The bathroom is to die for.When asked if they would build again, Mr Rete said plans were currently up in the air, but the idea of constructing another home fit for their family appealed to them.“It was very challenging, but it was very exciting at the same time,” Mr Rete said.

Gold Coast house has a claw-foot bath in its backyard

bbcvjqyg

first_imgThe house has been partially renovated. RE/MAX Regency agent Charl Louw, who is marketing the property with Augusta Swayn, said the bathtub was purchased to be used in the renovation. But after not being able to complete the updates, the owner placed it in the backyard as a quirky, last minute addition. “It was an impromptu decision,” Mr Louw said. “He bought that for the second bathroom but time hasn’t been on their side.“It’s there as a piece, the next owners can use it there and connect it or use it in the bathroom if they convert it.” Mr Louw said the renovations had been completed except for the second bathroom, where the bath would have gone. “He converted a three bedroom, one bathroom to a five-bedroom house with a new kitchen and impressive outside area — it’s a real stunner in Mudgeeraba.” Brick features walls are on show throughout. The claw-foot bathtub standing in all its glory. Buyers keen to bathe in their backyard surrounded by nature need look no further than this recently renovated Mudgeeraba property. The five-bedroom house at 168 Wallandra Rd has a large yard with a covered entertainment area and plenty of grass, plus the freestanding bathtub in the middle. Unfortunately the bath isn’t connected to water, so filling it up might take a while but could prove handy for a number of things — an ice bucket when hosting guests or a spot to wash the dog, maybe?

Three level extension hides behind historic Queenslander

nlnkzlpc

first_img BEFORE: 16 Strath Street, Highgate Hill.Nearly 140 years later, rail lines have expanded and so has the house, but transport solutions for a growing city remain the focus of the current owner.Michael Roth is a passenger and freight transport consultant who has lovingly restored the three-bedroom worker’s cottage and joined it to a three-storey extension that has tripled the house size and added three more bedrooms. BEFORE: The rear sleep-out. AFTER: No longer a sleep-out, this room has become the main bathroom.“This is one of the beauties of Brisbane,” he said.“It’s on top of a hill near South Bank, with views to the east and west and the city. We can see sunrise and sunset from the front veranda and the new deck.”“What we know is that this was one of the three original houses on the street. We know it was built somewhere between 1881 when the land was subdivided and 1883 when it appears in the post office book.”But despite the romance of its origins, the house was rundown when Michael and Susan Roth bought it in 2013.“We rented it out for 18 months while we worked out what to do and then we took the plunge to start the renovation,” he said. BEFORE: The old kitchen was added on to the original building in an extension that was demolished.The design for the extension and renovation was completed in 2015 and then building approvals were sought with construction taking place between 2017 and 2020. “I’ve done about half a dozen renovations but this is the biggest job by far. AFTER: The new kitchen is built in almost the same spot as the old one, as part of the new extension.Mr Roth, who is a mechanical engineer, decided not to go with an architect, choosing to design the house himself in consultation with a building designer and draughtsman. He also had project manager Ben Kelly from Kelly Constructions oversee the build.The house was raised slightly and built in underneath, demolishing a previous extension which had a kitchen and bathroom behind the home. BEFORE: The previous extension. AFTER: The new extension.The original home now has three bedrooms and a lounge upstairs and a guest bedroom with an ensuite, laundry and garage on the ground floor.A front sunroom in the original house has been converted into part of the front veranda and the rear sunroom has become the main bathroom on the first floor. BEFORE: The front enclosed sunroom. AFTER: The front sunroom is now part of the veranda.The extension is barely visible from the front of the 549sq m property and has a self-contained granny flat on the ground level, while the main living, dining and kitchen areas are on the first floor with a rear deck. More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa7 hours agoParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus8 hours ago AFTER: The property’s footprint as it looks today.The second floor is taken up by the master bedroom.Wide blackbutt floorboards have been laid throughout the house to link the old and new sections and instead of building cupboards in the bedrooms, extra storage space has been built into the attic. AFTER: The central stairs and hallway represent the point where the original house meets the new extension. AFTER: Another view of the join between the two buildings, with a pond that features bricks from the existing home.A passive solar design underpins the home with a central corridor that sucks the air from the front to the back of the house, creating a sustained breeze and reducing the need for airconditioning.And wherever possible the couple managed to recycle original materials. “We recycled what we could in terms of some of the wood and the bricks, there was an old chimney that was falling down from 1900 and we took that apart carefully and used all those bricks for the pond that we built and the pathway.” BEFORE AND AFTER: The same aspect as before but the city has changed.But in making a multi-generational home, the couple, whose children have left home, say the house is now too big for their needs so they have put it on the market with Bettina Jude of Belle Property West End. This home at 16 Strath Street, Highgate Hill has undergone a major restoration and extension and is now for sale. Brisbane’s earliest rail lines were being built when a railway surveyor moved in to 16 Strath Street, Highgate Hill. FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOKlast_img read more

QLD Health puts 122-yr-old Queenslander up for sale

tuclbbnq

first_imgThis heritage property called Linwood at 75 Shakespeare Street, Coorparoo, has been listed for sale by tender closing 5pm September 23,A 123-year-old Queenslander currently owned by the state government has been listed for sale – and its history is a richlist snapshot of young Brisbane.The historic home known as Linwood was built circa 1898, just under 40 years after Queensland became a separate colony from New South Wales.MORE: Nuns sell Brisbane laundry for $27mGrand renovation for 100-year-old QueenslanderLockdown sparks renovation surgeClassic features remain at Linwood despite the passing of years.It was owned by just two families before it was transferred to the crown in 1975 before it was listed under Queensland Health for the past 14 years.Just under a decade ago, Linwood was cited for heritage listing, when a Brisbane City Council citation described as having local significance “as one of the fine homes built by affluent local residents on the elevated areas of Coorparoo in the late nineteenth century”.It was described as “a fine example of a substantial 1880s timber house” with “elegance and symmetry” in its design incorporating double front bays, an interesting roof form and decorative Victorian era detailing.The vast home embraces wood features.The citation said the home was built circa 1898 for William “Bill” Lahey Nicklin and his wife, Georgia Nicklin. The Federation Queenslander was built on a substantial block of land which had been gifted to Mrs Nicklin after marriage by her father – former Brisbane mayor James Hipwood. It was near the Hipwood’s own substantial family home ‘Surrey Hill’.“William Nicklin’s father, Reuben Nicklin, was a successful businessman who settled in Coorparoo with his family in the 1870s and William continued his father’s role as a prominent member of the local community.” Mr Nicklin’s mother was timber industry heiress Jane Lahey.Features such as the traditional fireplace are a rarity in Queensland.Coorparoo Shire was newly created with just 2500 residents when the home was built in 1898, the heritage citation said. “Its residents were a mix of farmers and wealthy politicians and businessmen who established fine homes, often situated on the higher parts of the suburb.”“The Nicklins were a prominent family in Coorparoo. Reuben Nicklin built two fine homes in Coorparoo in the 1880s – ‘Langlands’, now part of Villanova School and ‘Hatherton’ which became the Methodists’ Queen Alexandra Home for children. Reuben Nicklin’s grandson, Sir Francis Nicklin (William Lahey Nicklin’s nephew), was the Premier of Queensland from 1957 to 1968.”The vast veranda/sleep out has been enclosed but offers tonnes of potential.According to the heritage document, the Nicklins added four adjacent allotments to their landholding in 1904 to give Linwood an acre of space on the corner of Shakespeare Street and Rees Avenue. Then when Mrs Nicklin died in 1925, the property transferred to her husband whose community efforts had included helping push to set up the Coorparoo Bowls Club in the 1920s.It was subdivided in half after his death in 1956, according to the BCC document, when the house was bought by Esmonde and Mary Rylands who relocated it closer to Shakespeare Street.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:58Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:58 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD432p432p216p216p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
