Crisp and stylish high­lights

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKETPLACE - Char­lotte Du­rut

BUILT in the 1930s and ren­o­vated with style, this Queens­lan­der on a 607sq m block is light-filled and airy thanks to crisp white tones throughout in­clud­ing white plan­ta­tion shut­ters and high ceil­ings.

Stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, stone bench­tops and pol­ished con­crete floors com­bine well with dark tim­ber high­lights and a bay win­dow to the front of the home.

Large win­dows and slid­ing glass doors also al­low plenty of light into the res­i­dence while a rear deck flows to a large lawn and an in­ground pool.

At the front of the house, a white tim­ber fence opens to a small front yard with es­tab­lished gar­dens and a porch high­light­ing the main en­trance.

A hall­way with pol­ished con­crete floors re­veals in­ter­nal ac­cess to the dou­ble garage and a laun­dry with an out­door dry­ing area and a toi­let.

Ad­ja­cent to the laun­dry is an of­fice with built-in desks and shelves and op­po­site this room is a bed­room with a built-in wardrobe and a two-way en­suite with a shower.

The hall­way widens be­yond these rooms to an open-plan kitchen, din­ing and liv­ing area.

In the kitchen is a break­fast bar and is­land bench com­prised of white stone and of­fer­ing plenty of work space.

There is also white cab­i­netry throughout and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a gas cook­top.

Glass and tim­ber doors in the open-plan space slide open to a cov­ered pa­tio with a cor­ru­gated iron roof and ceil­ing fans which looks to the lawn framed by hedges and the pool with its glass balustrades.

Tim­ber stairs with glass balustrades reach from the open- plan area to the up­per level, where there are four bed­rooms and two bath­rooms.

A fam­ily or liv­ing area with pol­ished tim­ber floors is also at the top of the stair­case and has glass and tim­ber doors which open to a rear deck with views to the back­yard.

Nearby, the main car­peted bed­room also en­joys ac­cess to the deck via glass and tim­ber doors, as well as a walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite with a dou­ble shower.

A bath­room with a sep­a­rate bath­tub and shower and twin van­i­ties ser­vices the ad­di­tional three bed­rooms.

Two of these car­peted rooms have built-in mir­rored wardrobes while the bed­room to the front of the floor­plan boasts a bay win­dow with built-in seat­ing and a walk-in wardrobe.

There is ducted heat­ing and air­con­di­tion­ing throughout the home and a rain­wa­ter tank.
