'Koala' c.1910 on 810m2 in Prime Location

'Koala' is a stunning family home on 810sqm over 2 lots in a quiet, central Paddington location. The home was built around 100 years ago, and its present owners have loved living here for the last 28 years. It has been meticulously and sympathetically renovated and extended.

The home is surrounded by a private natural rainforest retreat but if kids are part of the picture, it would be easy to lay turf in the back yard to allow room for play.

It presents with undeniable street appeal, and a quintessential return verandah. Step inside though the stained glass entrance and you will be captivated: so many original features such as decorative fretwork, VJ walls, gleaming timber flooring, and beautiful pressed metal ceilings adorned with exquisite pendant lighting.

This very livable home is light and bright, with excellent cross circulation of breezes, and high end fittings and fixtures. You will see that this house flows exceptionally well from inside to out, from one area to the next, with a verandah never far away. Overall, the effect is one of a soothing and tranquil oasis.

You will find 2 double bedrooms in the original part of the house, both with French doors to the verandah. The living space consists of an elegant lounge and dining room with a traditional mantlepiece and Jetmaster wood burning fire.

Towards the rear is the kitchen and a sunny second living room that adjoins a large rear entertainer's deck with the subtropical garden providing a beautiful, private vista. The kitchen offers Tasmanian oak cabinetry, European stainless steel appliances, with excellent storage and expansive granite benchtops.

Downstairs is the serene master bedroom, with built in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. There is also a second double bedroom on this level, and another living room that can be utilised as a playroom, media room, or simply a quite space. Fantastic under-house storage is accessible from this room. At the rear is a tandem lock-up garage with large workshop, and a laundry to one side. This garage will be a dream for anyone with big toys, or a hobby that takes up space.

Come outside to the pool in a lush natural tropical garden setting – you'll think you're on permanent holiday. The house has been re-roofed, re-wired, and painted inside and out. All downstairs windows have security grills, and split system air-conditioning is installed where necessary.

The location is premium. It is an easy walk to local cafés and Paddington Central, with the CBD only a few kms away, and a bus stop close by. The home is in the catchment for Ithaca Creek Primary School and Kelvin Grove SC and many private schools.
