A fusion of traditional character and contemporary design, welcome to Rockbourne, a rare and richly restored piece of Paddington history.
Nestled on an expansive block in the iconic Ithaca Precinct, this north-facing, circa 1870 Queenslander boasts a blend of tradition, luxury and innovation. Capturing easterly breezes and city skyline glimpses from its elevated position. With no expense spared in the meticulous transformation of this inner-city haven, Rockbourne is one of the original homes in this coveted enclave, boasting the grace and charm of a bygone era.
The long-term owners have honoured the home’s history by restoring the traditional façade and internal elements, while still meeting the needs of modern day living. The gourmet kitchen, with marble benchtops, and European appliances is paired with a butler’s pantry, Subzero fridge, Vintec wine fridges and an additional dishwasher to ensure entertaining is effortless.
Similarly, character charm shines through in the six bedrooms, featuring an elegant master retreat with ensuite and envious dressing room. All bathrooms are accented by marble finishes and hand-crafted cabinetry with an authentic, cast-iron clawfoot bath in the main bathroom. The hidden hero of the home is a cosy, sunlit study with floor-to-ceiling library opening onto the wrap around balcony. Outdoors, paradise awaits with established trees, poolside pavilion and lush, landscaped surrounds, creating a secluded oasis where everyone will long to congregate. A block of land this size is a rarity in Paddington, providing ample space for vegetable gardens, citrus trees and chicken coup.
Other superior features include zoned and ducted air-conditioning, Sonos Home Theatre System, C bus lighting controls, back to base security and 1600 bottle wine cellar. Perfectly positioned just 5 kilometres from the CBD. Public transport, parklands, Suncorp Stadium and the vibrant Latrobe Terrace shopping and dining precinct are a short stroll away.
