Ashgrove’s Most Elevated Home – Welcome Home to Parkhill
Offering unmatched, 360-degree city and mountain views from its spot in Ashgrove’s most elevated lot, this property oozes a Cape Cod country estate feel, located less than 15 minutes by car from central Brisbane. Brimming with potential, you’ll find everything you and your family need for the luxurious lifestyle you seek.
This property’s claim to fame is that it was once owned by Mr William McCallum Parkes, until it was subdivided and auctioned as part of the Parkhill Estate in November 1920. It was also once optioned by Warner Bros as a film location! The impressive open plan living and dining areas are the focal point of the home and are complemented by easy care wooden flooring and soaring ceilings to create an incredible sense of space and openness. The galley-style kitchen is wonderfully well appointed with gas cooking facilities, ample cabinetry and bench space and it enjoys an abundance of morning sunlight. A sliding servery window from the kitchen makes entertaining easy, as does entry through the traditional barn door leading directly from the kitchen to the deck. Outside, the spacious deck is positioned to enjoy refreshing breezes throughout the day while protecting you from the heat of the afternoon sun. It leads directly to the grassed, fenced courtyard, which is ideal for children and pets to play. Accommodation comprises five spacious bedrooms, two downstairs and three upstairs. Upstairs, the master suite features a walk-through robe and ensuite bathroom with 2-way access. The additional bedrooms share a light filled bathroom with shower over bath combination. The fifth bedroom downstairs would make a great home office as it has direct access outside.
