Iconic Family Home Aligns Protected Bushland


Once owned by highly respected resident Alan Willing, and designed by his architect son, you’ll see why this home has long been in the hands of the current family for so long. There is a small stretch of homes along Bernarra Street that are awarded this rare location of direct backyard access to the protected greenbelt (Brisbane Forest Park and Mt. Coot-tha), and an even smaller number of these homes with this stunning hinterland views across our glistening suburb.

Before you reach the front door, the manicured front lawn and clean lines reveal much of what you will expect inside: a well-loved and cared for home, in search of a new family to create new memories.

Entering through the cottage-style front door, this immaculate house reveals itself slowly. A large lower room is the ideal retreat and could be adapted to be self-contained, or a bedroom, home office or living area. Also located at this same level is a double carport, with a large laundry and under house storage that also reveals a large workspace area.

Up the stairs and we see our first sense of just how light defines this home. The open plan lounge room, with cathedral ceiling and flooding natural light through the sliding doors, are stunning. The rich timber floorboards extend through to the L-shaped living addition, and dining room, and resonate with the sounds of wildlife and family memories.

The deck extends alongside the house and opens up widely into a platform to create one of many places to sit and soak in the sun. The spectacular views extend 180 degrees to the North and Northwest.

The beautifully designed and well-appointed kitchen offers even more views, and it is quite possible that they could distract you from the cooking! There’s oodles of storage and surface space, a large pantry and direct access to the deck. There’s also room for a small table for two for casual dining or a mid-afternoon coffee.

From here we pass access to the back garden, but we will return to that! Back inside, the stunning master bedroom has an amazing view of the garden, and if you watch carefully, you may see a wallaby hop by! It’s luxurious in every way, from the carpet to the plantation blinds, to the walk-through robe into an ensuite with vanity, toilet and shower. Two more bedrooms are equally well appointed, one with a built-in desk space and one with a high ceiling, and both with air con, fans and built-in robes. A smaller, carpeted fourth bedroom awaits your own personal touch.

The family bathroom has a shower and bath combo, vanity and built-in linen cupboard, and a separate toilet adds to the convenience.

Heading back outside, and the true nature of this house and this location come flooding into view. The environment is mind-blowing, and the wonderful decked entertaining area is the perfect spot to look over one of The Gap’s loveliest gardens. What’s more it merges seamlessly into Mt. Coot-Tha, and who is to say that your garden isn’t therefore one of the largest in Queensland? The kids will have their own spectacular playground, while you sit and enjoy the golden light of late afternoon spilling through the trees.

This a supportive neighbourhood and one that new owners will love. Bernarra Street is at the Ashgrove end of The Gap, and the natural delights aside, provides easy access to shops, restaurants, medical and sports facilities and public transport into the city. This is a suburb you’ll find everything you need to keep the family occupied, with our own manmade beach (The Resi) and some of the best mountain biking and bush escapes South East Queensland has to offer!
