This well preserved home retains the charm of a bygone era, featuring all the hallmarks of its original beauty with sweeping wrap-around verandas, exquisite fretwork, solid brass fittings, a magnificently restored fireplace, sash windows and double French doors. The original hoop pine floors are polished to impeccable condition, original vj walls appear as new and the soaring 3.4 meter ceilings have been dramatically emphasised with pressed metal finishes and original ornate lighting.
The entrance of the home creates a grand first impression, which is only enhanced by the wide entry hallway. To the right is a spacious sitting & separate formal dining room, and situated to the left there is an enormous master bedroom with its own walk-in-robe and ensuite. Further down the hall, there are two generously proportioned bedrooms at the centre of the home, complete with built-ins and a private retreat perfect for a study or TV room. In addition to this, there is a fourth bedroom and generously sized study.
The central kitchen is the beating heart of this family home. The Hamptons-inspired kitchen and open plan living space was meticulously designed by Wyer + Craw, a company whose name is synonymous with quality craftsmanship and sophistication. Complete with double width granite benchtops, double Ilve ovens, this light filled room flows seamlessly through multiple double French doors to the deck, solar heated pool and level lawn beyond. In the spirit of creating something truly special, the integrated Weber BBQ with matching granite benchtop only adds to creating the perfect environment for year-round entertaining & family friendly living.
Privacy has been considered throughout with the huge verandas designed to accommodate a variety of options for outdoor entertaining. Very few homes have originality that gets better with age. Sitting on the front veranda, you'll quite literally feel completely immersed in the timeless and flawless space.
Every room has been polished with painstaking precision, and you won't believe the period details and true originality which lay the foundation for whatever option the heart desires. The entire space captures the essence of Queenslanders. Freshly painted and meticulously polished, there is a timeless character which compliments the relaxed ambience of the home. The north-east facing front veranda is without a doubt one of the home's most attractive features.
