Char­ac­ter and charm to boot

A CLAS­SIC de­sign and tra­di­tional pe­riod fea­tures are the defin­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics of this orig­i­nal Queens­lan­der.

Built in 1925, and set on 664sq m across two lots, this el­e­vated three-bed­room res­i­dence en­joys 33m of frontage and a north­ern as­pect.

Through­out the de­sign are pol­ished tim­ber floors, VJ walls and high ceil­ings, while bay win­dows and stained glass em­bel­lish­ments fur­ther en­hance the ap­peal.

The clas­sic fa­cade is com­plete with fenc­ing and es­tab­lished hedges for pri­vacy, while an ex­ter­nal stair­case as­cends to the en­try.

To the right, the main bed­room in­cludes an or­nate bay win­dow and a walk-in wardrobe. A sun­room to the left also boasts a bay win­dow with stained glass de­tail­ing.

Two more bed­rooms are nearby, with the en­tire sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion ser­viced by a cen­tral bath­room.

An open-plan for­mal lounge and din­ing area is a stylish high­light, fea­tur­ing french doors, dec­o­ra­tive tim­ber arch­ways and or­nate ceil­ing work.

There are also pol­ished tim­ber floor­boards and stained­glass em­bel­lished win­dows.

The ad­ja­cent orig­i­nal kitchen in­cludes cab­i­netry and built-in stor­age, while a study com­pletes the lay­out.

Be­neath the house, which is at the le­gal height, there is plenty of stor­age space.

Additional fea­tures of the property in­clude a three-car garage, land­scaped gar­dens and an alarm sys­tem.

It is also close to pub­lic trans­port op­tions, in­clud­ing the bus, ferry and Ci­tyCat, as well as hos­pi­tals, schools and park­land.
