If Hollywood came to The Gap looking for a house that spoke of a timeless grandeur, with a location at one with nature, then 6 Kulan Street would be featured the next time you hit the Cinemas!
This 70's built, architecturally spectacular home is so full of peace and charm that - as the current owners told us - you could never be downhearted here. Cut into the foothills of Mount Coot-Tha, in The Gap's nature belt, it's hard to see the entire property from a single vantage point. But while the house hides many of its secrets from the outside, as you enter you are immediately charmed by this multi-level home, with breathtaking cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, full length glass and magnificent fireplace.
Deciding which way to explore this house for the first time is a challenge, but if we head up some steps to the right, we have a superb informal dining area that provides access to the front deck, ideal for sharing breakfast and catching up on the news of the day. From here, we have a kitchen with heaps of storage, a U-shaped work space, gas stove top and electric oven. There's space set aside for a TV room, but it could also be a study or a teenager's escape, with access to a large laundry beyond.
Stepping down, and you are emersed in the stunning lounge, with that fireplace, terracotta tiles and exposed brick throughout. It truly is a place with history that's looking for new stories to tell. To help those stories along, there's a large brick bar which opens up to the outside patio.
Also on this level, is a large area ideal for a home study, or with the capacity - via direct access from outside - to operate a small business. A guest bedroom offers an en suite also accessible from the study area.
Up to the top level, and we have a family bathroom with bath, shower and fitted cupboards, along with three good size bedrooms, with a master bedroom featuring old West swing doors, a shower and vanity.
Outside the charming features continues, with areas set aside to sit and enjoy the ever-changing light, including a delightful patio to watch the sun fade over the distant hills with a nice glass of wine.
There's a saltwater swimming pool and a double garage with a workbench, and a mezzanine den that will be an absolute delight for the young, and the young at heart.
The owners are sad to go, as they look to downsize, but this absolutely fabulous home will be the envy of your friends. Peaceful and surrounded by nature, 6 Kulan Street offers direct access into the labyrinth of bushwalking trails, and all corners of The Gap, including shops, school, medical facilities and eateries. And while it may be hard to imagine, you are only nine kilometres from the Brisbane CBD. Truly a home worth talking about.
