The quiet sophistication and exclusive surrounds of Hunter Street provide a fitting setting for this meticulously presented Queenslander, where space for all the family, a pool and a tennis court have been incorporated into more than 1214m2 of private grounds.
Having been comprehensively renovated and extended across three levels, the original 1920s home has now well and truly come into its own, balancing an ideal mix of grand, original character with totally modern living. Timber floors, many original design features such as decorative ceilings and generously proportioned open spaces all work in with a superb selection of refined finishes, creating a home that is as much suited to effortless family living as it is to impressive entertaining. Alfresco areas also play an integral role, with multiple balconies and an expansive outdoor living room fully assimilated into the design, bringing private, leafy views, breezes and a relaxed indoor/outdoor feel that is so well suited to the Queensland lifestyle.
The central level is the hub of the home with the large open plan space provisioning for casual and formal living and dining along with providing room for the stylish kitchen. The seamless merging of old and new is well represented in the space, with the kitchen effortlessly bridging the gap thanks to elegant stone-topped benches, stainless steel appliances and plentiful storage behind sleek cabinetry. The master suite is located on this level in its own private wing and enjoys access to an alfresco sitting room along with a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom. The additional four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study can be found throughout the house, with the upper level creating a private space for children with two bedrooms, a bathroom and a rumpus/play area with inbuilt study centre.
The ground floor meanwhile, has a further two rooms along with a large rumpus which comes complete with surround sound and a wall of custom built media storage. There is also a wine cellar and direct access to the rear yard where a covered terrace, pool and the North-South facing, flood lit tennis court awaits. Built across two lots, the property has the space to ensure a high level of seclusion, with mature hedging, fences and established gardens surrounding much of the property’s perimeter. Furthermore, plantation shutters have been used throughout the home, bringing additional privacy along with adding to the home’s overall appeal. Air-conditioning, security, expansive storage and technological wiring are all in place, with parking for four vehicles, a workshop and vegetable garden positioned towards the rear of the property.
Long held as an area favoured by executive families for its close proximity to schools, shops and public transport, this stunning family home is certainly in very good company in this well-loved enclave.
