“Self-sufficient Convenience with a Cozy Charm”
Set on a large 647m2 block and close to all your essential amenities, this charming post-war style timber home has more to offer than just its good looks!
On arrival you will be greeted by the two-space carport at the end of the driveway, which provides not only a clever use of space, but also added street-front privacy. A set of neatly tucked away stairs carry you up to the house, where upon entry, the spacious living and dining room combo welcome you in.
This open-plan area seamlessly flows into the kitchen, showing that this cozy home embraces the importance of togetherness and socialising. The kitchen makes clever use of space with the modern kitchen island providing additional dining space, and is filled with natural light thanks to the two large windows.
With one opening onto the living and dining area and the other two down the hallway, we come to the three generously-sized bedrooms - just like the kitchen, each room takes advantage of the abundance of natural light and green surrounds/outlooks..
There is a great sense of openness and flow in each bedroom, the light coloured polished hardwood floors and light colour scheme present throughout this home. This is carried over to the bathroom, where clean lines and modern fixtures add to this feeling of openness, and the white colour scheme with pops of colour from the sandstone coloured accents adds an extra layer of charm.
Like the light colour scheme, open-plan flow and clever use of natural light that make this home perfectly suited to Brisbane's great climate, this home goes one step further in utilising what nature has to offer. You'll never run out of power with the 5.5Kw solar panels which provide more energy than standard usage, and which supply water to the toilet and laundry. These two features make this home carbon-positive' - saving you money while doing great things for the environment!
Heading back to the hub of the house and through the kitchen, we arrive at the outdoor area. From the kitchen, you step out onto the huge undercover deck, which provides the ultimate outdoor entertainment and living space. To the right and down a few steps is the laundry and even an additional bathroom, with ample space provided in each, saving space in the main part of the house!
We are then led to the massive fully-fenced backyard, which features a pre-installed playground for the kids! Additionally, a shipping container that has been converted into a multipurpose space at the end of the yard provides additional potential to this versatile home. If all this space isn't convincing enough, a large detached storage room saves you even more space inside, leaving more room for the important stuff - you and your loved ones.
With this home, the good things aren't just contained within the property, as its location provides easy access to all of life's essentials. When it comes to shopping you're spoiled for choice, with Westfield Garden City and Westfield Carindale only a short distance away, and Mount Gravatt Plaza Shopping Centre providing a great option for everyday shopping needs. Additionally, local shops and cafes on nearby Carrara Street are great for leisurely shopping and avoiding the crowds, and easy access to local parks are great for when the kids need to burn up some energy.
This home's location also provides access to great educational facilities, falling into the catchment area of the highly sought-after Cavendish Road State High School. For higher education, Mount Gravatt TAFE and Griffith University are nearby as well. Finally, this home allows for easy travel beyond the local area, with nearby access to both the M1 and the M3.
Whether you're after a convenient location, self-sufficiency, or spacious family-friendliness, this home has all this and more. Don't miss out on the chance to call this charming rare find your own!
