Curves in all the right places

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE - HAN­NAH MCDON­ALD

THIS 1928 Art Deco build­ing has been re­stored and ex­tended to of­fer mod­ern liv­ing across three lev­els.

From the street, a white stucco ex­te­rior with splashes of colour cre­ates a vi­brant fa­cade, while in­side the house con­tin­ues to de­liver ex­cep­tional style com­bin­ing old with new.

Ban­is­ters, plas­ter ceil­ings and tim­ber floors have been re­fur­bished, while a tim­ber bal­cony has been at­tached to the build­ing.

Ex­tend­ing out from the main liv­ing space, the bal­cony max­imises city views and mixes con­tem­po­rary de­sign with the sig­na­ture curves and an­gles of Art Deco style.

On the up­per floor of the house is a main bed­room with a walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite, as well as a front read­ing room.

To the rear of the level, a kitchen, liv­ing and din­ing space opens through bi-fold doors to the bal­cony, with the liv­ing area also in­clud­ing an open fire­place and a lift to the lower floors.

At ground level, an en­try foyer in­cludes a stair­case to the up­per level. It also leads to two more bed­rooms, a yel­low and black tiled bath­room, a study nook and a rear liv­ing space.

The liv­ing space, which can also be ac­cessed through dou­ble doors from one of the bed­rooms, in­cludes a kitch­enette.

On the lower level of the house, the lift and a bright or­ange back door open to an en­trance hall.

From here, a laun­dry and dou­ble garage can be reached, as well as a util­ity room, dec­o­rated with ex­posed brick walls and pol­ished con­crete floor­ing, and a bath­room.

Sit­ting on a 270sq m el­e­vated block, the prop­erty has es­tab­lished gar­dens and a northerly as­pect.

Com­ple­ment­ing its pol­ished tim­ber and con­crete floors is a neu­tral colour scheme, cus­tom brass light­ing and tim­ber ve­neered cab­i­nets. The kitchen has an arabescato mar­ble bench top and Miele ap­pli­ances.

Other fea­tures in­clude se­cu­rity screens and stor­age un­der the stair­case, while the lift of­fers full dis­abil­ity ac­cess and the bed­rooms have ei­ther car­pet or tim­ber floor­ing.

The prop­erty is near South Bank and the Mater Hos­pi­tal, with all of the con­ve­niences of city liv­ing in easy reach.
