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

PRE­SENT­ING an ar­ray of tra­di­tional fea­tures such as VJ walls, wide tim­ber floors and high ceil­ings, this Queens­lan­der has a clas­sic twolevel de­sign with warmth and charm.

In­cluded in the floor­plan are four bed­rooms and a suite of for­mal and in­for­mal liv­ing ar­eas, while out­door en­ter­tain­ment spa­ces in­clude a gen­er­ous wrap­around ve­randa and cov­ered ter­race.

Re­cently re­stored and freshly painted, the house sits on a low-main­te­nance 400sq m block with land­scap­ing.

The for­mal en­trance, lo­cated on the front ve­randa, fea­tures a lead­light de­sign. In­side, a for­mal din­ing room on the right has two sets of french doors also pro­vid­ing ve­randa ac­cess. With tim­ber floors in honey tones com­ple­mented by a muted neu­tral colour pal­ette, there is also abun­dant nat­u­ral light.

Ad­ja­cent, the for­mal lounge area con­tains an el­e­gant bay win­dow of­fer­ing views of out­side green­ery. The room also fea­tures pen­dant light­ing and air­con­di­tion­ing.

With con­ve­nient ac­cess to the din­ing room, the light-filled kitchen has an open-plan de­sign and in­cludes sleek gran­ite bench­tops, a range of stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, ex­ten­sive cab­i­netry and an is­land bench. Large win­dows look to the gar­dens. Flow­ing on from the kitchen is an open­plan fam­ily area.

Also on the up­per level of the res­i­dence is a bed­room with car­peted floors, rich tim­ber ac­cents and french doors open­ing to a pri­vate bal­cony.

Com­plet­ing the floor is a cen­tral bath­room.

An in­ter­nal stair­case de­scends to the lower level of the house and three bed­rooms.

Fea­tures of the spa­cious main bed­room in­clude a walkin wardrobe and a wellde­signed en­suite.

An­other bed­room also con­tains a walk-in wardrobe, while the third of­fers a built-in wardrobe. Both are ser­viced by a bath­room on the level.

With am­ple stor­age space and in­ter­nal ac­cess to a sin­gle garage, the house blends tra­di­tional fea­tures such as or­nate breeze­ways, white balustrades and fret­work with mod­ern con­ve­niences.

Fur­ther in­te­rior fea­tures in­clude air­con­di­tion­ing, ceil­ing fans, ducted vac­uum sys­tem and plan­ta­tion-style shut­ters, while out­side the grounds are land­scaped with thick hedges and gar­den beds.

Lo­cated in a tree-lined As­cot street within walk­ing dis­tance to the Race­course Rd shop­ping and din­ing precinct, and Ea­gle Farm race­course, the property is also close to the Bris­bane air­port and about 10km from the CBD.
