On the high side of a quiet street, less than 2km from the CBD, this impeccably updated traditional worker’s cottage delivers quintessential, character-filled charm in abundance together with a list of stylish inclusions highly sought for modern-day living. With a fresh, radiant appeal, designer-inspired interiors include a brand-new kitchen and bathroom, classic formal living areas, restored period features and a sun-drenched terrace for effortless entertaining. A city-view residence that will appeal to busy professional couples and astute investors, this address presents exceptional commuter convenience and proximity to QUT.
An early Queenslander within one of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs, the home features an exposed frame façade, a welcoming two-sided verandah with a northeast aspect and that distinctive symmetrical design with a central staircase and entry.
Reflecting simplicity and purpose, living areas are spread across a single level and open at the rear to a private, leafy landscaped, low-maintenance yard. A place to entertain, play and unwind beside a glowing fire pit with a glass in hand, this city-sized 263m2 allotment is perfect for those that desire an easy-care lifestyle without the high upkeep.
Inside, find original horizontal and vertical joint wall and ceiling linings, polished hoop pine floorboards, French doors and a striking leadlight window feature in the bathroom. Perfectly complemented by the addition of brilliant white and contrasting oak cabinetry, sleek stone benchtop surfaces, trending soft-grey and white tiled finishes and all-new matt-black tapware and fittings, you will love the attention to detail.
The kitchen’s redesign incorporates a fresh contemporary style and fantastic functionality and has a large breakfast bar, an all-new under-bench oven and a 4-zone induction cooktop, a dishwasher and ample storage.
Featured are glass, above counter pendants, recessed lights hidden below overhead cupboards and energy-efficient LED downlights included throughout the home. New split-system air-conditioning systems and ceiling fans have been installed, while traditional Queenslander window hoods shield the house’s interiors from the weather.
Engineered timber floors and an angled, re-lined ceiling add a fresh feel and look to this and the adjoining dining area. Accompanying this space is a swish European-style laundry that is cleverly concealed behind bi-fold doors. Again, with light stone countertops and contrasting cabinet facings, gloss white, brick-laid subway splashback and modern floor tiles, the level of finishes is outstanding and continues through every part of the house.
Each of the three bedrooms has a crisp, clean finish ready for you to explore design possibilities and individualise with your preferred décor. Completely replaced, the bathroom has an oak wall-hung vanity with a circular basin, wide, mirrored cabinets and an open, walk-in shower with an in-built niche shelf. The leadlight-featured casement windows recognise the Queenslander’s history, blending with modern styling updates.
Parking is provided for one vehicle undercover, with the undercroft offering secure additional storage. In a position that will always be in demand, you or your valued tenants can leave the car at home, catch a bus into the city or Southbank, and connect with ease to James Street’s eclectic retail and restaurants and the Howard Smith Wharves’ vibrant meet-and-dine scene.
Just a short walk from QUT’s Creative Industries Precinct and La Boite Theatre, the Kelvin Grove Urban Village and Red Hill’s service amenities and Five Star Cinemas, the level of convenience available from the location of this desirable city pad is second to none.
