Rarely does a residence of this calibre, in such a premier location, become available to the market. A flawless family home; an architectural showpiece of what can be achieved when a master builder invests serious time and care into a personal project.
An original two bedroom Queenslander cottage has undergone a complete transformation guided by the discerning eye of industry experts. Raised, shifted, renovated and expanded; a gorgeous five bedroom contemporary version now exists in its place.
History has been honoured and traditional elements, including a large part of the front faade, have been retained. Every inch of this 810sqm north-south property has been perfected, from the repositioning of a lush frangipani tree to the introduction of a gas-heated spa.
A cabana with a powder room and outdoor shower is separated from the covered al fresco barbecue kitchenette by a long solar-heated swimming pool.
The main kitchen is a delightful space, often bathed in sunlight which streams in through rows of louvres and recessed sliding glass doors.
Among its finest inclusions are Caesarstone benchtops, soft-close drawers, a Calacatta splashback, Zip tapware, an integrated breakfast bar, Liebherr refrigeration, and Miele induction cooktop and ovens.
The butler's pantry features a plumbed double-door refrigerator, dishwasher and a generous amount of storage.
Ceilings measuring 3.3 metres, custom built-in furniture, bespoke David Trubridge pendant lighting, electric blinds, timber floorboards and wide hallways are designed to make living at 52 Emma Street an easy and beautiful existence.
There's a surround sound system in the media room, two large storage rooms off the double garage, a wine cellar, and a large separate laundry with access to a drying courtyard.
An enormous dressing robe divides the master bedroom from a deluxe double-vanity ensuite, with a family bathroom servicing the remaining three bedrooms on the second floor.
What we have here is a sympathetic rejuvenation of a classic Wooloowin home where older character has been enhanced by modern design.
Wooloowin's many attractions include the popular Eagle Junction State School catchment, heritage-listed Kalinga Park and a lovely established community in close proximity to Brisbane's central business district.
