Home retains charm of era
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.
