Panoramic views from hill

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

BEAU­TI­FULLY ren­o­vated, this in­ter-war Queens­lan­der is high on Wil­ston Hill and en­joys 180-de­gree panoramic views to­wards the east and Bris­bane’s CBD sky­line.

Liv­ing is spread over two lev­els with an im­pres­sive de­sign and style ex­tend­ing through the res­i­dence.

Tra­di­tional fea­tures in­clud­ing three me­tre high ceil­ings, lead­light win­dows, VJ walls, wide pol­ished tim­bers floors and stained glass win­dows com­bine well with the con­tem­po­rary ren­o­va­tions.

A cov­ered porch leads into an en­try room and lounge at the front of the floor­plan with ad­ja­cent stair­case to the lower level.

The lounge flows to an of­fice over­look­ing the front yard. The of­fice is also ac­cessed from the main be­d­room fea­tur­ing a walk-in wardrobe, and en­suite with floor-to-ceil­ing traver­tine tiles and shower with rain­wa­ter shower head.

In the other di­rec­tion, the lounge flows through an arch­way with dec­o­ra­tive tim­ber fret­work to a din­ing room. French doors open from the din­ing room to an L-shaped cov­ered ve­randa which over­looks the back yard.

At the rear of the floor­plan, the kitchen boasts stone bench­tops, a walk-in pantry and servery win­dow to the ve­randa where the city and east­erly views can be ap­pre­ci­ated.

Bi-fold doors lead from a nearby meals area to the ve­randa.

Also on this level are two bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes with the be­d­room at the rear flow­ing through French doors to the ve­randa and a bathroom with bath­tub and shower.

On the lower level, French doors open from a fam­ily room with wet bar and tiled floors to a cov­ered wrap­around sand­stone ve­randa.

At the front of the floor­plan, two bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes and are ser­viced by a bathroom with shower with a laun­dry ad­ja­cent.

In the back yard is an in­ground salt­wa­ter pool with water fea­ture and os­cil­lat­ing coloured lights, pool pav­il­ion and es­tab­lished gar­dens with lawn and shrubs.

A white tim­ber fence is at the front of the block with a gate­house fea­tur­ing tim­ber lat­tice­work.
