Exceptional Inner City Living
This classic Paddington colonial exudes the charm and character of a bygone era and has been faithfully restored to accentuate its period features and create a home of warmth and sophistication.
The attractive facade features a heritage colour scheme and two front verandas with classic wrought iron balustrading. The entrance foyer on the lower level features an imposing red cedar staircase which was salvaged from the former Empire Hotel in Toowoomba. The foyer sets the scene for the rest of the interior and gives you a sense of the impeccable style.
Also on the lower level is the elegant, open plan living and dining area with open fireplace, air conditioning and French doors leading to the front veranda. Bi fold doors lead from the living area onto the large, covered rear deck which flows to the level, rear garden and sparkling in ground pool – garden and pool maintenance included.. Servicing the lifestyle and entertaining areas is the gourmet galley style kitchen with six burner Ilve oven, pressed metal splashback, large pantry, and service to the rear deck.
The upper level is the original section of the home and accommodates five bedrooms, one with built in wardrobes. The spacious master suite features a walk-in wardrobe, classically styled ensuite and private balcony taking in city glimpses and sweeping suburban vista including the former Sisters of Mercy convent on Given Terrace. The other bedrooms are serviced by the family sized bathroom with claw foot bath and separate shower.
Other features of this timeless classic include large laundry room, powder room, double carport and secure storage area. Period details throughout the home include VJ walls, polished timber floors, high ceilings, stained glass windows and doors and heritage light fittings throughout.
The location is outstanding with Latrobe Terrace and Rosalie Village within walking distance. Also within easy reach are quality schools, childcare, transport, Woolworths, Caxton St, The Barracks, Suncorp Stadium and the CBD.
This beautifully restored inner-city home presents a rare opportunity to purchase a sizeable family home in a central Paddington location. A thoughtful and detailed renovation by the owners has been a labour of love and has culminated in a home of enduring quality and appeal that you and your family will appreciate.
