First time offered in 59 years, this sprawling single level Queenslander presents a rare opportunity to purchase 1,416sqm with 26 m frontage in the heart of Clayfield.
This well maintained family home offers the perfect opportunity for lovers of classic Queenslander lines and proportions with imagination and vision to take it to the next level with further renovations; capitalising on a generous allotment and future capital gains prospects. Alternatively it offers the new owners the opportunity to subdivide into 2 generous lots or construct two or three townhouses – making it an ideal site for developers (STCA). Underpinned by a sought-after family lifestyle location in the Eagle Junction State School Catchment, walking distance to elite private schools, a host of transport routes, the emerging Albion precinct and all within 10 km of the Brisbane CBD.
The existing home showcases numerous traditional features including a large east facing enclosed front deck, traditional fret work, 11 ft ceilings, tongue and groove walls and ceilings in the original section and working fireplace. A traditional interior presents in good condition with the accommodation currently configured to feature formal lounge and dining, five bedrooms including the master with an ensuite, family bathroom, a study/home office and a spacious open-plan living and dining area; the eat-in kitchen, large internal laundry and store room are all within easy access to the the informal entertaining areas of the home. The large rear garden with mature trees is ideal for entertaining and children’s play. Other features include a third bathroom, garden shed/workshop and 2 car off-street parking.
With a sympathetic renovation, it would transform into the perfect private family haven. The home can be very comfortably occupied or leased whilst a decision is made on its future and plans drawn up and approved by Council.
