Grand character home hits the market in Brisbane’s bayside
THIS grand Queenslander with swimming pool sits on an 810sq m corner block in the heart of Wynnum.
Owners Tony and Patricia Lawler bought the home at 116 Stradbroke Ave 15 years ago and are selling to downsize.
Mr Lawler said he and his wife were on the hunt for a family home when they found 16 Stradbroke Ave. They loved the space on offer as well as the beautiful house.
“It’s big and grand, and it sits on the highest point of Stradbroke Ave,” Mr Lawler said.
“I particularly like the verandas. We have verandas on two sides so you can move around until you find the sunniest or coolest spot.
“Also from anywhere in the house there is a beautiful aspect. And we get lovely breezes through here as well.”
In the time the Lawlers have owned the home they have extended the veranda at the back of the home and added a second driveway to the side of the property.
Set across two levels, with dual living potential, the home has plenty of character including timber floorboards, VJ walls, high ceilings, ornate fretwork and stained glass.
Upstairs there is formal lounge room, sun room, bathroom, kitchen and dining room
Three of the bedrooms are upstairs, with two opening to the rear deck.
Downstairs there is an open-plan living, dining and kitchenette area opening to the rear patio.
There are two more bedrooms downstairs with one having direct access to the second bathroom.
Outside there is an inground pool, established gardens, double carport and a separate under house parking area with driveway.
Mr Lawler said the home was very comfortable to live in and also great for entertaining.
“We’ve had all the 18th and 21st parties here,” he said.
The home is on the market through Gail Gobey of Sash & Gable Property.
