Charming Queenslander | 2,564sqm Block
Rarely do homes of this grandeur become available to purchase. This beautiful traditional Queenslander has been lovingly restored to embody the classic traditional features while evoking a modern feel. Original VJ wall panelling, leadlight feature windows and doors, ornate trimmings & fretwork are some of the many traditional features that are highlighted throughout the whole home coupled with neutral tones that bring a fresh and modern style. The high 11-foot ceilings, sash windows and French doors throughout represent the period feel and allow for year-round cross breezes, keeping the house feeling beautifully open and cool. The many characteristic features throughout make it a classic and truly unique home.
Ideally located in the secluded and prestigious Rainforest Estate. This grand home stands out amongst newly built luxury homes, yet it is tucked away in a very private location in a quiet cul-de-sac offering privacy and much sought-after peace and quiet.
The spacious home features 4 large bedrooms, all fitting queen size beds comfortably. Three of the bedrooms are located on the upper floor and all have their own split system a/c, with two of these bedrooms also having French doors that open out onto veranda. The main family bathroom is also located on this level.
The fourth and largest bedroom is located on the lower level. The entire floor has previously been used as a parent's retreat. This expansive space is ready to use however you can imagine and has potential for dual living. The area also has its own split system air conditioner that heats and cools. The fluid open plan design encourages the relationship between indoor and outdoor living and establishes a direct connection with the natural surrounds with French doors opening out into the outdoor gardens. It links to the stunning & expansive master bedroom, second bathroom, the separate laundry room, and an additional storage space.
Keeping in harmony with the traditional theme, the home boasts a beautiful country style kitchen featuring a mix of polished concrete benches, classic European country style hob stove, oven, rangehood and dishwasher, along with a large custom made hardwood island bench, suitable to seat the whole family.
The open plan living upstairs has been designed with the kitchen, dining and living areas combined to keep the family connected and is air conditioned and heated with a large 8kw split system. Foxtel connections are located in both living areas on both levels.
Upstairs is the perfect study area. Fitted with a double sized built-in desk and floating shelving surrounded by beautiful leadlight windows overlooking the stunning & tranquil yard and French doors opening to the back deck. This well thought out area is the perfect home office or kids study space.
The home has large open decks on three sides of the house for year-round outdoor living at any time of the day. Have your coffee taking in the sunrise of a morning on the front deck (east facing) or a wine or beer while cooking a BBQ taking in the sunset of the evening on the back deck (west facing).
Dual living possibilities make this home even more appealing with the versatility it offers. The lower level has potential to be used as its own individual 1-bedroom apartment with its own external access.
Marrying in perfectly with the charm of the home, "The Shiralette" is currently a separate double garage, with the potential to be fitted out into a large granny flat. It is oozing with character from top to bottom with its gorgeous country-house styled door, large patio taking advantage of all the cross breezes and brick path to the "Shiralee" - main house.
The large block consisting of 2,564sqm has plenty of room for whatever your dream requirements are. Need space to park trailers, boats, and caravans? The side access has you covered. Want to add a shed, pool or even room to grow your own veggies? There is plenty of room to do all three! There is also a large chicken coop to collect your own free-range eggs from. The block is run off mains power and water with a bio cycle septic system.
