THIS early 1900s-style Queens­lan­der has been com­pletely trans­formed with a Hamp­tons-in­spired ren­o­va­tion.

Sit­ting on a 607sq m block, the res­i­dence boasts open-plan liv­ing and a back deck over­look­ing an in-ground pool and a spa­cious es­tab­lished yard.

On en­try up a front stair­case and through a small cov­ered porch, a fam­ily room con­nects to two front bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the main with a walkin wardrobe fea­tur­ing be­spoke cab­i­netry, an en­suite with Ital­ian floor-to-ceil­ing traver­tine tiles and twin van­i­ties, and dou­ble doors to the porch.

From the lounge, a hall­way leads past an­other bed­room and a bath­room with a sep­a­rate bath­tub be­fore open­ing to an open-plan kitchen, liv­ing and din­ing space at the rear of the floor.

Stone bench­tops, a splash­back and pen­dant light­ing fea­ture in the cook­ing space, along with a but­ler’s pantry that clev­erly con­ceals a laun­dry.

Two more bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes sit to the left of the liv­ing and din­ing space, while floor-to-ceil­ing glass bi­fold doors open to the cov­ered back deck.

Span­ning the width of the house, the tim­ber deck fea­tures a ceil­ing fan and pro­vides ac­cess via two sets of stairs to the pool and gar­den be­low.

A neu­tral colour scheme, VJ pan­elling and 3.5m ceil­ings dec­o­rate the house, with re­stored and pol­ished tim­ber floors fea­tur­ing through­out and plenty of nat­u­ral light fil­ter­ing through the dif­fer­ent liv­ing spa­ces.

From the street, the res­i­dence has charm­ing ap­peal, with an es­tab­lished front gar­den and a path­way lead­ing to the porch set be­hind a white picket fence.

To the right of the fence is a triple-car garage, while ad­di­tional off-street park­ing is avail­able for a fur­ther three cars.

From the garage, dou­ble doors open to the lower level of the house where am­ple stor­age space, a laun­dry and bath­room are lo­cated.

Other fea­tures of the res­i­dence in­clude ducted re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing and ceil­ing fans.
