This stylish 1930s Queenslander is perfectly located and sits on a deep block with a hidden surprise at the back!
The charming older house - complete with 10 foot ceilings, bay windows, decorative archways and a new roof - opens onto a large pavilion-style breezeway and new architect-designed self-contained extension that serves as a perfect parents' retreat or granny flat.
The Queenslander boasts a cottage garden with a pleasant timbered seating area, a sunroom, spacious master bedroom and lounge, a second bedroom, as well as a bathroom and kitchen. The layout allows for an additional bedroom. The house has an ideal north-easterly aspect, and its natural heating and cooling features are supplemented with ducted air conditioning.
A modern low maintenance Bush & Beach designed extension has a north facing sundeck, a spacious open plan kitchenette, dining room, lounge and office area with 11 foot ceilings; as well a master bedroom, walk-in robe and stylish bathroom.
Complete with an energy efficient rooftop solar array, large rain water tank, parking for four vehicles (2 undercover and 1 secure), extensive storage space; and a generous undercover area perfect for a home gym, workshop and second laundry.
The house is ideally suited for a family with high school or university students, but the highly adaptable layout will suit many combinations of residents; including young children, and grandparents.
Trendy coffee shop at each end of the street; and the house is just a pleasant walk from major schools, Taringa railway station and two major bus routes. It's just a one minute drive to local shops and the newly renovated Indooroopilly Shoppingtown, three minutes to the University of Queensland, five minutes to the Wesley Hospital and 10 minutes to the CBD and the inner-city bypass.
Newly opened Legacy Way tunnel provides quick access to the northside, airport and Gateway motorway.
