Get ready to be surprised.
This 1950s three-bedroom Queenslander has had a basic makeover, with updated kitchen, bathroom and laundry and is perfect for first-home-owners, investors, or those looking to do an easy reno.
With hardwood timber floors, high ceilings and some of the charm of yesteryear retained in the multi-panel windows, awnings, original hardware items and mesh ventilation in bathroom — she has good bones to work with and would make a great family home.
You’ll feel nurtured in this cosy oasis positioned at the end of a no-through road on the corner of Allambie Street and High Central, with a bank of tall gums and she-oaks on the adjacent nature strip, providing shelter and shade. The cheerful ‘coffee and cream’ timber house sits proudly on the block and has a carport in front and plenty off-street parking, accessed from Allambie.
Set back from the street and facing due-East, this home is flooded with natural light and feels very welcoming as you step through the wide front-door from the deck, into your spacious open-plan living room with pesto feature-wall. There’s a separate dining zone or office nook and huge eat-in electric kitchen with timber-look cabinetry and granite-like laminate benchtops. Rows of deep drawers, overhead cupboards and a pantry provide ample storage and there’s room for an island, if you want even more bench-space.
The three bedrooms (two with built-ins) are all large and have massive windows, letting in all-day sunshine. The third bedroom has a barn-door and could be used as a home-office if you need to separate home-life from work.
A full bathroom (shower-over-bath, vanity and toilet) offers a peaceful sanctuary with dark floor-tiles and a pop of aqua/teal in the mosaic feature-tiles behind the glass screen. A separate laundry near the back-door, has a tub and under-bench storage, plus a tall cupboard for bulky items and vinyl timber-plank flooring (as does the kitchen and bedroom 3).
The yard needs a bit of TLC to connect the pathways and lawn into a usable space. A high courtyard-wall would provide privacy and lend a country charm to the treed garden—just add a tyre-swing, creeping wisteria vine, BBQ and entertaining area with fire-pit to complete the picture.
Conveniently located next to shops (with only petrol station and pizza bar on island); walking distance to ferry, school, essential services (dentist, doctor, chemist and hardware), plus parks, golf club and hotel; you really are central to everything!
