The circa 1900 Bardon 'Khyber' pre-war home truly lives up to its name after the meticulous renovation it has undertaken. With 'Khyber' meaning a fort, castle or palace it truly evokes a sense of all three the moment you walk through the door. When considering the possibilities with this home, the owners took particular care to keep key features of the historical build whilst ensuring the luxury of modern living.
Elevated from the front on this low maintenance block, taking in the Bardon outlook from the north facing rear, this home offers an enviable lifestyle in a highly coveted area. With the bespoke picket fence, cottage style courtyard and classic front verandah, the home invites you in to take a closer look. From the high ceilings and VJ walls to the distinctive original hoop pine timber flooring you can see the original features have been lovingly restored.
The upper level includes 2 queen bedrooms and full bathroom. The open plan living, casual dining and kitchen zone flows through bi-fold doors to a huge north-facing deck making for easy entertaining and expanding your living space. The modern and functional kitchen with appealing Romanstone benchtops and subtle mood lighting provides plenty of storage, ample bench space and Smeg stainless-steel appliances. A great space for entertaining friends and family.
The upper rear deck has privacy screening and enjoys beautiful breezes that keep this level of the home very comfortable, essential for the Brisbane climate. Although ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning is installed, it will rarely be necessary.
Downstairs you will find the master bedroom with elegant modern ensuite and large walk in robe, the 4th bedroom, 2nd bathroom and another living space - just perfect when family separation is required. This area opens to another enormous deck with access to the surprisingly large back yard.
The fabulous laundry is more than you'll ever need with Romanstone benchtops, extensive cupboard space and external access to the drying area.
The home is located in the highly sought-after school catchment for Ithaca Creek State School and Kelvin Grove State College. With parks, Ithaca Creek walking trails, the Ashgrove and Paddington shopping and café precincts and the CBD all so close - this home is positioned perfectly.
