Melissa Goudge is proud to present a truly wonderful opportunity to purchase a much loved, gorgeous Queensland family home, in Kalinga, for the first time in 45 years.
Situated in the heart of Kalinga, rarely is a property of this calibre brought to market with so much potential and fantastic location. This unique, dual living Queenslander was originally built for the first owners as a wedding gift in 1915. Which, in itself, speaks volumes of the core values this property has brought to the only two owners who've had the pleasure of this idyllic family lifestyle.
Situated on prestigious Park Road, enjoy what this area has to offer. The local parks such as Melrose Park or the surrounding Kedron Brook parklands are within walking distance, perfect for going for a jog, bike riding or taking your dog for a relaxing walk.
Set on a unique, beautiful, east/south facing, 810m2 corner block, this home offers endless opportunities to an astute buyer. Just move in as it is, renovate, put in a pool and/or make this home a bigger and better masterpiece. Possibilities to subdivide also offer an investment opportunity to a creative mind! (Need to apply for Brisbane Council approval.)
When you enter, be welcomed by the gracious morning sun and an outside area perfect for morning breakfast. Typical of the graceful Queenslander style, be impressed with the traditional leadlight doors and windows presenting themselves on either side of the entry, the bedrooms and throughout the upper section of the home.
The upstairs living space consists of the formal lounge, sitting room and dining areas that are cognizant of the era this home was built. Leading you to the recently renovated, well-designed modern kitchen, keeping with the character of the home by incorporating the wood stove in the recess. A clever design with all the modern conveniences you can expect such as Stainless Steel appliances and lots of storage.
The kitchen and large deck provide the hub of the home and face toward the back gardens. This massive deck is perfect for entertaining and has a great ambiance, especially with the classic grape vine encapsulating the space.
The Master Bedroom is generous in size and recently carpeted, as has been the second main bedroom. A third bedroom is currently used as a study however this is also a generous size, perfect for family.
The master bathroom was renovated last year in a traditional style and very spacious with a separate toilet
