Period perfection


This charming home, nestled in Stornaway Road in Queanbeyan, is packed with period features and an abundance of character.

The circa-1912 home sits on an 683sqm block and would be perfect for a number of different buyers, according to LJ Hooker Queanbeyan owner and principal, Jason Maxwell.

“The house suits a wide range of buyers such as professional couples, downsizers, families and even first home buyers who love the walk to all the conveniences [on offer].

“It’s a flat five-minute walk to the CBD, parks, schools, shops and cafés, tennis court and swimming pool.”

The home includes three bedrooms, serviced by a ‘pretty in pink’ bathroom with terrazzo flooring and additional separate toilet. The master bedroom includes a fireplace with Carrara marble surrounds and tiled marble hearth.

The delightful pastel kitchen is well-equipped for storage and cooking up a storm, with plenty of space on the timber bench, soft-close drawers, dishwasher and a traditional-style gas cooktop and electric oven.

Maxwell says the home’s period features make it a standout offering on the market, while recent work has seen it updated to include all the modern creature comforts.

“The house really encapsulates all that is great of the bygone era through high ceilings, the timber floors, windows, picture and dado rail and then this has been enhanced through a thoughtful and tasteful restoration and renovation,” he says.

“It will represent real value and with its extras like heating and cooling, and is a rare opportunity to purchase a period home with a dining room, two living areas and three bedrooms on a large block!”
