Queenslander with a twist

Posted on Tue, 27 Nov 2007 by midcenturyjo


For those of you who don’t know I live in the state of Queensland. The old timber and corrugated iron houses we love so much are known as Queenslanders. (No brainer that one.) This is a fabulous example of a modern yet sympathetic renovation of one of these inner city gems. Great ideas here. Lots of light and white as well as a handy pass through bench from the kitchen to the outdoor room. Brilliant glass shelves in the bathroom windows holding a bonsai collection, black and white photo bed head and a child friendly stylish but tiny backyard. The thing I love so much though is the outdoor fireplace allowing entertaining on the deck even during the cool but never really cold winters. Up for auction suggested over $900,000. (No sign of a housing bust here anytime soon.)

I love the partions in the open plan it’s still open but just framed. Love it!
