This beautifully presented character home creates a grand and imposing presence in one of Brisbane's most sought after and desirable inner-city locations.
A comprehensive renovation has created a spacious and timelessly elegant retreat that remains faithful to its 1920's Queenslander heritage. It is bright and open, with two levels of living and the all-important indoor/outdoor connection.
An L-shaped verandah envelops the upper level and provides a vantage point to enjoy picturesque views across the neighbouring area. This level of the home has stylish formal and informal spaces, anchored by the kitchen at the rear, which is bound to impress. It has stone benchtops including a huge island bench, a 900mm stainless cooker and plenty of storage. Servery windows and bi-fold doors provide access to the large back deck, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor, while allowing living and entertaining to seamlessly flow outside. This is the quintessential appeal of the Queenslander.
There are two bedrooms on the upper level, including the master, which has a walk-through wardrobe and an ensuite with twin vanities. Both bedrooms have French doors accessing the verandah; great for airflow, while also creating a lovely aesthetic. There is also a study, which has doubled as a nursery and the main bathroom that boasts a clawfoot bath, a separate shower and a chute to the laundry.
On the lower level, a very generously sized rumpus offers a casual living space that is just perfect for family living. Bi-fold doors open onto the deck and the cleverly designed swimming pool that incorporates a 10-metre lap lane, while the backyard and flat lawn is great for kids to play or to indulge a green thumb. It's easy to imagine entertaining a crowd a here, or just relaxing and enjoying family time.
There are an additional two Queen size bedrooms on this level, both with built-in cupboards. Special attention was paid to storage when this home was renovated and there is an abundance of options. There is also a large bathroom and separate laundry. The home is fully air-conditioned and it has 4kw of solar to help keep electricity bills low. There is also covered parking for three vehicles.
It is in an outstanding lifestyle location - just a short stroll to Rosalie Village, great parks and Milton State School and significantly this home did not flood in 2011. There is easy access to bus and train transport and the CBD is just 3km away.
This is a beautifully appointed home, that's rich with charm and is bound to appeal to a range of buyers.
