Enor­mous sense of char­ac­ter

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE REALESTATE - CAS­SAN­DRA HOUGHTON

THIS Queens­lan­der blends clas­sic pe­riod ar­chi­tec­ture with mod­ern en­hance­ments across its sin­gle-level floor­plan.

Char­ac­ter fea­tures are prom­i­nent through­out the house and in­clude pol­ished tim­ber floors, french doors, or­nate light­ing fixtures, lat­tice­work and soar­ing ceil­ings. The res­i­dence also has con­tem­po­rary open-plan liv­ing spa­ces with mod­ern fit­tings.

With four bed­rooms and two tim­ber decks, there is plenty of space to live and en­ter­tain.

A for­mal lounge room is at the en­trance. With tim­ber floors and high ceil­ings, the room also has french doors open­ing to a front wrap­around cov­ered veranda.

Be­yond the lounge room sits a vast open-plan space in­cor­po­rat­ing liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas. They have pol­ished tim­ber floors, soar­ing ceil­ings, VJ walls and a fire­place, while nu­mer­ous large char­ac­ter win­dows pro­vide a light-filled in­te­rior and gar­den views.

Th­ese liv­ing spa­ces also boast or­nate light­ing fixtures and built-in stor­age space.

Oc­cu­py­ing a bright open­plan space ad­ja­cent to the din­ing area is the kitchen.

Its fea­tures in­clude a range of Miele ap­pli­ances, a but­ler’s pantry, ex­ten­sive cab­i­netry, stone bench­tops and an is­land break­fast bar. The kitchen also has a sep­a­rate en­try point to the rear deck.

This of­fers an im­pres­sive out­door space with tim­ber floors, a cathe­dral-style roof, crisp white balustrades and steps to the gar­dens.

Also with di­rect ac­cess to the deck is the main bed­room. It has a bay win­dow look­ing to the gar­dens, car­pet, high ceil­ings, a walk-in wardrobe and en­suite.

Three other bed­rooms lie to­wards the front of the floor­plan. All in­clude built-in wardrobes and pol­ished tim­ber floors, and are ser­viced by a cen­tral bath­room.

Out­side, there are both front and rear grassed lawns, with ma­ture green hedges and land­scap­ing. There is also an in­ground pool with an ad­ja­cent pavil­ion.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures of the res­i­dence in­clude ceil­ing fans, air­con­di­tion­ing, plenty of stor­age space, a dou­ble car­port and gar­den shed.

Sit­ting on a sprawl­ing 1131sq mblock close to the river, cafes, shops and the train sta­tion, the res­i­dence is about 8km from Bris­bane city.
