If you're a connoisseur of classic architectural design and the gracefulness that it embodies, you'll feel right at home as soon as you arrive at 32 Petmar Street, The Gap.
The exterior of this private residence is big, bold and built with a dark brick veneer that magnifies its size, stateliness and appeal. Stepping through the front door, and into the living room, the raked ceiling and red feature wall will tip you off that this is no ordinary house. The expansive, open area downstairs - it's built over two levels - has polished concrete floors, with a step-down onto an area laid with African Slate Tiles and houses a timber bar (yes, that kind of bar) to stock and pour your favourite tipple. You'll have to first enter in through the secure intercom access - enabled over both floors - to get there!
The adjacent kitchen, which shares space with the dining room, is equipped with a separate Electrolux Oven and Electrolux 4-burner range, a Dishlex range hood, Mondella tap ware and to make washing-up a breeze, an AEG Dishwasher. The floors continue with African Slate Tiles in their dark and broody hues, and the space also warms the heart, if the food hasn't, with a wood-burning fire place.
There's also a bathroom downstairs for localised convenience for those on the lower level that includes a sink, shower with hand shower and toilet, decorated in a combination of Red Cedar and tile walls, an interior design theme that runs throughout the home's amenities. The laundry is also adjacent, opening on to the north side of the home and an external clothesline.
Downstairs living is also enhanced at the front by doors that open onto a large, paved patio and enjoys the privacy of native brush and Jacaranda trees - perfect for kids who love to climb! The rear of the downstairs area is equally attractive and opens onto another generously-sized patio, but shares its backyard expanse with an array of Paradise Palms, a returfed area, native flora, attractive quarry stone, an undercover entertaining area and fully-fenced kidney-shaped saltwater pool. In fact, the entire residence, apart from the planted privacy of the front, is fenced. The blonde, timber stairway that's immediately noticeable as you enter 32 Petmar Street, leads to the upstairs area that comprises three lofty bedrooms and a study. The entire space is carpeted, with all of the bedrooms featuring remote-controlled split-system AC units with major brands like Panasonic and Fujitsu, and built-in wardrobes. All of the bedrooms also have ceiling fans to keep cooling costs down when air-conditioning isn't a consideration, and a 5kW 20-panel solar energy system aides in keeping costs to a minimum as well.
The spacious master bedroom looks out onto the backyard and pool and has an envious ensuite with shower, toilet and sink, and continues the warmth of the Red Cedar and tile walls combination. There's also a walk-in wardrobe that's spacious with plenty of hangar space and drawers.
Upstairs, you'll also bask in the era of a classic master bathroom with spa tub and hand shower, toilet and sink, and accented once more with the radiance of Red Cedar and tile walls. And if it's storage space you're looking for, you'll also find that 32 Petmar Street has that in spades too. There's a double-car lock-up garage with room to move, a pull-down staircase for access to even more storage above the garage, exterior storage room around the perimeter of the 642m2 property and numerous nooks and crannies.
When combined with other nearby attractions that lie within 5km of this residence such as Hilder Road State School, The Gap Primary School, The Gap State High School, gyms and racquet clubs, The Gap Village Shopping Centre, The Enoggera Reservoir and its recreational activities, the Ashgrove Golf Course, express public transport into Brisbane's CBD and more, you'll discover that the classic charm and grace 32 Petmar Street is where a lifetime of memories living in The Gap can easily be made.
