We proudly present “Killara” an exceptional example of early 20th Century Federation architecture.
Built circa 1918 on land from a grand 19th century estate, Killara was designed by Brisbane architect Arnold Edwin Brooks. Enjoying an elevated street presence in the prestigious suburb of Hamilton, the home is rich in character with leadlight windows, detailed timber joinery and timber floors.
A high pitched terracotta roof, soaring ceilings and spacious rooms on both levels add to the grandeur of this stunning home, lovingly maintained by the current family for the last twenty years. The imposing bay windows and French doors throughout invite in lots of natural light and beautiful breezes. Well positioned on the lush established lot, nearly every room has its own access to the spacious timber veranda and ground level patio.
Two generous levels of living include a master suite on the upper level, formal and informal living and dining areas and well equipped gourmet kitchen with walk in pantry. The rear deck also generous in size and connected to the kitchen and living rooms through the French doors, provides an ideal space for summer entertaining while overlooking the fully tiled large pool.
The lower level accommodates a more casual family lifestyle, also light and spacious, and connected to the level yard by multiple French doors. The office at the front has its own entrance which would be ideal for those looking to work from home and accept clients without the need to disturb the rest of the household.
Within the Ascot State School catchment, there are multiple prestigious schools on offer such as St Rita’s, St Margaret’s, St Agatha’s, Clayfield College, Brisbane Grammar to name a few.
A short stroll to the café precinct of Racecourse Road, and easy access to Brisbane City and Kingsford Smith Airport, this property is not to be missed! Call to arrange a private viewing!
