Perched proudly in one of Kenmore’s most leafy precincts, welcome to 20 Crestview Street Kenmore. A house that needs no introduction, it needs to be seen. Architecturally designed in 1968 for the founding director of the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, this home has had an exuberant history as the venue of many high profile celebrity gatherings. Our sellers are on the move and their instructions are clear, this home will be sold at Auction if not before, so call your broker, register your interest and get ready to bid.

With 321sqm of opulent Kenmore living space, the home’s stunning and functional layout was designed for two things… luxurious living and entertaining. Inside the home, the main level offers living space in excess. The vast sunken living room, the heart of the home, is accentuated by the striking double-height ceilings and a beautiful centrepiece fireplace. This floor is also home to a separate family area, an open-planned kitchen and dining encompassing the outdoor entertaining area. Upstairs is a real treat. Here you’ll find 4 of the 5 bedrooms all connected via an elegant internal balcony that overlooks the living areas. The master suite is located in its own private wing and boasts a massive ensuite and double built-in robes. Downstairs is a huge bonus. Here we have a massive legal height rumpus ideal for those working for home, teenagers’ retreat or the professional musician… the opportunities are endless!

But Outdoor entertaining is where this property comes into its own. The expansive alfresco area has been recently resurfaced with natural bluestone tiles from Melbourne. This area seamlessly flows between the kitchen, living area, and family room perfect for entertaining the largest family gatherings. For the children, we also have a spacious turfed back yard area large enough for a trampoline, jungle gym or a friendly game of soccer. All these areas are also adjacent to the inground lap-pool large enough to satisfy the most avid athlete.

Your new address is located in a private, leafy street, just minutes from the vibrant shopping at Kenmore Village and dining hub. Some of Brisbane’s finest schools are a stone’s throw away offering you that perfect balance between location and lifestyle for families of any age. Palm Street Park is found just 350m down the road with plenty of space for the kids to stretch their legs and burn some energy. For those looking to commute, you will be pleased to know that your nearest bus stop to Indooroopilly, Toowong and Brisbane’s CBD is just 270m down the road.
