Resting pride of place atop a sprawling 1,879m2 elevated corner, double allotment, this grand colonial home has been extensively renovated inside and out to create a haven that exudes an estate look and feel.
Showcasing timeless grace and a commanding presence, an automatic gate permits access to the expansive grounds filled with sprawling lawns and established, landscaped gardens. Positioned to take maximum advantage of the desirable aspect, this magnificent residence is a true rarity in the Brisbane landscape.
Flawlessly composed of a series of state-of-the-art appointments seamlessly complementing the home's original features, the interiors are adorned with soaring ceilings, ornate cornices, exquisite chandeliers and polished timber floors.
At the heart of the residence, a double-flue fireplace ensures the 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. Alternatively, one can make use of the ducted and zoned air-conditioning to either heat or warm the house.
The gourmet kitchen has been thoughtfully designed for the resident cook. Overlooking the main lounge and dining areas, this culinary haven features an open style layout equipped with granite benchtops, an Aqua One filter system, timeless white cabinetry, an ILVE gas cooktop and rangehood, and a whisper-quiet Miele dishwasher. Revealing a butler's pantry with additional storage, a Shaws Classic sink, and plumbing for a coffee machine, this setting is complete with stunning French windows framing the scenic garden views.
Flowing effortlessly off the kitchen, the elevated rear deck harnesses a sweeping north-eastern aspect to create the perfect entertainer's oasis with mesmerising vistas over Coorparoo Heights. Presenting further destinations for entertaining, downstairs unveils a marine carpeted and sandstone lined patio positioned to overlook the saltwater pool. A blissful alfresco escape, the pool is kept temperate with solar heating and an electric heat pump. After your swim, enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the large steam room and outdoor gym. Boasting expansive grounds and endless outdoor space, the bountiful lawns present room for children to play and the potential to install a north-south tennis court.
Positioned across the upper floor are four generously sized bedrooms, including the sensational master featuring a lavish ensuite extending into an enormous walk-in robe. The further three bedrooms are each fitted with built-in robes and are serviced by two separate family bathrooms. Finalising this flowing level is an atrium-style office wrapped in a wall of French windows inviting in natural light and outlooks over the gardens. Accompanied by a nearby study nook, there is endless work and study space for children and parents.
Completing the home is a laundry, extensive storage beneath the house and secure garages with space for five cars. Two 5,000 litre water tanks, four wall-mounted televisions, ample linen storage, heated towel racks in the master ensuite, retrofitted double glazing in the bedrooms, and generously applied premium-quality thermal and insulation. Thick Earthwool Batts have been installed throughout the house, in the roof space, underneath the floorboards and in the south-facing wall. Double-bolt deadlocks on all windows and doors, high fences, sensor lights, a state-of-the-art camera system supporting remote access, and a Back to Base Alarm System.
Blending the best of both worlds, this residence offers the peace and privacy of a grand estate while benefiting from the many conveniences of trendy suburbia. Located in a blue-chip suburb, you are just a short walk to cafes, restaurants, specialty stores, public transport and local parks. Renowned schools including Loreto College, Coorparoo State School, Somerville, Churchie and Villanova College are just minutes away. Residents will also adore the ease of access to Greenslopes, Princess Alexandra and Queensland Children's Hospitals, as well as Camp Hill Marketplace, Coorparoo Square and Westfield Carindale.
