SOLD BY ZIGGY BALE
This four-bedroom, two-bathroom high-set home sits on a roomy 726sqm block in leafy Stafford Heights, 8km north of Brisbane CBD.
This stately property takes pride of place on historic Radar Hill. The wide driveway through the impeccably manicured front lawn leads to an under-home three-car garage. Beautiful trees frame the neatly presented frontage, with stairs leading up to the rustically cobbled front patio, which affords views as far as the airport, Port of Brisbane and across the bay to Moreton Island.
The spacious living and dining areas echo the genteel elegance of a bygone era, with plush carpets underfoot throughout the home and feature walls in each room. Majestic windows flood the common living spaces with light, leafy views and thoughtful lighting casts an ambient nighttime glow.
The lounge area flows through double sliding doors onto the rear patio where, overlooking lush green rolling lawns, stunning sunrises and sunsets are set against magnificent views of Mt. Coot-tha and the Taylor range. City glimpses are visible through the trees on one side, while the treetop-level placement puts you at eye level with possums and abundant birdlife.
The property boasts excellent climate control, with its hilltop stance ensuring alternating bay and southeasterly breezes keep the air fresh and flowing.
The kitchen has the heart of a classic farmhouse kitchen with a clean, modern countenance. Fresh white walls offset rich timber cupboards and filigreed branch views from the window above the washing up area bring the outside in.
The main bathroom and separate toilet are both immaculate, neatly painted and tiled and echoing the dove grey theme of the living areas.
The roomy main bedroom, with floor to ceiling windows, boasts a stunning mosaic-patterned feature wall and both the second and third bedrooms are of good size – all carpeted and with ceiling fans.
Downstairs, the beautifully appointed open-plan granny flat with air-con, kitchen and bathroom is an ideal haven for houseguests or live-in relatives. A neat laundry and generous storage area set next to the internal garage complete the picture.
The entire home boasts modern security screens and has proven to be completely waterproof over the years. Two water tanks set to the side of the backyard are an added bonus.
Close to public transport, schools, medical and shopping facilities, this beautifully restored grand dame awaits the family who appreciate fine country-style living close to the city.
