Such an exciting opportunity and never before has this property been offered for sale.

The four bedroom Chapel Hill residence designed by renowned Queensland architect John Dalton was completed in 1967.
This design is one of Dalton’s finest examples of mid- century architecture and his quest for passive climatic control through orientation, materiality and sub tropical design.
Dalton’s distinctive forms of this era is characterised best from the street elevation, with the crippled roof over the verandah and the split skillion allowing for high level ventilation.
The house nestles into the hillside allowing the 2 story design to engage directly to the courtyards to the north and south.
The upper level comprises of 3 bedrooms, kitchen, living, dining and bathroom/wc. While the lower level houses the 4th bedroom/study, rumpus, laundry and bar.
Internally the high ceilings to the upper story living spaces and bedrooms, with his signature oiled timber rafters and struts, create dramatic living spaces with the play of light and shadow.
While the house has aged naturally, it gracefully sits on 1368sqm site in the prestigious western suburb of Chapel Hill. Its extensive walls of glass sliding doors open the rooms to the surrounding established gardens. The northern verandah opens to the zoned bushland to the rear of the site.

The location is perfect for families of all ages as it falls into the Indooroopilly State School Catchment and Indooroopilly High School catchment plus there is the city and uni buses at the end street.

The private parkland at the rear and the wonderful children’s park in the street makes this a sensational place to live for all types of families.
The charm and tranquillity of 5 Kimba St combined with the proximity to the CBD, Indooroopilly and major arterials to north and south of Brisbane will ensure this is a highly sought-after offering.

Be very swift with this one!
