Exceptional Character, Exclusive Hamilton Hill, Panoramic River/City Views
Rarely do exceptional quality, character rich homes, with absolute panoramic river/city views and beyond come to the market. This is that rare opportunity.
Since its construction in the late 1930’s this home has been lovingly appreciated for its exceptional quality construction and character ambience. Set in a quiet, elevated position, this is a home you enter to safely rest from life’s busy demands. With its wonderful high ceilings, lead lights and silky oak detailing, thoughtful modern additions and character rich, racked ceilings in the top floor guest quarters (also perfect for an artist studio or private retreat), this is total charm and delight.
Unlike many older homes the layout embraces the intimacy of smaller spaces with expansive living rooms, to completely capture the wide panoramic view. The main living area off the kitchen and adjoining terrace can easily cater to a crowd, while the intimate feeling of the space make smaller gatherings just as special. When evening falls, the quiet dark of the night and twinkling city lights backdrop is magical. It’s the quality and substance of this space that so resonates.
On entry, the silky oak detailing combined with on trend terracotta tiling deliver warm inviting tones. While the main dining and kitchen area’s European Oak flooring is lovingly sourced from an old French Church in Brittany, the generous adjoining open plan lounge has a stylish inlaid timber floor and fireplace. There is so much to appreciate.
The upstairs bedroom wing is generous, light filled and perfectly vantaged to capture the twinkling city lights and river life. Well cushioned quality carpets underfoot add to the feel of quality and rest.
Access to the top floor, with character racked ceilings is via spiral stairs, here you’re transported to the ultimate rooftop hideaway with long range expansive views extending well beyond the river, city and embracing mountain tops as far as N.S.W. Here those childhood memories scaling the roof to see above the surrounding homes and treetops are fondly evoked. The elevation and vista is beyond superb. Whether this be your reflection hideaway zone, guest quarters, private study or artist studio, it’s very special and magical.
Hamilton enjoys easy access to the best schools, lifestyle precincts and transport links across Brisbane, north and south coasts, Brisbane CBD and airport.
A truly rare market offer!
