With 941sq m of land and ex­pan­sive views of Bris­bane’s CBD high rises, this ren­o­vated fourbed­room Queens­lan­der of­fers an in­ner-city fam­ily plenty of room to move.

Sit­ting high on hilly Miskin Street, Toowong, the 1930s abode has been up­dated with con­sid­er­a­tion paid to the orig­i­nal in­tegrity of the gra­cious in­te­rior with tim­ber floors, pic­ture rails, VJ walls and fret­work all fea­tur­ing through­out.

Mul­ti­ple spots for out­door liv­ing in­clude a pri­vate court­yard, front ve­randa and a huge north­east fac­ing en­ter­tainer’s deck set against a stun­ning back­drop of 180-de­gree city and sub­ur­ban views.

A meals area is ser­viced by an im­pres­sive kitchen with thick gran­ite benches, white cab­i­netry and a stain­less steel oven/gas cook top.

There is sep­a­rate space for more for­mal en­ter­tain­ing in the din­ing area and liv­ing room, a cosy spot to spend win­ter nights with its open fire­place.

Stay­ing on the up­per level there is a spa­cious main bed­room with french doors to the deck that show­cases the city lights, as well as a mar­ble en­suite.

Down­stairs there is an ad­di­tional level of liv­ing with two built-in bed­rooms, a study, sec­ond bath­room with sunken bath, con­cealed laun­dry and a ver­sa­tile rum­pus/teen re­treat.

This level leads to an un­der­cover en­ter­tain­ment area and a level lawn with es­tab­lished gar­dens.

Other fea­tures in­clude white plan­ta­tion shut­ters, ducted re­verse cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing, back to base se­cu­rity sys­tem and a work­shop/ stor­age shed.

The home re­sides in one of the most well-ser­viced ar­eas of Bris­bane, close to good schools, Toowong shop­ping precinct, and bus and rail trans­port.
