Real Estate

when all you need is a home with a subtle flavour

Written by The ReReport

A house of spice is being sold by a lady of fragrance.

LIKE the spice for which it’s named, 19 Saffron Place is low to the ground, loves a good breeze and has a subtle flavour to satisfy a variety of appetites.

The lowset house in an elevated part of Seventeen Mile Rocks.

For 13 years this Seventeen Mile Rocks address in the Edenbrook Estate southwest of Brisbane has been home to perfume manager Elaine Topham and her husband Ian who is a retired engineer.

Do you watch your favourite film in the media room or go outside with a good book?

But its 235sq m of internal floor space could equally suit a young family, or mature family with adult children as bedrooms are at separate sides of the house with living spaces between.

The view from the formal living room, through to the dining area.

Belle Property Sherwood is taking the property to market with offers over $830,000 considered.
“It’s a lowset house but you feel as though you’re on top of the world without the neighbours,’’ Mrs Topham said.
“You’re up high, it’s not a steep block and all you have is trees and nature, your view is from the valley to the mountains at Kenmore.’’


There is a nest of three bedrooms in the front of the house and a small bedroom or study just off the entrance.

All bedrooms have new carpets.

A separate master bedroom wing has a walk-through wardrobe to the ensuite.
The centre and rear of the house is communal space with a formal living room, open plan kitchen and dining area and a media room.
All communal areas have sliding doors to the outside.
In the last year the house has been painted and upgraded with new carpets laid throughout, new blinds, kitchen appliances and a hot water system.

New kitchen appliances complement the open plan living and dining area.

“The way the geography goes, we have neighbours but we don’t see them, one is below us, and the other is a little higher but we have a big rock garden and a fence, and the people at the back are below us so we look over their roof.”
Having said that, neighbours are one of the advantages of living in Saffron Place.
“We have a mixture of all ages here and that is a very big plus, and they are always very community conscious.
“One of the neighbours was sweeping the street of leaves the other day.”
