House - THE GAP QLD
If you’re looking for a modern ready home – this is not for you.
If you have pigmentumphobia – this is not for you! (you’ll be doing lots of it)
If you have the creative brain juices that see beyond the brown, to a home that is beautiful in its story and the future memories it will create – WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Are you friends with one of ‘those’ savvy real estate people? You know what we mean, the ones who can find the gem of a house, and somehow turn the property into grand designs? I’ll let you in on a little secret: Do you know what they are looking for first?…
LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!
Sitting almost at the crest of the hill appears to be a plain, brown brick building. What we actually have is a home with a TONNE of character (that is lingo for ‘I need some love’). Beyond the character is a decent sized home spanning over two levels. With some imagination, combined with the elevation and views, the result will be spectacular!
Don’t be scared by the tacked-on current deck, but please be aware: this is going to need some slight reinforcement in the near future, or, remove it entirely and start again with another design. Either way, this space spanning approximately 8 meters (from house brick to fence) is a builder’s dream – easy access and lots of scope to extend the house itself.
Channel your THREE BIRDS renovation inspiration before stepping upstairs – for a moment you’ll mistake the location for a Swiss Chalet! There is smooth, warm timber panelling for as far as the eye can see.
While the kitchen is dated, she brings some areas of comfort and quality in the terrazzo-like stone bench tops. Swing yourself around and what you’ll notice (and hope that no one else does) from the kitchen and dining is the great elevation and views.
THIS is what The Gap is known for, if you can secure it for yourself. The bedrooms are ample in size and two have storage, and the main family bathroom is functional now, but let’s be honest, someone is going to make this a real piéce de résistance!
Downstairs (just under 2.4m height) is connected by internal stairs and offers the new homeowner an array of options. There is another bathroom down here, so it is almost a space of self-sufficiency if you did need to move the most unpopular family member. Otherwise, being on the ground level it is perfect for visiting guests or anyone with dodgy knees who may struggle getting up and down. There is what we call a wet-bar (repurposed kitchen cabinetry with sink), and the owners used the rooms down here as a 4th bedroom and combined dining and living. This large area has three separate entry and exit points, so air flow is a dream. And if you’re into creating external areas of the home where you can sit and ponder, this is calling out for it!
Outside.. oh golly where do we start. Does “blank canvas” help paint the picture? This newly turfed area is truly redeemed by size and potential… and did we mention the views? Bring back the charm of the 90’s paver and reinstate the courtyard. Or better yet – drop a pool at the back where not a soul will see you!
A hard-to-come-by location within walking distance to one of the most desirable schools, this is certainly a long-term investment you’ll never regret. You’re minutes from Hilder Road State School and the handiest bus routes to the city (381), and this leafy suburb is land locked by three nature corridors. You’re investing in a suburb that is well-protected, and is proud of the nature and our own man-made beach (have you seen the Resi?).
