71 Moreton Street New Farm QLD 4005
"Haven is where the home is"- A perfect synergy of classical and new age71 Moreton Street, New Farm
The street appeal of the traditional single gable Queenslander with succulent gardens amongst the treated telegraph poles sets the scene but doesn't give it all away. This home is modest but not pretentious and holds a secret that needs seeing to be believed. Always leave the table wanting more, and this is what this home offers.
The first half is the traditional section of the home with the central corridor and then bedrooms off to both the left and right. All four (4) bedrooms are found here and if you're a family that wants to be together, then this will suit you. There is another space downstairs which could be the fifth (5) if you so wanted it to be. This is fully self-contained with its very own kitchenette and fully equipped bathroom.
The master suite with its very own fire place is large, spacious and light. Built-in-robes for him and her and a beautifully appointed en-suite. The kid's rooms are again spacious with built-in-robes and all these rooms are climate controlled through the ducted air conditioning system.
The second living or lounge area, most probably utilised by the kids is another break out space which this house has plenty of. Plenty of room for a comfortable couch, TV, ample storage and again light, bright with traditional stained-glass windows flooding this space with all the above and more.
The courtyard is simply breathtaking and James Forbes the architect sums it up perfectly- "This courtyard links the home's past with the here and now. The warmth, simplicity and intimate scale of the space make it a gathering space". "The hello feature is the original fireplace, altered so it now opens to the outdoors. Timber decking and seating will grey overtime, matching the muted coloring of a sheltering Olive tree".
Part of a pavilion extension of interconnected and flexible informal and social spaces, this kitchen contributes real warmth and character. Material finishes and details were inspired by traditional homestead kitchen typologies, and consist of charcoal and black laminate finishes to the cabinetry and matte finish charcoal stone bench-tops, plus spotted gum timber finishes to the pantry, island bench front and ceiling. Features also include a raw pressed-metal splash-back and polished concrete flooring throughout.
Further, the covered alfresco area is private, protected from the elements and flows out to the grassed and pool areas. The block is a generous 531m2 and that's why you get so much house as well as enough grass for the kids and entertaining.
All this said, the home pulls at your heart strings, it connects with you on so many levels and in so many ways. The more time you spend in this space, the more you understand it and then fully appreciate it. It's like a wine that will get better with age.
You'll truly love living here as have the current owners. I'll see you at the next open!
