Restored and revived
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.
