Last week I wrote about my friend’s renovated Queenslander in Norman Park, that was on the ‘wrong side’ of the tracks. In this case, literally the train line that runs through Norman Park. So with this in mind, I looked for the next house to be on the so-called right side of the tracks and I stumbled across this little cutie in Norman Park.
According to the real estate listing, this little house is located the highly sort after Poets Corner, just off Norman Avenue. It’s a renovated porch and gable Queenslander with five bedrooms. From the front, she is gorgeous and straight out of a Queenslander fairytale.
This is the view looking towards the front of the house. The interior colour scheme is neutral with white walls and grey trim. A nice alternative to the very popular grey / beige walls with white trim. Aren’t the floorboards lovely?
The formal lounge room is at the front of the house and flows out onto the front verandah. This room has been carpeted, which is a little unusual in a Queenslander. I guess it makes the room more formal but I would still prefer the wooden floorboards with the use of rugs for warmth and cosiness.
The second living room (or TV room as we call it in our house) leads out onto the verandah.
Same room, looking back into the kitchen. I really like the grey trim.
The bedrooms feel like a home – they are impeccably furnished and are in line with the general tones of the house.
Isn’t this verandah great? I love the bifold doors that open the space right up and allow for that indoor / outdoor living that Queensland is famous for.
This house is located in Norman Park and is not for sale. It was sold by Paula Peace of Place – Bulimba in December 2017 for $990,000. The real estate listing is here.
