Revamp adds to the allure
BUILT in 1894 and stylishly renovated, this four-bedroom colonial residence boasts two street frontages and proximity to the CBD.
Set on 582sq m, and offering a spacious two-level design, the house has an array of classic details, including sash and stained glass windows, french doors and ornate 3.2m ceilings.
Beyond the white picket fence and charming garden beds, the house presents a traditional and character-filled facade, dominated by timber latticework, wrought-iron balustrades and ornate cornicing.
An external timber staircase ascends to the upper level’s partially enclosed and covered wraparound veranda, flowing through to the entry.
To the right, the main suite includes a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with shower, while french doors open to the front veranda.
Across the hall, and to the left of the entry, a second bedroom includes a built-in wardrobe with additional veranda access via french doors.
Further into the floorplan, the formal dining room features decorative lighting, french doors to the veranda and an ornate ceiling, while the adjacent lounge offers a stylish retreat with doors opening to a covered rear deck.
Towards the rear of the house is the spacious chef’s kitchen, complete with New Guinea Merbau timber, granite benchtops, Miele appliances and a Smeg six-burner gas stove. A combined island bench and breakfast bar adds to the convenience, while a set of french doors extends the space out to the deck.
Offering an ideal venue for outdoor dining and entertaining, the deck has wrought-iron balustrades, latticework and a small bridge leading to the lush green lawn and the second street frontage.
A central bathroom opposite the lounge incorporates a bathtub and separate shower, while an internal staircase nearby leads to the lower level.
Occupying the central space is the media room and kitchenette, complete with bifold doors opening to a covered patio.
Two bedrooms lie off this space, one including a built-in wardrobe and both serviced by a bathroom with shower.
A laundry and double garage complete the level.
Additional property features include ducted airconditioning upstairs, a security system with Crimsafe, Bose outdoor speakers on the rear deck, ceiling fans and a 6000L water tank with automated sprinkler system.
Within a short stroll of the Brisbane CBD, the house is also close to major arterial roads, private and public schools, major hospitals and the South Bank precinct.
