Self Contained Ground Level of Green Leafy Home

This home is on a quiet green leafy street, with easy access to public transport and equal distance of 10 minutes to Griffith University, South Bank and Gardens Point campus of Queensland University of Technology (QUT). It is just 15 minutes by car to QUT Kelvin Grove and Nathan Campus of Griffith. The University of Queensland is also within a 20-minute bike/boat ride or 30min walk.

The downstairs area itself is bedroom and study, with open plan kitchen, dining and lounge. It is a typical West End style character listed timber home and renovated Queenslander with modern kitchen and bathroom. Long south facing deck looking out to native flowering trees and visiting bird life (beyond is the Brisbane River). Main bedroom gets the winter sun in the morning and in summer receives no hot western sun.

Light and airy, there is a shared outdoor laundry, ceiling fans in each room, oil heater available and excellent security and privacy - so can sleep with french doors open in summer. Its open plan living space was once an art studio. The up-cycled silky oak french doors and louvres make for a light bright home - cool in summer and snug in winter. Despite having no air-conditioning, ergonomics are such that this is a very cool residence even in Queensland's hot summer.

Fully furnished, it is something of a treasure and a quiet retreat to come home to at night and yet just 10min bus ride (or 20 min walk) to West End's funky cafes, markets and nightlife, QPAC (performing arts centre) and GOMA (galleries).

Plenty of cupboard space and storage.

Vegie patch and compost onsite.

People working in the arts and or concerned with social and environmental justice are very welcome here.

Bills and wifi included.

Happy to provide more photos and information upon request.
