Today we are taking a peek into another Red Hill porch and gable, a very common and popular style of Queenslander. While this two level Queenslander is deceiving from the front (as a lot of Queenslanders are; remember this three story Queenslander in Highgate Hill?), don’t be fooled, this house is large enough for a family and even a teenager or two!
From the street, the facade is very simple – a neutral grey exterior colour with white trim / details highlights. Since I love the neutral look it makes this house especially appealing in my eyes.
Two sets of french doors open up onto the porch and as this house is typical porch-and-gable style, it has a two room frontage. Seems like the sweetest little style.
Sitting in the living room and looking towards the front of the house is the view of the next photo and it really shows off this house beautifully. This is a lovely room with so much light streaming through the french doors and all of the windows on the side of the house. The bedroom is off to the left and the stained glass windows are a lovely sight to see.
A bedroom at the front of the house is decorated simply for sale.
The house has been set up as a dual living space as a renovation has added a full self-contained teenagers or guest retreat downstairs. This floor plan makes sense if you have older children living at home – it gives them their own space. It would also be a great set up if you wanted to rent it out occasionally.
This is the view from the downstairs living room into the second kitchen.
Upstairs there is a deck that overlooks the suburb of Red Hill. The elevation of this block would catch the breezes and would be a lovely place to eat breakfast in the morning with a good cup of coffee.
The floor plan shows the split living design with separate living spaces on both levels.
This house is not for sale. It was sold for $1,050,00 in 2010 by Judi O’Dea from Space Property Agents and the property link is here.
