Originally the nurses' quarters for the St Kilda baby hospital, the house has historical significance in the Wynnum precinct. Imagine owning a piece of local history!
As the original Colonial house was raised and extensively renovated in 2012, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds.
It has been designed with open plan and relaxed contemporary interiors that blend seamlessly with the original character features.
Beautiful blond wide hoop pine floors, deep skirtings and architraves, VJ panelling, fretwork, breeze ways, lofty ceilings, and timber doors and windows are showcased in an on trend grey and off white colour palette.
The layout of the home over two levels will appeal to a variety of buyers.
Adults can be left to entertain upstairs in peace, whilst the children or young adults have their own space on the ground floor flowing to the front garden and lawned area perfect for weekend schaningins......and the location for a pool perhaps in the future?
