8 Henry Street, Chapel Hill, QLD 4069
Exceptional Potential In A Leafy Yet Incredibly Convenient Location
I'm not a fan of real estate cliches but this property really deserves all the cliches that include the word opportunity! Think "opportunity knocks", "opportunity abounds", "opportunity in abundance", you get the idea. And if you can't see the "opportunity" here then you are simply looking at the wrong things. First time to the market in some 60 odd years, this is a whopping 842sqm in an exceptionally convenient location literally metres to the corner store, public transport and easy access to the Western Freeway all within a tranquil, rainforest setting on a quiet street with minimal traffic. The house itself is circa 1950's and hasn't changed much since it was built so the "opportunity" to renovate and restore to create a character filled home is immense. Alternatively, as much as it would break my heart, there are no restrictions to removing the existing house to build your dream home from scratch in this spectacular location. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that this type of "opportunity" less than 9km from the CBD is becoming increasingly rare and in the current market is even more so. THE HOUSE • Built approximately 1950's and full of original character features; • Open plan living & dining flows through timber framed French doors to rear balcony; • Timber floors currently on show in living / dining. Timber floors understood to be under carpet in bedrooms and hall; • 3 good sized bedrooms; • Plenty of further storage and/or opportunity for further expansion under house; • Single carport; • Structurally in good condition as outlined in Building & Pest Inspection report available upon request. THE LAND • 842sqm; • House positioned to front of block allowing for large back yard; • The backyard has been planted up with a range of native trees including a flame tree, peanut tree, native bauhinia and rainforest citrus. THE LOCATION • A peaceful forested atmosphere with many eucalypts in the street that have survived from the time when the area was still forest. The giant spotted gum on the median strip is an old growth tree, older than white settlement in Australia. Trees of this age in Brisbane are extremely rare. It was featured on the ABC TV's Gardening Australia show. • Literally 2 doors down from the local corner store and bus stop and approximately 1 minute in opposing directions to Moggill Road (350m) and Western Freeway (750m) making it exceptionally convenient; • A mere 5 minute drive to high ranking catchment primary Indooroopilly State School and Kenmore High School; • An abundance of excellent private schools are within a 3-20 minute drive including BBC (22nd*), St Peters (5th*), Brigidine (33rd*), St Aidan's (4th*), and Ambrose Treacy College (79th*). School buses for a range of other private schools depart from Kenmore Plaza; • Literally 2 minutes drive / 10 minute walk to the Kenmore shopping and restaurant precinct which includes Kenmore Plaza complete with Woolworths, Aldi, medical centre and chemist, gym, restaurants and other retail and services.
