JUST LISTED – 2 BROOK STREET, SOUTH BRISBANE
A Little Piece of South Brisbane History
Nestled behind a white picket fence in a highly coveted position in South Brisbane, this charming ‘late colonial’ cottage offers an inner-city lifestyle with true sanctuary and convenience.
Originally constructed in 1891, this pretty little gem was one of the first cottages to be built in South Brisbane and has been progressively modernised over the years to provide all the comforts of today.
With a lush rear garden sanctuary as a back yard, and everything literally at your doorstep … mere walking distance to Brisbane State High, Somerville House, St. Laurence’s College, Southbank, rail, bus and ferry public transport, local shops and restaurants and the bustling café culture of West End … this delightful home, in the most amazing location, offers the opportunity to live a car-free lifestyle if desired!
Enter the traditional bull nose verandah and step into the central hall.
The first 2 bedrooms flow off this hall and feature the original 1890’s hand carved breezeways.
The formal living room is positioned in the centre of the home, with the 3rd bedroom adjacent.
This bedroom features a fully integrated, fold-down, Queen size bed, which cleverly converts into a wall-mounted cupboard when not needed. No need to compromise on space or utility with this handy bedroom inclusion … just perfect for sleeping, working or recreation.
The modern kitchen features stone bench tops, a convenient breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances and takes centre stage in the open plan living/dining room at the rear of the home.
Complete with a study nook, that can be hidden away when not in use, this beautiful space features raked ceilings and two sets of French doors that open onto a private, covered entertaining deck that overlooks the lush rear gardens.
A paved courtyard, terraced gardens with tropical plantings, a pretty pond with fountain and a herb garden create a beautiful sanctuary beyond the home.
This fully fenced, usable back yard is highly coveted in South Brisbane …perfect for children and pets, with room for even a trampoline!
Sitting on the rear deck in the evenings, enjoying the city lights through the trees, listening to the tinkling fountain, you have to remind yourself that you are walking distance to the Brisbane CBD and the bustling café culture of West End.
