On the Avenue – Tropical Grand Colonial

15 Wattle Avenue, YEERONGPILLY


Behind a picturesque white picket fence and gate sits this grand 5-bedroom colonial home nestled behind tropical gardens on its sprawling landscaped 725m2 allotment. Within the highly sought after, Dress Circle suburb of Yeerongpilly, this two-storey home resides in the historic ‘Wattle Park Estate’ and combines all the crucial elements often pursued by buyers with families of all ages.

Entering the property, you will instantly appreciate the colourful gardens as the pathway takes you up a central staircase onto the wide wraparound verandahs and to a beautiful leadlight front door. Typical of a 1910 colonial you are greeted by a hallway with floor to ceiling VJ lined walls, 3 panel high waisted doors with breezeways above and stunning original golden Hoop Pine polished floors underfoot. The three bedrooms on the upper level are all positioned towards the front of the house; each opening onto the verandah through traditional French doors. The main bedroom has a walk-in fitted robe and a larger than average ensuite.

Once past the bedrooms, a generous arched open plan dining, living and brand-new kitchen awaits. These areas are made bright and airy with plenty of 6-light casement windows and French doors showcasing glimpses of the greenery outside the home. The kitchen is simply irresistible with quality appliances including a Siemens Induction cooktop, Bosch wall oven and dishwasher and hidden behind cabinetry, a Fisher & Paykel integrated refrigerator and freezer. Beautiful runs of white marble caesarstone feature above an abundance of storage cabinetry. The owners love their coffee and have painstakingly plumbed in connections for you to bring your favourite machine. Two large mechanical hopper windows make this kitchen easy to serve through to the full house-width, south facing deck meaning the area is established for entertaining with ease and perfection. Only contributing further, is the relaxing lounge space and great vantage point to oversee the lush gardens, creative lawn area and extensive architectural pool area.

The main bathroom is fitted with period fittings including a clawfoot bath showcased with black and white tiling.

Down the internal timber stairway is the generous family/games room, 2 more expansive bedrooms, the third bathroom and separate laundry. The double car garaging with dual remote doors is also accessed from this level. Rear French doors spill out to another full-width deck. Meander down through calming palm clad gardens to the salt-pool and very impressive private pool house. This area is complete with storage seating, a stainless bench top, built-in Schmick brand drinks fridge and an outdoor shower.

The features and detailing throughout this 5-bedroom home consistently display the beloved character Colonial aesthetic that has been upheld, maintained and improved to the highest standard to be enjoyed for years to come.

The property itself is in a wonderful location, within a family-oriented community in the well-regarded suburb of Yeerongpilly. There are many nearby transport options including the Yeerongpilly train station, city bus routes and bike access through to the city, hospitals, and universities. Major drawcards to this area include a plethora of state and private schools, and kindys within Yeronga, Annerley and Moorooka areas.
