Gracing the north-east corner of Hawthorne's exclusive Blackheath and Leura Avenues, this magnificent 1920's character home is one of the area's most admired.
Set on an expansive 1215m2 allotment, bordered by manicured gardens and sprawling Poinciana trees, the stately residence fuses authentic Queensland elegance with superb modern liveability.
From the grand gables of the faade to the interior's high ceilings, solid floorboards and ornate timberwork, the home retains all of its classic appeal. Yet a new layer of sophistication has been incorporated, with a huge granite kitchen, beautiful bathrooms as well as marble and 2Pac joinery.
Boasting a sense of space that must be experienced to be truly appreciated, a unique single level floorplan offers families the perfect balance between open communal living and the privacy of separate zones.
The main family and entertaining areas enjoy a beautiful flow through the centre of the home, with glass French doors allowing individual rooms to be segregated when required. Meanwhile, the kitchen and dining room unfolds into a magnificent atrium-style entertaining space, where the windows can be opened for a breezy alfresco ambiance or closed to enjoy the warmth of the gas fireplace.
The bedrooms have been thoughtfully configured into separate wings. Two bedrooms share their own bathroom at one end, the master with stunning marble ensuite and walk-in dressing room has been privately positioned, while a teenager's retreat enjoys easy access to the third bathroom.
Sky-lit and enhanced by rows of casement and sash windows, the home captures glorious natural light, with outlooks over the garden and across to Hamilton.
Outside, broad wrap-around lawns with a cubby house and sandpit are an absolute delight for children, while the alfresco entertaining terrace is the perfect shady spot to relax with guests.
Additional property highlights include reverse cycle air-conditioning, Crimsafe/insect screening, huge gourmet kitchen with family-sized island breakfast bar and European appliances; integrated three car garage with abundant storage/workshop space, solar panels and 20,000L underground water tanks.
Positioned within easy walking distance of City Cat or bus transport, the Oxford Street shopping, dining and entertainment precinct, as well as Hawthorne's restaurants and deluxe cinema, this exceptional address sits within catchment of the coveted Bulimba State School and moments from Sts Peter and Paul's and Lourdes Hill College, with swift access to other prestigious Brisbane schools.
