EXUDING all the elegance of a pre-war Queenslander, this residence, built about 1910, offers contemporary living without compromising its character.

Moved to the site from Gympie in 1992, the homestead on 2092sq m has been renovated and extended over the years and includes six bedrooms, three bathrooms, a studio, an office and an upper northeast-facing wraparound timber balcony with views over parkland.

Four bedrooms, the studio, office, two bathrooms, a formal lounge, sitting room, dining area and laundry are on the upper level, along with a white mosaic Caesarstone kitchen with a butlers pantry. Underneath the house is a granny flat with two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, living area, laundry and separate entry. There is also an adjoining storeroom, workshop and covered parking for four cars.

Tradition is retained throughout the residence with a mix of time-honoured features including wide pine timber floorboards, VJ walls, high ceilings, ornate fretwork, a claw foot bath, antique ceramic pedestal basins, french doors and many of the homes original windows.

All upper bedrooms open to the balcony, while the studio has a private deck. Modern appeal comes into play with comforts including ducted reverse cycle airconditioning, while the main bedroom boasts an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe and the kitchen has European appliances, a gas cooktop, Miele coffee machine and cerise glass splashback.

Externally, the house has a charming presence with its circular driveway and surrounding established gardens including vegetable patches. Other features include ceiling fans and two concrete water tanks with 66,000L capacity in total.

Agent Melinda Martin described the homestead as a supersized residence that catered for a variety of needs, with a floorplan that facilitated excellent separation of living.

With formal and informal areas, alfresco entertaining and the dual living set-up, there is a lot of home here, Ms Martin said.

Located a short drive into Maleny town and its full suite of amenities, this is the type and style of home so often sought after, yet rarely available. HM
