WOW KENMORE CLASSIC – POTENTIAL SHINES – HUGE 1083m2 BLOCK
This Architect-designed family home, circa 1980’s, in mostly original condition on a huge north facing 1083m2 block overlooking parkland is absolutely ripe for a tasteful renovation to modernise this classic executive-style residence, without fear of overcapitalising.
Over two levels, this expansive home, approximately 316 square metres (excluding garage and alfresco areas), can accommodate super-sized living with versatile options. Complete with three-four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two powder rooms, kitchen with adjacent meals area, formal and casual living areas, office, wine cellar, multi-purpose room, two laundries, north facing terrace at front, rear patio, and three-car garage plus storage.
Solidly built to the highest of standards with double cavity brick, steel beams and red cedar wood throughout, this was a prestige home in its day, and still retains a gracious ambience. Lovers of retro style décor will delight in the interiors; and with good bones, it will be a joy to restore and modernise.
Existing features include: raked timber lined ceilings in upstairs living areas, balcony access from two bedrooms, fireplace in formal lounge, skylights and glass panels to invite in light, brand new dishwasher in kitchen, ceiling fans, Daikin air-conditioning, security alarm, safe, 2 x 3,000 litre water tanks, and well-established gardens with 31.51 metre street frontage.
As large as the house is, the ¼ acre block also allows room to further expand the alfresco entertaining area and put in an inground pool. The grounds are child/pet friendly and low maintenance…a blank canvas for you to leave as is for effortless living, or makeover to suit your vision and really create an impression!
Located in a dress circle street with neighbourhood traffic only and within close proximity to quality Kenmore state school and High schools, public and independent schools, local dining, shops, and sporting grounds, plus, with quick easy access to the Western Freeway and Kenmore Plaza, and bus services connecting to Brisbane Boys College and Ipswich Grammar – this is a sought-after family-friendly location. Brisbane CBD is 10 kilometres, an easy commute on public transport or a 22-minute drive.
First time offered to market by original owners. Builders/tradies, renovators, or retro-enthusiats will immediately see the value and potential!
