LIFESTYLE AND INVESTMENT ALL IN ONE
Opportunities like this don't come along very often. Not only is the impressive Queenslander a perfect place to come home to rest, play or raise a family, the one acre property allows you to immediately build on your investment nest egg with a Development Approval for a one into four lot subdivision already approved.
Only 20 minutes to Toowoomba, 17 to Gatton, 50 to Ipswich and 90 to Brisbane, this centrally located historic residence "Cranwell" sits proudly on the one acre allotment and boasts loads of character, exuding a traditional charm and warm homely feel that is becoming harder to find in today's market.
12 foot ceilings combine with the decorative breezeways, tongue and groove walls, polished hoop pine floors, ornate fretwork, feature brick fireplace, stained glass windows and oversize room proportions to create an ambience of quality, character and timeless appeal.
The formal lounge is generous in proportion and features a large open fire place, and is separated from the formal dining area by an ornate fretwork partition.
A recently updated kitchen with island bench, 5 burner cooktop, electric wall oven, ample cupboards and dishwasher provides modern touches while still tastefully blending with the charm of the home.
The large casual living space opens from the kitchen, allowing free flow of conversation with family and friends while preparing meals. This living area features ornate ceiling rose and cornices, and a slow combustion stove for those cooler winter nights, and opens onto the east facing deck area ideally suited to sipping coffee and reading the paper while basking in the warm filtered sunlight early in the morning.
The massive master bedroom features a bay window, modern ensuite, built in wardrobe and access to a side verandah which can be also accessed from two of the other bedrooms.
The central hallway has been modified to include shelving for books and games that would rival a library.
The main bathroom includes separate shower, vanity and claw foot bath, with the main toilet separate.
Underneath the house includes a huge lockable workshop space for tinkering in the "man cave", additional storage area, and double car accommodation that leads to the BBQ area.
Other quality modern features include fully ducted evaporative air conditioning, ceiling fans, keyed security locks and fly screens on windows and doors, with water coming from town supply, tank and bore. The outside of the house has been recently painted.
With an increasing growth in the area and many opportunities for employment within close proximity, local primary school and RSL, and an easy commute to a number of private schools and universities in Toowoomba and Gatton, 30 Laidley Street Helidon presents itself as the ideal property for a diverse range of buyers.
Ill health forces the current owners to part with this gem of a property, so their loss is your gain.
