39 Uplands Terrace Wynnum - Sold
Step inside this picture-perfect post-war home and be instantly transported
to a time when life was simpler…
In 2020, with the year that has been, one could be forgiven for setting out in search of the simple life. And here, at the corner of Wynnum’s pretty Uplands Terrace, stands a house ever-so-calmly asserting that if you seek, so shall you find.
“You’ll never have to see the inside of a Bunnings ever again!” Duke Realty director Sam Patterson declares as he stands atop the cute front porch of this renovated post-war home. And while it’s a promise of sorts from this ever-enthusiastic real estate agent, an inspection reveals it holds true. For, immediately it’s clear that there are no weekends to spend demolishing and digging, painting or polishing here – in fact, there’s seemingly no work to be done at all!
It’s rare to apply the term “turn-key” to a house of this vintage, but key-turning is all that’s required at this picturesque Bayside home. Good news for those who don’t quite consider themselves the next little Steve or Susie Homemaker, you won’t need to lift a finger here – just sit back, relax and enjoy the spoils of a newly-renovated abode.
A character charmer disguised as an unassuming post-war family-maker, this home delivers on both substance and style. Equal parts “city meets country” and “vintage meets new”, it’s a house of harmonious contrast that challenges stereotypes of the post-war hotbox through a charming stylistic fusion, producing the ultimate light-filled and breezy, peaceful and grounded, quaint yet modern family home.
A sense of authenticity, warmth, homeliness and nostalgia have all been lovingly captured here, courtesy of design finishes including ornate decorative feature tiling, a characterful clawfoot bath, the rawness of timber floors, decks and bench tops and a ranch-style front fence and farmhouse gate that welcomes visitors to this homely abode.
At the same time, a bold, monochromatic palette and a reformed kitchen featuring dedicated butler’s pantry and a full suite of modern appliances, work together with industrial accents in the form of tapware and hardware, fixtures and feature light fittings, adding a dash of edge and a cool urban feel while elevating this renovated residence into a chic, contemporary home.
Beyond the house, a double carport delivers you directly to an elevated platform at the back door, ensuring transporting groceries from boot to benchtop is hardly a chore at all. Meanwhile, a neat wrap-around yard and gardens manicured and coiffed for perfect preservation and presentation, ensure easy weekends and enduring street appeal.
Living is easy with soothing bay breezes enjoyed while surveying the friendly and social street from a perfectly paved front porch. Alternatively, retreat to a raised back deck that embraces warm winter sun, enjoyed in the peaceful confines of a quiet and low-maintenance rear yard. Party in the front, balmy bliss out back; the distinct lack of demand for weekend chores and yard work guarantee you can enjoy the best that bayside living has to offer.
A 7-minute stroll to Wynnum’s famed waterfront esplanade, this home places residents firmly in one of the Bayside’s most coveted locales. Moments from some of the best neighbourhood coffee shops, convenience stores and restaurants, the temptation may be to hardly make use of the home’s pristine kitchen at all!
Conveniently positioned just moments from bus routes, train lines and with quick access to the Port Motorways and Gateway, this home is also in catchment for a number of the area’s top day care and public and private schools. A hop, skip and jump to the golf course, Moreton Bay’s crystalline waters and the Bayside’s much-loved boating culture and vibrant sailing club community ensures recreational options abound.
Reminiscent of 50s-inspired, farmhouse-style living, albeit without the housewives and husbandry, this is a home that simultaneously embraces city-folk sensibility and calm, collected, chic urban cool. It’s a place that ultimately rejects the post-war 50s stereotype, as you are greeted with a thoroughly modern and stylish abode. All that is left to do is simply throw off the shackles and live a life unburdened as you make of this house, your home…
