New Farm 55 Welsby Street
Family Estate Property: Three homes; One property
This multi-residential property has been in the one family since the 1950's. Over the past few decades the family has completed some amazing transformations. What you see today is a very different proposition to what it was when it was originally built in the 1940's.
Since the early 2000's time, the 759sqm block has been completely transformed from one traditional Queenslander to three separate living spaces A three bedroom stately main house (traditional Queenslander) and two adjoining three bedroom two storey townhouses at the rear. It really is an amazing thing this family has done here. Since the entire property has been owned by the one family, all separate premises are on the one title, however subject to approval you may apply to the Brisbane City Council to separate the properties or you can live in any one of the beautifully appointed homes and rent out the others. Or do what this family did and keep every one you love close by.
The main house oozes traditional Queensland charm with attention to detail in high ceilings, ornate cornices and untreated hardwood floors. A stunning feature of the main living area is a gorgeous gas heater/fireplace which makes the whole house warm and cozy in the winter months. You'll enjoy entertaining on the massive wrap around deck on the upper level which lets in loads of light and air. High ceilings means summer is a breeze in this magnificent home. With too many features to mention, be assured you will love the oversized built in bedrooms, the stylish ensuite and walk in robe in the master bedroom, the huge central kitchen and large lounge room. There's also a separate almost self-contained kitchen/lounge/storage area downstairs that will take little work to make into another self contained living area.
The two three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, two storey townhouses at the rear of the property are also stunning in their elegant design and surprisingly private. Each has their own back courtyard oasis off the large kitchen complete with plenty of storage and quality appliances. Leave the cares of the world behind as you enter your new home. Large living areas and beautiful big kitchen makes family times and entertaining a breeze. You'll also love the easy-care high-gloss mixed hardwood floorboards throughout as well as massive storage with built-ins in the garage, and ample wardrobe space in the bedrooms upstairs. Each townhouse has it's own auto lock up garage and dedicated visitor carpark space. And security is no problem with auto access gated entry at the street entry at the front of the property and auto garage doors to each home.
