A fine example of a classical Ipswich colonial property, complete with its high-pitched pyramid roof and stepped wrap around veranda. This beautiful home was built around the turn of the century (dated at 1905) and proudly showcases the unique style and characteristics that Ipswich is now famous for.
From its imposing street appeal, attention to detail and the clever touches for a more modern and comfortable lifestyle, this is a fine example of how our cities treasures should be restored. This property has undergone some significant restoration work in recent years and being professionally done it retains its traditional charm and character but with a touch of practically and with its “blue chip” location it would suit a smart buyer with a passion for the past
Sleeping arrangements are numerous with 4 large bedrooms 3 with built-ins (two with a/conditioning and 3 have French-doors out to the veranda). The second walk-thru bathroom is very impressive in size, featuring stand alone bath and huge shower, which could be easily sectioned off as an ensuite if desired. The modern kitchen works in well with the age of the property but has all the modern touches we all seek out, like 900mm dual fuel cooker, stone bench tops, dishwasher, and a very handy servery to the massive rear entertaining deck. The soaring 11ft ceilings, honey pine flooring and natural colour scheme also adds to the appeal.
The entertaining ability of this property is also enviable, the recently constructed rear deck (approx. 7.5x 7m) offers the perfect private place to relax or entertain your friends while admiring the sizable back yard. With the window servery giving easy access back to the kitchen for access to all those much-needed entertaining items.
Although this property is not heritage listed is does play an important part in the picturesque street scape in one of Ipswich’s most sought after suburbs of Eastern Heights. (Have a drive around and be amazed at the other local iconic homes all with-in a few kilometers). Sitting proudly on a fenced 1012 sqm block with easy parking on the hard parking stand at the front or park in the powered 9x7metre shed. Plenty of room to still build a rear carport if the shed is needed for handyman stuff. This property has undergone some major improvements over the years and would have to be one of the best examples of how a property should be restored. These improvements include a new roof and new stumps, so the big-ticket items have already been completed.
