Perched on Dutton Park's largest land holding, 'Kurrowah', completed in 1918, was constructed with the finest materials shipped from France and Italy. It now stands as a testament to the classic design of renowned architect Lang Powell, offering an opportunity to secure a grand piece of architectural history.
Traditional design and sophisticated interior details define this home from the first moment you step through the doors. Be greeted by an imposing hallway boasting rich timber accents and soaring decorative ceilings. Extending through the length of the house, the hallway leads to defined formal and casual living and entertaining spaces. The main living areas depict the style and craftsmanship of the era in which this home was built, with rich timber panelling, ornate fireplaces, exposed beams and intricate plaster detailing features throughout.
Galleries of windows maximise the natural light and cooling breezes throughout the home, while French doors open at several points to an extensive verandah overlooking the expansive grounds and further, on to the rolling panoramic Brisbane landscape.
