Ter­race has en­chant­ing feel


CHARM­ING and stylish, this ter­race property dates back to 1885 and com­bines the char­ac­ter of a by­gone era with a con­tem­po­rary ren­o­va­tion over three lev­els.

The res­i­dence fea­tures 3m ceil­ings, con­tem­po­rary crys­tal chan­de­liers, a cel­lar and two bal­conies.

A mod­ern ren­o­va­tion has added a stylish ap­peal to the property, boast­ing ren­dered bricks.

Vic­to­rian-in­spired metal lace­work frames a ground floor ve­randa at the front of the property. There is also metal lace­work on the up­per level bal­cony, which fea­tures views to the front of the res­i­dence.

The cov­ered ve­randa at the front of the home leads to the main en­try, which opens into a liv­ing room fea­tur­ing pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing, pic­ture rails, high ceil­ings, a crys­tal chan­de­lier and ceil­ing rose.

The liv­ing room flows into a din­ing room, also with pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing and a tim­ber stair­case with tim­ber balustrades ris­ing to the up­per level. The din­ing room also has pic­ture rails, high ceil­ings, a crys­tal chan­de­lier and ceil­ing rose.

Be­yond a laun­dry, which flows into a pow­der room boast­ing cus­tom-built cab­i­netry and a mother of pearl splash­back, the floor­plan leads to a kitchen at the rear of the floor­plan.

In the kitchen are Ger­man­made stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing a steam oven, gas cook­top and ducted range­hood. There is also a bench­top, ceil­ing fan and plenty of stor­age space.

French doors open to a court­yard, with a path leading to the low­est level of the res­i­dence fea­tur­ing a cel­lar.

The court­yard is framed by trees and shrubs.

At the front of the floor­plan on the up­per level is the main bed­room, fea­tur­ing built-in wardrobes, car­pet floor­ing, a ceil­ing rose, pic­ture rails and french doors open­ing to a cov­ered bal­cony stretch­ing the width of the ter­race property.

There is also an en­suite with a shower and mar­ble floor­ing.

Look­ing to the rear of the property is a bed­room with built-in wardrobes, ceil­ing fan, car­pet floor­ing and ac­cess to a smaller cov­ered Juliet bal­cony with views to the Bris­bane CBD sky­line.

Also on this level is a bath­room with a com­bined spa bath­tub and shower.

Other fea­tures of the res­i­dence, which is set on a stun­ning 157sq m block, in­clude im­ported wall­pa­per, hand­crafted light fit­tings, cur­tains with clas­sic pat­terns and rare fabrics, dou­ble-hung win­dows, air­con­di­tion­ing, an alarm sys­tem and a sin­gle-car garage.
