FARRINGTON HOUSE - ONE OF BRISBANE'S FINEST LANDMARK HISTORICAL HOMES
Ranging over 3 levels, Farrington House has a room area of a lavish 1100 sqm. The main bedroom with ensuite and bi robes has French doors opening to a private balcony. 2 guest rooms on the first level, each with ensuites, have French doors opening to a lower verandah. There are a further 4 bedrooms on the third level, one with a private balcony and all with bi cupboards. There is also a bathroom and separate toilet. The entire third level has reverse cycle ducted airconditioning with individual room controls.
The spacious, fully renovated kitchen would be the envy of many professional chefs. All the appliances from the steamer and platewarmer to the 2 ovens are Miele and the huge island bench has a second inbuilt fridge. The formal lounge and dining are connected by massive wooden doors and 6 sets of French doors open to the surrounding verandah. While this formal area with fireplace, 14? ceilings and polished wood floors is perfect for gracious entertaining, children have their own play room off the kitchen or the rumpus room which leads to the lower level verandah and pool. Other areas for relaxation include the home theatre, pool room, bar area and wine cellar. The airconditioned executive study on the second level is cool and airy and looks out to quiet verandahs. A second airconditioned office is on the first level and both rooms have cable and ADSL hookup. Protected from the elements and edged with delicate Iron Lace is the magnificent verandah pavilion perfect for al fresco family dining or formal grand occasions. There is a large laundry (including another bathroom that also services the pool area) and generous storage.
This ?Wedding Cake? home is surrounded by sturdy stone and steel fences with inbuilt safety features and security sensors to ensure privacy. The 2000 m2 block has 2-street access and entry is through a massive 900kg handcrafted steel gate and along a sandstone path to the original leadlight door. The heated 15m x 5m pool with a feature wall, waterfall and large heated spa are surrounded by 120 sqm of terracotta tiles ad hedges for privacy. There is a picture-book grassy play area, computerised sprinkler system and a garage flanked by western red cedar doors that has room for up to 6 vehicles. The high position captures summer breezes and uninterrupted views from the mountains to Moreton Bay, while the City is just minutes away.
This is a rare opportunity to come home to a serene and stately residence from Brisbane?s colonial past, discreetly enhanced with all of today?s necessary luxuries.
