House Sold - THE GAP QLD
Few houses in The Gap have the initial impact of 39 Barkala Street. Depending on your perspective, this is an imposing, grand, impactful family home on a huge corner block and with the potential to make a home your very own castle.
A triple garage on one angle, and a raised swimming pool on the other, it’s obvious straight away that behind the exterior there lies all the potential you could want for family life, home working, entertaining, and separated living. And, as if by magic, once you head through the front door, there’s the first surprise! You’re not ‘in’ the house, but straight into the massive outdoor entertaining space, with covered patio, pool, BBQ, outdoor bathroom (with shower, toilet and vanity) and bar area. Your guests will never need to go indoors to enjoy this resort-style area, such is the expanse of opportunities.
Once we step into the house, we are greeted by a huge kitchen, dining and lounge area. This property means that any format, any decor, and any furnishings are only limited by your own imagination. The kitchen is impressive. A large, island work bench with Caesarstone tops throughout is a recently refreshed culinary delight. A 90cm electric oven and gas stove top, along with the stylish rangehood; folding windows to the outside to give you views of the pool, and the option to serve your guests direct from the kitchen. In addition to heaps of storage, there’s a walk-in pantry. And then there is a converted sun room at the front, which offers oodles of natural light, and presents opportunities for a home office or retreat.
The master bedroom boasts an en suite with shower, vanity and toilet, extensive built-in robes and ducted aircon, which spreads throughout the top level. A second and third bedroom have good sized built-ins, and a family bathroom offers plenty of storage as well as a shower, toilet and vanity. There’s an additional room that’s been used as a study with direct access to the outdoor entertaining area, but this could be used as a bedroom or home office.
Head down the staircase, and under the house is a Tardis-like space that seems to be crying out for options. A large recreation room or teenage retreat provides independence for a growing family. There’s a built-in laundry, separate bathroom with another toilet, shower and vanity, so those looking for separate living space won’t be disappointed. This is not forgetting the fact that this is a three-car garage, with individual electric doors, a massive storage room and a workbench.
Located at the Ashgrove end of The Gap, Barkala Street benefits from easy access to everything this natural corridor has to offer: great shops, eateries, and medical facilities. The active can get their fix from bushwalking the hundreds of kilometres of trails in the area, Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre, gyms, Ashgrove Golf Club, Taylor Range Country Club and much more. The city is less than 30 minutes away, and express public transport is a short hop, skip and jump from your door. The best schools in one of Brisbane’s most in-demand catchment areas are also just minutes away. If making a place your own is important, this is a home crying out for your attention.
