BE­YOND a white picket fence lies a charm­ing two-storey Queens­lan­der, set amid es­tab­lished green­ery on 607sq m.

Con­ve­niently po­si­tioned within walk­ing dis­tance of Race­course Road and Port­side, this three-bed­room res­i­dence boasts a spa­cious de­sign with po­ten­tial for fur­ther ren­o­va­tion.

Colo­nial fea­tures are re­tained through­out, in­clud­ing VJ walls, orig­i­nal case­ment win­dows, high ceil­ings and pol­ished tim­ber floors, while ad­di­tions such as air­con­di­tion­ing add to the ap­peal.

From the hedge-framed front lawn, a tim­ber stair­case as­cends through swing doors to a cov­ered ve­randa on the up­per level.

Over­look­ing the front gar­dens and sub­ur­ban sur­rounds, the ve­randa pro­vides a wel­com­ing venue for out­door re­lax­ation, while also of­fer­ing mul­ti­ple en­try points to the in­te­rior.

The stained-glass em­bel­lished front door opens to a cen­tral cor­ri­dor, lead­ing past the sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion to lounge, dining and kitchen ar­eas at the rear of the floor­plan.

Neu­tral tones, tim­ber floors and dec­o­ra­tive arch­ways are fea­tured in th­ese rooms, with the kitchen in­clud­ing a com­bined is­land bench and break­fast bar, a re­cessed wall for the cook­top and built-in cab­i­netry.

Doors open from the dining room and kitchen to a large cov­ered deck, com­plete with light­ing, space for out­door dining and views across the lush backyard.

Set at the front of the house, the main bed­room has french door ac­cess to the front ve­randa, as well as a large walkin wardrobe flow­ing through to an ad­join­ing sun­room. A sec­ond bed­room near the en­try opens to the ve­randa, while the third also leads through to the sun­room.

The fam­ily bath­room in­cludes a stand-alone claw­foot bath­tub with a shower over­head, a tim­ber van­ity and tim­ber shut­ters.

Down­stairs has a spa­cious garage, laun­dry and stor­age area.
