Timeless Sherwood Queenslander Turning to a New Chapter
“GLENGALLEN” was once just a small home where a young married couple started their journey. Over decades, it slowly transformed into a loving place where ladies gathered and sipped tea, where children took their first steps and friends were always welcomed for a meal at any time of the year.
This beautiful and significant family address has seen it all, including the perilous times of WWII. It is a fine example of the heritage that we adore about Sherwood, and it is a sentimental time for this wonderful household who have cherished, restored and maintained it since the late 1920s.
Many tasteful renovations have helped to keep it up to date, while the classic features of a Queenslander like high ceilings, polished timber floors, leadlight windows and French doors have been incorporated into the new aesthetic.
The main house has multiple living areas including a front lounge, central family space and rear formal dining and kitchen. The kitchen has quality appliances, timber benchtops, ample drawer storage and charming casement windows.
There is a generous rear deck that gazes across the established trees that surround the home providing both privacy and pleasant green outlooks that can be enjoyed year-round. It is an ideal spot for a summer barbecue or winter feast with your favourite people. If you venture into the woods you will discover what is believed to be an old World War 2 bunker.
The main house has three bedrooms, two have built-in robes and one features an original bay window. There is a lovely main bathroom on the upper level. Downstairs has the flexibility of a massive under-croft/storage area, a workshop with 3-phase power, a locked storage room, and a second bathroom.
Connected by the deck is an impressive separate two-level studio/guest quarters that opens the door to dual living arrangements as well as working-from-home options. Upstairs has a sweeping studio/additional living zone with air-conditioning and integrated desks. Underneath is another lounge that connects to the 4th bedroom and a massive cellar with a Panasonic air-conditioner.
It has a fantastic location only moments from the magical Sherwood Arboretum, train station and buses, close to Sherwood Central Shopping Centre, a selection of boutique retailers and delicious cafes, or it is a quick drive over to the impressive multi-level Indooroopilly Shopping Centre! It falls within the catchment zones for Sherwood State School and Corinda State High School, and it is close to St Aidan’s, St Joseph’s, St Peter’s Lutheran College & the University of Queensland. Plus, Brisbane City is only 20 minutes from your doorstep!
