Grand Family Colonial in Prestige Location
- 5 Beds

This expansive family home is nestled in one of New Farms most exclusive and sought after cul-de-sacs and is without a doubt, one of the Peninsula's most outstanding homes. "Curra" is that ever elusive "big family home on a big block" that the market has been crying out for. Its irreplaceable location and grand proportions, offers a lifestyle like no other. At 192 Heal Street, you will find a truly iconic family residence, with generous spaces for all the family members and is ideal for large functions or private family living. It is such a rare combination, to be able to enjoy a central location in a peaceful tree-lined setting.
To live in such an exceptional home is nothing short of a privilege, and it would be difficult to find a home more suited to the modern family. Originally built in the 1890's on a massive 926sqm allotment, this iconic Queensland Colonial ticks every box. It is immediately evident on arrival that the picturesque faade and quiet street emits a sense of warmth and charm like no other.
The impressive central hallway exhibits a level of quality reminiscent of a bygone era complete with Queensland red cedar four panelled doors and soaring 3.6m ceilings with ornate cornicing. Walking past the master suite the attention to detail is simply striking. Across the hall there is an inviting large formal lounge complete with working fireplace. As you make your way to the back of the home, you will find yourself in an expansive modern open plan kitchen, dining and living room overlooking the backyard and pool area, skirted by generous veranda's perfect for a large family gathering or quiet nights in. It is difficult to imagine how a home with so much original character and charm can be so tastefully renovated to suit a contemporary family.
The overwhelming sense of captivation when first seeing this amazing residence only intensifies as you make your way further through the rest of the home. Each of the five bedrooms are liberally sized and well separated for each family member's own peace and privacy. A superb master bedroom is perfectly proportioned with its own walk in robe and ensuite which can be easily expanded further to cater for even the biggest collection of garments.
Downstairs there is ample parking for three cars with storage and internal access. Adjoining, there is also a huge multi-function room with its own independent side entry perfect for either a home office or teenagers retreat. Further down toward the pool, there is a fully self-contained family room that lends itself perfectly as a guest wing for housing those interstate visitors or even a media room with separate bathroom/ensuite.
Despite all that this outstanding home offers, perhaps the biggest draw-card of this perfect family home is its huge backyard, beautifully landscaped with a unique large sandstone pool featuring hand-crafted haladon stonewalls and paving, incorporating a pergola, for those beautiful Queensland weekends at home.
A home of this calibre with such an amazing offering is so often admired, but rarely made available. However, for the local families hooked on the New Farm lifestyle looking to upgrade or for families seeking the inner city lifestyle, there is no better opportunity to find the perfect family base. This highly sought after lifestyle and location will impress even the most discerning buyers.
Located opposite the New Farm State School, you will be just minutes' walk to New Farm Park, James Street, the Teneriffe Precinct and everything else New Farm has to offer. The lifestyle implications of such a home are absolutely stunning.
