Quintessential Queenslander with Hidden Gem

For the first time in over 20 years, an incredible opportunity has presented for a fortunate buyer to secure this 506 m2 block of precious real estate in the heart of New Farm.

Situated on the highly coveted Kent Street, "Glencoe House" is a beautiful three bedroom archetypal Queenslander. At the front of the house, you are greeted with a striking red stairwell, which leads to a spacious front verandah overlooking the peaceful street. The top level of living showcases its exemplary characteristics with ornate architraves, polished timber floorboards and high ceilings. All three bedrooms are generous in size with the main bedroom featuring a walk in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. The large open-planned kitchen has ample storage, which opens into separate dining and lounge rooms.

Downstairs features a fully secure and weatherproof multipurpose level of living, which offers the perfect retreat of a family entertainment space or home office with considerable amounts of storage. This expansive bonus area is also gifted with a second kitchenette, full bathroom and separate laundry in addition to the upper level. Multiple outdoor entertainment options are accessible at the back of the house, with two courtyards and a rear covered timber deck that flows from the upper level.

Hidden behind this quintessential Queenslander is a stylish detached granny flat with its own street access via Dawson Lane. Perfect for families with teenagers or grandparents seeking their own private living, or for the astute investor wishing to reap the financial benefits that a separate dwelling offers.

This freestanding home is spread over two levels of living and features a beautiful light filled entrance with soaring high ceilings and an architecturally designed timber stairwell, demonstrating a prelude to the open-planned living of the top level. Bi-fold ceiling to floor doors create a seamless transition from the modern kitchen and lounge room to a fully enclosed outdoor dining area with wonderful City views. The bedroom is spacious and has direct access to the private patio and courtyard.
