THIS Chelmer Queens­lan­der re­tains many orig­i­nal fea­tures and presents a ren­o­va­tion project to re­turn the res­i­dence to its for­mer glory.

Tra­di­tional fea­tures in­clude beau­ti­ful pressed me­tal ceil­ings, wide tim­ber floor­ing, lead­light fea­ture win­dows in the en­trance, VJ walls, and a large liv­ing room.

A tim­ber stair­case leads to a large cov­ered ve­randa at the front of the home fea­tur­ing two-rail slat balustrades and lat­tice ve­randa doors.

The for­mal en­try flows into the large liv­ing room through an arch­way with dec­o­ra­tive fret­work, with the main be­d­room to the left.

French doors lead from the main be­d­room to one of two sun­rooms on the south­west­ern side of the res­i­dence. The sun­room also flows to a bathroom with shower.

There are French doors from the liv­ing room to the sec­ond of the sun­rooms on the south­west­ern side of the home.

On the op­po­site side of the res­i­dence, three bed­rooms are fea­tured with two of the bed­rooms lead­ing to the ve­randa through French doors.

A coun­try-style tim­ber kitchen at the rear of the res­i­dence has a gas cook­top, oven and dish­washer.

The kitchen leads to a for­mal din­ing room which looks to the back yard.

Also on the floor­plan is a tiled bathroom with sep­a­rate shower and bath­tub and chil­dren’s re­treat.
