Who doesn't love a corner position? Particularly when the adjacent street is a quiet cul-de-sac used only by a handful of locals. What strikes you immediately is the privacy this home and enclave offers, within walking distance to some of the area's best eateries, river walks, shop-till-you-drop locale and convenient public transport.
You could easily miss the main entry to this house (which is on Patterson Street). Behind the lattice doors is a vestibule space which takes you from the hurry of the city to the tranquillity of this house - a transition filled with plant life including a water feature that gurgles away... a great space to pop off the shoes and welcome your guests...
In the main living area your eye is drawn to the serene garden, with its abundance of native fauna, local stone (Brisbane Tuff), exotics and flowering plant life that...well... sparkles! Considering you're in the heart of Brisbane's CBD this almost defines city life...but that's what is so special here - it's a home with it's very own rainforest!
This main living level includes two spacious bedrooms, a newly renovated bathroom and laundry, the original front verandah, the generous kitchen and external alfresco area. This outdoor space is private with its very own BBQ, fridge and cupboards - perfect for entertaining all year around!
Upstairs is the master suite and what a space! Spacious, with it's very own office area, a huge en-suite (with underfloor heating) and walk-in-robe. I love how you could literally jump out of bed, brush the teeth, pay some bills or shoot off some emails and then jump back into to bed with your favourite book! Bliss!
Downstairs is the double car lock-up with a huge amount of storage; entry is off Kent street. From the garage, internal stairs lead you to the front verandah of the original cottage, then to the two bedrooms and the main living area... a perfect and easy flow.
I love the two olive trees situated on Kent street which frame the home... the mature gardens that literally surround this abode are perfect for privacy. They soften the home and provide shade in those hotter days.
A perfect home in a perfect location!
