Chandler 640 London Road
Timeless Family Acreage Estate
Adored by the same family for almost 20 years, 640 London Rd is a timeless residence in the heart of one of Brisbane's most prestigious acreage suburbs.
This extremely private 1.01ha estate delivers an exceptionally rare combination of enviable rural lifestyle on the fringe of the city.
A beautifully detailed renovation, recently completed, has successfully updated the north-facing double-storey home without compromising its original character and charm.
Behind a large electric gate is a grand porte-cochère overlooking a striking 1.5 tonne cast iron water fountain.
Impeccably manicured hedging frames the perimeter of the elevated landscaped allotment which offers scope to add a tennis court, outbuildings, and equestrian arena (subject to council approval).
Recline on the rear sandstone-paved patio and watch the sun set over the in-ground salt water swimming pool, par-three golf hole, grass bunker and putting green, children's play area and large outdoor fire pit.
Designed to cater for a wide variety and large number of guests, a bar and games room is at the rear of the home connecting to the pool, patio and gardens.
Upon entry a soaring void, high ceilings and banks of windows enhance the impression of space and light.
Central on the ground level are the majority of shared living zones including the formal lounge and formal dining room, family and meals room, and a kitchen equipped with Miele appliances.
An arched window on the upper level, visible from the drive, filters light through to a sitting room and the adjoining master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
This tastefully designed and decorated five-bedroom home is one the vendors have felt blessed to have occupied.
Their wish is to pass on the property to another family who will value the rewarding lifestyle intrinsically linked to a residence of this calibre.
Real estate on London Rd, Chandler is tightly held and seldom available on the market.
