Restore to Former Glory"Langton" is the epitome of timeless Queensland architecture. It is situated on 1821m2 of prime, elevated, inner-city land. The steeply pitched roof and classic wrap-around verandah with decorative gables characterize the timeless grandeur of a bygone era.
Although in recent years the home has been divided into flats, many of the original, classic features have been preserved and just await loving restoration. These features include rich timber floors, terrazzo, plaster walls, original brick open fireplace, bay window seats and high ceilings. The ornate plaster ceilings are a work of art in their own right. So too are the floor to ceiling sash windows with beautiful stained glass.
The rooms are generously proportioned and include formal and informal living areas across a single level. There is also the original billiards room, former maids quarters and plenty of bedrooms. Banks of leadlight windows provide a view to the grounds including the original croquet court, which later became the tennis court.
The property currently enjoys city views, which could be further capitalized upon with clever renovation.
Perfectly positioned in a prestigious pocket of inner city Greenslopes, this home is further enhanced by its North East aspect and dual street access. It is in close proximity to excellent transport, schools, hospitals and amenities. Enjoy easy access to the eclectic blend of boutiques and restaurants of the area, or enjoy the more extensive dining, shopping and entertainment of the nearby CBD.
Now a deceased estate this home is being offered to the market for the first time in 50 years. This is a rare opportunity to own a truly outstanding piece of Queensland architecture and history. Beneficiaries of the estate have instructed the property will be sold and all offers made prior to auction will be considered.
