With its beautiful original features carefully highlighted then combined with a precise selection of modern additions, this traditional character-filled Queenslander is able to offer refined living that is as effortless as it is stylish. What’s more, the property offers the best of both worlds being just minutes from the heart of Toowong while also enjoying peace and privacy thanks to its quiet locale and position set back from the street. This serene setting is furthered by the fact that the house is very much centred round a covered courtyard, pool and fish pond which delivers tranquil views and the sound of running water directly into the heart of the home.
Both the lounge and dining rooms open out onto this space, with their elegant, ornate ceilings and art deco features offering character and timeless style. They also boast a strong interaction with the adjacent rumpus room, study/library (with in-built shelving), outdoor terrace and barbecue zone which brings great versatility and multiple options for when entertaining. The custom-designed kitchen fits well within this space, its timber cabinetry and granite benches complementing the home’s heritage style while also delivering a touch of hard-working luxury.
The home’s four bedrooms are spread out across the three levels with the master room enjoying sole use of upper floor and enjoying its own ensuite and Juliet balcony. The second bedroom meanwhile, would make an ideal guest room or teenage retreat as it occupies most of the ground floor with private entry, a walk-in wardrobe and spa-like bathroom. The third bedroom is located at the front of the home, offering both a picturesque window seat and private sunroom while the fourth room sits adjacent and would also be ideal as a media room. Both rooms utilise the traditional-style family bathroom located nearby.
Outside, the well landscaped backyard creates the perfect, private backdrop to the heated pool, while a hot spa sits in its own outdoor pavilion providing rest and relaxation year round. The rest of the 607m2 block is fully fenced with a dual car garage and plentiful extra storage. There is also security and an air-conditioned wine cellar.
With its winning locale, peaceful setting, pool and character-filled home this property really does offer a winning combination, with its carefully conceived modern additions only adding to the lifestyle and liveability. At less than five kilometres to the CBD and with shops, restaurants, parkland, schools and transport all within walking distance, it really does ensure a great solution for families of all ages and a beautiful home within which to live and grow.
