About the property

A great base for a Brisbane holiday, Brookfield Cottage is superbly located on Royston St, a prestigious ridge road that is one of the best addresses in Brookfield, an inner city acreage suburb just 20 minutes from the city center.

Set in private and extensive acreage gardens, Brookfield Cottage is a newly renovated bungalow style house built in the 1960s with 3 bedrooms with one spacious bathroom with separate shower and bath. The ground floor level is the main living area of the house with living, dining and kitchen areas flowing onto the extensive deck The super large main bedroom with a queen sized bed and also single bed and also the second bedroom with a double bed and bathroom are also on this level.

The house was built in underneath some years ago and this lower level is a little rustic but has a spacious third bedroom that relies on the bathroom upstairs and a tiny single bedroom with a trundle single suitable for children.

Timber floors were newly sanded and polished in July 2016. Quality rugs and artworks are a feature of the house with an open plan kitchen and living area being an effective design. The living and dining rooms open onto an extensive and very wide L shaped high set deck with fabulous rural views. The deck is perfect for relaxed entertaining or just for relaxing with a book. The well appointed living room has a new 50 inch Sharp LED 3 D TV and DVD player with an Apple TV with access to a NETFLIX and STAN.

The living room has an older split system air conditioner and overhead fans. The main bedroom has a queen bed and also a single bed suitable for a child. It also has an overhead fan. The main bedroom queen bed has a Cloud Gen 2" down topper for extra comfort. The main bedroom mattress and double bed ensemble are top of the range Sealys just installed early 2016.

Both ground level bedrooms enjoy great views. The third double bedroom downstairs has a queen sized bed and garden views.

The kitchen/ laundry is equipped with a range of new equipment including a Eurovox ceramic cooktop, refrigerator, a new Panasonic microwave and brand new front loader washing machine and sensor dryer. This is capped off with a new Miele electronic dishwasher and a Nespresso coffee machine. Cooking options are enhanced by the large outdoor barbeque just outside the kitchen on the veranda.

There is ample parking on site for vehicles and trailers and under cover parking for 3 cars. Horses are also accommodated by arrangement. Dogs are welcome on the large contained L shaped veranda upstairs with stairs going down to an undercover area outside the downstairs bedrooms and a fenced garden area. There is an extensive unfenced garden area.

It is just a five minute drive down Rafting Ground Road to Kenmore with its shopping villages, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques and supermarkets. Express buses run half hourly from Kenmore to the city center. Turn left on Rafting Ground Road and you are soon at the idyllic Brookfield Showground with its General Store and great little brasserie with wood fired pizzas and great coffee and lunches. A little further along is Bundaleer for wedding receptions, so Brookfield Cottage is well located accommodation for wedding guests. The well reviewed Wild Canary at the nearby Brookfield Garden Centre is another excellent choice for brunch or lunch.

A super base to explore Brisbane from with the city just a 20 minute drive away. It is a quiet retreat for country style relaxing. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Westfield Shoppingcentre are just a short 10 minute drive away.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you and your associates again in the future. We hope you have a safe trip home to South Africa. We are regularly adding new features to the house. Most recently this has included a brand new top of the range Sealy mattress in the main bedroom and a new top Sealy double ensemble in the second bedroom. A newer barbeque is now situated just outside the kitchen door. We have also done some enhancements to the downstairs queen bedroom. We also now have live streaming of Netflix and Stan with our free wifi and internet access.

Bird calls and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely few days at Jacaranda House - beautiful, peaceful location, yet close to everything you need. The house was lovely with fantastic verandas and great mod cons.. Waking up to bird calls instead of traffic can't be underestimated!

Location++ generally ok but must improve amenities

  • 4 of 5

No microwave, oven burned food, BBQ all rusted, not enough toilet paper and dishwasher tablets. Could also use a portable clothes airer. Difficult going without for stays of 5 nights or so, as we did. We intend to come back next year but these issues need to be addressed first.

Owner's Response: I was a little surprised by your feedback. We have consistently had excellent feedback for the house and give high priority to the needs and comfort of our guests. Your only complaint about cleanliness is about the older trolley barbeque downstairs that is in fine working order and is clean. Yes, it is an older unit but it works well. We provide starter toilet paper and dishwasher tablets and apologize if there were not enough for your needs. In fact there is usually a bulk pack of toilet paper on the top shelf in the hallway cupboard but you may not have discovered that. We usually provide a reasonable number of dishwasher tablets and apologize if the number was not enough for you. We find that most of our guests do a bit of a supermarket shop during their stay. It is hard to predict guest needs in this regard. Our manager lives just down the road and was only a telephone call away and would have been happy to top up these supplies. I am not sure what you mean by a portable clothes airer. We have a new clothes dryer and also a bit of a clothes line under the house. There are ample cupboards in the bedrooms for the airing of clothes. I am personally not a microwave person and the house is not described as having one but will take your feedback on board and look to installing one in the near future. There is no obvious problem with the oven but we will continue to monitor its operation.

Lovely Xmas Break

  • 5 of 5

My parents, their two dogs and grandmother stayed here over Xmas due to other arrangements falling through. The house was wonderfully located in a peaceful oasis but still close enough to the shops and city. We saw wild deer and were greeted everyday by a beautiful horse at the fence. The house was well appointed. The only suggestion would be to replace the BBQ as it is extremely old and rusted. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again! Thanks Ulla.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. As another guest also did not like the barbeque we will be replacing it.

Lovely house, beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family catch-up and stay at Jacaranda House. The house itself is spacious and comfortable with a beautiful wide deck overlooking the extensive grounds. Lots of birdsong in the mornings, and being on a ridge the deck catches all available breezes. Thanks very much Ulla, for making it so amenable. We hope to return soon.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay in this house when we stayed for a week while visiting relatives in Brisbane. Lovely quiet location. Well appointed with excellent appliances - including a coffee maker! Near to shops, restaurants, Mt Cootha etc. Plenty of space to relax - indoors and out.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ruth. We have now added to the comfort of the experience with " the Cloud Gen 2" down mattress toppers installed on both the queen and double beds.
