Grand ap­peal of au­then­tic de­sign


THIS orig­i­nal Queens­lan­der of­fers warmth and charm, with an ar­ray of char­ac­ter fea­tures such as pol­ished tim­ber floors, soar­ing ceil­ings, dec­o­ra­tive breeze­ways, lat­tice­work and VJ walls.

Span­ning two lev­els, the floor­plan has nu­mer­ous liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas, in­clud­ing for­mal and in­for­mal rooms and a spa­cious cov­ered veranda with views of Bris­bane city. Po­si­tioned in a quiet leafy street in the heart of New Farm, the house also has four bed­rooms, land­scaped gar­dens and a dou­ble garage.

An ex­ter­nal stair­case as­cends to an up­per level veranda at the front of the prop­erty.

With crisp white balustrades and lat­tice­work, the veranda leads in­side to the main en­trance.

In­side, a hall­way flows to an open-plan space at the rear of the level. This space in­cor­po­rates liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas boast­ing pe­riod fea­tures such as rich pol­ished tim­ber floors, breeze­ways and high ceil­ings. Gal­leries of win­dows of­fer sub­ur­ban views and plenty of nat­u­ral light.

The din­ing area also boasts glass bi­fold doors open­ing to a large veranda.

Span­ning the width of the house, the veranda is cov­ered and of­fers panoramic views of the city sky­line.

Oc­cu­py­ing a light-filled space near the din­ing area is the kitchen. Fea­tures here in­clude qual­ity ap­pli­ances, tim­ber floors and ex­ten­sive tra­di­tion­al­style tim­ber cab­i­netry.

Also on the up­per level are two bed­rooms.

The main bed­room sits at the front of the floor­plan and has built-in wardrobes and french doors open­ing to the veranda. There is also an en­try point to a large bath­room with dual en­trances.

The other bed­room of­fers french doors open­ing to the front veranda.

An in­ter­nal stair­case de­scends to the lower level of the house and a fam­ily room.

Po­si­tioned in the cen­tre, the open-plan space fea­tures tim­ber floors and a fresh neu­tral colour pal­ette.

Two bed­rooms on the lower level have built-in wardrobes and are ser­viced by a bath­room with dual van­i­ties.

One bed­room has di­rect ac­cess to the front gar­dens, while the other has french doors open­ing to a rear court­yard.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures of the res­i­dence in­clude in­ter­nal ac­cess to the garage, air­con­di­tion­ing, or­nate cor­nices and plan­ta­tion-style shut­ters.

The house has a sense of abun­dant space and light, with plenty of large win­dows, french and bi­fold doors, and neu­tral colours.
