Welcome to one of Kenmore’s best addresses, 3 Wongabel…
In 1908 this genuine Queenslander was built on the 7th hole of the old Chelmer golf course, originally facing East with grounds spanning from Little Lama St to Honour Ave. Over time the acreage was subdivided and in circa 1995, the home was raised and rotated to face Twickenham St.
In 2010, landscaped gardens and a swimming pool was added. Then in 2014, a major renovation took place covering all wet areas, electrical, new insulated roof, rear deck, Hampton’s kitchen with butler’s pantry, flooring upstairs and down, and ducted air con was installed.
Renovated to perfection, this captivating home is simply stunning. Here’s your opportunity to be the 4th lucky owner of this historic home, which has proudly stood the test of time for 111 years.
Sprawling over 1,227 sqm of prime Chelmer land with 3-street frontage, only one neighbour and ~300m2 of nature strips, this extensive property has a sense of space and tranquility. No expense has been spared with features at every corner taking full advantage of the usable level block.
Pristine white fencing and manicured hedges will have you impressed from the moment you arrive. Greeted by a Jasmine covered arbour and gated entry, follow the garden path to an enchanting butterfly staircase, while taking in soaring privacy trees, lush lawns and established gardens.
Wide verandahs, cast iron fretwork and double hung coloured glass doors are just a taste of what is to come. When you step inside, you will instantly fall in love! Constructed from quality materials and crafted with true workmanship it’s clear to see that this home is one-of-a-kind.

Style and charm are evident at every turn with original 1908 features such as 12-foot high pressed metal ceilings and roses, decorative breezeways and archways, VJ walls, picture rails and polished timber floors.
