Cute and modest from the street, this inner-city character property on the border of Paddington and the CBD offers so much more than meets the eye.
A modern extension has deftly transformed what was a traditional cottage and created a contemporary and light filled 5-bedroom residence, with superb living and entertaining areas and a wonderful connection between the home and the garden, large flat lawn and swimming pool.
A vibrant yellow door opens onto the welcoming ground floor entry, where you will find a generous open plan living, dining and kitchen, with soaring ceilings and concrete floors.
Taking centre stage in the kitchen is an extra-long island bench, crafted from vein matched Arabescato marble - not only a striking feature but also perfect for casual meals. In addition there are practical stainless steel benchtops, double ovens, an induction cooktop and gleaming white cabinetry provides an abundance of storage.
Large sliding doors flood this space with natural light and connect with the full width deck, which has been crafted from hardwood timber and allowed to fade to a stylish grey. The deck incorporates a BBQ area and bench seating - then it's just a few steps to the flat lawn and swimming pool. This is a highly sought after layout that's ideal for entertaining and enjoying a coveted indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
Completing this level is a bathroom with an adjoining laundry and a versatile area that's great as a separate zone for kids to study, relax or for watching TV.
Upstairs you will find the accommodation. The Master was created as part of the renovation and it is huge. It boasts a generously sized walk-in robe and a well-appointed ensuite. There are an additional four bedrooms, several with built-in storage and there are split system air conditioning units throughout the home. The main bathroom has been well designed for family usage - it has a shower over bath and there is a separate powder room and vanity area, creating three usable zones. The bedrooms also share a lovely sitting room with a fireplace, creating a cosy living or play area.
The property has off-street car accommodation and it is tucked away in a quiet location, yet is both central and convenient. It's a short stroll to the lovely parks, shops and restaurants of Rosalie Village and Baroona Road; it's close to Milton State School, Suncorp Stadium and bus and rail transportation to the CBD.
This home has a wonderful feel - it respects traditional charm, while also embracing modern styling, and the convenient location allows you to enjoy a vibrant and exciting inner city lifestyle.
