Renovation enhances appeal
LOCATED only minutes from the CBD, this five-bedroom renovated Queenslander boasts two levels of elegant living.
Built in the 1930s, the stylish home combines traditional features such as VJ walls, french windows and polished timber floors with modern conveniences such as airconditioning and fans.
Occupying a 575sq m northeast-facing position, it presents a charming facade, with a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living areas.
Beyond the main entry, the house opens to the upper level, with a central corridor flowing past a bedroom to the left, featuring a built-in wardrobe and access to an adjoining dualentry bathroom.
An open-plan living and dining area provides a sophisticated use of light and space, with decorative light fittings, a fireplace, study nook and adjacent cloak room leading to the double garage.
Sliding glass doors extend the living and dining areas out to a covered timber deck, complete with ceiling fans, timber balustrades and sweeping city views.
Inside, a kitchen features modern European appliances, Smartstone benchtops, a breakfast bar and pantry, with glass louvres providing additional light and airflow.
A second bedroom is adjacent to the kitchen, with the main bedroom, at the rear of the floorplan, including a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite with shower and private access to the deck.
An internal staircase between the kitchen and bathroom leads down to the lower level, with a family room opening out to a side patio with laundry access.
The family room also opens to a rear covered deck, with stairs leading down to the saltwater pool, sun deck and grassy areas flanking each side of the house.
Two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, are accessed from the family room, with one of these bedrooms including entry to an adjoining bathroom.
A large enclosed storage space completes the layout.
