Stylish renovations throughout make this unique character home one you can move straight into and enjoy. It features an open plan modern eat-in kitchen with a near new freestanding electric oven and stove. The striking contemporary floor tiles lead you directly through to the living room, where you'll enjoy views of the lush scenery through the glass sliding door, which leads onto the lower deck. The upstairs deck provides comfortable shade from above, and both have been freshly updated with premium quality paint. Tucked in behind the family room is a bright office space, lit from the large window which brings the pretty front garden into the serene setting. An ideal space to work from home, or set up as a nursery. Also cleverly located on the lower level are a separate toilet, a European laundry, including a sink behind closed doors, and a large under-stairwell pantry and additional storage space. The living room and office have each been fitted with 2x USB ports hardwired into power points, meaning your device is only ever a cord-length away from being recharged.
The solid timber staircase leads you up to the second story where you'll appreciate the striking high pavillion ceilings that have been recently painted in a fresh white finish. The freshly renovated bathroom has been finished in a smart contemporary tile to match the first floor and includes a shower and vanity. The chatter of birds will greet you each morning through the large glass sliding door that sweeps out from the main bedroom. With nothing but trees in this easterly view, you'll find your morning routine frees you to embrace the sun and the sounds of the forest life in your natural state. The deck catches beautiful breezes, and has a wall-mounted clothes airer that folds away neatly to the external wall. A private little nook has been created with the addition of a foliage screen, which creates a romantic evening retreat, which glitters magically with twinkling fairy lights.
An inner house yard fence around the rear of the home defines a more immediate area for your children and pets to enjoy straight off the lower verandah. This area also contains the 4x3m storage shed for all your gear and storage needs, or set up as a studio to work from in this pristine location. On the balance of the block is the 5000 gallon rainwater tank which is plumbed to the home, and a further garden shed is situated behind this at the end of the concrete driveway. A two-carpark area sits adjacent to the entry of your home. There is plenty of room on the block to extend the home, add another shed, park the trailer, boat, or caravan, completing this lifestyle package.
Representing great value for this lush, leafy surrounded 911m2 of land, positioned so close to town, this is a must inspect home with a difference; an opportunity to purchase your desired lifestyle, like that of a Montville or Maleny escape, with the added luxury of Toowoomba prices.
