Below are the reasons why the present owner bought, see if you are on the same wavelength
“While I have owned the house for 25 years, I have never had the opportunity to live in it, I moved away from Brisbane shortly after being ready to move in. My vision for the house was to enjoy the unique architecture of the Federation era and the care that is evident in a time when skilled craftsmanship was displayed with pride and tangible in the gorgeous touches which bring out the natural beauty of the materials.
I love the rawness of the materials and the homely vibe they create. It exudes the classic line from "The Castle", this is not a house, it is a home. It is designed for a family to grow and enjoy the space together over generations.
When the time came to revive the features of the home recently, consideration was given to retaining the design features of the era while providing modernity in functionality. The kitchen has been designed to be able to support the creation of pleasurable meals for family and friends, to be enjoyed in the classic dining room with features from a time gone by. The polished floors bring out the vibrancy of the 4 inch pine boards, a rarity in the modern era.
When I bought the house, there were fruit trees and a vege garden down the back, you couldn't get more Australian than that. I like that there is plenty of space to create a bountiful garden.
There is plenty of room downstairs for safe storage of vehicles and to store items as required.
When the fence was created between the neighbouring property, privacy was a consideration for the rear, but as it hits the welcoming space towards the front, it creates a sense of openness and community to welcome interaction between neighbours and form neighbourly bonds. This area has always been residential and is well located on "the hill" in Windsor, with convenient transport amenity nearby.
Back in the days when I was a fit young thing, my intention was to run to work, easy enough, when it is 4ks from the city. Now that I am less fit, it is comforting to know that there is a modern busway 300m away. It really does have a lot of plusses from a location perspective.
All in all, it is a beautiful home, built with pride of workmanship, in a fantastic location, in a lovely neighbourhood, with access to everywhere."
