Charm of a by­gone era

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

BOAST­ING a wrap­around ve­randa and many fea­tures from a by­gone era, this Queens­lan­der has been updated with con­tem­po­rary ad­di­tions.

The charm and char­ac­ter of the 1930s is ev­i­dent with VJ walls, soar­ing ceil­ings, pol­ished tim­ber floors, pic­ture rails and dec­o­ra­tive breeze­ways.

A mod­ern facelift has in­cluded the kitchen to­wards the rear of the floor­plan, which fea­tures sleek white cab­i­netry, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and plenty of stor­age and bench space.

The open-plan de­sign looks to a liv­ing area with ac­cess to the ve­randa and an ad­ja­cent pow­der room.

At the front of the floor­plan, the en­try flows into an open-plan area boast­ing for­mal liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas with ceil­ing fans and sash win­dows.

Also over­look­ing the front of the res­i­dence is the main bed­room fea­tur­ing sash win­dows and a ceil­ing fan.

To the left of the main en­try are three fur­ther bed­rooms ser­viced by a bath­room with twin van­i­ties and a sep­a­rate bath­tub and shower.

The fourth bed­room at the rear of the floor­plan is cur­rently used as an of­fice and also has a ceil­ing fan.

On the ground floor are lots of cov­ered stor­age spa­ces and a laun­dry.

The ve­randa, with tim­ber balustrades, looks to an in­ground pool at the side of the res­i­dence sur­rounded by a pa­tio and framed by trees and shrubs.

Set on a 600sq m block, there is an es­tab­lished gar­den of lawn, trees and shrubs in the front yard.

Nearby are Kalinga, Shaw and Mercer parks with the Shaw Park Tennis Cen­tre within walk­ing dis­tance.
