RE­STORED to its orig­i­nal grandeur, this Fed­er­a­tion Queens­lan­der is in a tran­quil part of Ash­grove with man­i­cured hedges and a quaint ve­randa.

The home was one of the first houses built in the sub­urb in the early 1900s and re­tains tra­di­tional fea­tures of the pe­riod such as high ceil­ings, VJ walls, fret­work, and an­tique lead­light win­dows.

The top level houses the main liv­ing and sleep­ing ar­eas in­clud­ing three bed­rooms and the for­mal liv­ing rooms.

Bor­dered by a wall of ver­ti­cal shut­ter win­dows, the din­ing area is open plan, with the ren­o­vated kitchen boast­ing Euro­pean ap­pli­ances and a tiled splash­back.

The home’s for­mal lounge room flows to a sun­room study with French doors and shut­ters.

A spacious deck over­looks the land­scaped back yard, so­lar-heated pool and pavil­ion.

The main bed­room fea­tures an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, as well as a pri­vate deck and par­ents’ re­treat.

The other two bed­rooms on this level of­fer built-in wardrobes, with one room large enough to house two beds.

These rooms are ser­viced by the main bath­room which has a sep­a­rate powder room and stor­age.

Down­stairs is the fourth bed­room, a third bath­room and a multi-pur­pose room that opens to a paved Sandstone court­yard.

There is also a laun­dry, open­ing to the dou­ble car­port, and an en­closed stor­age space un­der­neath the home.

Other fea­tures in­clude ducted air­con­di­tion­ing, two rain­wa­ter tanks with 16,000-litre ca­pac­ity, and easy ac­cess to lo­cal schools, shops and pub­lic trans­port.
