SOLD! by Cheyenne the Queenslander Expert

This classic Queenslander was a beloved family home from 1971 until last year but is now empty and needs someone to give her a little TLC to bring her back to her former beauty. The essence of beauty is good bone structure, and this lovely old home certainly has that. With a new roof, and in good structural condition she is ripe for a nip, tuck, and makeover to give her a new lease of life.

Built in 1947 with craftsmanship and high quality materials, as a War Service home, she still possesses beautiful period features such as the original casement windows, polished timber floors, an ornate plaster ceiling with decorated cornices, and an art-deco style ceiling rose in the lounge room. At some stage the house was updated with false walls and ceiling, but these can be removed to revert back to the original high ceilings and VJ timber walls which make Queenslanders so attractive.

The weatherboard home on concrete stumps has three generously sized bedrooms, one bathroom, with a separate toilet, and a closed in sunroom at the front entrance of the house which would make a lovely study or Home Office. The period kitchen is large for the age of the home and retains all the period cabinetry which could be restored to make a delightfully Retro style; or remove and renovate this and the bathroom to modernise the home.

The house already has great curb appeal, surrounded by palms and flaming Poinciana trees, with a gabled roof and casement windows that typify Queenslanders, but tastefully renovated she would make an historic character filled home for a new family.

Apart from the potential of the home for renovation it has a great location, directly opposite Stockland Shopping Centre, on a lovely quiet street filled with beautiful homes, in the fast-trending suburb of Earlville. Public transport, private and public schools, and shopping are a short stroll away, and it's only a few minutes' drive to the CBD.

- 3 bedrooms
- 1 bathroom
- 1 tandem lock up garage with access to the back yard
- Large useable area underneath the house
- Large private backyard
- New roof, replaced in 2011
- 546m2 block

This is a great opportunity to buy a piece of history, which can easily be restored to her former beauty. Any modern home can be built again, but you cannot replicate the style and history of a Queenslander home.
