Nestled in the heart of one of Hawthorne's most beloved tree-lined streets, this reimagined Queenslander is a seamless fusion of heritage charm and contemporary style. Designed by award-winning architects Shaun Lockyer and Karen Ognibene, this renovated Queenslander demands to be seen.
Surrounded by other well-established residences, the home boasts impeccable street appeal. With white picket fencing, an attractive covered front timber veranda and an old-world Queenslander facade, the extraordinary property will also impress with its verdant, well-planted front yard, dotted with blooming hedges and beautiful frangipani tree.
From the moment you step through the property's aqua-hued door and enter the home's heritage build you will feel utterly refreshed. Capturing both south-east and north-east breezes, the property features frosted louvered windows, ceiling fans and high clerestory windows throughout. This, coupled with Panasonic split-system air-conditioning, makes the airy abode one you will love year-round.
Following the entry's hallway, you will find three well-sized main bedrooms; two include French doors that open out to the front verandah. Steps from here is a cosy lounge or family area with sliding black-out panels that can shut the front of the home off from the rest of the residence. Adjoining this light-filled space is a stylish main bathroom with a large shower and bath.
Stepping downstairs, a spacious living and dining area greets you. A remarkable eight-metre-high void over the lounge area provides plenty of natural light throughout, as does an oversized glass sliding door that opens out to the outdoor entertainment area. Making this ground level the ultimate entertainer's haven, a connecting stylish kitchen provides everything you need to host a sensational gathering. Avid cooks will appreciate details like the wide ILVE oven with gas cooktop, mirrored splashback, Solar DOM LG convection microwave, stone benchtops, timber cabinetry and large breakfast bar.
Allowing seamless transition between the indoors and the outdoors, a paved entertainment area off the living space invites you to share a barbecue with guests or simply unwind with a cool drink. Combined with the property's attached fully-fenced grassed yard, this al fresco area with a ceiling fan is where you will want to gather family and friends.
Promising to be popular all-year-round, the Steven Clegg designed yard features a 20-metre in-ground heated magnesium lap pool which is completely visible from the kitchen - great for keeping an eye on children. Making this outdoor area feel like a private oasis are details like retractable awnings, high fences and soaring verbena hedges.
Inside and situated on the residence's fourth split level, a well-appointed study or office is ideal for those wanting to work from home. Overlooking the kitchen, the area is situated on a mezzanine and is filled with natural light.
Flowing from here is an elegant parent's retreat. Set away from the other bedrooms, this luxurious space includes a walk-through robe with a wall of mirrored built-in robes, plus a generous master bedroom with rear yard views. Creating an 'exclusive retreat' atmosphere, a glass sliding door opens to reveal a Juliet balcony over the ground-level outdoor entertainment area. An open-plan ensuite off the hallway completes this opulent space, complete with a large freestanding bath, a dual vanity with stone benchtops and a lavish dual-head shower.
On the home's lower split level and accessible via the kitchen is a separate laundry, powder room and linen cupboard. There is also a dual secure carport with a sizeable raised storage area. Other notable features include a unique cubby house, garden beds with a watering system, a 7,500-litre rainwater tank and a six-kilowatt solar electricity system.
Balancing heritage appeal with modern sophistication and functionality, this spectacular abode has plenty to offer. Owners will also value additional touches like timber floors on the third and fourth split levels, roller blinds, ceiling fans, ornate breezeways, VJ walls, dimmer lights, timber staircases and vast amounts of storage.
With all the hallmarks of a treasured family home, this ideally located residence is only moments from leafy Hawthorne Park, renowned dining hotspots, a cinema and public transport options. The Brisbane River is also streets away, allowing you to easily catch a CityCat from the nearby Hawthorne Ferry Terminal into Brisbane's CBD.
This exceptional property falls within the highly sought-after Morningside State School and Balmoral State High School catchment areas, while prestigious private schools like Lourdes Hill College, Saints Peter and Paul's School, Anglican Church Grammar School and Cannon Hill Anglican College are just a short drive away.
