Award-winning architectural home in prestigious Balmoral
The ultimate family and entertainers' sanctuary, The Folkhouse invites you to enjoy all the advantages of living in one of Brisbane's most-loved suburbs. Winner of JBS Construction's 2017 Masters Builders Housing & Construction award for home renovations and a 2016 Brisbane Open House event entrant, this four-bedroom residence on a 513sqm allotment has been expertly renovated by the renowned Shaun Lockyer Architects and JBS Builders.
Seamlessly fusing a pre-war cottage with a modern retreat, the dual-level home with a swimming pool and sophisticated interiors is a true masterpiece. Showcasing exquisite traditional details such as pitched gabled roofs, stained-glass windows and a beautiful stucco and weatherboard exterior, the property also features lofty ceilings, polished concrete floors, timber accents, magnificent voids and banks of full-height glass.
Crafted to allow ease-of-living, the residence continues from its welcoming entry to an incredibly spacious open-plan living and dining area on the ground level. Capturing plenty of natural light and refreshing breezes, this immaculate central area is presented with built-in seating and louvered windows.
You will also find a functional study nook, as well as an enviable gourmet kitchen displaying a breakfast bar, a butler's pantry, ample cupboard storage and a Zip HydroTap. A full suite of premium Miele appliances includes a self-cleaning combi-steam oven, an induction cooktop and a gas wok.
Encouraging indoor-outdoor living, stacked glass sliding doors open out to a generous covered al fresco area with a fireplace and an outdoor kitchen. There is also a large fully-fenced grassed rear yard, plus landscaped gardens and a luxe glass-framed in-ground swimming pool with a waterfall feature.
Finishing the ground level is a tidy powder room and an internal laundry with side access, while a sizeable family room is situated upstairs. Steps away, a lavish master suite encompasses a walk-in robe and a private balcony. An opulent ensuite boasts dual vanities, floor-to-ceiling tiling and a separate shower, freestanding bath and toilet.
Three additional bedrooms are serviced by two well-appointed main bathrooms. Two bedrooms are fitted with built-in robes; the third can also double as a study.
Complete with a secure dual garage and a workshop on the ground level, the home also benefits from a garden house, a fish pond, 6.6kw solar panels with 6.5kw LG battery, ducted air-conditioning, ceiling fans, rainwater tanks and a security system.
Minutes from fashionable Oxford Street and Hawthorne Road's attractions, the property is also close to the Bulimba Ferry Terminal and the soon-to-be-constructed Bulimba Barracks precinct. Brisbane's CBD is just six kilometres away.
Falling within the Bulimba State School and Balmoral State High School catchment areas, this phenomenal residence is also a short drive from Saints Peter and Paul's School, Lourdes Hill College and Anglican Church Grammar School.
