What an exciting opportunity this is. 1067sqm of prime, northerly, ridgetop real estate already established as two lots in one of Taringa’s premier streets. In a private, leafy setting, ‘Surrey Lodge’ is a one-of-a-kind residence. A brick, Post-War home with two separate ‘wings’ over two levels and multiple indoor and outdoor living spaces, it offers a wonderful lifestyle in a superb location.
Here’s what’s on offer:
1063sqm with a 26.5m combined frontage. The 2 lots are roughly 557sqm and 510sqm each. Subject to council approval, there’s potentially the capacity to remove the home and build two brand new residences. 3 doors down, number 259 – built in 2009 after a similar subdivision – sold recently for $1.52m.
A uniquely styled, Post-War brick house, it features high ceilings, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study nook and a galley-style designer kitchen with soft-close cabinetry and integrated European appliances. Separated into two distinct ‘wings’ joined by the entry, it’s the perfect separation for teenagers and parents to have their own retreats. A back deck that spans the entire width of the home provides two distinct spaces for relaxation or hosting guests.
It has some lovely features, including a stone-wall fence, imported Argentinian front doors with opening glass panels, a large Balinese hut (made from 100 year-old wood recycled from a central Queensland shearing shed) and low-maintenance, manicured grounds. The home is light and airy and laid out to take advantage of the cooling ridgetop breezes and northerly aspect.
Other features include:
• Ducted air-conditioning in the Eastern wing
• Split-system air-conditioing in the Western wing
• Ceiling fans throughout
• Soft-touch light switches
• Double carport
• Working, original brick fireplace (concealed by mirror in dining room)
