Tra­di­tional meets mod­ern

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

A NORTH-fac­ing large cov­ered ve­randa looks to the back­yard of this ren­o­vated Queens­lan­der.

The tra­di­tional char­ac­ter of the res­i­dence is ev­i­dent with pol­ished tim­ber floors, VJ walls and high ceil­ings.

Con­tem­po­rary fea­tures in­clude re­verse cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing and a mod­ern kitchen.

The rear ve­randa with ceil­ing fans flows through bi-fold tim­ber and glass doors into an open-plan space boast­ing a lounge and din­ing area over­looked by the kitchen.

Fea­tur­ing a servery win­dow to the ve­randa, the kitchen has two-pack cab­i­netry, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and Cae­sarS­tone bench­tops.

Nearby is a bath­room with a re­stored claw­foot bath and com­bined shower and op­po­site is a bed­room.

At the front of the floor­plan, the main bed­room is to the left of the en­try and has car­pet floor­ing and sash win­dows and leads through French doors to a cov­ered ve­randa.

Also flow­ing to the front ve­randa through French doors is a bed­room on the right side of the main en­try with car­pet floor­ing and sash win­dows.

A tim­ber stair­case climbs to the front ve­randa which fea­tures tim­ber balustrades and lat­tice­work to­gether with a lat­tice­work door open­ing to the ve­randa.

The back­yard boasts an es­tab­lished gar­den with lawn, trees and shrubs.

Other fea­tures to the res­i­dence, set on a 405sq m block, in­clude a stor­age area and the po­ten­tial to build-in un­der­neath the up­per main liv­ing level.

The South Bank Park­lands and cul­tural quar­ter are within walk­ing dis­tance with Bris­bane’s CBD less than two kilo­me­tres away.

The din­ing and shop­ping op­por­tu­ni­ties of Bound­ary St and Hard­grave Rd are also nearby.
