Boasting an illustrious history, this utterly beautiful property effortlessly marries a Hamptons-style design with a modern American-inspired aesthetic. The result - undeniable elegance and a coveted location. Positioned in the middle of the quiet and tree-lined Newmarket Street, this truly exquisite abode with a swimming pool and a pool house is the ideal home by Innovare.
Once the residence of a champion racehorse trainer and one of Queensland's most awarded thoroughbreds, Bore Head, the six-bedroom home has been completely reimagined like its neighbouring sister property to offer a sense of modern luxury. Housing the winner of the 1965 Caulfield Cup and a slew of other prestigious titles, this transformed residence will impress with its west-facing-rear aspect and expert craftsmanship by Innovare.
