Clas­sic with a mod­ern twist

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

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.
