This early 1900s colonial Queenslander is located in Virginia and is for sale (offers over $799,000). It’s a four bedroom, two bathroom home on 810sqm.

While it is located on a main road (Sandgate Road, Virginia), the colour is bold and evokes a sense of calm. I love the symmetry of this house, the gentle curves of the roof and, as always, the white picket fence. It looks and feels like home.

Virginia Queensland exterior

The verandah that is lined with french doors, the white paint is a great contrast against the shades of blue. The french doors bring back the memories of living in our rental home in Ashgrove. The two front bedrooms of our home had french doors that led out to a verandah that overlooked a huge mango tree. Even to this day, some 15 years later, I still remember sitting out on that dusty verandah, watching and waiting for those green skins to turn into the colour of summer.

The front yard is neat and tidy with lush grass and plenty of overhanging shade.

The inside has the glorious high ceilings that I miss every single day.
