80 Langshaw Street, New Farm QLD 4005 AUS
A warm, inviting home that engages and entices...
Imagine taking a leisurely Saturday morning stroll with the dog through New Farm Park followed by a coffee at the Deli and a short walk home to your very private and leafy abode….This is just one of the many lifestyle pleasures of living at 80 Langshaw Street, New Farm.
The formal entrance to the home, softened by the foliage and grassy courtyard, is charming and private but also, the perfect spot for pets or small children in which to play. Transitioning up the front steps, you’ll be charmed by the original colonial veranda fit with awnings and floor to ceiling federation windows and plantation shutters. A quiet outlook from which to sit and read the paper and watch the children play as well as a grand entrance for guests and family alike.
With an aesthetic and very functional floor plan, spanning over approximately 481m2, this 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is spacious as well as stunning from every vantage point. Filled with character features including separate formal dining and family rooms as well as an ornate double-sided original fire-place, fretwork, tall internal volumes with ornate cornices and ceiling trims, you’ll feel like a custodian of New Farm’s history.
A modern extension transitions down the long hallway, towards the rear of the property, and features a well-positioned home office and world class kitchen in terms of functionality, storage capacity, and clever design. Although, without a doubt, the epicenter of the home is the indoor-outdoor tropical alfresco courtyard that comes with adjustable Arab Awnings, an inbuilt BBQ and seating area atop a timber deck.
This is a space that brings the family together, whether it be dining, entertaining, playing, drawing or reading and it’s also from whence an a flood of natural light and fresh air flows abundantly throughout the home.
Continuing from this central space is the peaceful, calming and spacious master bedroom, balconette and en-suite, which overlooks the backyard and swimming pool. With high ceilings and overly generous storage, this room is designed with a minimalist advantage. Even the most severe A-type personality or over-achiever will be in a state of relaxation in this bedroom, either listening to the sound of the nearby swimming pool water jets or by staring off into the dense clusters of established pink Frangipani trees outside the bedroom windows.
Light, light and more light as you traverse to the ground level, via more full height bi-fold windows and internal stairs. There you will find the perfect guest bedroom, accessible via a private door, and the secondary family room or rumpus room that’s located adjacent to the swimming pool and rear courtyard. The ground level also contains access underneath the home, in which you’ll find a versatile area that provides even more storage space, room for a budding artisan to hone their craft, or further extend, as well as an apt and spacious cellar-room.
With a two car lock up garage at the rear of the property, and a bespoke community veggie patch, you and your family will fall in love living here -and so will your friends!
