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

SET amid trop­i­cal land­scaped gar­dens on an 822sq m block, this clas­sic Queens­lan­der has a tran­quil out­look de­spite its close lo­ca­tion to the city.

Orig­i­nal pe­riod fea­tures such as french doors, wide pol­ished floor­boards and bay win­dows add el­e­gance to the property, while mod­ern ad­di­tions cre­ate con­ve­nient fam­ily liv­ing.

Span­ning two lev­els, the well-de­signed floor­plan of­fers for­mal and ca­sual com­mu­nal spa­ces, four bed­rooms and ex­pan­sive out­door en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas.

Upon en­try into the up­per level are a light-filled sun­room and mu­sic room. Be­yond, a spa­cious for­mal lounge area fea­tures cream car­pet floor­ing com­ple­mented by a neu­tral colour pal­ette. Grace­ful pe­riod ref­er­ences in­clude a dec­o­ra­tive breeze­way, pen­dant light­ing, a soar­ing cof­fered ceil­ing and a bay win­dow seat with views of the gar­dens.

Leading from the lounge room is a ca­sual fam­ily area also in­cor­po­rat­ing the kitchen. This el­e­gant open-plan space spans the rear width of the house and has a stylish in­te­rior with honey-toned wide floor­boards, VJ walls, ceil­ing fans and fresh neu­tral colours.

Fur­ther ex­tend­ing the liv­ing space are tim­ber-framed french doors leading to a cov­ered out­door deck.

The mod­ern kitchen oc­cu­pies a light-filled area and con­tains a servery win­dow and a set of french doors to the deck.

There is also a range of qual­ity ap­pli­ances, ex­ten­sive cab­i­netry, stylish pen­dant light­ing and a break­fast bar.

Nearby, and with easy ac­cess to the kitchen, is a for­mal din­ing room.

The main bed­room also sits on the up­per level and boasts built-in wardrobes and a large dress­ing area. A smaller bed­room on the floor has french doors and large win­dows with scenic gar­den views.

Ser­vic­ing the floor is a lav­ish fam­ily bath­room with onyx stone ac­cents and dual van­i­ties.

The rest of the sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion sits on the lower level of the house and of­fers dual-liv­ing po­ten­tial.

An open-plan teenagers’ re­treat or rum­pus area also en­com­passes a kitch­enette, while a cen­tral bath­room ser­vices the floor. Both re­main­ing bed­rooms in­clude built-in wardrobes.

Out­side, the ex­pan­sive rear tim­ber deck flows to an in­ground pool framed by fully ir­ri­gated lush land­scap­ing.

The large block also con­tains a se­cure garage with park­ing space for three cars, as well as a work­shop area and stor­age space.

On a poin­ciana-lined street close to As­cot’s shop­ping and din­ing precinct, additional fea­tures of this charm­ing property in­clude air­con­di­tion­ing and wa­ter tanks.
