Having only changed hands twice in over half a century, this sale is a coveted opportunity to secure a significant piece of Ascot history. Sitting proudly on an enviable allotment of 1,001sqm of prime flat land, discerning buyers will be aware that properties of this calibre, in one of Ascots most highly sought after streets, are seldom found.
This well-preserved home retains the charm of a bygone era, featuring all the hallmarks of its original beauty with sweeping wrap-around veranda, subtle fretwork, wrought iron balustrades and sash windows. The original hoop pine floors are polished to impeccable condition, original VJ walls appear as new and the soaring 3.4 meter ceilings have been dramatically emphasised with pressed metal finishes and original ornate lighting.
Desley Campbell Stewart, a name synonymous with heritage architecture, has masterfully created a generous extension to this exquisite home. You would be forgiven for thinking that the extension completed in 2003, was part of the original house with its soaring 5.3-meter-high barn style ceilings, a clever mix of crow's ash and hoop pine flooring and VJ walls. Every room has been polished with meticulous precision, with period details and a true originality which lays the foundation for whatever option the heart desires. The entire space captures the absolute essence of Queenslanders.
The elegant style with which this traditional gabled Queenslander has been enhanced provides a superb family residence that is perfect for the Queensland family lifestyle.
A combination of modern appeal and period sophistication is in perfect harmony with the traditional floor plan and private outdoor spaces. The home has been lovingly restored, sympathetically updated and immaculately maintained to evoke a sense of enduring elegance. Homes of this calibre come to market only once every couple of decades, and after one inspection you will see why. The owners have bought elsewhere and this property will be sold at a price the market determines.
