Nestled on a sprawling 1012m2 block in leafy Taringa, this quintessential Queenslander will stop your heart!

A peek over the pretty white picket fence gives you a glimpse of the graceful wrap-around verandas, the tropical gardens alive with birdsong, and hints at the idyllic Queensland lifestyle you could be living in this suburban paradise.

Entry is via the upper level verandah, which has views over the lush front garden. Three of the original bedrooms open out onto this verandah through French doors, offering each room a private, elevated retreat from the world.

Down a central hall you will find the formal living room, boasting soaring ceilings, VJ walls, decorative archways, and original timber floors.

This hall then opens out to the heart of the home, a spacious open-plan living dining space that flows through to a spectacular entertaining deck overlooking lush, low maintenance gardens and lawns.

The light bright kitchen has a country feel, with it’s enchanting soft hues of blue, and crisp white retractable windows and servery that open it up to the expansive entertaining deck on one side, and the lush garden greenery on the other.

This charming kitchen boasts a grand freestanding 900mm oven and range hood, 6 burner gas cook top, stone benchtops, walk in pantry, room for a 4-seater table and chairs, and is finished to perfection with a beautiful pressed metal splashback.

Also on this level is a modern family bathroom with a generously sized linen press.

Downstairs you will find the grand master bedroom that opens out on 2 sides through French doors to the lower verandah … a perfect spot for morning coffee amongst the trees and the birds!

This bedroom features a walk in robe and ensuite bathroom, and even room for a sofa and occasional chairs as well…an enticing private retreat from the world.

The fifth bedroom of the home is also on this level and opens out to the expansive lower level deck and gardens … yet another beautiful spot to sit and enjoy the garden or watch children happily play.

The laundry on this level opens out onto this deck and is multi functional, offering a toilet and shower. This set up so close to the 5th bedroom off the deck is perfect for a teenager’s retreat, guest quarters, or extended family living. There is also an extra study room and storage on this level, increasing the functionality of this very versatile floor plan and layout.
