An Iconic Toowoomba Home

Stunningly renovated with great attention to detail throughout, the current owners have been proud caretakers of their share of the property's history.

Pedestrian access is through a separate front gate on Mackenzie street just above Toowoomba Grammar School making it a perfect entrance for potential business clients visiting the ground floor office.

Vehicle access to the property is via a remote-controlled gate that leads through a tree lined driveway up to a double lock up remote-controlled garage. The whole property is fully fenced making the front yard with its cottage style garden, tree shaded areas and children's playground equipment a safe and inviting play area.

The main entrance to the house is via a wide set of steps that lead through a wraparound verandah festooned in ornate iron lace. Opening the front door with inlaid lead lighting reveals parquetry flooring and a warm, light filled entranceway to the stately, formal dining room. This room features high ornate pressed metal ceilings and unique pressed metal walls. Three rooms radiate off this dining room as well a large glassed in section of verandah with beautiful honey coloured crow's ash timber flooring and a perfect northern aspect to let in lots of natural light.

A formal lounge is situated between the kitchen and formal dining room and provides an intimate space with an ornate fireplace and impressive art deco style skylight.

On the southern side of the house is the family heart of the home with a modern, spacious kitchen, and family room. In the kitchen, stainless steel appliances complement lavish stone benches and a splash back featuring designer tiles. Cupboard and pantry space is generous and a breakfast bar provides another informal meal area. The cork floored family room is reverse cycle air-conditioned and extra warmth is provided by either a wood heater or gas underfloor heating that is spread throughout the house. The leafy garden provides serene views to the whole southern side.

Just before going downstairs to the ground floor of the home is the magnificent main bathroom. Beautiful 2 pack joinery is used to great effect with floor to ceiling glossy porcelain tiles and a sumptuous marble vanity. A top of stairs storage room mirrors the bathroom's look with more 2 pack cupboards.

The downstairs floor contains a large air-conditioned office perfect for a home business as it has its own separate entranceway and is easily shut off from the rest of the house. Polished timber flooring and French doors with garden views make this an impressive meeting room.

A generously sized and ensuited downstairs bedroom and walk in robe is perfect for those who need a dual living situation or would like an alternative spot for their main bedroom. Again, polished timber flooring has been used to great effect and the ensuite is a marvellous renovation with frameless shower, ornate mirror and porcelain tiles.

Outdoor entertainment options are well catered for with two alfresco patio areas nestled under shady trees and a stately, wide verandah for inclement weather. A built in pizza oven provides a focal point for relaxed outdoor dining.

This Toowoomba icon is truly one of a kind and represents a well-matched mix of the old and the new with many, many unique features and meticulous renovations. Arrange an inspection soon to avoid disappointment.
