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.
