Original style adds elegance
SET amid tropical landscaped gardens on an 822sq m block, this classic Queenslander has a tranquil outlook despite its close location to the city.
Original period features such as french doors, wide polished floorboards and bay windows add elegance to the property, while modern additions create convenient family living.
Spanning two levels, the well-designed floorplan offers formal and casual communal spaces, four bedrooms and expansive outdoor entertainment areas.
Upon entry into the upper level are a light-filled sunroom and music room. Beyond, a spacious formal lounge area features cream carpet flooring complemented by a neutral colour palette. Graceful period references include a decorative breezeway, pendant lighting, a soaring coffered ceiling and a bay window seat with views of the gardens.
Leading from the lounge room is a casual family area also incorporating the kitchen. This elegant open-plan space spans the rear width of the house and has a stylish interior with honey-toned wide floorboards, VJ walls, ceiling fans and fresh neutral colours.
Further extending the living space are timber-framed french doors leading to a covered outdoor deck.
The modern kitchen occupies a light-filled area and contains a servery window and a set of french doors to the deck.
There is also a range of quality appliances, extensive cabinetry, stylish pendant lighting and a breakfast bar.
Nearby, and with easy access to the kitchen, is a formal dining room.
The main bedroom also sits on the upper level and boasts built-in wardrobes and a large dressing area. A smaller bedroom on the floor has french doors and large windows with scenic garden views.
Servicing the floor is a lavish family bathroom with onyx stone accents and dual vanities.
The rest of the sleeping accommodation sits on the lower level of the house and offers dual-living potential.
An open-plan teenagers’ retreat or rumpus area also encompasses a kitchenette, while a central bathroom services the floor. Both remaining bedrooms include built-in wardrobes.
Outside, the expansive rear timber deck flows to an inground pool framed by fully irrigated lush landscaping.
The large block also contains a secure garage with parking space for three cars, as well as a workshop area and storage space.
On a poinciana-lined street close to Ascot’s shopping and dining precinct, additional features of this charming property include airconditioning and water tanks.
