ANOTHER ONE SOLD BY JILL FRANKLIN - RESULTS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
Steeped in Ipswich history from the date of the first title search in 1915; beautiful Balmoral has undergone a massive renovation and has been enjoyed by the new owners for the last 18 months. Custodians have been traced back to Harold Benjamin Haigh son of former prominent business man William Henry Haigh, then to Leslie Mansfield who was injured in WW1. The Savige family also bought and owned blocks in this part of town; a number of which have been sold to new owners in more recent times. Very distinctive in its architectural design; Balmoral has many features used by George Brockwell Gill (prominent architect in early 1900's in Ipswich) in the buildings he has designed in Ipswich; namely Bostock Chambers, Old Flour Mill and RSL. This delightful home sits on a high 759m2 block in the prestigious Girls Grammar school precinct. The home features 3 bedrooms (master with WIR and ensuite), bedrooms 2 and 3 with BIR's. Master has french doors opening to the front covered porch and to the very stylish ensuite and WIR. The ensuite is finished in sparking white, big vanity with lots of storage, large shower and mirror and the most beautiful modern contrasting floor tiles. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are elegant and stylish and the main bathroom is finished in same colours as the ensuite. Entry to the home is via a small covered front porch; through a distinctive Brockwell Gill main door featuring coloured glass panels. Beautiful honey coloured polished floor boards, distinctive archways and architraves allows flow through to the main lounge. This is a light filled room with a welcoming ambiance; a great blend of modern, character and charm. The kitchen - "oh my goodness" - this is a chefs delight! Cupboards and drawers that you could only dream of owning, great food preparation areas, 90cm stove, large fridge space, dishwasher, eating bar for your casual meals and feature glass cupboards and shelving. Off the kitchen is the dining and casual living area. This looks through sliding windows to the courtyard area and landscaped rear yard. Windows have feature glass panels that match inserts in the front entry door and have Crimsafe screens. A real surprise package is at the rear of the home. Transformed from the laundry to a most beautiful tiled reading room; this is an additional quiet area that could be used as a study if wished. A place for your morning coffee, casual chat, read a book, or an extension of your outdoor tiled, covered courtyard. Classic and timeless, high end lighting throughout, paint colours chosen to blend with the features of the home. Quality window dressings in fitting with décor. High ceilings (3m in main part of home), beautiful honey coloured polished floors. Internal laundry with ss sink, under bench washer and dryer provisions, folding bench. Air conditioning, some windows with Crimsafe security. Fully fenced yard- paved entry walkway; loads of room for a pool, caravan and boat. Triple bay powered shed-- concrete driveway; Solar HW and huge Solar system. Traditional balustrading, outdoor shade shutters, landscaped yard, new turf. A truly inspiring property in very special surrounds. The Heritage and charm of the era has been gently preserved but updating gives new perspective on modern character and charm.
