Nestled in quiet Mountford Road amongst some of New Farm's most iconic homes, this historic residence has undergone a transformation which rejoices the grandeur of yesteryear harmoniously integrating a modern refurbishment and extension which delicately links to the original home to create a landmark property celebrating the very finest architecture across two centuries. The owners have decided it is time to move on after many years of wonderful family memories and have given clear instructions to sell on or before the Auction day.

The original single level home was designed by Frank Bell, one of the famous Bell Brothers and a household name in the mid 50's in Brisbane. In recent years one of Brisbane's leading architects from the modern era Shaun Lockyer has overseen the conversion and transformation, grafting on a contemporary extension while making the older areas of the home relate to it and function well with minimal intervention. The formal dining and kitchen enjoy the graceful ambiance created by high ceilings and a blend of exposed timbers that run seamlessly from inside to out. Beautiful, polished, hardwood floors and a singular colour scheme throughout link these original spaces to the modern open plan living.

Buyers looking to secure a finely crafted residence in this highly sought after riverside precinct will enjoy a commanding 549 sqm parcel of prime inner city real estate. Its leafy street presence is certain to appeal to buyers who value their privacy while being within a minutes' walk to the the City Cat, River Walk and some of Brisbane's trendiest cafes, restaurants and bars that are on offer.

The vast kitchen is finished in the finest modern materials and appointed with the best of European appliances. It is a house designed for a family to gather, grand kids to play and friends to visit.
The home has 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a home office/ sunroom that is constantly bathed in morning light which flow's off the private master retreat. The third bedroom is located at the rear of the modern extension that is perfect for the ideal guest accommodation or teenage retreat with its own bathroom. The double lock up garage is a generous size with designated workshop and separate secure storage.

Ducted air conditioning, ceiling fans, intercom, security alarm system and quality finishes complete this magnificent package. An inspection of this exquisite residence will confirm your decision to reward yourself with the best lifestyle Brisbane has to offer.
