Built in the heady days of the 1920s, stately Sailly Lorette has long been known as one of the grand old dames of Bulimba, its elegant proportions & stunning period features making it as much a well-known landmark as a well-loved family home.

Not only does it boast such esteemed heritage, but an incredible position right in Bulimba's vibrant heart, with enviable views across the Brisbane River to Newstead, Teneriffe & the City.

Raised & built-in under in 2003, the home now offers 2 sprawling levels of living, with all modern conveniences downstairs & the stunning original rooms on the upper floor. As such, the house is able to boast 5 bedrooms in total as well as 3 complete bathrooms.

Two of the bedrooms are on the lower level which both share a family bathroom. There is also an expansive media/family room here that has access to the salt-water pool through timber French doors. Though this is a modern addition, great care has been taken to make sure this level remains in keeping with the rest of the property. As such, the same high ceilings & grand proportions have been used throughout, as has a continuation of the same high quality of finishes & fittings.

As part of the original home, the upper level offers truly stunning period features including soaring paneled ceilings, a marble foyer, VJ walls complete with picture rails, gloriously art deco light fixtures & the traditional beauty of the original lead light windows.

These features are best portrayed in the formal suite of rooms which occupies the very heart of this home. Here, formal dining & living rooms have been separated by a set of French doors, though remain unified through the timeless beauty of their timber paneled walls, prolific period features and, the stunning wide timber floor boards rarely seen outside a home of this vintage.

These rooms also enjoy views right across the river to the city beyond with additional sets of French doors leading directly onto the deep wraparound verandah. This design also allows for cooling breezes to filter through straight off the water.

Directly adjacent is the casual living area which provides room for a lounge & dining space all overlooking the pool. Being able to open out directly onto a deck as well as boasting a wall of windows bedecked with plantation shutters really lends the room a casual elegance so fitting of this stately home.

Meticulous in its presentation, the kitchen is truly a stunning feature of the property with reclaimed Silky Oak cabinetry & bench tops, providing a nostalgic link to the past, while at the same time delivering superior aesthetics & functionality. This style is further enhanced by the under mounted country-style sink, gold-plated fixtures & an enviable 900mm ILVE stove, while generous proportions & French doors opening directly out to the rear deck make food preparation an absolute joy.

There are a further 3 bedrooms on this level as well as the main family bathroom complete with its original claw foot bath. Situated at the front of the home, the master suite enjoys superior views across the city, and boasts its own ensuite & WIR.

Outside, the generous 851sqm block is completely low maintenance, with the rear of the home occupied by the pool & sandstone-paved entertainment area, while the front has been landscaped across two terraces.

Other features include a double lock-up garage, air-conditioning, water tanks, retractable screens, crimsafe, security, gas BBQ points & ample storage.

Named after a small French town caught in the battle of the Somme, this estate has played host to the likes of General McArthur & Dame Nellie Melba, and is now for sale offering all of its history to a new owner. Not only does it boast all this esteemed heritage, but also an enviable locale with the exciting community vibe of Oxford St.
