Auction Location: Onsite.
Currently tenanted, this well-maintained, spacious double storey home with multiple living areas and dual street access is situated in a prime, elevated position only 10 min from the CBD and walking distance to Brisbane Boys’ College and the Queensland Academy for Science, Mathematics and Technology.
For investors, this property will always be in demand, offering sizeable internal dimensions and a versatile floorplan, and of course a high level of amenity and convenience, with green spaces nearby to suit inner-city workers and university students that share accommodation, and families with children at school. St. Ignatius Catholic Primary School is only 2 minutes away by car and this address sits within the catchment for Toowong SS and Indooroopilly SHS.
Set upon a large residential allotment of 607m2 with established gardens, mature shade trees and a level backyard, this home’s eclectic style is evident from the moment you pass the white, ornate stepped front fence and see the curved corners and central square arched entry of this unique residence.
An internal staircase with a steel Art Deco inspired handrail leads to the upper level of the home, where you’re greeted with polished timber floors, two large living spaces resplendent with ornamental column room dividers, curved ceilings and an abundance of louvres that fill all rooms with light and open to capture the prevailing breezes.
The kitchen is a retro lover’s delight, having original two-toned cabinets with overheads and a pass-through servery and breakfast bar, an elongated double sink unit and a combined gas oven and stovetop.
There are four bedrooms on this level, high ceilings creating an added element of spaciousness. Three of the bedrooms are of a good size and have built-in robes and ceiling fans, the fourth could ideally be used as a study or designated work from home space. The family bathroom has a bath/shower combination, pedestal basin and a handy storage cupboard for towels and toiletries.
On the lower level of the home the theme continues, with an expansive and naturally cool casual living zone or rumpus room and a serving bar that has an almost movie theatre foyer or old-fashioned milk bar feel to it. A second kitchen in this area is wonderfully practical when entertaining and ideal for teenagers when they have their friends over to stay.
Off-street parking is provided for multiple cars, both on the long driveway at the side of the house and via a separate street entry at the rear of the property. With public transport nearby on Sherwood Road, commuting to the central Toowong retail and vibrant dining precinct, and onwards into the CBD will be a breeze, enabling you to leave the car at home.
With an abundance of storage, and a marked level of functionality and individuality, living here offers something a little out of the ordinary, in an extraordinary location.
