It is my pleasure to introduce you to this stunning prize winning home featured in the Summer Edition of Queensland Homes magazine 2017. Having been devotedly restored and renovated by its current master builder owner, this gorgeous home is in a class of its own.
‘Pen Y Llechwedd’ was built in 1914 when former Mayor Fredrick Golbey engaged George Brockwell-Gill, a renowned architect, to design the home. Sitting on a generous 1214sqm block with city views and tranquil leafy surrounds, this spectacular family home even boasts a private well established tropical garden space at the rear – complete with its own stream and a fire pit area with decking and built-in seating.
The home itself offers to you all the charisma and charm of an era bygone with wide ornate veranda’s on 3 sides, decorative timber, fretwork, perfect pressed metal ceilings, silky oak entry with exquisite leadlight, polished timber flooring, timber French doors, built-in bay window seating, fireplace – an endless list of gorgeous original features.
Internal stairs offer double storey living, meaning this home will accommodate a large family perfectly. There are 3 separate living areas, including a formal lounge space, separate dining and lounge room, plus a family room downstairs making the perfect teenagers retreat or perhaps space for Mum and Dad with potential for dual living. The library is a true treat indeed, completely decked out with built-in book shelves, drawer file storage, plus a unique sliding ladder for those hard to reach shelves.
The ideal location of the kitchen sees seamless indoor to outdoor entertaining with beautiful timber bi-fold doors leading out to the large rear timber deck which overlooks the rear yard with its soothing grassy green atmosphere. It has undergone an impressive renovation and is complete with an island bench, gas cooktop, electric oven, dishwasher, and servery window to the deck. And the main bathroom location upstairs sees that your guests are conveniently looked after.
The master bedroom is located upstairs and is an impressive size with its own walk-in wardrobe, ensuite with an enchanting claw foot bath tub, bay window seating, and timber French doors leading outside to its own private veranda space. The remaining 4 bedrooms are located downstairs, along with a third bathroom and separate laundry space.
There is single car accommodation, ample off street parking, plus tandem car space down the right hand side. Speak to the listing agent regarding the construction of a carport or garage, where quotes have been provided and an arrangement could possibly be made with the current owners.
This remarkably restored true character home is simply one of a kind, with its brilliant central location within walking distance to the CBD, and with the Boys Grammar School, St Marys and St Edmunds College’s and St Mary’s Primary just a stone’s throw away. Its highly esteemed and perfectly ideal positioning is highly sought after indeed, so do not delay your inspection on this iconic Ipswich home.
