This delightful house (not for sale) has been added to my favourites list. Located in Red Hill, it completely fulfils the description of ‘charming’. It was built in the 1920s and has been renovated and kept all of the period details alive. I’m talking about a central arched hallway, detailed fretwork, stained glass windows, timber flooring and a large, family friendly verandah. It looks completely unassuming from the front – a wonderful example of the humble facade of a Queenslander. As a result, I love it.
Once you step inside, the exquisite detail shines through. While high ceilings dominate and this view from the dining room into the kitchen and family room makes my heart happy, it’s the simple things like the VJ walls and the arches that have the biggest impact on this room.
The galley kitchen flows through to the outside with servery windows which makes for easy entertaining. I love the bifold windows that open up and let the breeze in and all the kitchen smells out!
The rear verandah is accessible via the family room and main bedroom.
The windows, archway and VJs in this photo are perfection combined.
Also, isn’t this beautiful?!
The rear verandah is large enough for entertaining and is completely breathtaking. I can imagine my kids sitting up on those stools after school, having a snack and doing their homework. Afterwards, we would eat together out on the verandah.
Finally the photo that gave me all the feelings. It kinda reminds me of Raffles in Singapore. Don’t you love the arch combined with the gabled roof! And the white lace look and feel of the fretwork combined with the lattice gate and the touches of greenery. Perfection in a photo.
