Clas­si­cal and tra­di­tional

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKETPLACE - Char­lotte Du­rut

A RARE find in Bris­bane’s sub­urbs is Wee­don, a 1920s Queens­lan­der set on a mas­sive 1619sq m block and pre­sent­ing all the clas­si­cal tra­di­tions of the era.

The fa­cade of the home sees a red cor­ru­gated iron roof set above a par­tially en­closed, wrap­around ve­randa with an en­try gable.

Within the res­i­dence, pas­tel pink and cream tones fea­ture throughout along with French doors, VJ walls, 12 foot ceil­ings, dou­ble hung win­dows with lead­light and coloured glass, and decor- ative breeze­ways and arch­ways.

Car­pet throughout the home cov­ers pine floor­boards and views to the city sky­line can be en­joyed from the ve­randa.

Tim­ber but­ter­fly stairs reach to the ve­randa which has lat­tice­work doors open­ing to the home’s main en­trance.

A main bed­room to one side of the hall­way in­cludes ac­cess to the side ve­randa via French doors and op­po­site the main bed­room are two bed­rooms which also en­joy ac­cess to the ve­randa.

This area of the ve­randa in­cludes a bath­room with a shower.

The hall­way leads to a for­mal liv­ing room with two French doors open­ing to the side ve­randa and be­yond this room is a long, nar­row din­ing room with stairs be­yond lead­ing to the rear lawn with its many ma­ture trees.

Lead­ing from the din­ing room is the kitchen and ca­sual meals area which fea­tures orig­i­nal tim­ber cab­i­netry as well as a walk-in pantry.

Flow­ing from the kitchen is a sec­ond bath­room with a com­bined bath­tub and shower.

The home in­cludes air­con­di­tion­ing and a 5000-litre rain­wa­ter tank.
