The Crown

  • Location has long been the holy grail of property and in a suburb that is home to some of Brisbane’s most hotly contested real estate and where detached dwellings are in high demand yet increasingly short supply, there is no doubt this property represents a rare opportunity to establish oneself in a highly coveted suburb boasting unrivalled amenity.
  • Discover the latte lifestyle that has come to define New Farm with multiple cafes all within walking distance of this location, with this property also positioned at the heart of a vibrant neighbourhood that includes the designer fashion and retail mecca of James Street and a vibing restaurant and social hub centred around The Calile Hotel and that places Howard Smith Wharves within walking distance.
  • Home to the iconic New Farm Park and with Brisbane’s silken river and bustling walking paths and bikeways also threading through this historic neighbourhood, opportunities for regular exercise are found in a stunning natural setting that will become an extension of your backyard.
  • You’ll almost never have to take the car out, located literally around the corner from Brunswick Street and Merthyr Village’s famous Coles and iconic New Farm Deli precinct, with local newsagents, medical, hair & beauty services, gyms, artisanal bakeries, patisseries and takeaway and dine-in cuisine offerings a moments’ walk from your street.
  • The Brisbane Powerhouse Arts Precinct, New Farm and Palace Cinemas, and numerous local studios and galleries add to New Farm’s vibrant cultural experience, while the Jan Powers Farmers Markets on a Saturday and New Farm and Merthyr Bowls Clubs on a Sunday afternoon are institutions when it comes to spending weekends in this exclusive neighbourhood.
  • Moments from the CBD, in catchment for New Farm State School and just around the corner from Holy Spirit Primary, this property also enjoys close proximity to a number of prestigious, inner-city secondary colleges.

The Jewel

  • A charming, renovated 1920s Queenslander in a prestigious pocket of New Farm offering 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, dual kitchens and multiple living areas unfolding across two spacious levels.
  • Tucked discreetly behind a tall, secure fence, a front gate with PIN access opens to reveal a generous front garden – a private oasis nestled beneath the shade of the street’s lush, established trees.
  • The home’s upper level boasts 4 generously-proportioned bedrooms with 2 of these opening through original French doors onto a wide and welcoming front porch, while a master suite of huge proportions is located privately to the rear, also enjoying separate deck access. An updated main bathroom is conveniently located to service the home’s first 3 bedrooms, while a large master ensuite boasts ultra-mod twin glass vanities.
  • A centrally-located modern kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, integrated breakfast bar and servery window, all ideally located alongside a generous open-plan living and dining space. A bar nook is sits close by alongside a huge timber bifold door opening onto a rear deck designed to capture filtered light and privacy – the ideal inner-city retreat.
  • Upstairs/downstairs living is facilitated courtesy of a set of semi-enclosed rear stairs delivering access to a separate lower-level foyer and entry. Evolving from its previous iteration as a tiered home cinema, bar and billiards room, downstairs has been transformed into a huge open-plan lounge and dining area, located alongside a small yet well-appointed second kitchen.
  • An oversized boudoir, bathroom, laundry and additional storage complete the lower level before opening to a private entertaining terrace and lushly landscaped yet low-maintenance rear yard.
  • With parking at a premium in New Farm, a huge undercroft at the front of the property is also another highly desirable feature, providing ample accommodation for 3 cars, with a 4th space available off-street.
