KENILWORTH HOUSE

Kenilworth House (circa 1922) is the oldest surviving house in the village of Kenilworth. It’s located right in the middle of the village, in the commercial zone.

Built in the Art Deco period, the 1920’s style house has been used for many things over the years ... a family home, a Boarding House, Bed & Breakfast accommodation. However, the last few years has seen the biggest transformation. The house itself is now a shining example of its era, while the garden setting, created in just 4 years, will rival any long- established garden.

The front stairs lead to a wide, L-shaped enclosed veranda – now an excellent casual living room. The large windows on the outside give plenty of light while the inside walls have the original casement windows and French doors to connect the casual area to the more formal lounge/dining room. This formal room displays all the charm of the 1920’s Art Deco style, plus modern touches such as air conditioning and slow combustion heating. The kitchen was designed, and constructed in stainless steel, as a commercial kitchen and features a free-standing 5-burner gas stove with a wide oven.

With a Boarding House and B & B in its history, it has a lot of bedroom accommodation. The main bedroom has a great bay-window & en- suite, while the other 3 upstairs bedrooms share the main bathroom and a small sitting room with external access. Casement windows and French doors are a feature here and right through the house.

Then there’s downstairs ... the living area on the lower level is open plan and includes kitchen & laundry facilities, a bathroom and 4 possible bedrooms. Current use is split between bedroom, crafts and storage. The coolest area on the property is a semi-enclosed casual living area under the house. The garden, with a fountain and garden cottage (looks much older that its 2 years) as its core, also has a secret garden, an archway and a shade house. It will only mature from here!

The double carport that takes its access from Phillip St, has a built-in shipping container. Great as a man-shed or workshop.

Kenilworth is set on the banks of the Mary River, close to the forest and National Parks. It’s on the tourist loop with Maleny, Mapleton and Montville. 23 Elizabeth St is right in the centre of the village, on the tourist strip, with commercial zoning. Kenilworth is under half an hour from Eumundi where you can go straight through to the coast at Noosa or join the freeway, on your way to anywhere.
