RE­CENTLY ren­o­vated, Brae­side Villa oc­cu­pies two lev­els on a 483sq m block en­joy­ing hill­top views of the CBD.

Com­bin­ing a tra­di­tional ap­pear­ance with strik­ing mod­ern de­sign, the prop­erty has four bed­rooms as well as two sep­a­rate liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas.

Tra­di­tional fea­tures in­clud­ing high ceil­ings and fret­work breeze­ways are still found up­stairs.

The main en­trance is on the up­per level, with cast iron balustrades ap­point­ing the front ve­randa.

The front door opens to a hall­way lead­ing to the sit­ting room. On the left of the front en­trance is a bed­room, while on the right is the main bed­room with a walk-through wardrobe to the en­suite, which has a frame­less glass shower.

A brick fire­place fea­tures promi­nently in the tim­ber­floored sit­ting room of the res­i­dence, be­hind which is a mod­ern bath­room and stairs down to the large open-plan lounge, din­ing and kitchen area tak­ing up the re­main­der of the level.

An is­land mar­ble bench fea­tures in the kitchen, along with tim­ber cab­i­netry, and a but­ler’s pantry with sink.

There are also qual­ity stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

Fea­ture light­ing il­lu­mi­nates the bench, while pol­ished tim­ber floors add to the ap­peal of the space.

Bi-fold doors open to the rear bal­cony and stairs in the lounge de­scend to the lower level, ar­riv­ing at an open-plan liv­ing and din­ing area with a kitch­enette.

To one side is ac­cess to two bed­rooms, both with en­suites equipped with show­ers.

Slid­ing doors in the din­ing area and third bed­room open to the rear deck. Also on the level is the laun­dry, along with ac­cess to the prop­erty’s two-car garage and stor­age area.

Mt Coot-tha, the Sir Thomas Bris­bane Plan­e­tar­ium and The Wes­ley Hospi­tal are nearby.
