Keep a watch over the river

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE - ROYCE WILSON

THIS Fed­er­a­tion-era, charm­packed Queens­lan­der com­mands river views from its po­si­tion on a 913sq m block in Bris­bane’s west.

A brick drive­way leads to the stairs to the front porch, ap­pointed by tim­ber balustrades and dec­o­ra­tive brack­ets on the ve­randa roof sup­ports. The front door leads to an en­trance hall, with the main bed­room im­me­di­ately to the left at the front of the house.

Bay win­dows fea­ture at the far end of the main bed­room, which is ser­viced by a walk­through wardrobe and a large en­suite com­plete with twin basins and dou­ble-sized shower.

The hall­way heads fur­ther along to a study and sep­a­rate for­mal din­ing room, it­self flow­ing through to the for­mal lounge, which oc­cu­pies the front quar­ter of the house.

Both th­ese din­ing and lounge spa­ces open to an out­side ve­randa.

The hall­way passes through to the open-plan kitchen and a sec­ond for­mal din­ing space, open­ing out through two sets of doors to the wrap­around rear deck.

The tra­di­tional coun­try kitchen is mag­nif­i­cently ap­pointed in tim­ber, with tiled bench­tops, an is­land bench and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances.

Lead­light bay win­dows above the sink help il­lu­mi­nate the kitchen, which also fea­tures mod­ern air­con­di­tion­ing and tra­di­tional VJ walls.

The kitchen also of­fers ac­cess to a pow­der room, as well as an out­side ve­randa.

Down­stairs is a large rum­pus room, pro­vid­ing ac­cess to three bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes, as well as the laun­dry, a pow­der room, and bath­room with bath and shower.

The house en­joys a north­east­erly as­pect, with many tra­di­tional Queens­lan­der fea­tures, in­clud­ing VJ walls and lead­light win­dows.

Ducted air­con­di­tion­ing and a se­cu­rity sys­tem have also been in­stalled, and the house is also ser­viced with ramp ac­cess and an ex­ter­nal lift.
