finishing the kitchen is a spacious scullery appointed with additional storage, sink and benchtop space. Steps from the kitchen and capturing a sweeping north-eastern aspect, the elevated rear deck is a fantastic spot to host friends and family for a delectable evening meal or afternoon barbeque, while enjoying sprawling views of Coorparoo Heights.
Spaced throughout the home are four generously sized bedrooms, including the majestic master which features a lavish ensuite that transitions into an enormous walk-in robe. The further three bedrooms are each fitted with built-in robes, while two of the bedrooms feature soft carpet and are serviced by separate nearby bathrooms.
Finishing the upper level is a spacious, light-filled office featuring a wall of French windows looking out to the lush garden. This home office is blissfully quiet and certain to enhance concentration as one has the feeling of working amidst the gorgeous gardens.
Downstairs offers more capacity for entertaining, with a delightful Sandstone patio positioned to overlook the salt-water pool - which is solar-heated to guarantee year-round use. When the sun is not shining, there is an electric heat pump to warm the pool. This alfresco area also features a large steam room to therapeutically relax muscles after a solid swim. There is bountiful lawn space for children and pets to play. With so much room, there also exists the realistic option of installing a tennis court and thereby elevating the home to the next level.
Completing the home is a dedicated laundry, extensive storage area found beneath the home and secure garages with space for five cars. Other notable features include ducted and zoned air conditioning, extensive linen storage; retrofitted double glazing in the bedrooms; as well as premium-quality thermal and acoustic insulation. Earthwood Batts have been installed in the roof space, underneath the floorboards and in the South-facing wall. The Batts are complemented by Acoustiblok above three of the bedrooms, the hallway and the South-facing wall. Security is augmented by double bolt deadlocks on all windows, high focus sensor lights, state of the art camera system which can be accessed remotely and Back to Base alarm system.
With a property so vast, so quiet and so immensely private, it would be more fitting to describe this residence as an estate, but an estate that benefits from the many conveniences of being located in the middle of suburbia.
Located in a blue-chip area, it's just a short trip to shopping centres, cafes, speciality stores, public transport and a number of local parks. Reputable schools are also within a stone's throw, with Loreto College, Coorparoo State School, Somerville, Anglican Church Grammar (Churchie) and Villanova College all within minutes' drive.
