Fresh take on a clas­sic style

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE REALESTATE - EL­IZ­A­BETH REN­NIE

THIS el­e­gantly ren­o­vated Queens­lan­der blends con­tem­po­rary and tra­di­tional el­e­ments across a high-set sin­gle-level de­sign.

Set on an ex­pan­sive 1012sq m, this four-bed­room res­i­dence in­cor­po­rates clas­si­cal fea­tures rang­ing from 12ft ceil­ings with or­nate cor­nices and ceil­ing roses to tra­di­tional dou­ble-hung win­dows and pol­ished tim­ber floors.

A front gar­den, with low­main­te­nance lawns and hedges, gives way to the home’s im­pres­sive fa­cade, with an ex­ter­nal tim­ber stair­case lead­ing up to a sweep­ing front veranda.

This veranda boasts dec­o­ra­tive balustrades and el­e­vated views across the front gar­den and a nearby 13m in­ground lap pool.

Be­yond the main en­try is a cen­tral cor­ri­dor flow­ing through the res­i­dence, with the main bed­room po­si­tioned to the left of the en­try, and a lounge to the right.

The main bed­room in­cor­po­rates a tra­di­tional bay win­dow, along with a walk-in wardrobe, a com­bi­na­tion of car­pet and tim­ber floor­ing, and a ren­o­vated en­suite with a shower and pressed metal walls.

Op­po­site, the lounge fea­tures two bay win­dows – one look­ing to the front and the other to the side – flow­ing through to an ad­join­ing din­ing room, with ac­cess to a side deck.

A door from the din­ing room leads through to the kitchen, of­fer­ing mar­ble bench­tops, a walk-in pantry, qual­ity ap­pli­ances, and a com­bined is­land bench and break­fast bar, with two chan­de­liers bathing the area in a warm glow.

A bay win­dow also fea­tures in the kitchen, with a door open­ing to the cen­tral cor­ri­dor, pro­vid­ing dual en­try.

Two bed­rooms, both with built-in wardrobes, car­peted floors and doors lead­ing to a sec­ond side deck, are po­si­tioned op­po­site the din­ing room and kitchen.

A pow­der room lies be­tween the two rooms.

To­wards the rear of the lay­out is a spa­cious cov­ered deck, com­plete with built-in seat­ing, a bar­be­cue and a wine fridge, with a wall of bi­fold doors open­ing to an in­for­mal fam­ily room.

This fam­ily room flows through to a fourth bed­room at the rear of the lay­out, while also in­clud­ing doors open­ing to the side of the res­i­dence.

A tra­di­tional bath­room, com­plete with claw­foot bath­tub, ser­vices the house, with a laun­dry po­si­tioned ad­ja­cent.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures for this prop­erty in­clude a three-car garage, ducted air­con­di­tion­ing and a se­cu­rity sys­tem.

There is also an un­der­ground wa­ter tank.
