This is a rare 1940's solid brick 2 bedroom home in Coorparoo, that exemplifies the original and unique architectural style of the area. This property was one of the first built in this area, as seen in the earliest aerial photographs of Brisbane. It sits at a high point in the area, offering some city views. There are original ornate plaster ceilings and polished timber floors, with a fireplace and a swimming pool. The "Observation Deck" was a finalist in small projects category at Architecture Queensland Awards. Coorparoo is known for this style of home, and this is likely one of the earlier examples.

The block is zoned as CR1 and pre war, so cannot be redeveloped, with some limitations on extensions/ modifications. The kitchen has been renovated, and the old dining room turned into a walk in pantry. The living room offers a cosy and warm space. The original garage has been turned into an artist studio (Class 10 building). Where the old kitchen was (from a prior renovation) has been demolished and is now a small deck. The original front porch was enclosed and now forms a small study, while the original "mud room" remains open.

This is a solid brick home, with all walls being completely solid and running straight into the foundations. This is old school construction, with hardwood beams and terracotta tiles.

Pros:
Lovely character.
It's Coorparoo, which is lovely.
High set.
Original wood floors and fireplace.
Modern and practical, yet modest kitchen.
Modern bathroom.
Air-conditioned.
600m2 block
Solid old school construction.
Cool deck.
Great for entertaining and summer.
Salt water pool.
Self-contained studio with its own kitchenette and bathroom is handy for grandparents or older kids.
Fully fenced for pets and little ones.
Close to the city, with bus stop directly in front of the house
Gas (bottle) for hot water and cooking.
Close to Eva St shops, and walking distance to Martha St and Cavendish Road restaurants.

Cons (to respect everyone's time):
It's a busy road.
No on street parking.
It needs some TLC to realise it's potential.
No laundry or dining room. No garage or under house storage.
Weird shaped block. No large backyard, and the pool is in the front.
It can't be redeveloped and there are restrictions on what you can do with it.
It's small (but cute).
Artist studio is not council approved for anything other than Class 10.
