About this listing
Nestled on a tree-lined street within the sought-after and tightly held enclave of St Johns Wood is 26 Piddington Street. Surrounded by quality character homes, this much loved family residence is not at all the small worker's cottage it appears to be from the roadside.

This character home was renovated to meet the competing needs of teenagers and a younger child along with the need for a home office and entertaining space.
The result is, effectively, two residences in one with a cleverly concealed architect-designed extension repeating the Queenslander influences of the original post-World War II dwelling.

Fresh and welcoming, 26 Piddington Street sit on an elevated 607sqm block and features:

- 3 Separate living areas provide space and separation for all stages of family life.
- Spacious kitchen with ample storage and bench space.
- Dining area that seamlessly flows, through French doors, to a generous entertainer's deck for year-round living.
- Master bedroom with air-conditioning, built-in robe and ensuite.
- 2 bedrooms, the 3rd living area and 3rd bathroom are all located on the lower level. This versatile space is separate from the main house but is linked by a boardwalk and stairs. Plumbing for a kitchenette has been approved and is in place under floor, making this space idea as guest quarters, a home business or teenage retreat.
- 2 car accommodation.

All of this is surrounded by lush, low maintenance gardens providing a safe and fenced place for children and pets.

26 Piddington Street, one of the first 12 houses to be built in post-World War II Brisbane, has grown with the times to offer decades of comfortable family living.
The location:

- Located in the catchment areas for Ashgrove State School (approximately 700m away) and The Gap State High School (approximately 2.9km away).
- An easy walk to Marist College via GPS Oval and dedicated walk/bike path.
- Just minutes to Mount St Michael's College and Mater Dei Primary School.
- Handy public transport includes a regular city bound bus route (379) that includes bus stops in St Johns Wood and a short walk to Waterworks Road bus access to the CBD and Southbank.
- Surrounded by parks and walking/bike paths lined by natural bush.
- A choice of local cages and eateries, including Banneton Bakery, Macho Macho, The Local Larder & Wine Bar and The Green Mango, are within walking distance.
- Ashgrove Golf Club, Taylor Range Country club and supermarkets are all within easy reach.
