Ren­o­va­tion en­hances ap­peal

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

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.

In Auchen­flower, this res­i­dence is close to a va­ri­ety of shops, restau­rants and park­land, in ad­di­tion to lo­cal schools in­clud­ing Stu­ar­tholme, BBC, UQand Rainworth State School.
