‘Jorupa’ A Graceful Sanctuary in the Heart of Clayfield

Fall under the spell of ‘Jorupa’. In almost a century, this magnificent property has only been offered for sale twice before. You’ll soon see why. This historic, rendered-brick home is a tranquil oasis in the heart of prestigious Clayfield.

Set proudly on an extensive 1042sqm of land, with beautiful established gardens and clear views of Moreton Bay and beyond, this treasured four-bedroom family home provides elegance and comfort in equal measure.

Designed by Henry Atkinson (of Conrad Gargett), it was built for the Tristram family in 1926. But ‘Jorupa’ is far from being a gloomy museum piece: it is a light-filled home in excellent condition, ideal for a modern family.

There are multiple large living areas, including a completely private covered terrace in the rear garden, plus a substantial fully-secure balcony area. The spacious kitchen, which adjoins both casual dining and living areas, features two ovens, excellent storage (including a large pantry), gas and electric hotplates. The ground floor has ducted air-conditioning throughout.

Take in the gorgeous breezes on the deep front verandah, which is easily large enough for entertaining guests. In winter, relax by the open fire as you look out across Clayfield towards the bay. All the superb architectural finishes that made this home notable across the decades have been meticulously maintained. The impressive entrance hall features timber-panelled walls, magnificent ornate plasterwork adorns the ceilings, all in superb condition, and original crow’s ash wooden flooring enriches many areas.

The main bedroom, located on the ground floor, has its own private balcony; an ideal spot to take in the morning sun. Upstairs, there are three further bedrooms, all exceedingly spacious and airy.

Craven Street is one of Clayfield’s most desirable addresses. ‘Jorupa’ shares this quiet, tree-lined street with other distinguished prestige homes. Within easy walking distance of St. Rita’s College, and situated in the Ascot State School catchment area, this street offers the very best in refined living.

History has shown that when a family comes to ‘Jorupa’, they stay. Come and see why.
