A large, level, grassed rear yard also attends this 405m2 block, with a collection of palms in one corner beckoning its transformation as an urban oasis while also enjoying the shade of a beautiful established gum tree.
Enjoy plenty of room to extend out back on either level should one so desire, in order to capture more of the glorious morning sun and soul-soothing breezes off the river afforded by the home’s beautiful aspect and location.
Positioned in a street boasting numerous quality homes and where others have begun their own transformations, the end of the road delivers residents to the river while the property’s front deck enjoys a view over Faulkner Park as it unfolds directly across the road.
Enjoy easy access to a dedicated children’s playground and the Graceville Riverside Parklands, while additional recreation options including Brisbane Golf Club, the Tennis Centre, and local sailing, rugby, AFL and netball clubs are all only moments away.
Located comfortably within reach of both Chelmer and Graceville train stations, this location also places families firmly in catchment for a number of quality public and private schools. In addition to a number of well-frequented local café offerings, the neighbouring suburbs of Graceville and Sherwood ensure retail, food and services options abound.
Representing a rare opportunity for entry-level buying in a blue chip suburb bordered by beautiful neighbouring Graceville on one side and bounded on all others by the natural curve and bend of the Brisbane River, it’s easy to see why so many families are attracted to this pretty pocket.
A highly liveable colonial-style charmer with renovations already commenced on transforming this into an extended family home where traditional character meets contemporary styling.
Be drawn to the home’s charmed features such as its timber and tin construction, traditional window hoods and shaded verandahs, while inside detailed fretwork in the form of decorative arches and breezeways and natural timbers abound.
Upstairs, the home boasts three generously-sized bedrooms which enjoy good separation and privacy from the large open lounge and dining spaces, with the master enjoying access to a private ensuite and to the shaded front verandah through a bay window-style set of colonial bar doors.
Two additional built-in bedrooms are serviced by a shared family bathroom which boasts fresh, contemporary white tiling with an opportunity to put one’s own personal stylistic stamp on the space through selections of fixtures, vanities and tapware.
New flooring has been installed to the large, light-filled, free-flowing living and dining spaces also on this level, while an original though immaculately maintained country-style kitchen boasts a highly functional layout and appliances including under bench oven and dishwasher.
Gated rear stairs flow from an upper-level entertaining deck off the kitchen, while work has almost been completed on extending the home’s functional space below via a large, open plan, fully tiled area provides options as additional storage, a large home office or additional family rumpus. Plumbing rough-ins have also been completed for an additional bathroom and kitchenette servicing this space, with a laundry and dual lock-up car accommodation also provided on this level.
