The Courier-Mail - Property - - REALESTATE MARKET PLACE - CAS­SAN­DRA HOUGHTON

ON A large 954sq m north­fac­ing block, this colo­nial-style res­i­dence of­fers tra­di­tional el­e­gance over two lev­els.

An ar­ray of pe­riod fea­tures in­cludes VJ walls, pol­ished tim­ber floors, or­nate arches and soar­ing ceil­ings, while a suite of for­mal and in­for­mal liv­ing ar­eas flows from in­doors to out­doors.

The house also has five bed­rooms spread across both lev­els for space and pri­vacy.

A veranda with lat­tice­work and white balustrades in­vites en­try into the up­per level of the house. At the front of the floor­plan is a for­mal lounge room with sleek pol­ished floors and dec­o­ra­tive arch­ways.

It leads to a for­mal din­ing room with char­ac­ter fea­tures and a soft neu­tral colour pal­ette.

Oc­cu­py­ing a light-filled space at the rear is a kitchen with a range of qual­ity ap­pli­ances, and ex­ten­sive bench­top space and cab­i­netry.

Case­ment win­dows with rich tim­ber ac­cents pro­vide el­e­vated views of the gar­dens.

The kitchen over­looks a ca­sual fam­ily or meals area with floor-to-ceil­ing glass doors open­ing to a large cov­ered tim­ber deck. This has a peace­ful out­look over the sur­round­ing green­ery.

Also on the up­per level are two bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes.

Com­plet­ing the floor is a cen­tral bath­room.

On the lower level of the house is an open-plan liv­ing area with tiled floors and di­rect ac­cess to an out­door cov­ered pa­tio space or car­port.

Three nearby bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes and are ser­viced by a bath­room.

The lower floor also in­cludes a large of­fice with sep­a­rate out­door ac­cess, as well as a laun­dry and ex­ten­sive stor­age space.

Out­side there are es­tab­lished land­scaped gar­dens en­com­pass­ing flowerbeds, hedges, shrubs, trees and paved path­ways.

The res­i­dence boasts di­rect ac­cess to a park­land re­serve and is also close to Coor­pa­roo’s shop­ping and din­ing precinct.
