Keep a watch over the river
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.
