Set on over an acre of land on top of Finney’s Hill, Hilltop’s curving driveway is lined by hedges and shady flowering trees hung with ferns. The home is built for Brisbane’s climate. In summer, the lounge opens up through French doors to the terrace with views stretching across the river and the greenery of Brisbane’s western suburbs. The louvred eating area looks out to the trees and the generous, covered outdoor eating area caters to long, lazy meals. In winter, the superb fireplace warms the loungeroom with its ornate ceiling and classic arches. The formal dining, with diamond leadlights and bay window, is similarly appealing. In addition to the main bedroom with ensuite, there are a further 4 bedrooms, games room, guest room with adjoining bathroom and traditional den with fireplace. The size and style of these rooms endows them with versatility ? some could easily convert to a music room, further living areas or library.
Although this home has been immaculately maintained, the utility rooms have been renovated to meet the demands of today’s living. The kitchen is light and airy with a curved sculptured ceiling, recessed lighting and European appliances. Light streams through the glass brick walls bordering the crisp white bathroom with its stark black marble benchtop.
With their 200 year old tallow wood trees, the grounds represent precious real estate in this desirable suburb. The property is close to shops, schools and university and all facilities. This is a rare opportunity to capture a gem from the past that represents a solid investment for the future.
