43 Duke Street,
The Duchess of Duke StreetThe “Duchess” of Duke Street, located on arguably Bulimba’s best character street, sits on a rare 1012m2 block in an elevated, North-facing position amongst heritage homes in this exclusive suburb.
This welcoming, five-bedroom Queenslander has been renovated just four years ago to an impeccable standard, featuring European appliances, stone bench tops, butlers pantry, polished timber floors and large verandas on both the front and rear of the property, as well as an expansive rear garden with swimming pool.
Entry through the central hallway leads to a generous lounge and dining area, as well as entertainer’s kitchen and spacious deck, perfect for family gatherings, intimate dinner parties or lazing on the weekend. The kitchen features marble-style stone benchtops, European appliances including VZUG steam oven and induction stove, integrated Leibherr fridges, Zip tap and undercounter Vintec drinks fridges.
On the upper level, there is also the master bedroom with ensuite (including a bath and walk-in shower) and custom-fitted dressing room, and second bedroom including built-in wardrobe and custom desk. Both rooms feature cushioned window seats and plantation shutters, reflective of the home’s Queenslander character. A study and additional bathroom are also on this level.
The lower level offers a further 3 bedrooms, bathroom and airy rumpus room opening to the expansive rear garden, featuring a swimming pool, entertainment areas and large flat lawn areas, perfect for kicking a soccer ball or backyard games of tiggy.
There is also a generous laundry with direct access to a private clothes drying area and an internal storage room. A double carport and an additional outside storage room compliment the home.
The home boasts excellent security including an alarm, crimsafe screens and Guardian shutters throughout.
The fully-fenced garden features hand-worked Helidon sandstone garden beds around the pool area, as well as hand-laid limestone cobbles in the front garden. The north-east aspect ensures warm winter sunshine floods the kitchen and living areas each morning, yet protection from the western sun in summer. The home is surrounded by mature trees, providing privacy from neighbours – it’s hard to believe that bustling Oxford Street with restaurants, café’s, cinemas, and the city cat ferry are only a short stroll away.
