This historic Brisbane residence, former vice-regal property, is now on the market.
Situated in Bardon, this property once sat on the grounds of Old Parliament House at Gardens Point and the current Government house in Paddington.
Now settled on a big 1,707sqm block, this residence is well and truly finished with its stately duties, but it doesn’t mean it’s done serving the people.
A real homestead in the city, this five-bedroom residence was immaculately maintained to showcase its heritage whilst still keeping up with the demand of contemporary living.
You can see its history by looking at the original windows, door joinery, neo roman roofing profile, high ceilings, HJ walls, ornate fireplaces, classic arches and intricate fretwork.
But don’t worry, the kitchen isn’t lost in the past.
The kitchen features all the modern appliance one could desire.
In a true Queenslander style, four of the bedrooms open via French doors on to the sprawling veranda.
The back deck with a built-in barbeque, integrated bar fridge and sash window to the kitchen makes feeding family and guests a breeze.
The master suite offers the perfect sanctuary, with a spacious dressing room and a sleek white ensuite with mosaic-style tiling.
The open plan living makes for easy entertaining on any occasion, and the formal sitting room with a coal fireplace is the perfect setting to enjoy a meal with your boss whilst ask for that next big promotion.
Outdoors, immerse yourself in a blissful botanic oasis. The lush side lawn is ideal for impromptu games of cricket, rugby or even croquet, or, assemble the marquees, book the live band and prepare for an epic celebration in a stunning setting.
Situated on a family-friendly street which thrives on a strong sense of community, you’re more likely to cross paths with cyclists, walkers and joggers than cars in this peaceful haven.
If this sounds good to you, don’t wait!
