I was doing some research on Queenslanders for a future post and I discovered that there are plenty of Queenslanders that I’ve been missing out on (which, sorry to say, means you’ve been missing out on them too). Simply because they are over the border. Well now that I’ve discovered them, it’s going to be hard to stop showing them off! Starting with a rare find – the coastal Queenslander.
A lot of these houses are located close to the beach. Can that be any more perfect? Sitting out on a Queenslander verandah on a hot summer nights and feeling the cool breezes sweeping in from the ocean.
This is the house that I posted on Friday night – a gorgeous old pre-1900 Queenslander. Sigh, isn’t she glorious!
The house is located in South Golden Beach, across the border in NSW – just 500 metres from the beach. There are lots of original features – fretwork panels, french doors that lead onto the balcony (one of my favourite features), VJ walls and wooden floorboards.
It’s a gorgeous little bungalow, two rooms wide and a veranda that wraps around three sides of the house.
This verandah is on the other side of the house and has gorgeous fretwork panels above the french doors. Dreams, people. This is what they are made of!
High ceilings dominate this room. The kitchen is completely functional, however, in a renovation, it could be turned into something spectacular. Especially with those windows that go right across the kitchen wall. I love how many doors and windows there are – the cross breezes would help to cool the house down.
Now for the bad news – this house has been sold.
The coastal Queenslander is located at 37 Peter Street, South Golden Beach, NSW 2483 and the property listing is here. It was sold by Julie-Ann Manahan of Raine & Horne Ocean Shores Brunswick Heads.
