Rare 1,375 sqm land, character home, two street frontage, premium location.

Sold by Gabrielle Baker

Exceptional sprawling 1,375 sqm double lot with dual-street frontage to two of Hawthorne's most highly sought-after riverside streets, Virginia Ave and Arron Ave. A beautiful character home is positioned on the east-facing Virginia Ave lot, and while it can be refurbished later, it is more than comfortable in the interim.

The second lot fronting Aaron Ave is vacant land and the perfect level building site with stunning terraced stone retaining walls on the centre boundary. Aaron Ave is positioned on the Brisbane River and is a very tightly held enclave with multi-million-dollar properties nearby.

Now on the market for the first time in 35 years, the children have flown the coop, and our sellers are downsizing. The baton is now being passed to the next owner.

Bring your town planner, architect or designer and let the creative juices flow.
The 1930s double brick stucco home with a Spanish revival aesthetic is built on a sloping site and comprises 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Although the rear of the house has been altered, the front section still reflects its revival flavour and charm. There is capacity for greater river and city views.

The interior contains delightful elements including an ornate fireplace with a meticulously finished timber mantel, arched doorways, an entry niche, high decorative plaster ceilings, patterned cornices, and quality polished hardwood flooring.

Externally, the residence has an elaborately decorated arched entry portal over raw brick stairs, coupled with a handsome heavy timber door and wrought iron gate. An outstanding architectural feature is the combination of the stepped façade and curved entry sweeping up to the rounded chimney. Traditional scalloped iron hoods add shade to the leadlight windows and entry.

Three large entertaining areas either poolside, on the rear deck, or in the downstairs patio space with a rumpus room, make for a comfortable lifestyle. Further multi-purpose rooms add extra space. The stunning mosaic terrazzo floor tiling near the pool is a truly unique addition. Car accommodation includes a double side-by-side carport with off-street parking catering for 6-8 vehicles.
