Beautiful outlook through the trees, a timber deck and a lovely yard make it terrific for kids, pets and groups. With a separate study area, three spacious bedrooms and lots of other spaces its good for business travellers, groups of singles and couples. You can entertain here in comfort (events and parties by arrangement).
Lone Pine Lodge is located in the leafy suburb of Ashgrove 10 minutes by car from Brisbane's CBD or 20 minutes by bus located just outside the door. This beautiful Old Queenslander is tastefully decorated with original art works hanging on pale grey walls of the 3 bedrooms and lounge room.
As with all Queenslander homes, the three oversized bedrooms comprises of a master bedroom with queen size bed and ensuite, a second bedroom with both a double and bunk beds and a third bedroom with a queen and a single bed. Large wardrobes with hanging space and shelves in all bed rooms have plenty of space for either a short or long term stay and the bedrooms are air-conditioned.
The red leather couch sits in front of a TV that has Foxtel Platinum available providing both movies and music. The separate full size kitchen has beautiful views of the city at night and is fully equipped with European oven and gas cook top along with a microwave and family size fridge. A full size dining table seating 8 for both you and any visitors you may decide to entertain during your stay also has access on to our timber deck with seating looking through the trees, close enough to touch and into the yard. The bathroom and toilet are in separate rooms with the bathroom having both a shower and a bath along with an oversized basin.
We welcome pets by agreement and there is a fully fenced section of the garden available for your exclusive use and where your pets can be safely contained.
Facilities for kids include a foldaway bed, porta cot and a high chair all available by arrangement. There is a swing set, chickens to discover and the garden is fully fenced and secure - it’s a very kid-friendly environment. Please feel free to chat about any specific requirements - we're happy to help.
If things are going to be busy for you or you would just like that extra bit of relaxation and time off from normal life, we offer breakfast baskets and evening meals by arrangement. The 'Man of the house' was a chef in a former life so we are happy to chat with you about what you would like.
As we live next door now we have a great fondness for the house as our original family home, please be aware that the laughter of 7-year-old twins may pervade the air during the day; along with a occasional bark from Beni the family dog (a small cavoodle). Our tree- shrouded garden is also home to 4 chickens and if you take up a seat in our family hammock are a truly calming thing to behold as they wander around the yard.
This house was our family home for ten years. Renovated 5 years ago this 1940's Queenslander was the original homestead when the area was just rolling hills filled with dairy cattle. Perched on the top of a hill the afternoon breezes are wonderful in what is now one of Brisbane's most sought after areas for real estate. This home now consists of the original Timber Queenslander beautifully renovated with all the modern conveniences on the top floor; and on the ground floor is a separate modern two-bedroom self-contained apartment. (see Lone Pine Retreat)
Guests have sole use of the entire Original 1940's Queenslander (upstairs) and a half of the garden area for themselves and their guests. This area is located at the top of a set of stairs leading on to the timber balcony and the front door.
As your hosts we now live in the house just behind our original home and are more than happy to offer whatever assistance you may require, including an afternoon drink and some nibbles if you wish. We have helped mind children overnight while mum and dad were off giving birth to the newest addition and helped with household goods on loan to guests when their furniture has been delayed in transit. Bottom line is we will help if we can.
We are happy to consider family gatherings and events; taking into consideration the interests of other residents and neighbours. If you are looking for somewhere for a special purpose please get in touch and lets discuss it!
