DAT­ING back to the 1920s, this clas­sic Queens­lan­der has rich char­ac­ter ref­er­ences, in­clud­ing wide tim­ber floor­boards, VJ walls, high ceil­ings and or­nate breeze­ways.

Span­ning two lev­els, there is also an op­por­tu­nity for dual liv­ing, with both floors boast­ing liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen ar­eas.

Be­yond a tra­di­tional fa­cade with a front ve­randa and white balustrades, the cen­tral liv­ing hub sits on the up­per floor.

A for­mal lounge room in the cen­tre of the level has tim­ber floor­ing, walls and ceil­ing, while dec­o­ra­tive fret­work pro­vides a sep­a­ra­tion to the ad­ja­cent din­ing area. Each liv­ing space boasts french doors to a front or rear deck, plus pen­dant light­ing and plenty of nat­u­ral light.

The nearby kitchen has a sep­a­rate en­try point to the deck, while tim­ber floors in honey tones are en­hanced by VJ walls.

Five bed­rooms on the up­per level are ser­viced by a fam­ily bath­room. Look­ing to the front gar­dens is the main bed­room, which has tim­ber floors and walls, a bay win­dow and a walkin wardrobe and dress­ing area.

On the lower level is an open-plan liv­ing and din­ing area with tiled floor­ing and easy ac­cess to a kitchen and a bath­room. A nearby bed­room con­tains a built-in wardrobe.

Out­side, the rear tim­ber deck flows to a lawn area framed by gar­dens. There is also space for four cars, at­tic stor­age and air­con­di­tion­ing.

Close to cafes, park­lands and pub­lic trans­port, this el­e­gant property on 810sq m is about 4km from the CBD.
