House Sold - BARDON QLD


Nestled in a quiet and exclusive pocket of leafy Bardon, this delightful post-war cottage will capture your heart with its character and charm.

From the polished timber floors, double-hung windows and ornate ceilings, to the serene light-filled interior and relaxing outdoor spaces, this beautiful home provides easy living, room to move and a relaxing lifestyle just a few kilometres from the Brisbane CBD.

With beautiful green space, the bustling shopping precincts of Paddington Central and Rosalie Village, and highly coveted state and private schools, just a stones throw away, it’s easy to see why leafy Bardon is such a desirable Brisbane location for all families.

This charming home provides the opportunity for any fortunate buyer to just move in and enjoy everything this residence has to offer, or astute buyers may also consider the opportunity to further develop this property’s potential by raising or expanding the existing home.

On arrival, you at first may feel you have been transported into a storybook with the lush landscaped lawns, white picket fence and rustic stairs leading to the front porch … a serene spot for a quiet morning coffee.

Upon entry into the home, your eye is immediately drawn down the breezy hallway to the foliage beyond, giving a hint of what is to come at the leafy and private rear of the home.

The front 3 bedrooms are beautifully light-filled and feature freshly polished timber floors, built-in wardrobes and ceiling fans.

Beyond the bedrooms you will find the main living and dining areas … the heart of the home.

The separate dining and living spaces give a hint of formality, while still remaining connected to the country-style, central kitchen. With plenty of bench-space and stainless steel appliances, the well-positioned kitchen is spacious enough for more than one cook and a wonderful space for the family to gather around the breakfast bar.

The main bathroom is conveniently located between the living room and main bedroom.
Generous in size, it features a large corner bath with shower and linen press.

Stacker doors connect the living spaces to the expansive rear timber deck that provides beautiful leafy garden views and a generous entertaining area to be used all year round. Lattice screening provides privacy and the elevation and surrounding trees give a feeling of serenity and calm. Imagine having your morning coffee here, listening to nothing but rustling leaves and birdsong … pure bliss!

Downstairs living spaces provide multiple options for use and feature a second full bathroom, kitchenette, living area and storage rooms. With security screens and a separate entry through pretty French doors, it would make a perfect teen retreat, a space for guests, kids play area or even a home office.

The laundry is adjacent and has enough room to store garden equipment for the green thumb.

A second outdoor living space on this lower level is the ideal vantage point from which to watch the kids play or just relax at the end of the day and admire all your hard work in the garden.
