Manoora - A Tranquil & Enchanting Cottage

Walk in the door and fall in love with this quaint 103 year old Toowong cottage. Treasured by the same family for 33 years it's now time for a new owner to enjoy living in this special home situated on a large 745m2 gently sloping block.

Manoora exemplifies the character typical of a Victorian style cottage – fretwork breezeways, beautiful original floorboards, VJ interior walls and ceilings, leadlight doors, and a gorgeous original hallway chandelier.

The home has been renovated, extended and cared for over the years and presents as a spacious family home with flexible living options.

Welcomed by a quintessential front verandah, featuring a latticed gate and balustrading and offering a quiet place to relax and enjoy the late afternoon sun.

Bedrooms are situated at the front of the home. The master bedroom is spacious, with two sets of original French doors, and features an ensuite and built in robe. There are three other double bedrooms on this level all with gorgeous French doors opening out onto the verandah. There is a central family bathroom, complete with shower and separate bath.

The living and dining areas flow together for easy entertaining, and an adjacent sitting room offers a tranquil place to enjoy some quiet time. The very functional cottage-style kitchen is centrally located and boasts lovely timber bench tops, plenty of storage and a new Bosch dishwasher. Large windows in the living rooms offer beautiful views to the lush rear garden, with established trees providing privacy and a serene vista. A cosy and private rear deck is a lovely sunny spot for breakfast.

Downstairs you will find a home office, double bedroom and second living room that opens out to paving and the delightful garden. An additional bathroom and the laundry are also on this lower level. This area could be easily adapted to be self-contained if desired.

Air conditioning and ceiling fans situated strategically throughout the home assist with cross ventilation to ensure year round comfort. Security screens are installed on all vulnerable doors and windows. A very large and secure storage area is provided downstairs, and there is a double carport conveniently at the front of the property.

This beautiful and tranquil home is merely 6kms from the CBD and in the catchment for Toowong State and Indooroopilly State High Schools, as well as many private schools. It is close to bus and train transport, Toowong Village, University of Queensland and Gower Street Park is a short stroll away.
