48 Charlton Street, Ascot
This fireplace is no longer available, but it’s still beautiful! You’ll find it inside the six-bedroom grand colonial mansion in Brisbane’s Ascot – which just sold for $3.9 million.
The two-story Queenslander takes pride of place on a quarter acre block of land at 48 Charlton Street, where it had been owned by the same family for nearly 30 years.
Built in the 1910s, the historic elements of this home shine through and blend naturally with modern conveniences. High ceilings, a wood-panelled fireplace, and vertical joint walls are visible reminders of the building’s past, while air conditioning, premium appliances, and a recent renovation keep it thoroughly modern.
