Brydon Manor - Workers CottageProperty ID: 22414
Charming old Character Listed three-bedroom Queenslander nestled on a private, leafy block of 435 square metres. The home overlooks the old Highgate Hill Gully, with views across neighbouring rooftops. The long axis of the property runs North-South.
Situated within the Brisbane State High catchment area, it is conveniently located near The Brisbane Convention Centre, UQ, QUT, The Mater Hospital, Lady Cilento, the PA, and the CBD, yet remarkably quiet with no through traffic using the cul-de-sac. A ten minute walk puts you in the heart of West End with all it has to offer. Regular public transport and cycling infrastructure make car free living possible.
Light and airy (with a fully insulated ceiling), the Eastern aspect catches morning sun. The yard is fully fenced, making it ideal for children and pets. The home has three bedrooms, one complete bathroom and a second separate toilet, a front sun room, main dining room and another living space by the kitchen. Broad pine boards for flooring and traditional VJ interior walls give warmth and character so often absent from modern builds. Local timbers have stood the test of time. Sandstone walls form a solid foundation for the green terraces in both the front yard and the back. The path through the front yard is made from stone quarried from Kangaroo Point. A lockable gate separates the driveway (which has room for one car) from the concreted area underneath the house (where a second car can be garaged). The house could be raised in the future and more rooms built in underneath. A raised deck from the back sun room and kitchen would also unlock more of the potential of this great home. The street enjoys a special relaxation on maximum building height.
The electrical system has been fully checked and the power box has been upgraded and is ready for installation of air conditioning should you want it. The plumbing has been upgraded to modern, hassle free poly pipes.
Open House Inspections will be available Saturdays 10am.
