Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this Federation-style home is like something out of a fairytale.
Delicate, decorative porch brackets, lush green lawns and white picket fences all contribute to make the 1,677sqm homestead at 8 Kianga Street, Graceville, a truly delectable offering.
The property last sold for $1.6 million in 2005, according to CoreLogic, and now, more than 15 years later, has been listed for at least $3 million.
The substantial home has been described as ‘comfortable, character-filled, and a tranquil haven for a growing family to enjoy’, and with an abundance of high end features it’s not hard to see why.
A front door framed by stained glass panels invites you into a central vestibule leading out to spacious, open-plan living. To the left, a formal dining room with feature pendant lighting shares a pass-through window with the high-end kitchen, which wraps around to an informal family room.
At the other end of the space, a large living room is situated beneath an inserted dome ceiling with ornate crown moulding. The whole space folds around a fantastic back deck overlooking the hexagonal pool and tennis court. It all feels very french on this entertaining deck, thanks to fresh white-painted slats, and crisp black trim.
You can glimpse the nearby Brisbane River from the back deck, and it’s only a stone’s throw away from the grassy, flood-lit tennis court. A stone’s throw in the other direction – separated only by a manicured lawn – is the six-sided inground pool. It comes with its own cabana, containing a powder room and kitchenette, perfect for a poolside barbecue!
The bottom floor houses four of the six bedrooms, and a separate children’s rumpus room, with the parent’s room carefully situated on the upper floor, in its own private wing next to a book-lined study. A generous walk-in robe is positioned next to the tiled en suite bathroom, while the bedroom itself enjoys a bay window overlooking the tennis court and further on down to the river.
It’s a truly beautiful home, perfect for raising a family, and best of all it’s within walking distance of schools, cafes, shops, and even the cinema!
