Gorgeous Bardon Home with Contemporary Flair
This traditional family home has all the charm of a circa-1910 cottage, with all the modern conveniences one would expect. Sitting on an elevated low maintenance block with a leafy Bardon outlook, this home offers an enviable lifestyle in a lovely suburb that is quiet, and yet so convenient to where you need to be.
From the street, the home invites you in with its white picket fence and classic front verandah. The central hallway and original rooms feature original period details such as high ceilings, fretwork breezeways, VJ wall paneling and traditional timber flooring. This part of the home includes an elegant master bedroom, a very spacious dressing room and ensuite bathroom. Across the hall is a second bedroom with a built in robe with the family bathroom adjacent featuring a beautiful claw-foot bath.
The open plan living, casual dining and kitchen zone flows to a large north-facing deck making for easy entertaining. The modern and functional kitchen provides plenty of storage behind 2-pac cabinetry, ample bench space and stainless steel appliances.
The rear deck has louvre privacy screening, and enjoys beautiful breezes that keep the upper level of the home very comfortable, essential for the Brisbane climate. Although reverse cycle airconditioning is installed, it will rarely be necessary.
Downstairs you will find two further bedrooms with built in robes, second family bathroom and a second living space- just perfect for teenagers or for when family separation is required. This area opens to another large deck with access to the back yard.
The home has fantastic storage options- from extensive interior storage to a very large 2.5 car garage with remote control door. To ensure safety all potentially vulnerable windows have metal grills, and a security system has been installed.
The home has been freshly painted in warm neutral tones, and is has been very well maintained. Solar power means that electricity bills are a thing of the past, and a water tank connected to a garden watering system assists to make life very easy. There is room for a pool in the back yard if desired.
The home is located in the highly sought after school catchment for Ithaca Creek State School and Kelvin Grove State College. With parks, Ithaca Creek walking trails, the Ashgrove and Paddington shopping and café precincts and the CBD all so close- this home is quite position perfect.
