Combining position, size and city views, this traditional, colourful Queenslander offers a beautiful family home in Coorparoo. The home is estimated to have been built in 1923 and many of the timeless character features have been maintained. Polished timber floorboards, high ceilings, ornamental fretwork and vertical joint walls characterise the interior of the home. Windows along the deck are finished with stained glass that throw coloured light when rays of sunlight hit. The archway surrounding the door to the kitchen from the deck is particularly charming, with stained glass creating the image of entangled vines around the threshold.
The main floor holds a large kitchen with traditional cabinetry and space for a dining table. The high ceiling features exposed beams crossing through the middle of the room. Behind the kitchen is an expansive room that can hold accommodate both a lounge and formal dining room. This room has a bay window and in-built bookcase that stretches from the polished hardwood up the wall. A traditional entrance verandah opens from opposite the bookcase allowing an open, airy living space and entry way.
On the upper level are two bedrooms and the master room. Downstairs are a further two bedrooms, rumpus room and bar that create a separate area that beckons for guests to be welcomed.
The deck, which projects from the rear of the home, overlooks a large swimming pool. The two features combine to create the perfect home for balmy summer days.
