"FALKIRK" CIRCA 1943

Positioned on an expansive, elevated 931sqm landscaped block that captures outstanding city and mountain views "Falkirk" 10 Fairfield St Annerley is a spacious family home. This home has been much loved by the same family for over 25 years.

Falkirk was built circa 1943 by Mabel Amy Edmiston and was given its name by her. Mabel was a music teacher and taught from rooms below the house (now the perfect air-conditioned home office), having previously taught at 365 Ann Street, Brisbane. In 1995 the current owners purchased "Falkirk" and carried out renovations and an extensions in 1999 to create a home that will continue to stand the test of time.

A stunning and well thought out tri-level addition to the rear of the original cavity brick house creates a graceful fusion of traditional entertainment spaces and modern family living. Meander down the original hallways through to the formal sitting room, sunroom and lounge all with the character and features we have come to love of yesteryear; original fireplace, built-in silky oak cabinetry, French doors, leadlight casement windows, vibrant wallpaper all blending in with the lovely silky oak features throughout, creating a home full of warmth and love. One can only imagine the stories that "Falkirk" could share from the by-gone days. The feature many will love and admire on this level is the gorgeous built in bookcases that creates a library at the heart of the home. This level is also where the Main bedroom with a walk in wardrobe is located, encased by leadlight windows and silky oak - a common theme throughout the old and the new.

Unlike many homes of this era the layout embraces the intimacy of smaller spaces with generous living rooms. The main living area, located beside the kitchen and adjoining terrace, can easily cater to a crowd, while the intimate feeling of the space makes smaller gatherings just as special. When evening falls adjourn to the upper terrace, where the spectacular city and mountain views can be admired. This level also has two large bedrooms, serviced by a bathroom with shower over bath and a separate powder room.

The list of features of this home is extensive, some of these standout features include an oversized garage through the electric gate with room for a collection of cars; large separate laundry that doubles as the perfect outdoor bar; separate two room offices with tea making facilities; four storerooms providing plenty of space for a large walk in wine cellar; split system reverse cycle air-conditioning throughout; chef inspired kitchen and extensive outdoor garden and sitting areas.

Located in an elevated and prestigious location in Annerley, 10 Fairfield St provides inner city living at its finest, walking distance public transport, close to the recently upgraded Fairfield Garden Shopping Centre, with easy access to schools including Junction Park & within the highly sought after Brisbane South State Secondary College, hospitals and Universities; just a bike ride to the Green Bridge connecting you to the University of Queensland…..work and play are never too far away. Families also will love the inner city location close to every convenience imaginable.
