A comprehensive renovation has transformed this classic Queenslander into a sophisticated, yet utterly family-friendly home that is perfectly suited to entertaining and everyday living in effortless style. Built over two levels it offers light and bright spaces together with contemporary finishes that work in with the home’s original features while also channelling timeless modernity.
Downstairs is all about relaxed living, dining and entertaining, with the open plan room able to fully incorporate the surrounding alfresco areas of a large covered terrace, a flat lawn and the saltwater pool. Encompassed by leafy gardens, the whole zone is peaceful, private and really works as one single space perfectly designed to take full advantage of Queensland’s temperate climate.
The modern kitchen makes for a great feature, bringing both good looks and functionality to the space, with neutral stone benches, European stainless steel appliances and a bi-folding servery window that really reinforces that alfresco vibe. An extensive wall of cabinetry in sleek charcoal allows surfaces to remain clean and uncluttered, while also complementing the lighter-toned bench-tops and Spotted Gum timber floors.
The adjacent laundry continues this style, utilising the same finishes along with expansive proportions and custom fittings and fixtures. In this way, it is able to offer plentiful storage, (with built-in ironing board, two laundry chutes and drying area) as well as features such as an in-built wine rack which allows for a seamless extension from the kitchen; much like a butler’s pantry. There is also a media room on this level (also able to be a guest bedroom), along with a full bathroom and study/home office. In fact the whole home has been designed to offer maximum versatility, so as to best meet the ever-changing needs of a busy family.
Upstairs, the bedroom wing provides space for a study nook and five bedrooms, all of which have built-in wardrobes. The wing can be closed off from the rest of the house, allowing it to remain quiet and private when needed. The family bathroom enjoys maximum usability having been designed with a separate toilet, a shower room and dual basins. The master suite meanwhile, offers something of a private escape with an ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and room for a private lounge area. There is also security, an intercom system, TV points to all bedrooms, air-conditioning and a dual vehicle carport with extra storage.
Within walking distance of Ironside State School and St Peters, the property is also a quick stroll to shops and eateries with the University of Queensland just down the road and the CBD less than 10 minutes away. A timeless family home with nothing left to do except enjoy the superlative lifestyle and location. This is a property where everyone can feel at home.
