IT IS the little things we take for granted that draw interstate buyers to character homes.
Hailing from Melbourne, the character of the quaint Queenslander cottage at 24 Albury St, Deagon, was what attracted Melissa Henwood.
“The windows, believe it or not, were what I fell in love with,” Ms Henwood said.
“They’re traditional Queenslander windows … completely different from what I have at home.”
Ms Henwood and her partner spent time putting a modern flavour on the house, while maintaining character features and adding a giant entertainment deck on the back — which has an outdoor kitchen and a wall-mount for a television.
“We increased the size, created a bigger outdoor living area, new front veranda and renovated inside completely,” Ms Henwood said.
Inside the house are classic Queensland features from polished timber floorboards, VJ walls and picture rails.
There are three bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, and a shared bathroom.
There is a carport, and two sheds also on the 405sq m block.
