This grand and stately Queenslander with truly wonderful proportions has been completely renovated to create a large, family home that perfectly showcases timeless character features but with a contemporary twist.
Situated on a generous 810m2 block, the 5+ bedroom home is set in a lovingly tended, drought tolerant garden, creating superb street appeal. Inside the home is equally appealing, boasting magnificent features that will stand the test of time.
To the front of the home is a large office with integrated cabinetry and a guest bedroom, which enjoys access to a two-way bathroom. A wide hall leads to a generous formal lounge, which has a fireplace; while to the back is the open plan kitchen, dining and upper deck.
Soaring ceilings add to the property's sense of space and grandeur, while the polished timber floors have a dark tint adding a modern edge. This is a very practical and well-considered layout, creating several areas for entertaining and relaxing.
The gourmet kitchen is well appointed and will be appreciated by the most enthusiastic home cook. It boasts timber benchtops, a freestanding Falcon cooker and a butler's pantry with substantial storage space. There is a servery window opening to the spacious deck and the laundry is also conveniently off the kitchen.
A paved courtyard garden offers the perfect spot to grow herbs and vegetables, or simply a quiet and private space to enjoy a cuppa.
The dining area adjoins the kitchen and it features a second fireplace, creating a lovely setting for winter dinner parties, while the home's deep rear deck is ideal for alfresco entertaining.
The Master suite is located on the upper level and it is beautifully finished, with plush carpet, a walk-in dressing room and a luxuriously appointed ensuite bathroom with a striking freestanding bathtub.
A wide, light-filled staircase leads to the lower level, which also has fabulously high ceilings.
There are an additional three bedrooms, all with walk-in storage and ensuite bathrooms.
A large rumpus opens onto the sheltered rear deck, flat lawn, lush landscaped garden and large swimming pool.
This is a fantastic layout for children of all ages and for enjoying the quintessential indoor/outdoor Queensland lifestyle.
With a separate entry downstairs, the property is ideal for multi-generational living and offers several different spaces to relax or entertain, regardless of the season or weather.
The home has a huge garage, with secure parking for two vehicles plus storage room and extra off-street parking. It has air-conditioning throughout, 6000 litre water tanks and 5.5KW of solar.
This magnificent home is in a fantastic, convenient location in the heart of inner city Paddington and just 3km to the CBD.
It's a short stroll to Paddington Central, where you will find cafes and restaurants, shops, services and transport.
Gracious character homes on inner city blocks this large are rare and highly coveted - this enviable property offers the chance to invest in your lifestyle for now and into the future.
