Sweet emotion, ideal location, enticing opportunity
One would be forgiven for being swept away in the imagery conjured up by this home constructed near the time of integration of the suburb into the Greater Brisbane Council (1925 though constructed in 1930). The interwar years saw a horse-drawn bus and tram service via the Breakfast Creek bridge to the city replaced by an electric tram terminating at the end of Racecourse Road. This has always been a suburb where aristocracy and piety mingle and in this home too we see that prospect with its humble construction on generous 405 square metre block.
From its north facing position the 3 bedroom home stands proudly and privately with louvered windows filtering the all-day sun for comfort in winter and summer alike. 3 generous bedrooms with 16.92 square metre master and 14.85 square meter second bedroom, and third bedroom or study 11.1 square metre (3m x 3.7m) still large by today’s standards. The kitchen and bathroom have been recently renovated and are at once highly functional and unobtrusive in their styling and will not age. The lounge is open plan with the galley style kitchen plus island bench to which both adorn the southern side of the house and overlook the lush and large backyard.
The kitchen has gas cooking, as is the homes hot water service, and a dishwasher as well as stone benchtops. There are ceiling fans throughout the homes periodically typical 2.7 metre high ceilings. Under the house enjoy parking for 2 vehicles undercover, laundry, and bathroom / powder room but with potential.
