Capras House – Circa 1889

5 Dublin Street, YERONGA


Deeply immersed within the very foundation of Brisbane’s architectural history, this circa 1889’s Heritage listed Colonial echoes of a bygone era; whilst still affording all the modern luxuries one would expect from a high-end residence. Beautifully amalgamating the best of both worlds, the home has been meticulously renovated to showcase the wonderful period features which have stood the test of time. A picturesque scene unfolds from the moment you arrive with manicured and established gardens including box pivot hedging sitting behind a classic white picket fence, inviting you up the brick path to the ornate wrap-around front verandah. Hardwood decking, double rail and dowel balustrades, curved valance archway brackets and a beautiful faceted bay projection roof section all lend themselves to the beauty of its Victorian era. Stepping through the four-panel front door with leadlight surrounds, you are welcomed home with original period features. Soaring beaded pine panelling draws the eye up to the picture rails and intricate cornicing, while a large Georgian archway leads the way through to the formal dining and living areas beyond. Ornate ceiling roses grace the 3.6m high horse-hair plaster ceilings, whilst beautiful, polished hoop-pine flooring run underfoot. The formal living also features a cast-iron fireplace with cedar surround and double-hung cedar windows. These versatile rooms can be used as an open plan space or segregated as needed thanks to a pair of over-sized cedar bi-fold doors original to the house.

Offering an abundance of living space, a separate informal family living room is situated alongside a timeless white kitchen. With 2-pac soft-close cabinetry, breakfast bar, marble bench tops and quality stainless-steel appliances including NEFF oven, custom-made Blanco range-hood and four-panel gas and induction cooktop, the modern design also features a kitchen ‘office’ with purpose-built cabinetry for your devices, along with copious amounts of storage hidden behind fold-away panels. For ease of entertaining, the kitchen is afforded close access to the expansive rear covered deck. Overlooking a sparkling in-ground saltwater pool with separate shaded spa and a child and pet friendly lawn, the south-facing deck is the place where you will spend much of your time. A pool house (which is believed to have been the properties original stables) is also situated alongside the pool and provides an additional multi-purpose space.

Positioned off the entry of the home, the master suite is afforded direct access to the front verandah through French doors and features a fitted walk-in robe and federation tessellated tiled ensuite. Completed with a frame-less shower, the heritage-style bathroom also incorporates a marble top dual vanity with his and hers pine inlet cabinets and old English tap ware. The second and third bedrooms situated on the eastern side of the home also open onto the front and side verandahs through their own set of French doors; while bedrooms four and five are housed at the rear of the home and feature walk-in robes. With floor to ceiling tiles, the main bathroom offers a frame-less shower and large bathtub. Fantastic for guests, this wing also features a separate toilet and powder room. Ideal for working from home, the property also provides two separate studies with one on each level and a walk-through library.

A double remote lock-up garage, expansive under house storage, laundry (connected by a laundry chute from the upstairs hallway) and additional powder room situated within close-proximity to the pool complete the property. With immense charm and high-end fittings and finishes throughout you will be proud to make this your new much loved family home!
