This pretty as a picture and often admired home on a generous 549m2 elevated block in one of Auchenflower's most sought after streets, will both surprise and delight.
Wrap around verandahs frame the house and offer a perfect vantage point to enjoy sweeping views across the local area and to the city. Inside, there are polished timber floors, VJ walls and charming character features.
A large, central lounge and dining room is blessed with an original, brick fireplace, which is both appealing and practical. In the neighbouring kitchen, beautiful timber bench tops create a rich tone and bi-fold windows act as a servery to the rear deck.
It is at the rear of the home, this quintessential Queenslander transforms into an urban oasis. An expansive indoor/outdoor room flows into and is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, creating a calming and tranquil spot. This generously sized and secure space has been designed to be enjoyed in any weather or season. There are fans and shutters to direct the breezes and at one end a lounge and gas fireplace for cosying up on cool evenings. An integrated BBQ area doubles as a second kitchen, with a full gas cooktop, built-in refrigerator, a sink and plenty of bench space and storage.
A path meanders through the garden and leads to a separate, more intimate entertaining area at the back that enjoys an elevated outlook across the property.
There are two bedrooms on the upper level, both with storage and both with French doors opening to the front verandah. The stylish main bathroom has a large shower and vanity with stone benchtops. The laundry has also been updated and it contains plenty of storage and conveniently, a second toilet.
On the lower level, you will find a large room with storage and its own separate entry. This is currently used as an office and lounge, however it could easily be utilised as a generous third bedroom.
There is secure parking, an abundance of storage, air-conditioning and an irrigation system connected to rainwater tanks to help the garden thrive.
The home is in a prime, lifestyle location, just 4km to the CBD. It's a short stroll to Rosalie Village, Milton State School and the popular Frew Park.
