Auction Location: 26 Overend Street Norman Park
Prime location, premier opportunity. Filled with character and classic appeal, this Queenslander occupies a wide, 810m2 allotment in beautiful, blue-chip Norman Park and poses a range of exciting possibilities to the astute buyer. Poised for a refresh or architectural redesign to create your forever home, immediate potential also exists for builders and developers to deliver an already lodged DA, with plans available detailing a reconfigured layout and addition of two, stylish townhouses (STCA.) Families are drawn to this exclusive suburb, with prestigious schools, river and inner-city convenience on the doorstep.
With so many nearby properties having had substantial renovations undertaken, this timely offering is one sure to capture attention. Situated on a quiet street with parkland opposite, the dual-titled allotment with its vehicle-width accesses each side and large wraparound backyard promising plenty of space for the kids to play, boasts a freeform style inground pool and entertainer’s deck with sought after north-east aspect.
Welcoming and spacious, move into the comfortable surroundings and relax while you consider your next move. Envisage an extension to indoor and outdoor living spaces, raise the house and repurpose the undercroft storage areas, restore the gorgeous traditional features or completely renovate interiors to a contemporary standard with updated, high-end inclusions.
The twin-gable design incorporates banks of casement windows to direct breezes, leadlight front door, entrance hall and bay window highlights, and a sleepout which has been divided to provide an office area and additional bedroom, both air-conditioned with split systems. At the top of the stairs, a semi-enclosed verandah seating area forms the entry, leading into the home’s formal living areas, with a large dining room situated at the back.
Timber floorboards and VJ interiors carry throughout the upper level, with decorative plaster finishes providing character details and fretwork archway dividers separating rooms as is tradition in Queenslander houses.
French doors open internal rooms to the front verandah, back deck and side sleepout spaces which offer the versatility of use as a nursery, playroom or media area in their current form. The timber kitchen features electric stove and dishwasher, coffee machine and appliance nook, and overhead cupboards for storage convenience. A cast-iron claw foot bath and modern vanity complete the family bathroom.
Separate to the house and situated at the end of the driveway is a single garage building with additional workshop space. A poly water tank and pump will keep the garden irrigated and the pool level topped up. High fences surround, keeping the pets, and children, in.
Extensive drawings have been prepared to transform this property into a boutique, three home development, in keeping with the style of the surroundings and prestige of this suburb. Each of the townhomes incorporates a brilliant, three bedroom, two full bathroom and double car garage design, and offer valuable, highly desirable inclusions that vary between individual layouts.
Plunge pools, study nooks and mud room, walk in robes and luxurious ensuites feature, with both upper rumpus and lower level living areas, powder room amenities and outdoor entertaining with integrated BBQ cooking delivering house-sized living, without the upkeep. This stunning, proposed development presents an impressive vision for consideration.
A family friendly neighbourhood with wide, tree-lined streets, find nearby parks for weekend picnics, children’s playgrounds, sports facilities, bikeways and walking paths either side of Norman Creek. Dovetail On Overend is just 200m away from this residence, a perfect spot to pick up a morning coffee after your walk and some gluten free delicacies for the family.
Situated only 5km from the CBD, it’s Norman Park’s great public transport convenience with train, bus and ferry services close by, and proximity to majors that sees it popular and so desirable for city commuters. Located a few minutes away by car, or between 10 and 20 minutes if walking, are several highly regarded state and private schools, including Norman Park State School, Coorparoo Secondary College, Lourdes Hill College and Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie.)
