In this day and age it is extremely rare that you are given the chance to secure an Iconic Ipswich residence offering untouched original elegance and still retaining its original block of land.
This grand home sits at the peak of Salisbury Road and takes advantage of sweeping views over Limestone Park and Ipswich City.
Inside this floor plan showcases four generously sized bedrooms plus a fifth bedroom (the original Nanny or servants quarters) which is located to the rear of the home.
Some of the four bedrooms offer gorgeous bay windows with rarely seen original doors and 2 bedrooms offer access to the sleep outs.
Catering to the professional buyer this home features a large home office with its own external access making it the ideal spot to work from home.
Designed to impress this grand home boasts a massive formal Parlor room with 3 floor to ceiling sash windows, a stone fire place and there is even an original servery to the kitchen.
Adjoining the parlor room is a massive formal dining room which has panoramic views.
Upon entering the kitchen you will feel as though you have stepped back in time with a large floor space, plenty of cupboards and an original gas stove that has such impeccably cared for enamel that I doubt it has seen much use.
The kitchen space is generous and could be transformed into a designer chef's haven whilst still retaining its authentic heritage.
Located near the kitchen is huge 3m x 1.5m pantry and also the fifth bedroom of the home which would be have been used as the servants or nanny quarters in the early 1900's.
The bathroom must have been updated during the Art Deco period and today showcases stunning Terrazzo floors, art deco tiling which is in pristine condition as well as a cast iron sink & toilet.
Outside sweeping verandas wrap around the home not only giving it a charming street appeal but also offering shelter and protection to the home from the elements.
We believe in the 1980s a small section of the verandah was enclosed and utilized as 2 sleep outs as you see today but the original balustrades and fretwork were saved and stored under the home so the astute restorer could easily reinstate the verandah if they desire.
Underneath the home you will find that this home sits solidly on its original timber stumps, there is a laundry, second toilet & a remote double garage also on this level as well as oodles of storage space.
Outside the once inspirational gardens have been let go after the elderly owner moved into a nursing home some years ago, with some creative design this grand and often admired garden could be reinstated and flourish once again.
The home has also been updated and maintained with a restored terracotta roof, solar power and a bore added and there is an alarm system and 2 rainwater tanks on offer.
Council records show the original block was purchased in 1917 and archive photos show the home sitting where you see it today from as early as 1946.
