This once run down 1950's Queenslander has been given a new lease on life. 27 Cook Street was found by dedicated owners who have given justice to the home and paid homage to its history. The now beautifully restored home represents its past, but also meets the quality and needs of the modern family. The floor plan has changed and is now double in size offering a downstairs area which would make the perfect guest wing, home business office or just the kid's alternate retreat.
As we approached the home, the crisp fresh colours and detailed craftsmanship begin to ooze. At the bottom of the stairs is a lovely pair of bifold timber doors which could be the perfect entrance to the home office. Heading upstairs, we enter a now rustic foyer detailed to the period as the beginning of the home.
Leading into the lounge, the gleaming, polished flooring is shining back at you and your eyes are drawn past the high ceilings, straight through the home with the newly designed floor plan connecting the home outside. From the lounge, the strategically placed galley style kitchen is clean white and embracing the bifolding doors to the huge, full length timber deck.
A hallway between the lounge and kitchen leads you to the bedrooms with the first to the left being a very luxurious master suite with the original bay window in place bringing a piece of history and warmth back to the home. The new layout has given the master a stunning ensuite bathroom featuring an original clawfoot bathtub, restored and reclaimed vanity with his and hers bowls and stone tops. Feature tiling and crisp finishes bring a level of luxury in here. The second and third bedrooms upstairs are also very generous, all conveniently with built-in robes. The 12-foot ceilings are one of the amazing features I feel brings you right back to the 1950's.
The family bathroom is a masterpiece, featuring floor to ceiling herringbone tiles to contrast the rest of the subway tiling with a large, separate bathtub and shower. Pendant lighting and another beautifully restored vanity brings the bathroom together.
Downstairs has been fully enclosed and extends the living space of the home to a whole new level. Kept simple with elegant touches, the now fully tiled, large, open rumpus room with marble bar and beautiful kitchenette would make the perfect guest area or teenager's retreat.
All of this on a landscaped, 1,012 square meter block of land; where else would you want to be?
