Could this be Brisbane’s finest home?
This five-bedroom, three-storey masterpiece on the market with Ray White New Farm Principal Matt Lancashire, has been meticulously restored and sits on a 1240m2 double block in Auchenflower with sweeping views of Brisbane City.
With price expectations above $4 million it comes complete with championship tennis court, swimming pool, three bathrooms, wine cellar, sweeping northeast views and a self-contained downstairs living area.
Seventeen-year resident and vendor of the property, Lisa Bruce said it was originally a church hall and they employed one of Brisbane’s top architects to create the dream family home, sparing no expense in the build.
“It’s a very flexible house and has worked well for us while our three boys have grown up,” Ms Bruce said, adding that the downstairs teen or grandparents’ retreat has an exclusive kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom.
“In fact there are plenty of spaces in this house where you can escape and do your own thing which works very well for entertaining.”
“There is plenty of room for parties of at least 100 people and those lovely big verandahs with the breathtaking city views are always a popular spot.”
“In fact the big city views are visible from all levels, even from the tennis court,” she said, adding that the views will never be built out due to airspace restrictions in the area.
Ms Bruce said that other appealing assets of the property included the main living area sitting at street level with 30-metre street frontage and the home’s suitability for young children.
“Auchenflower is a wonderfully green and residential suburb yet so close to the CBD and has an excellent range of shopping.
There are plenty of parks for the children and Milton state school is at the bottom of our street. It really is a beautiful place to live,” she said.
“It’s one of Brisbane’s grandest old suburbs but the demographic has changed since we moved here in 1999. Lot’s of families have moved into the area and it is now a young professional area.”
“And that’s probably what will happen with our home. We are only leaving because we are downsizing.”
“It’s been a great house and we still love it but it’s time to move to something a bit smaller.”
Selling Agent, Matt Lancashire from Ray White New Farm said the property is expected to sell for over $4 million and is available to inspect by appointment.
