This classic 1934 Queenslander on a massive north facing 1142m2 allotment on the absolute riverfront just 2.5km to the Brisbane CBD offers breathtaking panoramic views from its elevated flood-free position high above the Brisbane River looking directly across to the beautiful University of Queensland campus grounds.
Make no mistake, this is a truly rare opportunity to secure a massive inner-city allotment in a premium riverfront location and restore this grand old dame to her former glory, raise and build or seize one of the city’s best development opportunities.
Full of character and bursting with promise, this quintessential Queenslander is a renovator’s delight in the truest sense. Character features including a gable roof, wrap-around verandah, high ceilings, VJ walls, breezeways, casement windows, picture rails, French doors and timber floors bring charm and substance to this most spacious residence.
Find the home tucked away at the back of the property and climb the staircase to the front verandah. The entrance door opens into an inviting foyer leading into the main living room where two sets of French doors open onto the wide wrap-around verandahs providing a classic take on indoor/outdoor living.
Move through the passageways to the open-plan kitchen and living rooms where your 180 degree views of the river unfold. Natural light pours into these spaces and there is an undeniably homely feel about this residence that families will simply love.
The living rooms open through sliding timber doors onto the entertaining deck with a pitched roof that takes in views of the skyline and captures cooling breezes. As close to the river’s edge as only homes of this era can be, you’ll always enjoy a front row seat to this tranquil river setting watching the CityCats glide by.
The master bedroom is big and roomy with lots of wardrobe space and opens onto a private verandah with its own river views through traditional French doors. There are two additional bedrooms with built-in-robes along with a study and bathroom on the upper level.
Underneath the house you’ll find a huge enclosed area with massive potential. There is also an additional bathroom, laundry and storage room to tide you over until you bring your renovation dreams to life. Outside, enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine from the undercover patio while enjoying the river views from a different vantage point. There is also a concrete staircase that leads down to the river’s edge allowing you to get up close with nature.
As well as being in the highly coveted Brisbane State High catchment, this exceptional property includes newly installed ducted air-conditioning, ceilings fans throughout, solar hot water and 3.5kW solar panels. It’s also close to multiple riverside parklands, public transport, University of Queensland and much more.
