The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE - STEPHEN NADIN

A LIGHT-FILLED, spa­cious en­vi­ron­ment is fea­tured in this ren­o­vated Queens­lan­der.

Dat­ing back to 1914, the property is on a large 1045sq m block and melds orig­i­nal charm and char­ac­ter with a mod­ern facelift and ex­ten­sion.

The flow be­tween in­door and out­door liv­ing op­tions was at the fore­front of the de­sign, with all liv­ing ar­eas open­ing to the out­doors.

A cov­ered ve­randa with tim­ber balustrades is at the front of the res­i­dence, with the main en­try leading into a lounge room with a pol­ished tim­ber floor and fire­place.

On the left is the main bed­room, with views to the front of the res­i­dence and a walk-in wardrobe leading to an en­suite fea­tur­ing a shower.

The lounge room leads to­wards an ante room at the rear of the floor­plan and fea­tures french doors open­ing to a cov­ered deck and views to the back­yard.

Nearby are a study nook and stor­age area, with the floor­plan flow­ing into an open-plan kitchen and liv­ing area boast­ing cathe­dral ceil­ings.

French doors open to the ve­randa at the front of the res­i­dence and a deck with views to the rear of the property.

The kitchen in­cludes Co­rian bench­tops, a Leib­herr side-by­side in­te­grated fridge freezer and a Zug oven, steam oven and in­duc­tion cook­top.

To the left of the ante room, a hall­way leads be­yond a study with views to the rear of the property and into a two-level wing fea­tur­ing the ma­jor­ity of the sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion.

On the ground level is a con­ser­va­tory fea­tur­ing views to the front of the res­i­dence and an in­ground salt­wa­ter pool.

Nearby are a laun­dry, a bath­room with a sep­a­rate shower and bath, and bed­room with built-in wardrobes.

The up­per level has two bed­rooms, each with built-in wardrobes, a desk and car­pet floor­ing.

Un­der­neath the main liv­ing level is a two-car garage and stor­age space.

Other fea­tures in the res­i­dence, 3km from Bris­bane’s CBD, in­clude ducted air­con­di­tion­ing and a neu­tral in­te­rior colour scheme.

The property has es­tab­lished gar­dens with trees and shrubs, en­hanced by an au­to­matic sprin­kling sys­tem to the front of rear. There are also three wa­ter tanks, each with a 3000L ca­pac­ity.
