Tra­di­tion com­bines with style


THIS dou­ble-gabled Queens­lan­der dates back to the 1930s and com­bines tra­di­tional fea­tures with con­tem­po­rary ad­di­tions.

Orig­i­nal char­ac­ter and charm in­cludes dec­o­ra­tive high ceil­ings, pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing, pic­ture rail­ings and ceil­ing roses.

The south­east-fac­ing front of the res­i­dence has a cov­ered veranda with tim­ber balustrades and lat­tice­work doors.

Tim­ber and glass bi­fold doors lead into an open-plan space fea­tur­ing liv­ing and din­ing rooms, which stretches the length of the res­i­dence, with tim­ber and glass bi­fold doors open­ing to a cov­ered pa­tio at the rear of the prop­erty.

The open-plan de­sign fea­tures pic­ture rails, a dec­o­ra­tive ceil­ing, pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing and ceil­ing fans.

There is also ac­cess from the veranda to the main bed­room, fea­tur­ing a bay win­dow look­ing to the front of the res­i­dence. Other fea­tures in­clude a win­dow seat, ceil­ing fan, pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing, ceil­ing rose and dec­o­ra­tive ceil­ing.

An ad­ja­cent bed­room has a built-in wardrobe and also has views to the front of the res­i­dence.

Lead­ing from the open-plan de­sign is a bed­room, and the sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion is ser­viced by a bath­room boast­ing floor-to-ceil­ing tiles and a sep­a­rate bath­tub and shower.

Look­ing to the rear of the res­i­dence is a kitchen with a ceil­ing rose, pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing and plenty of cup­board and bench space.

The space flows to a laun­dry with out­side ac­cess to the pa­tio, framed by an es­tab­lished gar­den of trees and shrubs.

Other fea­tures of the res­i­dence, set on a 458sq m block, in­clude a two-car garage and neu­tral in­te­rior colour scheme.

The el­e­vated res­i­dence, 5km from Bris­bane CBD, en­joys pic­turesque views over As­cot.

Oriel Park is nearby.
