This is a lowset veneer brick house on 1607 sqm in the prestige suburb of Rochedale on Brisbane’s southside. The house has 3 bedrooms, laundry, two toilets, bathroom, and ensuite off the main bedroom. There is a walk-in wardrobe in the main bedroom and built-ins in the other two bedrooms. Living room and kitchen are open area. The kitchen has a walk-in pantry. The kitchen easily accesses the formal lounge/dining area. Ceilings are insulated. An open cooling veranda is located along the front of the house. With a northerly aspect it is cool in summer and warm in winter. The house was internally renovated a couple of years ago.
The colourbond roof accommodates solar panels as well as a solar hot water system. A covered cooling 2 metre walkway attaches the house to the garage and car port. The 9 metre by 6 metre garage has an 8ft ceiling to allow this area to be legally converted into a granny flat, and provision is made for all services within the slab for future shower and toilet installation. A car port for 2 cars is attached to the garage.
The yard is flat and surrounded by new 6ft high fences, with an electric sliding gate. There is a bore on the property providing an endless supply of water. This is drinkable but holds a slightly higher mineral content. The bore pump is 30 metres down, hanging in 20 metres of water. With this property, planting of fruit trees and vegetable gardens would be easily sustained. There is also room for a 25 x 10 metre pool at one end of the house, and a half size tennis court at the other. Ultimately, the block would be ideal for several town houses if desired.
