With a history dating back to 1915 "Couthalla" has been fully and lovingly restored to a high standard using traditional quality fittings throughout to suit the 1915 era. This timeless Elegant Queenslander set on a sprawling 5,500sqm at 42 Davenport Drive, Coonarr was relocated here in 2004 from Kelvin Grove in Brisbane.
From stunning 100 year old hoop pine polished floors to beautiful leadlight windows, original fretwork above the internal doors and traditional heritage colours, this home has been authentically restored to reflect that old world charm from years gone by.
As you approach the property you are greeted by a large private front fence, palm trees and double electric gates that open onto a magnificent circular driveway surrounded by extensive landscaped gardens.
The front butterfly steps welcome you up onto the wide wraparound verandas, perfect for lazy afternoons, reading your favourite book or catching up with friends. The veranda is an integral part of the house and is an essential part of the Queenslander way of life
When you step through the front door, the wide hallway draws your eye to the impressive 12 foot ceilings, high picture rails and original wooden fretwork and archways. From here you are invited to explore the formal lounge and dining room separated by the original and traditional wood room divider, both rooms have direct access to the Veranda via double French doors.
Across the hallway you will find the beautiful Master Bedroom Suite with 2 sets of double French doors opening onto the veranda, there's a large walk in robe and an impressive fully tiled ensuite with claw foot bath, double shower and double vanity.
Make your way further down the hallway to the large light filled kitchen with granite benchtop, large island bench and storage galore, all overlooking the back deck and gardens. There is an office/study area off the rear of the kitchen, another dining area, 2 large bedrooms with leadlight windows and built in robes. A linen cupboard and a tasteful family bathroom with leadlight features complete this space.
Head down the internal wooden stairway to the spacious laundry with ample bench space, cupboards and laundry chute, there's even more cupboard space under the stairs. Here is also where you will find the third fully tiled bathroom with shower, situated here for easy access when working outdoors.
Through the original back door with yet another stunning leadlight window, to the undercover parking area with enough room for 6 cars. With 11 foot clearance, modifications have been made to allow for a boat or caravan access underneath.
You will find a workshop fitted out with a re-purposed kitchen, again with leadlight features, a TV, a fridge and enough cupboard and bench space to keep even the fussiest of gardeners or handyman happy.
