This wonderful property in historic Weinholt Street, also known as the â€œAvenue of Honourâ€ is being offered for sale.
Honourâ€™s aside, Weinholt Street has a fascinating history. Named after the very colourful and eccentric Mr Arnold Weinholt: a graduate of Eton, early pioneer, landholder, parliamentarian, soldier, and as legend tells it – spy! â€” the famed trees that form â€˜a guard of honourâ€™ â€” the Avenue of Honour – were planted by the residents of the street in the 1940â€™s, to honour the fallen soldiers of the second world war.
Grand in proportions, this home built in the 1920â€™s, sitting on an 810 sqm parcel of land, is now looking for a new owner to create a new chapter of their own. As you walk up the stairs through the front door, it’s difficult not to fall in love with the stained glass windows, the gorgeous trees in the front yard or the pot belly fire tucked quietly into the corner of the lounge.
With four bedrooms – the master is an impressive suite that includes a walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite, a separate retreat, and a window seat â€” three bathrooms, four car accommodations, and multiple beautifully detailed living spaces thereâ€™s room to roam upstairs, and plenty of quiet corners for privacy should you need it. Downstairs thereâ€™s three fully converted utility spaces currently being used as an office, bedroom and media room.
This home features all the traditional fittings of a Queenslander high ceilings, polished floors,VJ walls and french doors opening out onto a covered patio or the rear deck.
Outside, the covered rear deck overlooks the saltwater pool and the landscaped grounds. The mature garden features large trees and manicured edges that create privacy and naturally screened outdoor living.
Sherwood itself is a beautiful suburb, and forms part of the green corridor that hugs the Brisbane River. Home to the Sherwood Arboretum, Sherwood has excellent amenities and historical pockets, like the Avenue of Honour.
This home offers a rare opportunity to be part of Brisbaneâ€™s history. How exciting.
