24 Chaprowe Road, THE GAP
This stunning home will make the dreams of today a reality tomorrow
From the outside, some homes try very hard to hold on to their secrets. 24 Chaprowe Road presents as a solid, compact, country cottage style house amidst a tidy, landscaped front garden. And then, in an almost fairy-tale moment, you step through the front door into a glorious home filled with amazing light, plush floorboards, lavish living areas and a true sense of homeliness.
There’s a lot to enjoy here, and yet space has been used productively and creatively throughout the ground floor. Immediately to the right there’s a dining area for those everyday meals, with views out over the garden and, to the left, a magical lounge, with a stunning angular window that turns the natural light into a feature. Across this front area of the house, the high wall voids above have been replicated to increase the sense of airiness and height.
The lounge flows into the truly epic outdoor area through striking bi-fold doors; but more on that in a moment.
The kitchen impresses immediately, with a beautiful red splashback, Caesarstone benchtops, soft closing doors and a six-burner gas stove. But there are subtleties too; with heaps of cupboard space, under-stair pantry, display cabinetry and fitted wine storage.
Before we head upstairs, there’s a modern family bathroom and laundry, all shining and fresh, with large tiles joining the space. There’s also a spacious bedroom, which could be used as a home study or office.
Upstairs we have magnificent floorboards throughout. The master bedroom is charming, with huge fitted cupboards, and a modern en suite. Two other delightfully decorated bedrooms have fitted cupboards, and plenty of natural light. The gorgeous family bathroom features a luxuriant bath for those all-to-rare cool Queensland evenings.
On returning outside, we can see the family hub of this home. There are two lounge/entertaining areas across paved and wooden decked space, along with a lawn and beautiful swimming pool, that offers oodles of space on the surrounding deck for sun lovers.
The double garage, accessed by an easement/shared driveway, has a secret, and that secret is an enormous workshop and storage area with possible uses beyond imagination.
By their own admission, the current owners have been serial movers; but this home has kept them longer than ever before. It’s all down to the calm, warm, private and homely feel. This hidden sanctuary is hard not to fall in love with. And that’s without mentioning that Chaprowe Road is centrally located in The Gap with schools, shops, eateries and sports facilities all within walking distance. Green space abounds, and the creek walks will take you from your front door all the way into the city. Seeing really is believing.
