Character in abundance
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.
