“A brilliant floor plan combining generously proportioned formal and informal living areas to create a sophisticated yet welcoming home that invites you in. This includes rich timber floors, VJ walls, leadlight windows and doors, period working fireplace in the formal lounge and “Dods” use of clever serpentine verandah features.
There are high ceilings throughout, many with pressed metal detailing and banks of strategically placed windows that fill each space with soft natural light whilst providing stunning views of the Brisbane River and landscaped grounds that surround the home.
“A practical quality “Wyer and Craw” kitchen with casual sitting and dining area, modern and fresh offers extensive white cabinetry, stone benchtops, quality European appliances, and verandah access.
“There are 5 bedrooms in total, 3 up and 2 down, (separate office, studio room, and large downstairs family room). Most rooms have access to covered verandahs on 3 sides of the home. Perfectly positioned on an elevated yet private allotment, this property is further enhanced by its prime exclusive position surrounded by some of the best real estate in Brisbane.
“Colmar” is a wonderful combination of Colonial charm, modern facilities for today’s lifestyle and a clever timeless design well suited for our sub tropical climate.”
