Plenty of Padding­ton ap­peal

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKETPLACE - Rachel Espiner

RE­STORED to an im­mac­u­late stan­dard, this clas­sic Queens­lan­der of­fers spa­cious liv­ing in an en­vi­able in­ner city subur­ban lo­ca­tion.

Set on a gen­er­ous 792sq m block and sur­rounded by man­i­cured gar­dens and es­tab­lished trees, the res­i­dence taste­fully blends mod­ern con­ve­niences and tra­di­tional charm.

With a cen­tral open-plan de­sign and a seam­less flow be­tween in­door and out­door liv­ing ar­eas, this home ticks all the boxes for fam­ily liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing.

En­try to the home opens to a vast liv­ing area.

Neu­tral tones and dark pol­ished tim­ber floors cre­ate a light-filled in­te­rior that ex­udes style and space.

A large fam­ily room leads from the main en­trance and flows to a me­dia room which opens to a large wrap­around tim­ber-decked ve­randa.

The liv­ing area then ex­tends to an open-plan kitchen and din­ing area and be­yond to a sec­ond or for­mal liv­ing space.

Orig­i­nal char­ac­ter and charm is ev­i­dent throughout with VJ walls, high ceil­ings and French doors.

The ve­randa ex­tends the length of the house pro­vid­ing cov­ered out­door liv­ing and din­ing op­tions with ac­cess via both liv­ing ar­eas. It over­looks the swim­ming pool and gar­dens be­low. Tim­ber steps ex­tend down to a path which leads to the pool framed by stylish man­i­cured hedges.

Inside, the kitchen oozes style and form. It boasts a com­bined is­land and break­fast bar with stone bench­tops, ex­ten­sive cab­i­netry, dou­ble sink and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a gas cook­top.

The main bed­room is at the rear of the floor­plan. It is gen­er­ous in size and boasts a walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite with twin van­i­ties and a sep­a­rate shower and bath­tub.

Nearby are three bed­rooms all with built-in wardrobes. A cen­tral bath­room also with a shower and sep­a­rate bath­tub ser­vices these rooms.

While en­joy­ing a leafy subur­ban set­ting, this ex­pan­sive home is just a few kilo­me­tres from Bris­bane’s CBD.
