Jessica Rudd lists Brisbane home

Jessica Rudd has put this five bedroom Brisbane home on a 1227sq m block up for sale by private treaty.

Jessica Rudd, daughter of former prime minister Kevin Rudd and one of Queensland’s richest women Therese Rein, has put her Brisbane home on the market.

The five bedroom, four bathroom property sits on a sprawling 1227sq m block in family friendly suburb Chelmer.

Even the garden has character.

She and Albert Yeuk Kuk Tse had previously owned a Fairfield property that they’d bought for $1.07m after returning from a five-year stint in China.

Ms Rudd’s former Fairfield home.

The property was sold for $1.19m in March 2017 – four months after buying the Chelmer home for $2.18m.

Mr Tse retains ownership of a two bedroom Norman Park apartment bought for $332,000 in 2006, according to CoreLogic records.

Mr Tse’s Norman Park unit has a listed rental price of $450 a week.

Ms Rudd’s stunning property – which is being marketed as “heritage character meets modern luxury” – comes amid a flood of interstate interest in Brisbane as a place to relocate to and as her business savvy mother readjusts her Noosa property portfolio.

From the pool you can see the main home and the separate guest accommodation.

Agent Ann-Karyn Fraser of Place New Farm has the home listed on as having “a magnificent in-ground swimming pool, Insta-worthy interiors, a separate self-contained studio and incredible entertainment options”.

The double storey home was “reconfigured by interior design studio Rylo Co and has restored original timber floors, high ceilings, leadlight windows, VJ walls, plantation shutters and a timber staircase.

The restoration makes for a grand entrance.

The backyard was said to epitomise “the Queensland dream: a fully-fenced backyard, which is as much about the little one as it is the older residents”.

Cleverly designed outdoor rooms offer something for all ages.

“Children on scooters circuit the flat pavers hugging the house or maybe bring the bat and ball onto the artificially-turfed cricket pitch, while grown-ups relax in front of the outdoor fireplace.”

Flat pavers surround the home.

Summer entertaining is made easy with this flow from the home to the outdoors.

The separate self-contained apartment had Airbnb potential or could be used as a nanny’s quarters, separate office space, granny flat or teen retreat.

The separate self-contained apartment has loads of potential.

The property is located “a stone’s throw from the coveted dining and shopping of the Honour Avenue precinct” and “a blissful dog-walk from the Sherwood Arboretum”.
