Under ContractProperty ID 1551317Chapel Hill classics of this standard don't come along very often. This home is an original, architect designed home built for the current owner and her family, back when Chapel Hill was just opening up. Circumstances are such that the owner must move on and wants it sold. No ifs, buts or maybes, this one's going to go!
Built on 1,232m2 of sloping bushland in the foothills of Mt Coot-tha the home is cleverly designed with soaring windows to enjoy majestic views, peaceful surrounds, wonderful airflow in summer and cosy warmth in winter.
Constructed over four levels with characteristic dark brick and natural timber, the accommodation is set out to achieve maximum usage of the lands natural features.
From the moment you arrive at the front of the house you can see this is something special. Beautifully constructed steps lead up to the entry door which is deliberately narrow and cloistered, opening up to the cathedral like lounge space with stunning views across the treed suburb and south west as far as the mountains of the Scenic Rim. The home is well planned with a clear layout. The formal dining room, kitchen and laundry are set to the back of the house and open out to a back shady patio running the length of the house. This is punctuated by a wonderful flat grassy pad overlooking the pool.
Central to the house is a stairway that leads down to the cosy family room and bathroom and leads out to a further entertainment patio, BBQ and sparkling pool. A further storage area and access to garage is positioned on the lowest level of the house.
On the upper floor three (3) lovely bedrooms lie to the right and the bathroom and toilet to the left. The master bedroom features a built in robe and a private balcony. The room is perfectly proportioned and cleverly designed to give the occupant superb tree top views across the suburb. The position and design of the house allows for ultimate airflow and there is always a space that suits the weather of the day. The master bedroom also has a remote fan to assist with further air circulation.
The hallway then directs you out toward a back veranda past two more ample bedrooms, a linen press and the original bathroom. Bejewelled with small navy tiles classic of late seventies style and with a white vanity the bathroom is elegant even though in need of renovation. This bathroom has its own door opening to the back balcony and views across the neighbourhood.
With a myriad of stylish and bespoke upgrades this is vintage Brisbane style at its magnificent best. While there is still a little work to do, every room exhibits simplicity and majesty.
This is a property not to be missed and represents a fantastic opportunity to buy into a piece of Brisbane's architectural and design history. You will love living here, so make your move today and inspect at the open home times or by contacting Claire Austin.
