Dreamy traditional timepiece on 810m2
From humble beginnings as one of the original Farmhouses of Morningside, this remarkable c1911 character residence is an unforgettable showpiece of the irresistible charm and craftsmanship of the iconic Queenslander vernacular. Proudly offered to the market for the first time in 41 years, this cherished home now offers an artful balance of formal appeal and relaxed modern family living and entertaining with tranquility and convenience in equal measure from a sprawling 810m2 inner-city setting.
Set back from the street, peering over glimmering Gateway views from behind a private leafy frame of mature trees, this home flaunts its fashionable heritage with a picturesque traditional façade and elegant interiors steeped in the grandeur of yesteryear. Generous everyday living greets you with the familiar hallmarks of VJs, pine timber floors, casement windows and mesmerizing chandeliers that dangle from soaring 3.7m ceilings. A central hallway connects multiple living and private spaces of the home, guiding a flow through the formal living, sun room, private retreat, sitting room, and dining to an impressive kitchen that will delight the family chef with stone bench tops, a walk-in pantry and a huge Savoir-faire gas cooktop. Seamlessly transitioning to the outdoors, the interiors lead to an expansive entertaining deck which provides the perfect vantage point over the shimmering pool and lush surrounds of tropical gardens.
Offering plenty of versatility for the changing needs of a growing family, upstairs provides three generous bedrooms, whilst downstairs features a large multi-purpose room with an ensuite and built-in storage, lending excellent potential for teenagers, multi-generational families, or a private office space with comfortable separation from the main residence.
Within arm’s reach of Morningside’s outstanding amenity, this spectacular address is only a short walk to Monocle Coffee and popular dining options along Wynnum road including the renowned Flour & Chocolate Patisserie, as well as the trendy Hawthorne garage, Morningside Central shopping Centre, a swift CBD commute via Morningside train station, footsteps to bus stop and a swift drive to quality education including Sts Peter and Paul’s and Lourdes Hill College, as well as a short drive to the neighboring dining and retail precincts within Hawthorne and Bulimba. Tightly held by only four families in its time, this home offers something truly special to the Morningside market that will be admired for generations to come.
