Classical and traditional
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.
