Designed by architect James Marks and built by Robert Godsall in 1888, Weetwood is a stunning brick home situated on a sprawling block. The property presents a piece of Toowoomba history immaculately maintained and thoughtfully updated to retain the charm and character of the home.
Wrought iron gates sit at the end of the property, welcoming residents and guests to the Heritage listed home. The approach to the house is reminiscent of a drive through the country, the home tucked back from the road and nestled in mature grounds ensuring privacy. Grand in appearance this beautiful home provides a seamless blend of historic charm with modern convenience creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Immaculately maintained, rooms enjoy grand proportions, original fireplaces and stunning period features. Twelve inch cedar skirting boards, six inch cedar architraves and soaring 13 foot ceilings combine with a neutral colour scheme, allowing the character and charm to shine. Upgrades have been undertaken to bring the home into the present day, with both bathrooms newly renovated and the kitchen boasting all the conveniences of modern living.
With only minor changes to the original floor plan this spectacular home flows effortlessly. French doors open on to wide verandahs to bring the garden inside. Perfect for entertaining, the house and garden have hosted a number of weddings and large gatherings. The expansive gardens are enhanced by the addition of a salt water swimming pool. Extra features of the home include ducted reverse cycle air conditioning, accommodation for seven cars and a workshop space. A magnificent piece of early Toowoomba architecture, a rich sense of history and character remain at the heart of this lovely home.
