Letâ€™s talk location. You probably already know some of the delights Graceville has to offer, but if you donâ€™t, letâ€™s talk about that for a moment.
Graceville is one of Brisbaneâ€™s loveliest and most sought after suburbs, situated an easy 15-20 minute drive to the city centre, and just 25 minutes to the airport, if you need to go further afield.
Families will feel secure in the knowledge that their childrenâ€™s education is well looked after as some of Brisbaneâ€™s best private schools are just a short walk or train ride away.
Add to this some of Brisbaneâ€™s best cafes and family friendly parks and walkways – riverside or parkside – you really are spoiled for choice. Graceville is home to the iconic Regal Twin Cinema, which is surrounded by wonderful cafes and our own little â€˜village shopsâ€™, and the Eldorado Cinema is just a 5 minute train ride away, which will also take you to the newly refreshed Indooroopilly Shopping Centre.
Thatâ€™s lifestyle, entertainment, shopping, schools and transport sorted.
Now, letâ€™s talk about your new home.
68 Allardyce Street is a wonderful family home, in a peaceful street, built using brick veneer and a colour bond roof, for this family, in 2008. The property sits on a very large and highly sought after 645m2 lot.
A large low set home on a generous block, this house has an almost calm and coastal feel to it, yet still manages to be both warm and welcoming. Thatâ€™s clever. And, it starts the moment you set foot in the door. Youâ€™ll be both surprised and delighted by the entrance, with its high spacious ceiling that carries into the living spaces. Designed for easy living, this home offers expansive and flowing living spaces, with beautiful bamboo flooring, and lead you to the massive outdoor pavilion in front of the pool. Resort feel? We think so. Weâ€™ll come back to that in a minute.
This home has five bedrooms, with the master suite offering a â€˜walk throughâ€™ wardrobe, taking you to large ensuite, that has dual sink and mirrors for him and her and large shower. Take time out here. You deserve it.
All the bedrooms are light filled, with large windows and have built in robes. The current owners are using one of the bedrooms as a massive office. Getting things done. You decide how youâ€™ll configure the space according to the needs of you and your family.
The kitchen is amazing, which is evident in the pictures, so no need to talk too much about that, youâ€™ll see it for yourself when you come and inspect – which you need to. Because this home is fantastic.
Itâ€™s very unusual to find a low set house of this size, on a block of this size. Theyâ€™ve carefully considered this home and property to maximise â€˜liveabilityâ€™.
Another careful consideration was the environmental impact of the home. To offset the ducted air conditioning throughout the home – we live in Queensland, and we need it – as well as reducing operating expenses, the owners have installed 5kw of solar panels to provide green power, solar hot water boosted by gas, 15,000 litre water tanks and all plumbed into the toilets and laundry, with an additional 3000 litres for watering the plants. It all adds up, and it makes a difference to the footprint we all leave behind.
Time to talk about the pool. The pool is big, blue, and beautiful and surrounded by glass, so you look straight through the living areas out to the pool. So relaxing. The gorgeous pavilion is enormous and is set up for dining, but has loads of room to really create your own special space. And thereâ€™s grass too – not too much to be annoying, just enough to be homely. The Goldilocks lawn.
Honestly, this house has everything – the only thing missing is you.
