"The Palms" A Majestic 1870s Historic Queenslander
Originally constructed around 1870 and bursting with wonderful stories, this enduring Queenslander will satisfy only the most astute of buyers who will appreciate its rich history and continue its longstanding legacy. “The Palms”, as it is known, is under consideration by Redland City Council as a heritage listing.
Hidden back from Raife Close on a grand 1,199m2 allotment, you will feel as if you have driven to a secluded countryside retreat. This address perfectly balances the high expectations of modern living with a classic Queenslander atmosphere. Past the impressive wraparound front deck, the home showcases polished timber floors, a statement fireplace in the main living area, VJ walls and soaring high ceilings.
The impressive kitchen is contemporary with a vintage influence. It has a 900mm multi-cavity oven with a 6-burner cooktop, marble benchtops and a concrete island for meal preparation, a copper rangehood and ample storage.
The master suite is reminiscent of a country weekend escape that can be enjoyed every day of the week. It has an air-conditioned oversized bedroom, window seat and an ensuite with a barn door, shower and views to the lush greenery through casement windows.
This home offers something you have likely never seen before nor will see again-stairway access to a private loft for work, study or extra living! Bedroom 3 also has its own nook above the built-in robes, while bedroom 2 has air-conditioning, deck access and a built-in robe. There is also a 4th bedroom, separate study and the home is serviced by a large family bathroom with a roll-top bath, laundry and a separate toilet.
Outside has a huge backyard with landscaped gardens and veggie patch, a glittering in-ground pool, a separate mancave and an old-fashioned treehouse that will have your little ones running to explore! There is also an open double garage/carport and electric gates for extra security.
Just a few additional highlights include a 6.5kW solar system, Crimsafe screens to all windows and doors, bottled gas and so many eccentric features to find around every corner!
This property is only moments from local shopping centres, cafes, restaurants and local boutiques. It is surrounded by quality schools including award-winning Ormiston College, Redlands College, St Mary MacKillop primary school, and various childcare centres. It is nearby Birkdale train station and is just 25km from Brisbane City.
