    Secluded, exclusive and anchored into the hillside at the end of a secure gated driveway, the sweeping classic style of this c. 1920 built home has been elegantly transformed; a superbly engineered, cantilevered addition doubling the Queenslander’s dimensions. Capturing natural breezes and captivating vistas across Ascot to Hamilton Hill, the bold redesign has delivered voluminous, light-filled living and poolside entertaining areas where connection and relaxation beckons. Situated within Clayfield’s prestigious schools precinct, there is an immediate opportunity to consider further renovations and individualise design input, with prepared project drawings available.

    Occupying two generous levels, this quietly situated home is a sanctuary for busy parents and sets the stage for children of all ages to grow and learn, play and be active. With five versatile bedrooms, indoor and outdoor living and study areas on both floors, a loft level gym or games zone and the security of having off-street areas on which to ride bikes safely now and park cars upon later, this residence is perfect for families with its walk to school proximity.

    Having a most desirable north-south aspect, an ultra-private, 794m2 lush-foliaged allotment and a striking elevation from the front, this previously raised, majorly renovated Queenslander and recent architectural extension is a design triumph that perfectly rests within its environment.

    A concept initiated by the current owners and expertly brought to fruition by award winning building designer Jonathan Harris, the demanding project was executed with precision by high-end residential builder, Scott Harris Constructions in 2017.

    The home’s stunning new living space with a 3 ½ metre long cantilever overhang delivers a suspended, treetops-like feel, without hindering vehicle parking and turnaround below. Simply eye-catching, this open plan voluminous room has high ceilings, Spotted Gum floors and rich, Rosewood joinery highlights. Custom designed, full window openings enable far reaching, city-fringe outlooks and a flow that connects effortlessly to the idyllic, north-facing outdoor entertaining terrace, inground saltwater pool, level lawn and dense, private gardens.

    Plans have been professionally drawn up to develop one end of this vast space into a brand new, upscale kitchen destination, being just steps from the home’s barbecue and alfresco area, with full width, bifold window passthrough and dedicated butler’s pantry storage room already in place.

    With a family rumpus, media/games nook, oversized and overheight car accommodation area and gym/workshop loft, two large bedrooms and modern bathroom situated downstairs, older children will have their own space. Three spacious, built-in bedrooms, including an ideal office, are located upstairs and bear a light, airy elevation that takes in views through an aged poinciana canopy. Each has French doors that open onto a wide verandah, with plantation shutters assuring privacy.

    Imagine the newly designed plans that involve incorporating a walk-through robe and ensuite addition to the master bedroom, a large family bathroom, separate powder room, additional linen storage and stylish laundry in place of the existing layout.

    This beautiful residence is conveniently located only 5km from the CBD, is a 5 minute walk from My Mistress Café, IGA Ascot and the much-loved green spaces of Oriel Park, and is near to Clayfield’s array of gourmet food providores and restaurants. Close to major arterials, set within the catchment for Ascot State School and only a couple of minutes’ stroll from St. Agatha’s Primary School and St. Rita’s College, with St. Margaret’s Anglican only 800m away, this premier position is unrivalled for city commuters and families with school age children.
