The moment you enter this magnificently presented property it's obvious this is something special.
This character residence has undergone a thoughtful renovation with an unwavering attention to detail, in a style that is both contemporary and timeless - the result is a superb and spacious inner city 'forever' home that enjoys an ideal aspect and captures great city views.
Upon entry, there's a well-appointed home office, which offers a stylish and convenient base for running a business from home. A central hall leads past a comfortable lounge room to the back of the house, which unfolds to reveal the kitchen, dining and rear deck. This is a fantastic space; generously proportioned, bright and open. Particular attention was paid to the functionality of the kitchen and it boasts an abundance of 2-pac cabinetry, a long and practical breakfast bar and quality appliances including a Smeg induction cooktop and Ilve oven. A traditional fireplace in the dining room is a lovely feature and sympathetic to the home's heritage.
Sliding doors retract to connect the internal spaces with the rear deck where you can enjoy sweeping views across Brisbane, from glorious St Brigid's church in Red Hill to the CBD - the perfect spot to enjoy an evening drink and watch the moon rise!
There are three well-proportioned bedrooms on the upper level, including the Master suite, which has walk-through clothes storage and a stylish ensuite bathroom. The other two bedrooms also have built-ins and they share the main bathroom, which is again beautifully appointed.
On the lower level there is an informal lounge, which opens to a covered deck that flows seamlessly to a flat lawn and the swimming pool - the perfect layout for kids to play, plus a second kitchen on this level makes it also sensational for easy summer entertaining. There is a separate study or 'games' room and an additional two queen-sized bedrooms, both with storage. The bathroom conveniently has a separate powder room.
There is internal access to the double secure parking and laundry facilities, plus loads of storage. In fact, clever storage has been incorporated throughout this home, so there's a place for everything.
This is a spacious and incredibly versatile property. It's ideal for multi-generational living and separate entry on the lower level means this can be rented for an income.
The level of finish throughout is first class. The bedroom windows feature plantation shutters, there is double layer insulation between the levels, minimising noise and while there is air-conditioning on the upper level, it's rarely needed - every window and door in the property is screened for security and insects, so you can capture the breezes with peace of mind.
The location is convenient and highly sought after. It's a short stroll to Rosalie Village, parks and Milton State School and it's also an easy 3km walk to the CBD. There are a variety of transport options within easy reach; numerous bus stops, Milton train station and the city cat terminal.
From the appealing facade, to the superb interiors and beautifully manicured gardens, this really is a wonderful property and an ideal 'forever' home.
