Featured Property


Bedroom/s: 4 Bathroom/s: 2 Garage/s: 3 Land Size: 1105 Sqm Price: MID $800,000s

Steeped in local history, this wonderful one-level home was built in the 1920s by the Lahey family, pioneer settlers and sawmillers. The construction showcased beautiful timbers, which will impress you today – panelled formal rooms, rich hardwood floors and panelled walls and ceilings.

103 Martindale Street is approached via a driveway through glorious, established, low–maintenance gardens. The home is privately nestled in an abundance of flowering shrubs and climbers, mature trees and fruit trees. The 1105sqm block includes access to Clewley Street also – an easy level 600m walk to The Corinda Village, train station, Coles supermarket, RSL, library, shops, restaurants, cafes and medical facilities. It’s just 800m to St Aidans, 500m to St Josephs, 700m to Sherwood State School, a 200m stroll to The Bowling Club and 1.2km to Corinda Pool.  The southern boundary of the property borders Nosworthy Park.

Stepping into the large timber-floored enclosed entry verandah you will immediately envisage soaking up the Northerly sun and the cool afternoon breezes. Ahead, the central hallway with panelled walls and dark timber floors leads past the two large front bedrooms. Both are built-in and have access to verandah rooms, the master with its own ensuite. The third bedroom is a spacious double also with built-ins and aircon, while bedroom 4 is a marvellous garden room – floor-to ceiling windows look out on the peaceful flowering displays and, with access to the outdoors, it would also make a lovely home office.

The formal arched lounge and dining rooms display the builder’s fine handiwork – ornate timber panels and rich cabinetry, and the gorgeous original fireplace in working order. These rooms lead to a large Eastern family area with access to the garden. The dining room adjoins the large family kitchen at the rear of the home, complete with wood-burning stove, gas cook top, new electric oven, dishwasher, large expanses of granite benchtop and excellent storage, all looking towards the parkland at the rear and the walkway to Clewley Street.

Although this home has amazing ambience and character, the practicalities of modern life are not missing. You will appreciate solar hot water, solar power panels (2.5kw), 3 water tanks (2 x 3000L and 1 x 5000L), airconditioning and fans, insect screens and some crimsafe doors, single carport, large separate double garage and workshop space with mezzanine storage, large garden shed, workshop space and wine storage area underneath at rear.

Such a special home. 103 Martindale Street has retained its character throughout the decades. It nestles in a magic garden and offers upside and potential to add value if desired. The location is perfect:- flood-free, so peaceful, in leafy Corinda, one of Brisbane’s premier riverside suburbs, with Village, train and  schools within walking distance.

Beautiful as a family home in the tradition of the original Lahey family, and also perfect for locals searching for a one-level residence so close to all local amenities.
