Nestled in the heart of inner-city Bowen Hills and embracing a prime, elevated position, this exquisite Queenslander stands very proudly on a prized and rare 810m2 parcel of inner-city land.
Offering a commanding outlook over to the north-east, Hamilton, the Gateway Bridge and out west to Mt Coot-tha, stately ‘Rangeview’ enjoys an urban location second to none, walking distance from Bowen Hills Station, and mere minutes to the CBD.
The renovation of this charming 1920’s residence exhibits a strong regard and respect for the original home whilst creating an extremely liveable home, optimizing space, light and lifestyle.
Gleaming timber floors, soaring ceilings, glass-paned breezeways, VJ walls, leadlight doors, along with original French doors and oversized sash windows, captivate at every turn.
Step into an elegant past as you enter through the pretty batwing doors and onto the breezy wrap-around verandah, offering wonderful destinations for living and entertaining. The Queenslander life!
2 bedrooms are located off the entrance hall. To the left, the master bedroom features a beautiful ensuite showcasing herringbone marble tiles, a deep spa bath and rain shower.
Floor to ceiling robes flank the original sash window and French doors invite in soft breezes from the sweeping verandah.
The second bedroom also boasts wonderful storage with floor to ceiling cupboards. It flows to a conveniently located study and bedroom 3 tucked away at the front of the home. A perfect set up for children or teenagers with a study to share!
A grand living and dining space takes centre stage in this beautiful home, crowned with soaring 3.3m VJ ceilings and an elegant chandelier.
Bed 4 is located just off this living space and also opens onto the wrap-around verandah through French doors.
The bedrooms are serviced by a modern bathroom with beautiful marble tiles, a separate toilet and a large linen press.
Informal living at the rear of the home provides a great layout for family living, centred around a stunning Provincial-style kitchen.
Family life revolves around the 3m island bench, that features a wine fridge and a pretty farmhouse sink. Complete with quality SMEG appliances, this enchanting space opens to the wrap-around verandah, providing a wonderful spot for breakfast or an evening soiree.
The kitchen flows to a large meals area that steps down to the informal living space that features the original fireplace, rejuvenated with striking tiles and a sleek hearth.
The expansive, fully-fenced and terraced back yard provides ample room for a pool or trampoline and showcases beautiful lush green lawns and a vantage point for enjoying the elevated suburb views and twinkling evening lights.
