Don't be deceived by the charming and quaint exterior of this impeccably presented Queenslander cottage. It opens to reveal a surprisingly spacious home, with two levels of living and multiple entertaining areas, perfectly catering for a busy family lifestyle.
The upper level is bright and open, with the kitchen, living and dining rooms perfectly positioned at the rear. This is a beautiful and welcoming space; large double-hung windows capture light and offer a picturesque outlook onto the substantial backyard and inviting swimming pool.
The kitchen has plenty of storage including a walk-in pantry and stone benchtops. French doors open onto a covered deck, for when you want to take entertaining outside.
There are four good-sized bedrooms on the upper level. The Master has an ensuite, while the other rooms access the main bathroom. The home has been recently painted inside and out and there is new carpet and new cabinetry, which is both fresh and practical. The home also has ducted air-conditioning and fans throughout.
Downstairs, a rumpus or TV room is great for kids to socialise and it opens onto the covered back deck where a built-in BBQ area with sink and fridge makes entertaining easy.
There is a fifth bedroom or study downstairs that has been put to great use in working-from-home. The home has lots of clever storage, including a wine cellar under the stairs and a brand new laundry makes doing the washing less of a chore. There is a powder room and internal access to the secure garage, with parking for two vehicles and loads of storage room.
The house is well positioned on the block, creating a very generous backyard, with plenty of room for children or pets to play. The property has no rear neighbours and impressive, established hedges create a private sanctuary.
This is a very appealing home in one of Paddington's most sought after locations. It enjoys easy access to the Latrobe Terrace lifestyle precinct, where you will find cafes, shops and bus stops with routes to the CBD. There are numerous quality schools within easy reach and the home sits in the catchment for Ithaca Creek State School and Kelvin Grove State College.
Properties of this calibre don't last long on the market - be sure you don't miss this one.
