This gracious colonial Queenslander is truly grand in every respect. From its sheer scale, to the wonderful lifestyle it offers.
The home sits proudly on an elevated 871m2 block, in a blue chip Hawthorne location. Living spans two levels and the home is blessed with timeless character features throughout, yet marries these beautifully with contemporary style and conveniences.
The home has a traditional layout, with a wide central hallway leading to the generous open plan living and entertaining areas at the rear. The galley style kitchen has been renovated to include sleek cabinetry, stone benchtops, a large stainless steel oven and cooktop and integrated wine fridge. Timber bi-fold doors link the kitchen and dining directly with the wide rear deck, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor layout. This area could accommodate the largest parties in style and is the perfect space to relax and entertain all year round, with the city view as your backdrop.
There is also a separate, elegant sitting room on this level, complete with a fireplace; ideal as a reading room or to watch TV.
There are three bedrooms upstairs, including the Master, which has walk-through clothes storage and an ensuite bathroom, with double vanities. The other two bedrooms both access very functional study areas and they share the family sized main bathroom with a shower and clawfoot bath.
On the lower level, you will find a vast living and entertaining space that opens via French doors to the external terrace, landscaped garden and swimming pool. There is also a second kitchen on this level - making it easy to cater for pool and garden parties, or ideal for dual living. There are an additional three bedrooms on this level, all with French doors accessing the yard, offering great airflow and easy access - one of these rooms could easily double as a home office or gym.
Completing the lower level is another bathroom and laundry, with direct access to an undercover drying court. The home has double car accommodation, a water tank and there is reverse cycle air-conditioning upstairs and down.
The location is highly prized; close to the popular Hawthorne Cinema and neighbouring eateries, bus stops and Hawthorne Park. It is a short drive to the lifestyle precinct of Oxford Street and a short stroll to Lourdes Hill College as well a short commute to a number of quality catholic and independent schools. The home currently sits in the catchment for Norman Park State School and has easy access to public transport and the CBD.
Timelessly elegant and spacious Queenslanders such as this are rare and always highly sought after, don't miss this opportunity.
