Nestled into the base of Brisbane’s Mt Coot-tha, a charmingly renovated home enjoys the best that life has to offer.
The two-storey, six-bedroom estate at 120 Ironbark Road, Chapel Hill, has been priced at $3 million, with plenty of amenities included in the price tag.
Vendor Douglas Rablin says the property’s location is fantastic.
“There are large front and back lawns, and a pool, but best of all it backs onto the Cubberla Creek Park, so it’s like an extended back yard through the gate,” Douglas says.
“There’s all these walking tracks literally steps away from your house, and schools a couple of minutes down the road. I love the location, it’s a very quiet pocket of Chapel Hill right at the base of Mt Coot-tha and it’s very peaceful.”
The house has been extensively renovated and refurbished by the current owner, creating a fresh new look inside and out. Each of the bathrooms (three shared and three en suites) has been redone in shades of grey, from the brushed tiles on the walls and floor to the blocky, gleaming counters.
The bedrooms are bright and airy, with two master suites.
“There’s a master in the original house and one in the extension so it would suit a family with in-laws or other relatives,” Douglas says.
“The en suite in one of the masters is fantastic, it’s open plan,” he says. “It’s separated from the bedroom by a floor-to-ceiling headboard but apart from that it’s open.”
In the centre of the house, towering ceilings and polished floors demonstrate the true breadth of the home’s improvements. A rounded, two-storey pillar occupies the centre of the space, providing an unobtrusive breakpoint between the rooms. One side of the room lets in light through the string of windows, with the perfect display wall opposite.
With multiple living spaces, there’s always somewhere to get away and relax. For formal entertaining or chilly winter evenings, try the eastern room, where a domed ceiling and elegant fireplace provides plenty of talking points. For a more relaxed occassion, the refurbished bar is the place to be!
Surrounded by tropical plants, the back patio – conveniently located under the upstairs balcony – leads back to a large pool with its own entertaining space. Situated at the rear of the property, there’s plenty of privacy to sunbathe, and thanks to its elevated position, the views are great without sharing anything with passers-by.
“It’s a beautiful place, but with my children leaving it’s time to downsize,” Douglas says. “It’s a huge house, it would definitely suit a large family.”
