Sprawl­ing city block

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKETPLACE - Stephen Nadin

SET on a large 10,130sq m block at Chan­dler is a sprawl­ing two-level res­i­dence and a sep­a­rate self-con­tained cot­tage.

The set­ting of­fers a peace­ful ru­ral life­style with the Bris­bane CBD 15 kilo­me­tres away.

Gal­leries of win­dows and slid­ing doors open up the main res­i­dence to nat­u­ral light and cool­ing northerly breezes.

The lower level of the main home, built in the 1990s, fea­tures an open-plan de­sign flow­ing to a pa­tio wrap­ping around two sides of the res­i­dence.

Boast­ing tim­ber cab­i­netry, the kitchen has a servery win­dow to the pa­tio, break­fast bar and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

A tiled floor flows to the din­ing room, fam­ily room and lounge, while slid­ing glass doors open from the fam­ily room and lounge to the pa­tio.

A wet bar also over­looks the open-plan de­sign.

The floor­plan on this level in­cludes a be­d­room, laun­dry and bathroom with shower.

On the up­per level, a cov­ered ve­randa wraps around two sides of the prop­erty with three bed­rooms fea­tur­ing built-in wardrobes, car­pet and ceil­ing fans flow­ing through slid­ing glass doors to the out­door area.

They are ser­viced by a bathroom with a sep­a­rate bath­tub and shower. A rum­pus area is ad­ja­cent.

The main be­d­room, which leads to a sep­a­rate cov­ered ve­randa over­look­ing the front of the res­i­dence, has a walk-in wardrobe and en­suite with spa bath and sep­a­rate shower.

Other fea­tures in­clude ducted vac­uum sys­tem, air­con­di­tion­ing, and se­cu­rity.

Nearby is an in­ground salt­wa­ter pool with spa and water­fall-fea­ture.

The sep­a­rate cot­tage is newly ren­o­vated and boasts three bed­rooms and a bathroom with shower.

The kitchen has pol­ished tim­ber floors with a din­ing room ad­ja­cent. The liv­ing room flows out to a cov­ered deck. The cot­tage also fea­tures a laun­dry. A five-bay shed was re­cently in­stalled and in­cludes three-phase power and an en­gi­neered floor for heavy ma­chin­ery. There is also room for mul­ti­ple ve­hi­cles.
