NOTH­ING is as quintessen­tially ‘‘old Bris­bane’’ as a grand Queens­lan­der with a ma­jes­tic More­ton Bay Fig in the yard.

Turn back the clock at War­wick a mag­nif­i­cent two-storey Bar­don res­i­dence set on a sprawl­ing 1309sq m.

This grand six-bed­room, four­bath­room home of­fers a host of tra­di­tional fea­tures and well-blended mod­ern ad­di­tions.

Lat­tice tim­ber gates and a high white picket fence frame the prop­erty, with the More­ton Bay Fig, com­plete with tyre swing, a dom­i­nant fea­ture of the front yard.

The home’s tim­ber stairs lead up the first storey to a wrap­around ve­randa en­cas­ing three quar­ters of the res­i­dence.

A lead­light framed door beck­ons en­try onto the pol­ished tim­ber floors un­der soar­ing ceil­ings while VJs and chan­de­liers abound.

On this level is the main bed­room, which fea­ture an en­suite and walk-in wardrobe.

The kitchen en­joys Miele ap­pli­ances, mar­ble bench­tops with lots of cupboards on dis­play and there’s also a lit­tle kitchen nook that boasts built-in tim­ber seats and space for a ta­ble.

The open-plan liv­ing area con­sists of three large liv­ing ar­eas with four sets of French doors that open onto the ve­randa en­com­pass­ing a ro­tunda used for en­ter­tain­ing.

Down­stairs there’s an­other large rum­pus room that would be per­fect as a teenager’s re­treat with three more bed­rooms.

This space opens pool­side and there are stairs to the pool pavil­ion boast­ing a kitchen, bar­be­cue and al­fresco din­ing.

Sur­rounded by pri­vate gar­dens, this Bar­don res­i­dence is in a pres­ti­gious po­si­tion.
