5/23 Chermside Street, Highgate Hill QLD 4101 AUS
UNIQUE ART-DECO UNIT WITH STUNNING CITY VIEWS
Highgate Heights at 23 Chermside Street, Highgate Hill is a totally unique, historical, art deco style complex comprising only 10 units, all completely different in design, position, and size.
Unit 5 is one of the largest in the complex, with uninterrupted northern views across the city skyline. Its own private, wrap-around, hardwood timber, split level deck is enclosed by gardens and affords one of the best city vistas in Brisbane – an envied vantage point to watch Brisbane’s spectacular fireworks displays. Vintage timber windows across the expanse of the front living room completes this breathtaking cityscape experience. From the deck, step down directly to leafy private grounds with well-maintained and much-loved gardens, expansive lawn, and common recreation space, or take a couple of minutes to walk up to Highgate Hill Park and watch the sunset over Mt Coot-tha.
The unit has been with the same owner, a local visual artist, for seventeen years and over this period, it has been thoughtfully renovated and maintained, in keeping with its bespoke Art Deco aesthetic. This is a raised, ground level, city-facing unit with three steps up onto the deck. The unit is rendered, double brick, constructed with Brisbane’s rare, historic red clay bricks. It features original, polished hardwood timber floors throughout. Two generous bedrooms have built-ins and the third, without built-ins, is perfect for office, studio, or bedroom – the choice is yours. The third room has been renovated with a striking terrazzo styled, resin coated, polished concrete floor perfect for multipurpose use, and includes custom designed, Art Deco style, open slatted timber above wide, antique double French doors, opening into the window-lined living area, affording ample cross ventilation. The spacious open plan lounge/dining area has uninterrupted city views from all windows. A simple, modern kitchen with plenty of cupboard space looks out across the city. The renovated bathroom has a large shower and separate toilet. The main bedroom is secluded, tucked away at the back, and entered via a hallway. It has a private alcove of three antique windows that looks out into its own garden. The main bedroom is large enough to install an ensuite with easy installation and service access underneath the unit. There are ceiling fans in every room, and additional air-conditioning in the living area. The unit has its own lock-up garage, there is free on-street parking and access to free resident’s permit for the local precinct. There is additional head-height storage area underneath the unit.
Situated high on the ‘Hill’ the complex has a double street frontage – overlooking the city at the front entrance and tucked into a quiet cul-de-sac at the back entrance. The property sits on a large 1240m2 parcel of prime inner-city land and is a quiet, leafy retreat in the heart of the vibrant arts and entertainment precincts of West End, Southbank, and the CBD.
The complex is situated within planning zone – low-medium density residential 2 (2 or 3 storey mix) and its city frontage faces character residential 2 (1 or 2 storey existing houses pre-1946). This means the unit’s uninterrupted city views will not be built out.
The complex is low maintenance with no lift or pool, has an active body corporate committee, low body corporate fees, healthy sinking fund, and is an excellent rental opportunity.
