Impeccably Renovated Family Queenslander – A Clayfield Classic
28 Franz Road, Clayfield QLD 4011
A beautifully detailed, private residence destined to suit the needs of families of all ages, this generously proportioned Queenslander has an endearing appeal and a location that is only a short walk from gourmet markets, restaurants and leading schools. Featured are elegant living and outdoor entertaining areas, versatile games, media and study spaces, a 500-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar, a marble-topped kitchen with premium appliances and a bounty of traditional features. With a 13-metre inground pool set amidst landscaped, easily cared-for gardens, you will love calling this address home.
Redesigned and renovated to the highest standard, the five-bedroom residence has been insulated, relined and finished to include new internal doors and hardware, upscale fixtures and fittings and bespoke cabinetry that perfectly complements the quintessential Queenslander style.
The upper level’s interiors reveal Hamptons-inspired, dark-stained solid timber floors, high ceilings, classic mouldings and picture rails, with the themes of crisp white, grey and brushed nickel continuing throughout.
There is a selection of formal and relaxed family living rooms that are as equally versatile as they are stylish. The dining area features an upholstered bench seat, with storage under, to accommodate a banquet-sized table, the sunroom forms an ideal reading or breakfast room, while the media lounge with its integrated cabinetry offers the perfect spot for a movie.
From the welcoming porch upon entry to the quiet, secluded sunroom, the travertine-tiled poolside and table games terrace to the elevated, family-sized deck, the options available for a quiet gathering or a larger celebration are plentiful.
French doors and bifold windows connect the interiors to this superbly functional, semi-enclosed room, with a door and external stairs leading down to the pool. Purposefully designed to deliver intimate outdoor dining and lazy weekend lounging, the whole family will appreciate the Crimsafe-style screens and plantation shutters that encourage abundant breezes, keep out the insects, offer light control and protect against the weather.
A Weber Family Q has been integrated into the custom-built outside kitchen, while the sumptuous solid marble surface that appears indoors provides a servery to this area as well as granting a breakfast bar inside.
Appointed with German appliances including a Neff 5-burner natural gas cooktop, rangehood, a multi-function oven with a retractable door plus a steam oven and a semi-integrated Bosch dishwasher, the kitchen looks and performs with polished perfection. The levels of storage and user functionality are exceptional, with deep drawers, a double-door walk-in pantry and plumbed-in fridge, a coffee machine station and display shelves to house tableware.
There are two bedrooms on the upper floor and three on the lower level, a layout that will effortlessly adapt to growing families. The immaculately presented master suite looks out, through a bay window, to the front lawn, a charming white picket fence and the mature street trees that lie beyond. A king-sized retreat, this air-conditioned suite features a large walk-in-robe with custom inclusions and a light-filled ensuite with a dual-basin marble-topped vanity and a deluxe twin-head shower.
Stone countertops, a continuation of the shaker-style cabinetry, on-trend tiles and designer finishes feature in the bathroom on this level in addition to the second family bathroom on the ground floor, offering convenient amenities for residents, guests and pool users. LED lights and solar panels grant valuable energy efficiency.
Internal stairs lead to the tiled lower level where, at the end of the hallway, is a glass-doored wine cellaring room with temperature control cooling that holds 500 bottles. A mudroom or drop zone adjoins the garage and laundry, ideal for the end of the school day, and there is an enclosed storage room for bikes, luggage and camping gear.
Car parking is provided within two garages, one smaller to suit a trailer, and a separate carport, with off-street spaces for more vehicles behind the remote-operated driveway gate. Fully fenced, paved and landscaped yet wonderfully low maintenance, the level yard is ideal for children and pets.
Situated amongst other quality homes on large blocks, this residence is a 5-minute walk from Harris Farm Markets, Market Organics Clayfield and an array of popular local eating establishments, is under 8km from the CBD and less than a 10-minute drive from Brisbane’s domestic and international terminals.
This blue-chip address sits within the catchment for Eagle Junction State School, with this and the private schools of Clayfield College and St. Rita’s College approximately 3 minutes away by car.
