Live, entertain and run your business from his stunning home & prime locationNestled in the thick of the action on James Street but close enough to the tranquil amenities of New Farm Park and Brisbane River Walk, this recently renovated worker's cottage has been lovingly revitalized to offer dual/separate living versatility as well as a stylish office and home business space.
Designed by the renowned architect, Shane Marsh, the home is both spectacular in design and finish, making it a place you'd be proud to call home as well as to entertain guests, clients or customers through a separate Air b'&b or a home business.
As you enter the front door, you find yourself in a surprisingly quiet and private space that would be perfect for an au pair, a break out zone for your parents or visitors and of course running your business. There are separate and secure entry points for access and parking, which makes living or running a business a breeze.
The main room or second living/media room is fitted with funky interchangeable colour LED lighting obtainable at the flick of a switch. Plumbing is ready to go for your home bar or home office kitchenette and a further powder room is adjacent. Stepping through the naturally light filled studio/office sees you capture the unique back garden /carport and the spacious fourth (4th) master bedroom, provides ample cupboard space and entry to the front luscious courtyard.
Upstairs is all about living, dining and entertaining amidst the spectacular city views and sunsets. The open plan kitchen is breath-taking and contains Italian Eco Marmi Maximum Innovative bench tops, a butler's pantry, NEFF induction cook top, steam combination oven and a conventional oven along with generous storage space, guaranteeing both functionality and grandeur. Sliding doors open this space further with a perfectly sized 'Juliette' balcony (that can be extended in the future).
Moving into the original and "character" side of the home, the formal dining room has high ceiling and captures more city views through a perfectly positioned glass observational window. The main lounge is intimate and warm. Three bedrooms all with built-in-robes are roomy, light and bright, intercept this central family space. The main bathroom is spacious and beautiful designed, fitted with a rare 'Renaissance' cast iron double hip, claw foot bath and quality fittings.
The main garage / carport affords enough space for two cars with potential for four and additional vehicles can be parked off the street. This ample car accommodation is rare to say the least in New Farm and invaluable to both your family and or business.
The gardens have been tendered with love and require little maintenance, helping to promote a tone of ease and class. Blue stone pavers are featured, as are textured walls with Bonsai's, old forgotten but now rejuvenated stumps break the facade and work perfectly with all the other materials throughout the home - inside and out.
Absolutely secure, positioned in an elevated corner of New Farm. This home is both stunning and versatile and truly a one off. It's an honour and pleasure to be part of the history and evolution of this home.
Inspections by appointment only.
