According to local legend this residence was the original homestead for the area. Given the property commands the highest site on the estate this is likely to be fact.
Today, the gleaming timber floors, fireplace, high ceilings and decorative plasterwork ensure it still retains its old-world charm and character albeit in a modern setting.
All rooms, particularly the bedrooms, are large in scale and flooded with natural light.
The kitchen is well appointed with ample cabinetry, a central bank of cupboards, 3 sinks, hard-wearing granite benchtops, a large gas oven and stove. You can be setting up for a party and have a group of happy helpers around you without falling over one another, or preparing a family meal while supervising the children doing their homework. What a great floorplan!
A breezeway adjacent to the kitchen and family room opens out to the poolside deck to the north-east and the garden opposite to merge the master bedroom suite with the outdoor entertaining zones and the main house. Such are the dimensions of this breezeway that an 8 seater dining table cannot overwhelm the space.
A front parlour complete with cosy fireplace is connected to the more relaxed family room by French doors.
The sheltered, poolside entertaining deck is used almost constantly. With its dining area, poolside lounge and large wall-mounted TV it is not a surprise that the owner tends to be spend the majority of the time out here. Another bonus are the amazing views to the hinterland that slowly turn to a sea of sparkling lights in the evenings. This is lifestyle with a capital L.
Convenience? The location is ideal.
A choice of shopping centres, schools, sporting fields and community facilities are all within walking distance.
The huge Chermside Shopping Centre, the Hypermarket and Aquatic Centre with its heated lap pool, water park, lagoon, and waterslides are all just a few minutes' drive.
A few hundred metres away, at the end of the street, Marchant Park is a mecca for cricket teams, home for the Aspley Guides and Aspley Scouts and a popular picnic area with wood and electric barbecues, playgrounds and fitness stations. It even has an off-leash exercise area for your 4-footed friends.
The library is but a 20 minutes' walk and the local rugby league and AFL football clubs are not too far away either.
If long distance travel is part of your lifestyle, the Brisbane international airport is only 5km or 20 minutes away. For those who commute locally, why not leave the car at home? A bus stop to the city is just outside the front door. Howzat for convenience?
