Boasting a coveted location footsteps from the vibrant Racecourse Road precinct, this impeccably maintained Queenslander exudes classic comfort and charm. From the gleaming hardwood floors to the ornate ceilings, tongue and groove panelled walls, picture rails, French doors and sash windows that invite in sunshine, these features pay homage to its rich history – and tug at the heartstrings. Soaring ceiling heights enhance its sense of refined grandeur too, with the floorplan promising the luxury of space. Downstairs, a sprawling living zone spills onto an expansive 52m2 alfresco deck via French bifold doors – one of two supersized outdoor areas for entertaining or relaxing. Host guests here or on the elevated 61m2 deck, set against a lush and leafy backdrop. North-facing, it’s also a dream spot to soak up soft all-day sunshine.

Entertaining amenities continue via a large kitchen with stone benchtops and 900mm 5-burner gas cooktop, complemented by separate lounge and dining zones. Parents can savour a sweet escape on this upper level too, with the layout cleverly configured for peace and privacy. A true retreat, the light-filled master suite with built-in robes and bay window is accompanied by a sunny sitting room and study (with scope to use one of these as a nursery or walk-in robe). A child’s bedroom and bathroom also feature, with downstairs hosting three final bedrooms and an elegant bathroom with traditional clawfoot bath. Internal and external staircases also link each level, plus there’s room in the shaded, secure backyard for a pool. Parking will never be an issue either, accommodating up to eight vehicles off-street (all behind secure fencing).

Enticingly, this property also comes with untapped potential. Transform the existing double garage into a self-contained 45m2 dwelling, ideal for multi-generational families or as an income stream that offsets your mortgage. Plumbing, power and building plans are already conveniently in place, paving the way for a seamless renovation (STCA). Alternatively, explore your options to retain the existing dwelling and construct two townhouses at the rear of this fully fenced 620m2 block (STCA).

Located in a highly sought-after street, it’s easy to see why this location is so coveted.
