The South Pacific countries of Australia and New Zealand brings to mind peaceful trade winds, flawless sunny days, and pounding surf, along with world-class cities and resorts. Our Sotheby’s international luxury home of the week comes from Brisbane, a wonderful city in Queensland, Australia, a timeless estate passed down from one generation to the next over four families, with marquis finishes and amenities that would make any Aussie proud.
23 Killara Avenue is known affectionately as “Ruhamah”, meaning love, mercy and compassion. This home is a unique Edwardian gem which has had just four owners in its 110-year lifetime. The 6 BR, 7 BA luxury home sits on over an acre of premium land. The current owners have been there for 26 years, and have lovingly restored the estate to create an exclusive haven of luxury in the tightly-held luxury neighborhood of Hamilton Hill.
Beyond the abundant classic timber French doors and windows, to the sprawling verandahs are the most magnificent gardens, an expense of manicured hedges, topiaries, lush planting, championship tennis court and terraces all crowned by mighty Poinciana trees giving a magical sense of privacy and seclusion. A true sanctuary unrivalled and unforgettable!23 Killara Property Showcase
