No Open Home Saturday - Character Family Home with Relax Mode'
- 4 Beds
- 2 Baths
- 2 Cars
Winding down to relaxation mode' becomes second nature in this tastefully renovated Queensland character home built originally in the 1920s. The open plan layout features welcome Japanese influences here and there, lending a light and easy feel to the spacious living areas, inside and out. A beautifully designed traditional oriental garden and rockery with flowing brook and Koi pond, home to some inquisitive goldfish, is a delightful compliment to the covered courtyard. Adjoining, there's ample level lawn space for younger children to play.
Upon entering, there's a big covered verandah which takes advantage of the elevated position looking out over rooftops. Timber framed bi-folds open wide to reveal the very generously sized lounge and dining spaces - classical high ceilings and aged pine floorboards are retained. The partially separated renovated kitchen has a functional breakfast bench, loads of cupboard space, stainless IAG appliances and is equipped with town gas.
The hallway to the bedrooms features an innovative translucent wall, reminiscent of the rice paper screens in traditional Japanese homes, allowing natural soft light to filter in. The master bedroom is cleverly designed incorporating a walk-in robe and distinctive half-wall divider to isolate the functional bathroom. Screened glass louvres compliment the oriental theme and allow ample airflow. The second bathroom, also with contrasting dark/light palette has a skylight allowing natural light to bathe the room.
The convenience of location is a large part of why so many families choose to live in this part of Taringa. Just 300m to Taringa Railway Station and Taringa Shopping Precinct and 150m to the bus stop, yet the street carries very little traffic. The Taringa Playground Park is just 100m away around the corner, complete with the usual shaded child's play equipment, basketball court and BBQ. All schooling, shopping and medical needs are all within a short walk or drive.
