Timeless Beauty With Contemporary Touch

All serious offers considered!
Built circa 1914, this Silkstone Queenslander sits proudly on the manicured 1,083 m2 corner block. Over 100 years later, the owners have lovingly and meticulously added that contemporary touch without loosing any character or charm. Welcoming you home as you drive through the automatic sliding gate, you will need to stake your claim as to which 1 of the 4 garage spaces is yours. Expect every Christmas lunch to be here as well with the huge outdoor entertainment area, fully equipped to cater for the largest gathering. At night this transforms into the ultimate party space, from the built in bar with fridge, plumbed in sink and integrated 6 burner BBQ to the smart wiring with surround sound system.
The home features all the character and charm you would come to expect from an enduring classic with original fret work, coloured glass, VJ walls and polished pine floorboards that combine seamlessly with the modern additions. The front bullnose veranda is your space to escape the kids and enjoy your morning coffee while the under cover rear deck with mountain views adjoining the kitchen is the ideal gathering space for the family. Open plan living area brings the outside in with french doors opening onto the front veranda as well as a handy sleepout. You will be spoilt for choice for living spaces as there is also internal stairs leading to what could be used as a second lounge or teenagers retreat (currently set up as home office). The second bathroom has also been tastefully renovated featuring a 2 person spa bath that is just what the doctor ordered after a long week at work.

Change to Ipswich Real Estate!

Changing my realestate agent for both my rental properties was daunting and I had been putting it off for months, then once again the agent that I had used for the last few years made yet another blunder it was time to kick Parktrent properties out and finally find an agent who actually knew what they are doing! I only made one phone call to Ipswich Real Estate and after a few minutes talking with Candice the rental manager I felt at ease and knew this company knew what they were doing and had a fresh approach to the boring rental industry! I’ve now been with them for just over six months and kick myself for not changing to them sooner, they organised the changeover I did nothing, they sorted out new Tennants within days and the best part is they actually ring you back! I know this is a simple thing to do but my previous agent didn’t so I felt quite special to get three phones call from them in one day! If you’re having problems like I did with Parktrent properties pick the phone up and ring Candice and the team, it will be the best call you make all day, I was for me!

Genuine agent!

In my recent experience, buying and selling property can be a either an exciting & wonderful experience or an overwhelming & exhausting process.. After being completely let down by one of the big franchises in town, I emailed a local agency, well after business hours had closed & was blessed to have Troy Boettcher contact me within minutes.. Troy met with us the following day & made the entire process an absolute joy.. Troy's knowledge of the area, the current trends & a marketing strategy, that he designed and tailored just for us, ensured us a prompt sale at a price we were more than happy with.. Troy kept us well informed, he was proactive and didn't waste a minute of our time.. A genuine agent and man who deserves all the success in the world..
