BATWING lat­tice ve­randa doors in­di­cate the his­tory and her­itage of this Padding­ton Queens­lan­der from the 1890s.

In­side, a con­tem­po­rary ren­o­va­tion has melded with the orig­i­nal char­ac­ter.

French doors open into the main be­d­room boast­ing a walk-in wardrobe and en­suite with shower. Other fea­tures in­clude plan­ta­tion shut­ters and a re­stored or­nate fire­place with tim­ber sur­rounds.

Op­po­site is a for­mal liv­ing room, also with a re­stored or­nate fire­place, and French doors which open to the wrap­around ve­randa.

At the rear of the floor­plan is an open-plan kitchen look­ing to the din­ing and liv­ing rooms.

Boast­ing an is­land bench with break­fast bar, the kitchen fea­tures Co­rian bench­tops and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

A wall of bi-fold glass doors with tim­ber frames open to a cov­ered ve­randa with dowel three rail balustrades over­look­ing the back yard and with views to­wards Mt Coot­tha and Gov­ern­ment House.
