Apartments in this particular pocket of Chermside are highly sought after and tightly held thanks to a prime position close to a range of amenity and lifestyle offerings.
Located on the mid-floor of “Superga” – an apartment block rising high above the neighbourhood like the Italian hill it’s named after, this building also shares its name with the iconic Italian sneaker brand.
Positioned to the front of this long-standing, solidly built classic “six pack” development, your apartment provides an ideal vantage point from which to survey the street and neighbourhood without being “hemmed in”.
This abode also benefits from a near-parkside location two doors down from John Patterson Park with its BBQ huts and children’s playground, allowing you to enjoy the convenience of apartment living with the bonus of this local greenspace as your yard.
With major arterial Gympie Road a short stroll beyond the end of Kidston Terrace, residents are presented with direct and easy access to public transportation and a range of retail and medical services – Wallace Street Medical Centre and Prince Charles and Holy Spirit Northside hospitals all close at hand.
Minutes walk to the vibrant retail and entertainment precinct of Westfield Chermside guarantees a range of retail, dining and entertainment options can be found at your doorstep, while the Chermside Aquatic Centre, Library, local gyms, sporting facilities and nearby Marchant Park walking paths and bikeways ensure recreational options abound.
13km from the CBD and in one of Brisbane’s most well-connected suburbs, enjoy easy access to the city and north to the Sunshine Coast via the Bruce Highway, with connections to Brisbane’s tunnel system and Gateway Motorway also facilitating southern corridor travel to the Gold Coast.
With over 100m2 of floor space, there’s a welcomed sense of spaciousness to this apartment that ensures this residence out-muscles many newer 2 bedroom apartments in terms of floorspace.
A rarity in apartments these days, this home boasts a large, open-plan living space with separate, dedicated lounge and dining areas and a generously-proportioned u-shaped kitchen with abundant storage, cabinetry and bench space.
A vintage-tiled terrace and tidy, yet original bathroom provide a hint of nostalgia, while stripped-back polished concrete floors, timbergrain cabinetry and stainless steel appliances including underbench oven, concealed rangehood and ceramic cooktop offer an up-to-date aesthetic and modern convenience.
The air-conditioned living space opens through a sliding glass door with security screen to a small, tiled, side terrace while 2 generously-sized bedrooms are located discreetly at either end of a private hall. Both rooms boast abundant built-in storage and excellent natural light and ventilation thanks to large, screened windows, while a northern orientation and ceiling fans promise comfort year-round.
A blast from the past, the sizeable and functional bathroom with freestanding laundry tub and shower-over-bath configuration is conveniently located mid-way between both bedrooms, with the separately-located toilet another welcome feature rare in units of today.
Meanwhile, directly below pop the hood on your own secure, tilt-door garage to reveal large, single car accommodation and plenty of room for extra storage as required.
With much of the major body work already complete with the removal of original tiles and carpets to reveal recently sealed polished concrete floors, those with vision or skills to tune and tinker can employ a few cosmetic touch-ups to get this renovation revving, adding value as a highly rentable, dependable investment or a solid starter home.
