The Original Farm HouseProperty ID 1669478This is an absolute once off. This is not just a property purchase, this is an iconic piece of Queensland real estate. Rarely will you ever see a family home that warms the heart like 'The Farm House' does. Loved and adored for over a century, the current custodian of one of Brisbane's most historic and treasured homes has regretfully decided to move on, and a genuine opportunity has arisen to buy a slice of Queensland history.
As the plaque states "this farm-house which stood on 23 acres of land was built by Thomas Mullen in 1871 and remained in his family until 1975 when it was purchased by the present owners".
From every inch to every corner, this home has been meticulously maintained, and has a true ambiance like no other. Situated on a massive 802 square meters, there is plenty of room for the entire family, both inside and out. With the perfect equation of upstairs and down, formal, informal, indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, this is a space that leaves no stone unturned when catering for the entire family.
The entire block is set above recent flood levels, and the farm house itself has three levels. As you walk through the front door, you have four bedrooms, living area and gorgeous bookcase. You have a fascinating attic room upstairs, which can easily be a shared bedroom / media room / play area for the children.
The ground level showcases impressive scope, with a huge well-appointed kitchen which looks out to informal dining and a 180 degree outlook to the gardens and in ground pool outside. If you love gardens, look no further. The entire space captures the essence of yesteryear, while the clever addition to the living area downstairs creates a modern tweak. Period details add a timeless character.
You may want to 'add your personal touch' to it, or you may love it as is. Whatever your motivation is, just immerse yourself in the nostalgia of our farm like heritage - you even have your very own original water well that's been there since the 19th century. You've never seen anything like it.
Soak in the benefits of being on a sought after corner block which captures unparalleled breezes from north east which meander throughout the space. Perhaps the most notable feature is the outdoor living, beautiful gardens and outdoor entertaining year-round. Here you can host your summer barbeques or lazy Sunday brunch at your leisure amongst friends and family.
Let it be known, you are an easy walk to Graceville State School and Christ the King Catholic School. Indooroopilly State High School, St Peter's Lutheran College, Ambrose Treacy College and Indooroopilly Shopping Centre are but a stone's throw away. The Chelmer railway station is a two minute walk, and there are plenty of bus routes nearby. You are quite literally surrounded by cafes, parks and sporting venues for children and adults alike.
