Sherwood Story Book House: A Prestige High Side Residence
For the first time in over 40 years, the iconic “Sherwood Story Book House” has come to market. A landmark property, much loved by locals for its almost fairy-tale appearance with a winding front path, arched doorway, chimney, stucco and Brisbane tuff stone detailing, it is one of the most significant character homes in the district. It is looking for a new owner with a love for vintage design, style and a passion for renovating.
Positioned on a huge 1,061m2 block, there are plenty of opportunities to extend the home in the future (STCA) while a skilled renovator could make the existing property shine even brighter. Built in 1934, it exudes timeless elegance and quality craftsmanship. It is a cavity brick home with exquisite lead light windows, silky oak skirting boards and architraves, 3-metre-high horsehair plaster ceilings, bespoke light fixtures and wrought iron door fixtures.
The oak curved front door opens to a long hallway, effortlessly flowing to a generous lounge and a formal dining room. These spaces are divided by oak and lead light sliding doors, providing connectivity and separation as you need it. The kitchen was recently modernized in 2016 and has a 900mm oven, dishwasher, ample storage and wide fridge allotment.
The home has four generously sized bedrooms including an oversized master retreat with a large bay window and an adjoining sunroom which makes a great reading space or office, also suitable for conversion to a walk-in-robe or ensuite. There is a lovely bathroom with original hexagonal and English glazed tiles.
Downstairs has an additional bedroom with an ensuite – perfect for guests, teenagers or independent living.
