Old world, colonial craftsmanship meets modern-day living at Harwich, an exceptional heritage haven nestled at the heart of a sprawling 923 square metre block in Clayfield.

Brought to life by the celebrated architect Robin Dods, this Queenslander has been exquisitely renovated to a high standard, without losing any of the hallmarks one would expect from its era whilst delivering an enticing opportunity for enviable living and entertaining.

Flanked by traditional, wide verandahs at the front, side and rear, this is where residents will want to linger a while to soak up the picture perfect surrounds. The glorious, landscaped gardens feature an automated watering system, encouraging the lush greenery. There is also an expansive, covered rear deck with an inviting north east aspect, to gather with guests while watching the young – and young at heart – frolic in the heated saltwater in-ground pool.

Indoors, the residence features a gourmet kitchen with high end appliances, an elegant lounge room with open fireplace, bathrooms in soothing, neutral tones, a separate dining room and a light-filled living room which integrates seamlessly with the deck.

The double bedrooms echo the delightful ambience of this charming home, while a separate master wing, designed to maximise peace and privacy, featuring an ensuite, walk-in robe plus an adjoining multi-purpose office/study/parents retreat or media room. Downstairs, the residence offers generous storage, laundry and a double carport.

Situated in a highly sought-after enclave, approximately 7.5 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, the home is just a short stroll from prestigious local schools, including Clayfield College, St Rita’s College, and Eagle Junction State Primary School. As well, shops, restaurants, cafes, and an array of public transport options are nearby, and if travel beckons, Brisbane Airport is just 10 minutes away.
