With a facade somewhere between Hamptons style and old-world elegance, it's easy to be very quickly captivated by this exceptionally charming Kenmore home at first sight but in truth it is so much more than just a pretty face!
"Conveniently located" would be an understatement being mere metres from shops, restaurants, services and the Marshall Lane bus stop while Kenmore Plaza is also within easy walking distance. Positioned on a 711 sqm completely flat block this home has been well loved and is now being offered to the market for the first time in over 45 years. Undoubtedly ready for renovation but the opportunity to turn this into your dream home is immense.
Don't be mistaken, this is a very special property that in the current market will be snapped up in a heartbeat. If you think this could be the one for you then I can but very strongly recommend attending the first open house and making your interest known!
THE HOUSE • Typical of many Kenmore homes of the 60s and 70s, the layout upstairs offers 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, L-shaped lounge and dining plus kitchen; • What isn't so typical is the front patio stretching the full width of the house and accessible through French doors from two bedrooms and living room; • The upper level is completed by a larger patio to the rear which is perfect for entertaining; • Upstairs and downstairs offer the same amount of internal floor space which has previously been used as further rumpus and bedroom space* and currently includes an additional bathroom and laundry.
THE LAND • 711 sqm block; • Possibly one of the flattest blocks in Kenmore!; • Inground pool; • Garden shed.
THE LOCATION • Take a short walk for a coffee or dinner with plenty of cafes and restaurants only metres away; • Kenmore Plaza complete with Woolworths, Aldi and specialty shops plus other services, medical centres and vet are within a 500m radius; • In fact, why not just get rid of the car multiple and very regular buses to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, CBD and UQ are also easily accessed on both Marshall Lane and Moggill Road; • Just over a kilometre away, catchment primary Kenmore South State School (ranked 16th in Queensland**) is only a 15 minute walk and catchment Kenmore High (ranked 45th in Queensland**) is 2.6km away; • An abundance of excellent private schools are within a 10-20 minute drive including BBC (22nd**), St Peters (5th**), Brigidine (33rd***) and Ambrose Treacy College (79th**). Private buses are also easily accessible for private schools further afield; • A location combining lifestyle with so many amenities right on the doorstep really doesn't come much better than this!
I've said it once but I will say it again this truly will be gone in a heartbeat! Make sure you prioritise viewing this one asap!
* Downstairs presently misses the 2.4m "legal height" requirement by approximately half a centimetre due to the addition of a ceiling below the upstairs flooring.
