Lush green haven


SET off a tree-lined street, fea­tur­ing city and moun­tain views, this in­ner north­ern Bris­bane prop­erty of­fers all the charms of a tra­di­tional Queens­lan­der but with the added ben­e­fits of mod­ern styling in­clu­sions.

Spa­cious deck and pa­tio ar­eas – in­clud­ing a pri­vate back­yard oa­sis with rain­for­est feel and walk bridge – are also stand­outs on this 604sq m site, less than 5km from the CBD.

Be­hind a homely white picket fence, tim­ber balustrades frame a tra­di­tional stair and ve­randa en­try, where enough space is pro­vided for sit­ting chairs of­fer­ing leafy front gar­den and street views.

Inside the house, pol­ished tim­ber floors link a hall­way to a main bed­room, which comes with a built-in wardrobe, en­suite and out­looks to the lawns be­low.

A sec­ond bed­room with built-in wardrobe is next to this space, be­fore a ren­o­vated bath­room acts as a buf­fer to a third bed­room, where ac­cess to a rear deck is gained.

Com­plet­ing the up­per level of the prop­erty’s in­ter­nal spa­ces are liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen spa­ces, con­structed around an open plan, pro­vid­ing a spa­cious feel.

Tim­ber floors and cabi­netry, pale green VJ walls, and white ceil­ings stand out in the cen­tral liv­ing ar­eas, while the kitchen fea­tures stone bench­tops, stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances and an is­land bench.

Through bi-fold doors, ex­ter­nal and in­ter­nal spa­ces meet at this part of the prop­erty, with a cov­ered deck wrap­ping around the rear of the house, pro­vid­ing out­door din­ing and sit­ting ar­eas show­cas­ing city out­looks.

An in­ter­nal stair­well from the kitchen ar­rives at two lower level bed­rooms, each fea­tur­ing a built-in wardrobe, while there are also an of­fice, laun­dry and bath­room.

A tiled rum­pus area at the rear of the house and a side car­port lead to a paved ground floor porch that looks across the back­yard and pro­vides ac­cess to an ad­di­tional net­work of paths.

One of th­ese leads to a walk bridge that is sur­rounded by an oa­sis of gar­dens and trees and in­cludes a paved sit­ting area.
