“Hudson” once graced the rolling hills of prized fertile farmland in what is today considered one of Brisbane’s most blue chip inner city suburbs.
Built in the late 1880’s by former Albion Hotel publican and grazier Edward Hudson, this iconic residence has been meticulously restored to glory in consultation with highly respected period architect Derek Trebilcock.
Swept straight from the pages of a classic Australian novel, the quintessential wide verandahs detailed with elegant wrought iron lace work are handsomely teamed with full length sash windows and traditional balustrades to deliver a home that is enchanting from the very first view.
The impressive front door opens to a grand central hallway that leads past a gracious library/bedroom and the original large formal dining room and on to a large open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, seamlessly separating the heritage formal rooms from the informal living zones.
Here the superb entertainer’s kitchen, complete with air-conditioned scullery, is equipped with a gas cooktop, Neff oven and steam oven and Macubrus quartz benchtops.
This generously proportioned and light filled main hub of the house features a large wall of windows and French doors, with a green and private view out onto the rear verandah and garden retreat.
The four upstairs bedrooms are all sizeable and enhanced by the magnificent original high ceilings of the home. The master bedroom has a large ensuite and walk in wardrobe in the formal part of the house.
The other three bedrooms are serviced by a further bathroom with beautiful freestanding bath.
Even the current fence is significant, handlaid with bricks recycled from the stables of the original Parliament House.
