Country Inspired Inner City Abode

As featured in Australian Country Magazine, this charming home spans across a north facing 610sqm lot, and will leave you feeling like you are miles from civilisation, and yet you are within walking distance to schools, shops, and less than 5km to the CBD.

Built in the early 1900s, the original workers cottage has been meticulously and painstakingly renovated & transformed over the last two years. No expense has been spared, as evidenced by the 100 year old reclaimed timber flooring, the 60-100 year old bricks, and the island bench in the kitchen which is a late 1800s Dutch shop counter.

The light filled living room is focused around the wood burning fireplace; just perfect for this time of year. A graceful timber arch is all that separates this area from the dining room, which features VJ's, period lighting, recycled bricks from Sydney, and the golden hoop pine floor. There is also a separate living area at the front of the home, a perfect space to hide away & read a book.

The bespoke Shaker kitchen has been designed to capture the early morning sunlight. With marble benches & custom cabinetry, the kitchen features a farmhouse sink, enormous butler's pantry with a second dishwasher, and a freestanding upright cooker by Falcon, the world's oldest cooker manufacturer - having invented the range cooker in the UK in 1830.

Accommodation consists of three large bedrooms; the master with an almost all white ensuite, decorated with a subway brick tile pattern & reclaimed appointments. In the same style, the main bathroom is adjacent to bedrooms two & three, and a separate powder room is conveniently located on the lower level. For those that require more space, there may be the option to add another large bedroom or two smaller rooms.

Separated from the main residence by the covered terrace, a usable yard, ozone pool, and of course the vegetable patch, you will find a Hamptons-meets-country-style barn. Originally designed as a man-cave, this versatile space features custom-made barn doors, kitchenette, bathroom, and a delightful white wooden ladder leading up to a loft-style fourth bedroom. The options are endless here, including a teenagers retreat, granny flat, pool house, Airbnb, art studio, or guest accommodation so sublime that your friends may never leave!

Despite the old world charm, you will still enjoy all the modern conveniences here such as double car accommodation, ducted air-conditioning, reverse osmosis water filter, solar panels, and two water tanks. There is even a chicken coop in the backyard!

Parents and children will delight in the fact this home is located in one of Brisbane's most sought after education belts, with Rainworth State School just a short stroll away.

Your inspection is simply a must as properties such as this are rare and will not last.
