"Hudson" once graced the rolling hills of prized fertile farmland in what is today considered one of Brisbane's most blue chip inner city suburbs.
Built in the late 1880's by former Albion Hotel publican and grazier Edward Hudson, this iconic residence has been meticulously restored to glory in consultation with highly respected period architect Derek Trebilcock.
This majestic and classic colonial residence is today positioned on a 1032m2 holding, blessed with a highly sought after position in the heart of one of Brisbane's most desirable suburbs.
Inspired by the timeless elegance of a bygone era this landmark residence is framed by tranquil, established poinciana and jacaranda trees and formal hedges.
Swept straight from the pages of a classic Australian novel, the quintessential wide verandahs detailed with elegant wrought iron lace work are handsomely teamed with full length sash windows and traditional balustrades to deliver a home that is enchanting from the very first view.
The impressive front door opens to a grand central hallway that leads past a gracious library/bedroom and the original large formal dining room and on to a large open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, seamlessly separating the heritage formal rooms from the informal living zones.
Here the superb entertainer's kitchen, complete with air-conditioned scullery, is equipped with a gas cooktop, Neff oven and steam oven and Macubrus quartz benchtops.
This generously proportioned and light filled main hub of the house features a large wall of windows and French doors, with a green and private view out onto the rear verandah and garden retreat.
The four upstairs bedrooms are all sizeable and enhanced by the magnificent original high ceilings of the home. The master bedroom has a large ensuite and walk in wardrobe in the formal part of the house.
The other three bedrooms are serviced by a further bathroom with beautiful freestanding bath. The internal layout of this much loved home works well for any stage of family life with the option to keep youngsters close at hand. For teenagers there is ample separation with a combination of formal and informal living areas, sunroom and a separate study.
The lower level is fully self- contained and approved as a living area ideal for older children or guests. There is also a storage area and provision for a lockable cellar.
Other features of this residence include full security, ducted air-conditioning, two magnificent original fireplaces, an upstairs drying deck and a double carport.
Even the current fence is significant, handlaid with bricks recycled from the stables of the original Parliament House.
"Hudson" is situated within an easy walk to transport, shops and cafes. There is an excellent choice of superb schools and kindergartens including Eagle Junction State School within walking distance and St Margaret's, Clayfield College, Nudgee, St Rita's and St Agatha's nearby.
It is ideally located halfway between both the Brisbane Airport and CBD.
Steeped in history this elegant residence awaits the discerning buyer to continue its story.
