Classic with a modern twist
ON THE market for the first time in 70 years, this Queenslander combines the character of yesteryear with plenty of modern comforts.
Sitting on 10,117sq m of usable acreage, the fourbedroom residence with a pastel teal exterior has been extended and renovated over the past few years, with all updates keeping in line with its 100-year heritage.
Wide, wraparound verandas frame the house and look out to mature climbing trees, established gardens and a saltwater pool, while timber floors and windows, fretwork, french doors and 10ft ceilings with ceiling roses decorate the single level interior.
On entry, a central hallway leads past three bedrooms, all with access through double doors to the veranda, and a bathroom before arriving at the hub of the home, the new stone kitchen with stainless steel appliances.
Opposite the kitchen a carpeted lounge room with fireplace also opens through double doors to the veranda, along with a covered patio space.
Adjoining the kitchen is a dining room and next to it is a family room opening to both outdoor areas and bordering a laundry, powder room, linen cupboard and the main bedroom.
Privately positioned away from the other bedrooms, the main bedroom includes a walkin wardrobe and an ensuite, along with veranda access.
While a neutral colour scheme and timber floors decorate the main living spaces, the bedrooms are carpeted and coloured in cheerful shades.
To the rear of the house, a mature poinciana tree creates a shady inviting retreat, while a four-bay garage offers a separate driveway and yard.
Other features of the residence include airconditioning, water tanks, two more parking spaces and fenced dog yards and paddocks.
