Seam­less blend of clas­sic and mod­ern

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

EX­TEN­SIVELY ren­o­vated, with a seam­less blend of con­tem­po­rary and clas­sic fea­tures, this five-bed­room Queens­lan­der epitomises un­der­stated el­e­gance.

Lo­cated just 5km from the CBD, it is on 655sq m and is close to a va­ri­ety of ameni­ties, in­clud­ing lo­cal schools, restaurants, shops and pub­lic trans­port op­tions.

Pe­riod de­tails are dom­i­nant through­out the two-level de­sign, with pol­ished tim­ber floors, dec­o­ra­tive ceil­ings, or­nate fret­work and lead­light ac­cents fur­ther com­ple­ment­ing the re­fur­bished in­te­rior.

An im­pres­sive fa­cade is framed by a white picket fence, with a dou­ble garage and gate­house flow­ing through to the ground level’s main en­try.

A front deck, par­tially en­closed by tim­ber balustrades and lat­tice­work, has a ceil­ing fan and a tim­ber stair­case as­cend­ing to a sec­ond deck on the up­per level.

It also pro­vides ac­cess to an ad­ja­cent and car­peted lounge room, which in turn flows through french doors to a sep­a­rate, for­mal din­ing area.

Be­yond the main en­try is a bed­room to the left, com­plete with built-in wardrobes and an en­suite. A sec­ond bed­room also in­cludes a built-in wardrobe and ac­cesses an ad­ja­cent bath­room.

Tak­ing cen­tre stage is a stylish kitchen, of­fer­ing a large is­land bench, ex­ten­sive white cab­i­netry, stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, and glass and tim­ber bi­fold doors open­ing to a cov­ered pa­tio.

This pa­tio ad­joins a court­yard, flow­ing along one side of the property past the din­ing and liv­ing rooms. It also flows to a large rear, tim­ber deck, com­plete with a built-in spa, ceil­ing fans and out­door kitchen, pro­vid­ing an ideal venue for out­door din­ing and en­ter­tain­ing.

There is also a stair­case leading to the up­per level’s ve­randa, as well as ac­cess to a sin­gle-car garage and shed from the land­scaped rear pa­tio and back­yard.

A study and laun­dry com­plete the level.

On the up­per level, the main suite in­cludes a walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite with twin van­i­ties, a spa bath and bi­fold glass and tim­ber win­dows open­ing to the rear ve­randa.

Of­fer­ing views across the cityscape, this ve­randa leads through a wall of glass and tim­ber bi­fold doors to a sleek open-plan liv­ing room and kitchen.

Two more bed­rooms in­clude built-in wardrobes and are ser­viced by a bath­room with shower, with one also open­ing to a front deck.

A din­ing room and lounge are also fea­tured, with the lounge ad­di­tion­ally flow­ing through to the front deck via bi­fold doors.

This property fur­ther has out­door blinds, screens, air­con­di­tion­ing and so­lar power.
