Character and charm on a leafy Clayfield street
THIS character home is on a quiet street in Clayfield, walking distance to public transport, day cares and schools.
Having owned the property at 22 Railway Pde for 14 years, Darryl Tebbutt and his wife Merita are selling to make a sea change.
“The home is in a fairly peaceful setting and it’s elevated so you get the nice northerly breezes,” Mr Tebbutt said.
“I like that the house is light, airy and cool.”
The Tebbutts originally purchased the home for its convenient location.
“When we bought it, we were both working so we loved that it was close to the railway station,” Mr Tebbutt said.
“We live on the Doomben line but we’re also only about 800m from Wooloowin Station.
“We could wander down to the station and we’d never wait more than five minutes for a train.
“We’re also close to Sandgate Rd and there are about three buses that head into the city from there, so if there’s ever a train strike, we’re not caught out.”
Mr Tebbutt said he was unable to find any information about when the house was built but he believed it was constructed in the 1930s.
The property has timber floors, VJ walls, decorative breezeways and high ceilings.
There is a galley kitchen and an open-plan living and dining space, opening to the rear covered deck.
The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, the second bedroom has veranda access and the third bedroom has a built-in wardrobe.
There is also a family bathroom, laundry and front veranda.
The Tebbutts extended the home on one side to include a new media room with external access.
Mr Tebbutt said the home had the potential to be raised and would suit a young family or a professional couple.
The property is being marketed by Tim Hunt of Harcourts Clayfield.
