“Four Winds” occupies a unique OLD Eagle Heights position directly opposite Bishop Park and is secluded behind what can only be described as an irreplaceable garden started no doubt when the home was built in 1939. It typifies every renovator’s dream while being eminently liveable just as it is. For antique collectors and lovers, it is a dream come true. Anyone who adores grand old gardens could think of nothing better than to do a gentle revamp here. Removing, maybe some really old palms and tree ferns along with a few trees too close to the house, would make a fabulous difference without in anyway damaging the beauty of what is here.

Yet, it is more than just an historic pre-war home in the centre of Eagle Heights within walking distance of shops, parks and National Parks. Because it has 3 titles with a total street frontage of 45.4 metres, it offers multiple options for future use. Yes, it could be demolished with due reverence to remove and save these wonderfully aged (and no doubt valuable) Jarrah floors, Silky Oak doors & windows that include many diamond pane windows, and also the Walnut panelling in some of the rooms. The garage could go too. Then the entire, well over ½ acre site could be redeveloped into a multiple housing complex. Reading the Town Plan as best I can, I think 6 group titled homes is quite possible here, although please check with the Scenic Rim Shire Council on this, as the rules may have recently changed!

Another option would be to sell off the title with the garage on it and retain the other 2 titles consisting of over 13 acre, which would leave a 30 metre street frontage and give the buyer enough return to do all the renovations both inside and out. There maybe other options too, such as rearranging certain boundaries within what is simply a 45 metre x 50 metre almost square piece of land.

I guess peoples’ reactions to old homes vary, but for me this tri-level home offers space and yesterday’s charm all bundled together. The main lounge room with its diamond paned bay window looking into the front garden and its recessed boxed window looking out into the back garden, is really one of those magical spaces that conjures up the decades past when folk gathered in the parlour for afternoon tea. The dining room is much simpler, but would still look beautiful with an antique suite replacing the current furnishings. Then there is the the awesome sunroom / rumpus with its brick fireplace and attendant leadlight window, situated on the lower level. This is no small room and the white painted ceiling with its matching exposed beams gives a special sense of openness enhanced by the wide area of windows and the French doors opening directly out into the garden.

The sunroom adjoins the kitchen which is quite clearly a product of the major revamp done during the eighties. As the photo shows, it has everything except a full oven, but it does include a convection / microwave and an aged but obviously still functional dishwasher. At the time it was done, it obviously was not a cheap renovation, so that is why it is still in pretty good condition. The spacious main bathroom with a pair of diamond pane windows must have been done at the same time, but it has been so well loved that it almost looks like new! The bedrooms are very individual. One is located on an exterior corner and has French doors opening to a garden level deck. That set of French doors abuts a matching set of floor length windows on the adjoining wall. The other double bedroom has that superb Walnut wainscotting while the third is an attic style bedroom ideal for kids or a teenager who wants to get away from everyone.

Another room of interest is used for table tennis while there is also an old photographic darkroom here. The garden studio can be a home office or a place for those teens to get out of the way.

Yet, when all is said and done, the real value lies in the unique location and the 3 blocks of land, each encompassing 759 square metres in a neat rectangle. With that in mind, our very genuine seller has priced this property for quick sale AT LAND VALUE ONLY to allow for the full range of buyers who will find this property of great interest. Who ever makes the first sensible offer will be its new owner!
