Elizabeth House is a truly magnificent home, grandly positioned on 4.6 acres of sweeping lawns and beautifully established gardens. Privately positioned at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this home brings a feeling of peace and tranquillity.
Visitors cannot help but be impressed when they first catch sight of this stunning home as drive through the circa 1890 cast iron gates, and around the elegant circular driveway complete with an impressive bronze fountain.
The graceful entry staircase leads onto wide verandahs that surround the entire home. The magnificent lead light windows and entry panels, encased in Western Red Cedar, were original features sourced from Petrie Mansions in Brisbane. These doors and windows were hand crafted from red cedar logs. Surian Cedar French doors open from every room onto the wide verandahs, stunning leadlight windows, again sourced from Petrie Mansions, light up every room with their grace and elegance. Carefully selected Porcelain Spanish chandeliers exquisitely enhance the heritage feel of this home. Stunning thick timber floorboards sourced from an old wool shed and beautifully restored to fit perfectly into the design of this outstanding home.
Built in 2004 by renowned local builder, Jason Baulch of Blue Grass Homes cleverly designed the home to incorporate all the features and history of yesteryear with the convenience of modern-day living. Some of the features include the four massive bedrooms, each with French doors to the verandah; the master bedroom with peaceful views over the gardens and rose coloured feature lead light windows; the custom made quality kitchen, oozing country style charm; and the living and dining room featuring ornate, decorative coffered ceilings, hand blown glass and crystal chandeliers and decorative timber fretwork.
A quality build such as Elizabeth House, incorporating a rich history in its heritage features, is hard to find.
