There is no accounting for why Ferny Grove remains a well-kept secret. It's a glorious location, offering the best of both worlds between suburban convenience, and natural wonder. And at the heart of this beautiful area is 16 Corrofin Street, a two-storey family house with both character and style. Elevated in its quiet, family-friendly location, this is a home that will excite you with its possibilities as soon as you walk through the door.
A dramatic high ceiling and stunning windows soak the entrance way with light as you head toward a downstairs lounge and TV room that offers an escape for the kids and direct access into the garden, as well as another large room that can be used as a spare bedroom and home office all at the same time!
Back upstairs, and you'll be impressed by the striking, original floorboards and the open plan living space, with a large lounge, room for a generous dining table and an L-shaped kitchen that keeps the family together while meals are being prepared. There's plenty of surface and cupboard space, electric appliances, and plenty of natural light to bring the outdoors in.
The front veranda emphasises the elevated position, and is the perfect spot for enjoying the sunrise, listening to the birds, and even spotting the odd koala! A smaller veranda at the back, means that the sunset doesn't miss out either!
Still upstairs, and the bedrooms are all an excellent size, with all but one benefitting from fitted robes. There's a family bathroom with shower, vanity, and bath, as well as a separate toilet, with new fittings and decorating, which is a feature throughout the house.
Back downstairs, we head out into the garden, and it's easy to see that this is a space crying out for both kids and parents to relax and/or have fun. There's a separate area set aside for the kids to enjoy games without disturbing anyone else, and both areas are private and secure. The 'main' garden is low maintenance, with a covered dining area, lawn, high Colorbond fences and landscaping, as well as a giant shed to keep everything neat and tidy. And when a snack is required, a set of steps take you straight up to the kitchen/lounge. The spacious backyard has room to add a pool if you desire.
There's a huge double garage with room for two large cars, and still enough left over for a home gym or workspace, as well as a brand-new toilet and shower and understairs storage.
16 Corrofin Street typifies the safe, local feel of Ferny Grove. There's green space and nature wherever you turn, and yet everything you need is here. Some of Queensland's best schools, both private and public, are around the corner, shops, cafes a popular tavern and medical facilities also. The train station is a short walk and Brisbane CBD is only 30 minutes away via a direct train line. Perhaps it's time this well-kept secret revealed its delights!
