Perched on Dutton Park’s largest private land holding, heritage Listed Grand Residence “Kurrowah” is one of the last of its kind remaining in Brisbane. Constructed in 1915-1916, the home was designed by renowned Architect Lange Powell, and features a rare hilltop position with panoramic vistas over the city as well as Mt Coot-tha.
Once inside the gates, the sweeping driveway extends to the North-Eastern rear of the house with its expansive, child-friendly backyard and stunning city views. To compliment the grand home, this impressive outdoor space is only waiting for a little creative vision, to design a world class outdoor entertainment area. The stained glass, oak entry door welcomes visitors into a lavish hallway, with an exquisite Music Room immediately to the right, including beautiful parquetry flooring and an open fireplace.
The expertly restored, ornate ceilings are true works of art. This room leads through to the restored piazza with its private timber louvres, revealing the leafy outlook. Located down the hall are the majority of bedrooms, including the grand Master Suite, with a walk-in dressing room and access to the piazza. The opulent Drawing room features breath-taking timber craftsmanship and a gorgeous fireplace – the perfect spot to escape the world over a Cognac in front of the fire.
Whilst the majority of the house has been flawlessly restored to quality detail, the kitchen and ensuite have been left deliberately untouched, offering a wealth of opportunity for future renovations that capitalise on the incredible views and original features of this much-loved property.
