Original Queenslander for Inspired Renovation

This family home has huge potential. If you're interested in renovating a substantial character home, looking for a house with 'good bones', for a project where you will be able to restore original features as well as create your contemporary dream – then this house makes that dream a reality.

You'll need to act with haste though, as homes like this one do not become available very often. It was once a proud Queenslander complete with a return verandah, very high ceilings, timber floors and VJ walls. The verandah has been enclosed, but the original French doors that open out from various rooms remain intact. Timber floors appear stable, and VJ walls are original. The entrance door has pretty leadlighting, and the hall is enhanced with fretwork. The lounge room has a bay window in traditional casement style and a beautiful pendant light.

The rooms all have generous dimensions, with a logical layout, and the master bedroom has a split system airconditioner. The family bathroom has been updated and contains a claw foot bath and shower over bath, and is certainly very useable in its current state.

The kitchen consists of solid timber cupboards, a large walk-in pantry, gas cooktop, and underbench oven. It has an island bench and provides ample storage and bench space, and has an exterior door to one side.

There is a sunny covered rear deck with a northerly aspect and a lovely treed outlook. Downstairs from the deck is a level garden. Access under the house at the rear provides heaps of storage room, and a laundry area. This space is quite high, allowing for relatively easy development options (STCA).

The home sits on a 458m2 block, and is located in one of the most highly sought after and leafy suburbs in Brisbane. It is a mere 6.4kms to the CBD, and is in the Bardon State School and The Gap State High School zones. It is virtually surrounded by parkland, with the Mt. Coot-tha forest just a short walk away. There is a bus stop around 50mts from the front door.

This lovely old Queenslander is now in need of someone with vision and motivation to transform it into a spectacular contemporary modern family home. For the right person, the possibilities here are very exciting.
