This week’s House of the Week – 29 Herbert Street, Gladstone


THIS Californian Redwood home in the heart of Gladstone has character and features aplenty.

Within walking distance to Queens Park, the Windsor Shopping Centre, several schools and the centre of town, this three-bedroom family home has something for everyone.

The country style kitchen was remodelled about four years ago.

Overlooking the backyard, the kitchen is bright and light and comes with a Westinghouse dishwasher, pantry and serving hatch linking the kitchen to the dining/living room.

The open-plan dining and living room is on the north, capturing the midday sun.

A large built-in bookcase/storage/shelving unit separates the dining and living areas and provides interest to the space.

French doors lead from the living area outside onto a generous-sized concrete patio, which is sheltered from the westerly winds and provides an ideal space for entertaining friends and family.

All of the bedrooms are double in size and have built-in wardrobes.

The north-facing master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe with ample built-in storage.

French doors from the master bedroom open out onto the patio.

The bedrooms are serviced by a tidy bathroom which has a bath, toilet, vanity unit and built-in storage.

A shower is located in a separate room next to the bathroom and a second toilet is located at the rear of the home near the laundry.

The laundry is a good-sized space and comes with double tubs and a fold-out ironing board.

Heating is provided by two heat pumps, one in the living room and the other in the hallway.

There is a double internal access garage as well as off-street parking space available.

The home is situated on a fully fenced, low maintenance 908-square-metre section, complete with beautifully landscaped gardens, raised vegetable garden beds, a hot house and garden shed.
