Families desiring a charming character filled home in one of Brisbane's most attractive and tightly held residential pockets need look no further than 78 Lodge Road, Kalinga. Elegantly sprawled across an expansive 810 sqm double block on two titles, this stunning family residence provides a spacious low maintenance sanctuary with unrivalled entertaining, living and working zones.
Upon entering the private front gate you will be welcomed by the beautifully manicured and landscaped front garden and porch leading up to the entrance of the home on the lower level. Here you are greeted by a spacious light filled fully tiled lounge area which seamlessly flows out through charming French doors to the generous fully covered patio area, tranquil in-ground pool and meticulously landscaped backyard - perfect for enjoying family BBQ's, summer cricket games and the Queensland lifestyle. The lower level also accommodates an expansive multipurpose room, complete with separate front entrance affording flexibility with the option to operate a business from home.
The upper level oozes warmth and charm with many of the character features of the original federation home retained. This Queenslander was built around the turn of the century (1900) and has the original federation breezeways and gas lighting pipe at the upper front door.
