If Ipswich was to do a series of postcards showcasing our stunning heritage homes, Dene Brae would definitely be amongst them.
Current owners have lived here for over 40 years, now's your chance to make it your family home and be part of Ipswich's history.
Built in 1882 for local merchant Mr Reed, from Lee & Reed Grocers in Brisbane Street.
On a massive 1558m2 fully landscaped block sits this magnificent example of an Ipswich Colonial Home.
Inside you'll find 4 bedrooms with 12 foot ceilings throughout and Hoop Pine floorboards.
The formal lounge has the original fireplace. 2 of the bedrooms open out through French doors to what use to be the side verandah which has now been extended to become a beautiful space for entertaining or just relaxing. This space reminds me of the Raffles in Singapore for some reason. I can imagine having a High Tea out there. The entire area is covered by a motorised Vergola allowing you to control the amount of light you want or even close it off when the weather dictates. This area has also been used as a safe secure area for children over the 40+ years that the current owners have owned it.
Coming off the open plan kitchen and dining, are bi-fold doors onto the rear deck (also with Vergola roof) looks out over the 100+ year old Poinciana trees. Sitting here looking out to the yard, it's very easy to forget you are only walking distance to the Ipswich CBD.
Trivia: Dene Brae featured in the Television series HARROW staring international star Ioan Gruffyd from the Fantastic 4
