Immaculate character filled home with dual living
A treasured Brisbane icon, the endearing Queensland workers cottage was built to stand the test of time. Picture perfect and nestled beside a nature reserve, the owners of this classic home have undertaken a stylish renovation whilst taking care to preserve and nurture the original features. The separate one bedroom self-contained living area on the lower level with its own exclusive entry provides an opportunity to create a rental income.
Tucked in behind a white picket fence adorned with mature hedges, a gatehouse leads to a private garden, with grass so green and lush, you’ll be kicking your shoes off straight away. Lattice screens frame the wide traditional verandah creating a versatile outdoor room with a most perfect north aspect, ideal for our climate.
The central hallway and decorative fretwork features allow welcome breezes to flow through the home from the front door to the family living and dining areas; the elevation providing uninterrupted views through large corner windows to the bordering parkland. An Italian Emilia gas range, modern white country-style cabinetry and freestanding island bench complete the stylish and functional kitchen.
White vertical joint walls and high ceilings throughout create a sense of space and a crisp canvas with which to add your own desired designer touches, and they complement the rich, satin finished floorboards beautifully. A marble highlighted bathroom with dual vanity, highly polished chrome cabinet door furniture and luxury tapware with rain shower, utter a sleek contemporary voice to the interiors.
While each of the sizable bedrooms are further accentuated by soaring ceiling height and dressed with plantation shutters, the master features built-in robes and air conditioning.
With a dedicated easement and neighbouring driveway on both side boundaries, there is the feeling of living on a much larger allotment. At the rear of the home is an enormous paved private undercover patio area, perfect for large scale entertaining or for use as a games area. There is also a single carport adjoining and room for two more cars on the driveway, behind large gates.
Overhanging the grassed backyard is a mature poinciana tree which will provide a showy display across the summer season and deliver a beautiful backdrop for your Christmas entertaining.
