THIS re­stored tra­di­tional Queens­lan­der has been up­dated and mod­ernised, fur­ther cap­i­tal­is­ing on its lo­ca­tion in one of Bris­bane’s de­sir­able leafy sub­urbs, on a tree-lined street close to the Ea­gle Farm Race­course.

Plenty of street ap­peal is ap­par­ent, with ac­cess from the foot­path to the house as­cend­ing via stairs to a spa­cious out­side ter­race fenced in glass.

The prop­erty’s lower level is given over to dining, living and en­ter­tain­ing spa­ces. The main en­trance, ac­cessed via the ter­race, opens to a spa­cious foyer by the in­ter­nal stair­ways.

This leads to a large open­plan space that takes up much of the level and in­cludes the kitchen, fam­ily room, dining room and living area.

The mod­ern kitchen is well ap­pointed, with the black cab­i­netry of the stone-topped is­land bench con­trast­ing with the white cab­i­netry fea­tured in the rest of the cooking space.

Stain­less-steel Miele ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing a cof­fee ma­chine and a wall oven, fea­ture in the kitchen, along with a gas cook­top, range­hood and industrial-chic stain­lesssteel down­lights.

Be­hind the kitchen area is the com­bined laun­dry and scullery, along with a bath­room and study or guest bed­room with built-in wardrobe.

Stacker doors open from the open-plan space to a par­tially cov­ered tiled ter­race, which ad­joins the large in-ground pool, fenced in glass.

Adding to the en­ter­tain­ment op­tions, the living area also has a wet bar, in­clud­ing a sep­a­rate wine fridge and drinks fridge.

In­ter­nal stairs with white balustrades near the foyer as­cend to the up­per level, which houses the sleep­ing quar­ters.

To the right of the up­stairs land­ing is a sun room or study, fea­tur­ing large win­dows.

Fin­ished in the white theme that fea­tures through­out the house, the main bed­room of­fers bay win­dows, a chan­de­lier-style light fit­ting and tim­ber shut­ters.

A large walk-through wardrobe con­nects the bed­room with the en­suite, which fea­tures twin basins as well as a shower.

A left turn at the top of the stairs leads down a hall­way past a bed­room or po­ten­tial fam­ily room to the bath­room, which is fit­ted with twin basins, as well as a large bath.

The hall­way then takes a turn be­fore lead­ing to the two re­main­ing bed­rooms on this level, ser­viced by walk-in wardrobes.

The prop­erty – which boasts a stylish and mod­ern in­te­rior de­sign – also in­cludes a four-car garage, a ducted vac­uum sys­tem and an alarm sys­tem.

Other draw­cards in­clude ducted air­con­di­tion­ing and es­tab­lished gar­dens served by ir­ri­ga­tion.
