A distinguished Queenslander with sweeping northern vistas, timeless character, and endless possibilities, this treasure named Lucy May sits on peaceful elevated grounds less than 2km from the CBD and metres from Brisbane’s finest schools and riverside lifestyle precincts.

Lucy May is a stately 1920’s residence, lovingly held within the one family through multiple generations. Retaining elegant original features including three metre-high ceilings, VJ walls, sash windows, and handcrafted timberwork, the home has also been sympathetically updated for modern family living.

Expansive open-plan living spaces filter into a classic hallway, through to a second family zone and out onto an impressive entertaining deck. Boasting a perfect northern aspect overlooking the rear yard, it captures panoramic treetop, city and Mt Coot-Tha views. Breathtaking both day and night, these never-to-be-built-out views can be equally enjoyed from home’s garden level.

The property extends beyond the large secure grassed yard to an additional paved area and double lock-up garage or workshop with separate driveway access from Brook Street. This versatile outdoor configuration offers the ideal space, orientation and access to construct a swimming pool if desired.

Back inside, the upper floor of the home hosts four large bedrooms, master with ensuite and walk-in in robe, plus a separate study. Meanwhile, the lower level has been transformed into spacious granny-flat style studio accommodation with its own kitchenette, bathroom and entry. Promising immediate liveability, the home features a granite-top kitchen with modern appliances including dishwasher and gas cooktop, ceiling fans throughout, security screens, two brand new toilets, water tanks and a front remote carport.

Lucy May sits within catchment of the coveted Brisbane State High and moments from other prestigious colleges including St Laurence’s and Somerville House. Positioned just a short walk from local transport, shops and amenities, residents are also walking distance to West End’s restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as Griffith University and the world-class Southbank Parkland, Arts and Entertainment precinct.
