Em­brace warmth of pe­riod fea­tures

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

FROM its at­trac­tive fa­cade to its tim­ber floors, this three­bed­room post-war house evokes the style of an ear­lier era with a host of pe­riod fea­tures on a 964sq m block.

The en­try steps rise to the front door, which opens into a foyer lead­ing to a hall­way run­ning along the prop­erty’s cen­tral left-to-right axis.

Just along from the foyer on the left-hand side is the kitchen, fea­tur­ing an ar­ray of ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a dish­washer and gas cook­top along­side a walk-in pantry.

On the op­po­site side of the hall­way is the for­mal dining room, floored in pol­ished tim­ber and fea­tur­ing dec­o­ra­tive ceil­ing cor­nic­ing.

The room flows through to the living room at the front of the house, where dou­ble doors open to an out­side cov­ered tiled deck ap­pointed with tim­ber balustrades and lat­tice pan­els.

A large fam­ily room lies down a set of steps ad­ja­cent to the kitchen, with the laun­dry off to the side.

The fam­ily room opens out to the pa­tio, which also fea­tures an in-built bar­be­cue area.

Con­tin­u­ing along the hall­way from the kitchen and dining rooms are the sleep­ing quar­ters, with the main bed­room sit­ting off to one side over­look­ing the yard and fea­tur­ing built-in wardrobes.

At the end of the hall­way is a large bed­room ap­pointed with many win­dows, while a third bed­room, the bath­room and a toi­let are also in this part of the house.

Un­der­neath the house are two garages – one with space for two cars, the other with room for one – along with a large work­shop space.

Ma­ture gar­dens also com­ple­ment the house.

The prop­erty is close to the large Banks St Re­serve, which fea­tures walk­ing and cy­cling pathways, along with bush­land and Enog­gera Creek.
