Rambling Ashgrovian Resting On 1146m2 Grounds
Surrounded by established gardens and enjoying a commanding position on the Ashgrove/Enoggera border lies this beautiful piece of history waiting to be brought back to its former glory. Offered for the first time in over 50 years, imagine the hidden beauty and unlock the potential of this home. Records state that the home was architecturally designed by Cullen & Egan Architects, Brisbane on behalf of the McDonnell family, the proprietors of Brisbane’s own department store, McDonnell & East Ltd. It was master built in 1938.
From the moment you enter through the silky oak door, the home’s character is evident through its traditional features and stately Ashgrovian layout with living areas and bedrooms flowing from one room to the next. Ornate cornices, leadlight doors, VJ walls & lofty ceilings are apparent throughout with solid hardwood floors hidden by the ever so stylish 1960’s carpet and lino.
The upper level consists of 4 bedrooms (2 built-in), traditional bathroom with terrazzo floor, separate lounge & dining areas, sun room and a spacious eat in kitchen with direct access to the side patio. The lower level offers an amazing space for storage and hobbies (concreted & retained), 2nd bathroom and 2 car garage.
This is an outstanding opportunity for those who are seeking a true blank canvas to build from and create an inner city haven with space for trailers, boats, a pool, tennis court or even a granny flat for Nanna and Pop!
